Keto Recipes > Dinner

I know plenty of people out there love a good burger and want to skip the bun…but we’re all tired of burger patties and salads. It’s just not the same, until now!

Next time you are grilling up some patties, use the perfect low carb hamburger pun – a portobello mushroom! Now you can enjoy that burger bun 100% carb free 🙂

Have vegetarians over? Not a problem! Use only the portobello bun and server that as a patty. Pile the fixin’s high and let them chomp away.

If you need lower macros on this one, it’s really easy. Just get smaller portobello caps, and use less meat. Switch to chicken or turkey, and make some sliders instead!
