Bacon Cheeseburger Keto Kebabs
Bunless burgers are a staple in most Keto diets. They’re a great low-carb option you can get at nearly any restaurant, and they’re easy to whip up at home.
But, I have to admit, I was missing the hand-held part of the experience. A burger just isn’t quite the same when you eat it with a knife and fork.
Bacon cheeseburger Keto kebabs, to the rescue! Friends, this is going to become your new favorite way to eat burgers. It’s the kind of dish that just puts a smile on your face.
These burger kebabs are also perfect for summer picnics or backyard parties. This recipe is such a fun twist on a classic, nobody will even miss the bun.
Plus, the kebabs look great on a platter. Who doesn’t love a nice presentation, right? Before you know it, your friends and family will be asking you to make these tasty skewers every time you get together!
Topping Ideas For Your Keto Kebabs
Naturally, we all have our favorite burger toppings. Can you incorporate those into your cheeseburger kebabs?
As long as the toppings are easily skewered, then absolutely! There are endless combinations you can create.
I chose cheese, bacon, lettuce, tomato, and pickle for an undeniably classic burger experience. Onion would be good as well, as long as the flavor isn’t too strong.
Like it spicy? You could replace the pickle chips with some jalapeño slices to give it a little kick. Maybe even swap out the cheddar for some pepperjack!
Love mushrooms? I recommend picking a larger variety, like portobello, to make them easier to skewer. Slice, cook to your liking, then stack them onto your Keto kebab!
Just make sure that whatever toppings you add will stay put on the skewer. For example, you may love avocado on your burger, but the mushy slices probably won’t stay on the kebab very well.
Definitely don’t try adding a fried egg. That simply won’t end well.
Can I Have Ketchup On Keto?
When it comes to condiments, sauces, or salad dressings, my advice is always the same: read your labels!
There are some great sugar-free and Keto-friendly ketchup brands out there. As long as the nutrition fits your macros and you can pronounce most of the ingredients, you should be good.
You could also make my homemade ketchup with a kick! The beauty of making condiments at home is that you have full control over the ingredients.
What Sides Should I Serve With Keto Burger Kebabs?
If you’re used to pairing burgers with fries and chips, you maybe looking for some side inspiration that isn’t just “mixed greens.” C’mon, we want to make this meal fun!
For something closer to fries, these seasoned cauliflower tater tots are a great option! When served hot, the taste and texture is just like traditional tater tots.
How To Make Bacon Cheeseburger Keto Kebabs
