Holding keto burger wrapped in cabbage

Sometimes a person just needs to bite into a big juicy BURGER, am I right?!

There’s something so satisfying about creating an incredible cheeseburger on keto without feeling deprived. For me, a great big juicy burger is the way to go as it’s simple, quick to make, and is delicious and filling!

Ultimate keto burger wrapped in cabbage

Create a yummy burger wrap using cabbage instead of lettuce!

Unlike lettuce, the cabbage wraps around the burger are much easier and a more substantial way to hold a bunless burger in your hands. I really enjoyed it, and of course, I happen to like the taste of cabbage. (If you don’t love cabbage, then I’d stick to lettuce.) However, I didn’t notice any cabbage smell or strong flavor when boiling this one leaf.

Burger for one, please!

Sometimes I’m home alone and don’t want to make an entire meal for just me. I actually bought one large burger patty from the butcher department at my grocer. I had never done that before, but it was just a couple dollars and I also bought one slice of super thick bacon at the butcher, because why not!?

I also picked up a head of cabbage, an avocado, and tomato. In my burger, I used Havarti cheese, which is one of my favorites melted on a burger.

There are so many topping choices for burgers, so when creating your burger, include the keto toppings you enjoy!

Cook your burger however you’d like.

I fried mine and the bacon on my stovetop griddle. While I was doing that, I filled a shallow pan with water to soften the cabbage for the wrap. Since I was only boiling one piece of cabbage, a shallow pan will do, but if you’re making more than one wrap, use a larger pot. You’ll only need to boil the cabbage wrap for 30 seconds to soften it up.

I wrapped my burger by placing the burger at the end of the stem. Then I wrapped it up by folding in the sides first, then the top of leaf over the top of the burger. That way it was easy to grab and eat.
