Love cheeseburgers but miss the buns?
You’ve gotta check out these YUMMY keto cheeseburger muffins that taste so similar to a real cheeseburger and bun, but they’re keto! 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 cheeseburger 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.
Start out this recipe by making mozzarella cheese and almond flour Fathead dough!
Fathead 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.

Hip tips for making keto cheeseburger 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). Try our copycat Everything But the Bagel seasoning recipe.
- Dough too sticky? Use oil on your hands and grease the pan well with oil before baking to avoid sticking. I use coconut oil. You can also place the dough in the fridge for a bit for it to dry out if too wet.
- Confused about which condiments are low carb? Be sure to check out our keto condiment guide.
- Keto cheeseburger muffins can be stored in the fridge in a container for up to 4 days and reheated as desired.
So melty and satisfying!
I love it 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!
