Keto-Cheeseburger-Muffins

Love cheeseburgers but miss the bread?

You’ve gotta check out these YUMMY keto cheeseburger muffins that taste so similar to a real cheeseburger and bun! They’re so fun to make and serve at your next cookout or for game day, and they remind me of cheeseburger sliders but in a bread-like, delicious muffin!

This recipe is fast and easy to make, similar to our breakfast sausage muffins that have ground sausage – except for with these, you’ll use ground beef and any of your favorite keto-friendly burger toppings!

ingredients to make fat head dough cheeseburger muffins

The secret to the bread in these keto muffins is Fat Head dough!

Fat Head dough is such a game changer for adapting recipe ideas to fit into a keto lifestyle, because of its versatility and appealing taste/texture. It’s so similar to real bread, and it uses just a few ingredients.

Fathead dough is so easy to make, too!

The process is mainly melting cheese and almond flour in the microwave, adding an egg, and mixing everything together. This type of dough is sticky, but the more you stir, the more pliable it becomes. (I find it helpful to also store the dough in the fridge for a few minutes while making the filling for your muffins.) While you can season your Fat Head dough any way you’d like, I used Everything But the Bagel seasoning (it was so YUM).

We’ve used this dough in low-carb recipes like Pizza, Taco Stuffed Breadsticks, and Keto Pigs in a Blanket, and today we’re going all out CHEESEBURGER mode!

My super easy process for creating these cheeseburger muffins:

After the dough is made, I cooked the filling on the stove using ground beef and some chopped onion.

I formed six balls from the dough using my hands and flattened them to fit in a jumbo 6-muffin tin. Then I filled the muffins evenly with ground beef mixture, topped with cheese, and baked in the oven. Finally, I added our favorite burger toppings and keto-friendly condiments after baking to serve.

Hip Tip: Dough too sticky? Use oil on your hands and grease the pan well with oil before baking to avoid sticking. I use coconut oil.

So melty and satisfying!

I love when the dough has a nice brown texture around the edges like this, and it’s so tasty with the meat and cheese combination. These are pretty rich and filling too, and they were so easy to prepare. Make these for your hungry crowd, and you’ll have a lot of smiling faces!

    Made these tonight and my husband enjoyed. I thought these would be an easy make ahead lunch option for him. Thanks!

      Yes!!! That’s so wonderful – thanks for sharing Suzy!

    Made these for dinner tonight and even my non-keto husband loved them. With a side of air-fried radishes, one was more than filling. I will enjoy having some leftovers for quick re-heat lunches.

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Yummy! I need to try the radishes! I’m so glad you all enjoyed – thanks for sharing Laurie.
