Keto Stuffed burgers, often referred to as Juicy Lucys, are easy burgers that might come off intimidating to some, but they’re really quite simple to make! By encasing the most delicious fillings inside a little ground beef, you’ll end up with a keto stuffed burger that just oozes deliciousness with each bite
I’ve been creation stuffed burgers for a while now and will often add cheese, veggies, and any other keto-friendly filling I can find. But for some reason, I’ve never found a filling mixture that I thought, “wow, I need to tell people about this!”.
So what’s inside this supernatural burger? How about a blend of cool cream cheese, spicy jalapeño, and savory bacon. This mixture ensures each bite of the burger will treat your taste buds to an explosion of flavor!
Keto Stuffed Burgers
- 1 lb. ground beef
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 teaspoon pepper
- 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
- 4 oz. cream cheese
- 2 jalapeños, diced
- 1 cup crumbled bacon
First, In a little bowl, add cream cheese, jalapeño, and crumbled bacon, mixing all ingredients together. Scoop out a 2″ spoonful of cream cheese and form into a disk.
Put the disks in the refrigerator for at least 15-20 minutes. You could also freeze them for future use.
Forming Hamburger Patties:
Then, Divide hamburger meat into 6 equal portion and flatten into hamburger patties. For the base patties, you will press until you reach 1/2″ thick.
The middle portion you will want to press to reach 1/4″ thick creating a bowl effect which is where you will put a cream cheese disk. For the top hamburger patty, they should be around 1/4″ thick. Season with salt, pepper, and garlic powder on each side.
Put a cream cheese disk in the center of the bottom hamburger patty.
Add a top patty to cover the disc and press on the sides to seal the burger. This will look like a single thick burger. Continue until all burgers have been formed.
How to Grill:
Personally, I like to grill my burgers to be medium doneness, but feel free to change it up depending on your favorite. To achieve just the right amount of pink for medium, grill for about 5 minutes per side.
Put burgers on a keto bun, lettuce wrap, or just eat it bunless. These burgers will be very tasty on their own so no need for all the usual extras. Enjoy!
