I grew up eating my grandma’s famous mini hamburgers, an absolute favorite in my family. This keto-friendly version has fewer onions and added cheese.
Gluten free, corn free, soy free
- 1 pound 90% lean ground beef
- 1 egg
- 1 tablespoon paprika
- 2 teaspoons salt
- 1 teaspoon ground pepper
- ½ white onion, diced
- ¼ cup ground pecans
- 4 ounces cheddar cheese, divided into ½-ounce portions
Place ground beef in large bowl, and add the egg, paprika, salt, pepper and diced onion. Mix together.
Add the pecans and mix again.
Separate the meat into 8 even portions, about 2 ounces each. Form patties with each portion of meat, adding ½ ounce of cheese inside each one.
Heat a pan to medium-high heat and spray well. Place the mini burgers in the pan and cook each side for 4 minutes, until they are golden brown.
