Keto Burger Buns
Every 'Low carber' / 'ketoer' is always in search of a good bread recipe. If you find one you keep it because good keto breads are hard to find. As usual this is a recipe variant from my very popular fathead dough bread recipe which I love. Since making that bread, I have made lots of variations from it because I find that it helps me stay on course. It hits the right spot for my bread cravings.
How to make these fat head keto hamburger buns.
- Start with making your modified fat head dough.
- Divide them and put them in these mini pie baking dishes. Easy right?
- Bake to perfection and enjoy.
This recipe makes 4 standard sized keto burger buns or 6 flatter buns. Depending on your carb allotment you can decide to make them into 4 or 6 buns. For 4 burger buns, net carbs count is 7.5g per bun. which you can do if you are doing OMAD ( One Meal A Day) or if you don't mind a burger taking up most of your 20g carbs quota for the day it's actually very filling. For 6 burger buns net carbs count is 4.9g per bun.
You can use a standard muffin pan if you are making six buns. This will make the bun taller.

Tips to get these fat head keto burger buns right
- Getting the dough right is a very important part of the process. Therefore when melting the mozzarella cheese and cream cheese, make sure the cheese melts evenly and completely.
- Fat head dough can be quite sticky, wet hands can mix it better.
- I love to use cold eggs instead of room temperature eggs. I haven't had any problems with that.
- Grease your baking dish properly

- Put the cream cheese, and shredded Mozzarella cheese in a microwave safe bowl and microwave in 30 seconds iintervals until cheese is evenly melted. Remember to stir in between ( helps to distribute the heat. ) it usually takes me about 1 min 30 secs in total sometimes 2 mins.

- Depending on your needs, divide the dough into 4 or 6 equal parts and transfer into well greased mini pie dishes.
- Sprinkle sesame seeds on top, Then bake in the oven for 10 to 12 mins or until the top is golden brown
- Bring out of the oven, allow to cool.
Asembling the burger
- Cut the bun into half, Spread a light layer of butter on each surface.
- Place buttered surface down on a heated up skillet to toast lightly.
- Place your burger fillings ( lettuce, cooked mince beef in between the burger buns and enjoy.
- When you make these into 4 buns the net carbs would be about 7 grams so its best to have that on a day you plan to do OMAD (one meal a day)
- If these are made into 6 buns which is recommended if you want to keep net carbs pretty low. Be aware that the buns would be a little flatter except you use a muffin pan for it.
