If you're into keto this cheeseburger muffin recipe by Lina is an absolute must-try! It only took me one bite before I was hooked!
I eat a lot of keto foods, but I'm always looking for something new. And I've tried a lot of keto cheeseburger muffins and while they were all pretty delicious, Lina's recipe is by far my favorite. They're fast and easy to make and you can top them with any of your favorite keto-friendly burger toppings.
The thing that makes them so good is the fathead dough. Fathead dough is easy to make too. It’s so similar to real bread, and it uses just a few ingredients.
The process is mainly melting cheese and almond flour in the microwave, adding an egg, and mixing everything together. This type of dough is sticky, but the more you stir, the more pliable it becomes. If it is a little too sticky you can put it in the fridge for a few minutes.
INGREDIENTS For the Fathead Dough:
3/4 cup almond flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 3/4 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
2 tablespoons cream cheese
1 teaspoon Everything But the Bagel Seasoning
For the Filling:
1 pound ground beef
1/4 cup chopped onion
2 tablespoon no sugar added ketchup
1 tablespoon mustard
1/4 teaspoon of salt (or to taste)
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
6 tablespoons shredded cheddar cheese
other keto-friendly burger toppings, as desired
DIRECTIONS Preheat oven to 400 degrees. In a microwave-safe mixing bowl, combine almond flour, baking powder mozzarella cheese, and cream cheese. Melt in the microwave for one minute. Stir and then cook for an additional 30 seconds in the microwave. Mix in egg, salt, and Italian seasoning, and stir. Keep stirring unit mixture forms a dough, and form into a ball. Place in the fridge for a few minutes if it's very sticky. On the stove, crumble ground beef and onions together and cook through. Season with salt, pepper, and garlic powder. Stir in mustard and no sugar added ketchup. Generously grease a 6-cup muffin tin. Divide the dough into 6 sections, and roll each into a ball. Flatten each ball using your hand and place inside each muffin cup. Fill each tin with the meat mixture. Sprinkle shredded cheese on top of each muffin. Bake in the oven for 12-13 minutes until the dough is cooked and slightly brown. Serve warm with keto-friendly toppings as desired. Enjoy!
