You can make a low carb, protein-packed version of Burger King’s Whopper which tastes just as good as the original!
This came about when I recently had a whopper while out shopping with my girl (weekend carb-up). It tasted so good I was determined to make a low-carb version that I could hold in my hand and eat, but how without a bun?
Well, I succeeded and over the past week or so I’ve been having 2 of these babies for my main meal, which is eaten pre-workout.
This burger is high in flavor, crunch & moisture.
BK Whopper Ingredients:
- Beef mince for patty
- Real Cheese Slice (Optional)
- Dill Pickle / Gherkin (Optional)
- Ketchup (get the lowest carb one you can find)
- Lettuce – use iceberg for the crunch
Both cheese and gherkins are optional depending on where in the world you are. I use cheese but didn’t have any when I was making this today.
Take your mince/ground beef and roll it out into a big patty. I really do mean big here, you need a wide base to fit all the ingredients on.
Now brown the patty. Optionally, you can salt it while it is cooking.
While you are waiting, get a big lettuce leaf and set of a plate, this is your bottom ‘bun’ and will allow you to hold the burger in your hand. Now rip up some more lettuce and lay it on top of the leaf.
Make 2 slices of tomato and slice your cheese (if you didn’t by it pre-sliced). Now cut your onion, ring-style, not diced. Big rings work best and I recommend you keep them raw for the crunch.
Once the patty is done set on the bed of lettuce and place your cheese on top first. Now add your tomato, onion rings, pickle, ketchup and mayo.
In order to hold this bad-boy in your hand, place another large lettuce leaf on top and enjoy!
I promise you this will be one of the most delicious burgers you taste! It comes in at a measly 2.5 grams of carbs per burger (from the tomato, onion and ketchup).
By the way, if you’re in the UK or Ireland pick up ‘Herbert Felix‘ brand of ketchup from Tesco – 1 gram of carbs per 10 gram serving.
Don’t miss out on this one. Get your ass into the kitchen now!
