Cheddar and bacon burger stack

Can you still satisfy burger cravings on a Low Carb High Fat diet? Yes! Stack it high with all your favourites.

Serves 1

Ingredients:

  • 6oz beef burger
  • 3 slices streaky bacon
  • 2 iceberg lettuce leaves
  • 1 thick slice cheddar cheese
  • 1 slice tomato
  • 1 slice red onion
  • 3 gherkins, sliced
  • 1 handful soft lettuce, (approx. 50g)
  • 2 slices mushroom
  • 1 tablespoon mayonnaise
    • 25g butter

Method:

  1. Preheat the grill.
  2. Lay a few layers of iceberg lettuce on the plate and stack up the slices of tomato, onion, gherkin and soft lettuce. Spread the mayonnaise between the layers to help hold together.
  3. Fry the bacon and mushrooms in a small frying pan and keep warm.
  4. Pan fry the burger to your liking.
  5. While still in the pan cover the burger with a thick slice of cheddar cheese and place under the grill until half melted.
  6. Slide onto the lettuce and top with bacon.
  7. Wrap over the lettuce and serve.

Tip: Slowly fry the onions in butter for a real take-away taste! It’s possible (if messy) to wrap the burger in the lettuce and eat it in your hand like a regular burger, but much easier to use a knife and fork!
