Every day, I receive emails from keto dieters who say, “I AM SO SICK OF EATING EGGS.”

I also get emails saying, “Easy recipes, please!” As a certified Easy Recipe Creator (that’s not a real thing of course, but I am the last person on the planet capable of dreaming up a complex recipe), I am happy to deliver an easy, egg-free keto recipe with this post.

Keto Butter Burgers: The Ultimate Savory Fat Bomb

I call them Keto Butter Burgers, and with 10g fat per mini-burger, they are the ultimate savory fat bomb. Have them for breakfast, lunch, dinner, or a snack — they’re perfect any time of the day! They’re easy to transport and taste great reheated.

Oh, and did I mention that they’ll make your kitchen smell like you just brought home McDonald’s food? The beef-butter-cheese ingredient combo must be magical to give these Butter Burgers have that perfect McDonald’s smell (without the carbs!).

These are also great for making egg cups and fat bombs!

How to Make Keto Butter Burgers

You’ll have these savory fat bombs ready in no time! Don’t be intimidated by the number of steps; they’re all super easy.

Step #1: First start by preheating your oven to 350 degrees.

Step #2: In a medium-sized bowl, combine ground beef with your desired amount of salt and pepper. Optionally, add onion powder and/or garlic powder.

Step #3: Press a small amount of beef (about 1 tbsp) into the bottom of a non-stick, 12-slot muffin pan so the bottom is fully covered.

NOTE: If you use a silicone muffin pan, place the silicone pan on a sheet pan to prevent the oil from spilling when you remove the pan from the oven. (I didn’t do this the first time and it wasn’t a smart move!)

Step #4: Add a pat of butter to the top of each piece of beef.

Step #5: Again add beef to the top. Press to flatten.

Step #6: Add a small piece of cheese to the beef.

Step #7: Add a final layer of beef. (It’s okay if you don’t have quite enough beef left to fully cover the top of the cheese.) Press to flatten.

Step #8: Place the muffin pan in the oven and bake for 10 minutes.

Step #9: A very important step! When the baking is complete, turn OFF the oven and crack the oven door for a few minutes to release the heat (if using a silicone muffin pan, wait 10 minutes).

Step #10: A very important step! Please be VERY CAREFUL before removing your muffin pan from the oven because the fat from the beef and butter will be very hot.

Step #11: Using a fork, remove each Butter Burger from the pan and place on a plate.

NOTE: There will be a delicious beef fat/butter combo remaining in the muffin pan. Save this and use it to drizzle on your Butter Burgers, cook veggies, etc.

What to Serve with Keto Butter Burgers

You can eat each savory fat bomb on its own, or you can serve with low-carb veggies of your choosing. A bed of mixed green is always a great choice! To drink, you could serve these alongside a keto coffeeketo cocktail, or sparkling water.

How to Reheat Keto Butter Burgers

You can reheat this recipe one of a few ways:

  • In the microwave. Fast and easy!
  • In a pan on the stove. This is a nice option because it browns them nicely. Use some of the leftover burger fat/butter as your frying oil.
  • On the grill… maybe. I haven’t tried this yet and they might be a bit too small for a regular grill. A George Foreman grill would work great though!

  • Fantastic recipe. I’d include 100% grass fed cheese only the dairies that fall under that category guarantee the consumers that they will receive the most amount of nutrients from this food.

  • yes they are very good but very time consuming to weigh and measure all the ingredients then to put it all together…over an hour just to get everything together before it could be cooked..but delicious they are

    • Hi Linda,

      I am happy to hear you loved the flavor but I am so sorry it was such a time-consuming process for you! It only took me about 10 minutes to measure and assemble anything. Here are a few suggestions that may help:

      -I measured the first amount of beef I added (about 1 tbsp), but then just “winged it” for the rest, making sure they were about the same size visually.
      -I roughly divided the butter and cheese into 12 portions but didn’t weigh them; I just made sure they were about the same size visually.

      I know this doesn’t make them exactly the same macro-wise, but if you plan to eat all of them over a course of a few days, it will even out. (If they were carb-heavy I wouldn’t take a lax approach, but these are carb-free.)

      I hope that helps a bit. Thank you for trying the recipe!

    • Hi Robin! The butter infuses a really amazing flavor into the burgers. Try them with butter next time if you can — it makes them taste extra-amazing!
