You’ll never be able to look at burgers the same after trying this keto stuffed burgers recipe.
We’ve all had the classic bacon cheeseburger and maybe you’ve made stuffed burgers before at home. But have you ever had a cheddar bacon ranch stuffed burger? Or even a ranch bacon cheeseburger? This recipe takes stuffed burgers to another level entirely. Trust us, you have to try this burger recipe.
This tasty stuffed burger gets a double hit of flavor from both Ranch seasoning and cheddar. The burger filling is made with a Ranch seasoning packet and Ranch dressing! And there’s Ranch dressing on the keto buns too. Believe me, there’s no lack of herby Ranch goodness here. 😂 You could even make your own Ranch seasoning using this recipe.
Love cheese? Shredded sharp cheddar cheese is used in the filling and a slice of sharp cheddar is melted on top. Yum! Is your mouth watering yet?
Get ready to impress with these keto stuffed burgers!
Making stuffed burgers is a great way to kick off barbeque season. These are definitely a crowd-pleaser and have the perfect balance of flavor with the cheddar, bacon, and ranch in the filling. It’s hard to believe that something that tastes this good is keto!
A store-bought keto bun is pictured but you could eat these with a lettuce wrap, use our homemade keto bun recipe, or on their own to reduce the overall carb count.
Helpful tips for making keto cheddar bacon ranch stuffed burgers:
- The recipe does make extra filling. You could use the extra filling to make more burgers or as a topping for your burgers
- Bacon ends and pieces are great for bacon crumbles. You can usually find them for much less than regular bacon. The package I bought was less than $5 for three pounds!
- When you’re stuffing the burgers, make sure you pinch the edges of the patties together really well to “seal” in the filling, otherwise, it might open up when you’re grilling.
- Keep in mind that the pictured burgers are medium-rare (that’s how we like them at my house!), but if you like your burgers medium or well-done, you’ll need to increase the cooking time.
- If you don’t have a barbeque, you can pan-sear the burgers in a skillet over medium-high heat for approximately five to six minutes per side.
- You can make your own keto ketchup instead of buying a store-bought brand.

“This was my first time making a stuffed burger and it went perfectly. The burgers are moist and full of flavor with the bacon and ranch stealing the show. We used lettuce instead of buns and it was fantastic! These are the best burgers and super easy to make, plus very filling! My whole family loved them!”
