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
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!
Do u peel the avacados
Yes! They are peeled and pitted.
Can I use sausage
I bet that would be yummy too! Let us know how it turns out if you give it a try!
Does anyone have any idea how well the would freeze precook? They were amazing and if love to prep quite a few at once.
Hi Ashley! We haven’t tied it, however these foods are freezer friendly and it should work out fine! Hope this helps!
What a fun recipe! 💕
Hope you enjoy it, Lisa!
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 🙂
You are welcome! I hope you find one that you can make easily and enjoy, Leslie!
Can’t wait to try!!!
I sure hope you love it!
Thanks so much!
How long do u bake them?
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!
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.
Thanks for the tip, Kathy!
Absolutely delish! I used a combination of ground pork and lean beef and a smoked cheddar. The temp on the BBQ was at 325 for 45 minutes and they were perfect, only flipping them during the last 10 minutes. I added parsley, garlic, oregano and egg to my meat. I used a small tray on the BBQ so the meat didn’t drip into my grills. Perfect! Wish I could send you a picture..i did tag you on instagram
YUM! Sounds delicious! Thanks for letting us know how great yours turned out! 🙌💖
