bacon burger bomb cut open to reveal melted cheese

Attention, keto burger fans! 🍔

Love bacon, burgers, and avocados? You’re gonna want to head outside and fire up that BBQ grill to make these delicious low-carb, keto-friendly, avocado-stuffed, bacon-wrapped burger bombs — that’s quite the mouthful!

These burger bombs are basically any low-carb-loving person’s dream meal, and it’s such a unique spin on the typical cheeseburger.

Bacon burger bombs are actually pretty simple and fun to make.

The basic idea is to stuff a whole (pitted) avocado with cheese, wrap it with ground beef and bacon, and grill it to perfection. The result is a melted cheesy meaty burger bomb sure to satisfy your keto appetite. We added chopped onions and jalapeños to our ground beef to spice things up!

Hip tips for making the best Bacon Avocado Burger Bombs:

    • Use any type of shredded cheese, any desired keto-friendly seasonings, and add-ins.
    • Try using softer cheeses, as aged cheeses don’t melt enough. I also found that using a large chunk of cheese doesn’t melt as nicely as shredded will.
    • Choose a thinner cut of bacon, so it gets crispy and fully cooks easily.
    • Choose a small/medium avocado, or maybe just wrap half of one if using large avocados.
    • Use a meat thermometer to read the temperature of the meat if possible. 160 degrees internal temperature is cooked to medium.
    • Take this meal to throw on the grill for an easy keto dinner while camping!

    Hi, I want to try these for dinner tonight, what would be your recommended baking instructions since I cannot use a grill? Thanks

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Hi Becca! You can bake these at 400 degrees and then follow the same instructions. Use a meat thermometer to read the temperature of meat if possible. 160 degrees internal temperature is cooked to medium. Enjoy!

    LOL, I am sitting here drooling just reading the instructions and looking at the pics. Your presentation of the cut ball is lovely but I think I will try to finely chunk up the avocado and then mix with the shredded cheese. Thank you for posting ­čÖé

    How long do u bake them?

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Hi there! If baking them, you could start with 30 minutes or so until done, at 350 degrees. Let us know how they turn out for you!

  10. Kathy Lund

    Just thought I would say this, cut your avocados in half a take the pit out before you peel them. It is almost impossible to do it afterwards.

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Thanks for the tip, Kathy!
