Bunless Burgers

Bunless Burgers

I love a good burger. I especially love a flavorful burger without feeling lethargic afterward. I started eating my burgers without buns about 5 years ago. By doing this, I took away the carbs. Without the bun, I was able to taste and enjoy all the ingredients even more.


  • 2 lbs ground beef
  • 2 tbsp dijon mustard
  • 1/2 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 tsp cracked pepper
  • 1 tsp kosher salt
  • Shredded cheese
  • Tomato
  • Red onion
  • Romaine lettuce
  • Avocado
  • Bacon
  • 1 egg (optional)
  • Pickles (optional)
  • Additional condiments (Your choice)


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
  2. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Measure 1/3 cup of shredded cheese and make into a circle, spreading evenly. Make 2 circles, spaced at least 3 inches apart.
  3. Bake for 5 minutes or until little holes have appeared in the surface and the edges begin to brown. I like my edge golden brown.
  4. Remove from oven and transfer to paper towel to soak up any excess grease. NOTE: Allow cheese crisp to rest for 2 minutes to harden.
  5. Slice tomato, red onion, and lettuce; set aside.
  6. Fry desired strips of bacon and set aside.
  7. Combine ground beef, pepper, salt, mustard and Worcestershire sauce.
  8. Gently form mixture into 8 patties. 
  9. Heat grill or skillet to high.
  10. Cook patties 2-3 minutes per side (if you make them thicker, you’ll need to cook them longer).
  11. Assemble burgers with remaining ingredients as desired with lettuce on the top and bottom to hold ingredients in.
  12. Add a fried egg desired.
