Asembling the burger

  • 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.
