If you’re like me (and I know you are) you see stuff all the time on your Facebook wall that looks delicious but is definitely NOT low carb! Like this All Day Breakfast Burger! Well guess what? You CAN “magically” transform it into something low carb! Here’s how:
So HERE’S the original as it was displayed on my Facebook feed:
AND here is how you can have something similar but keep it low carb:
- 1 serving of my cream cheese waffles (1/3 of the batter for this recipe & nutrition)
- 1 TBSP butter
- 6 TBSP Mrs. Butterworth's Sugar-Free syrup
- 1 splash of bourbon
- 3 bacon strips
- ⅓ pound 85/15 ground beef (may also substitute ground sausage)
- 2 slices cheddar cheese
- 1 egg
- Prepare per video with designated low-carb ingredients for a healthier low-carb take on this fun and fabulous breakfast burger that everyone (including the men in your life) will love!
Be sure to make the waffles first so they have time to stay warm yet firm up enough to act as your bun.
Of course you are not going to use tater tots for the “waffle” like depicted in the video! I have subbed in my cream-cheese waffles, cooked in a traditional waffle iron. I suggest using 1/3 the batter in my recipe so they aren’t really thick.
You’ll also note that I suggest using the bourbon butter sauce sparingly. All the carbs are in the syrup! While the Mrs. Butterworth’s is really good and it’s actually really low carb, it will add up when you times the amount by 6 tablespoons. Use just enough to give it the taste without the carbs if you can. 8 out of the 12 net carbs in the whole dish come from the sauce.
You could sub in the Walden Farms pancake syrup. It is zero carbs, just know it’s not as thick or rich as the Mrs. Butterworths so it’s a trade off. Cook it longer to cook it down and you might like it just as well? Other than that… ENJOY!
I love transforming foods that low-carb traditionalists think they cannot have into certified low-carb delicious meals! I love hearing from you!
