Tomato Bun Cheeseburger
Eating a keto burger could not get any fresher than eating a tomato bun cheeseburger! And it is pretty easy on the budget! It’s smells fresh, tastes juicy, and it is loaded with immune boosting Vitamin C. I have made a lot of keto hamburgers, but this is a new one for you to try. No carb, calorie, or fat checking, just natural goodness at its best. So, let’s get to the simple details.
I started out with a fresh hamburger steak patty. However, you can use whatever hamburger meat you want. Since this is a tomato bun cheeseburger, you will need a large firm beefsteak tomato for the bun. Gently cut the tomato down the center to get the largest portions for the bun. Use a sharp knife to avoid bruising or smashing the tomato while you are cutting it. If the tomato is large enough, you may be able to make two tomato bun cheeseburgers with one tomato.
Tomatoes are juicy! So, place each slice on a paper towel to pat both sides dry. Then you will basically prepare this tomato bun cheeseburger the way you would prepare any other cheeseburger. I started with a little mayo, hamburger meat, cheese, lettuce, bacon, and avocado. This is how this tomato bun cheeseburger was made.
So, let’s get to the tomato bun cheeseburger recipe.
Tomato Bun Cheeseburger
- 2 Beefsteak Tomatoes
- 1/2 c. Lettuce
- 4 Bacon Slices
- 4 Cheese Slices
- 1/2 c. Avocado (Sliced, Cubed)
- 1/4 c. Purple Onions (Diced)
- Mayo (Optional)
- Use a medium mixing bowl to add all the beef ingredients. Mash and stir the ingredients together well with a fork.
- Once the raw beef has been thoroughly mixed with the seasonings, divide the mixture into 4 equal parts.
- With clean hands, knead the ground beef a little in your hands before rolling in a ball. Place the ball on a stovetop grill or in a large skillet. Flatten the ground beef into a large patty. The ground beef patty will shrink as it cooks, so make the patty slightly larger than you want it to be when it is cooked.
- Turn the grill on medium to low heat. Let the hamburger patty cook for about 8 minutes on one side before flipping to the other.
- Once the ground beef is well done, remove it from any excess grease and add the cheese.
- Use the largest area of the beefsteak tomato to cut two ½ inch thick slices of tomato.
- Set them both on a napkin and use another napkin to dap away any excess juice.
- Add mayo to both slices of the tomato and then place the burger on one half.
- The add your lettuce, avocado, onions, and bacon before covering it with the second slice of tomato.
- Use a napkin for this juicy hamburger treat.
This burger is very filling all by itself. However, if you would like a unique side dish to go with this tomato bun cheeseburger, the green bean fries may be a nice match.
