Low Carb Burger Skewers

These bunless burger skewers are the cutest and make the perfect appetizer for any BBQ. I promise you ou won't even miss the bun. Top these mini burgers with a mini slice of cheese (or plant- based), onion, tomato and lettuce, so easy. Another meal ready in just under 20 minutes!

Low Carb Burger Skewers


  • 1 lb grass fed beef
  • 1/2 cup chickpea breadcrumbs
  • 1 egg* (cage free, free range, organic is best)
  • 1 tsp minced garlic
  • 1 tbsp worcestershire sauce
  • 1 tbsp organic yellow mustard
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • salt and pepper
  • 5 slices organic cheddar cheese (cut in quarters (or plant based*) )
  • 4 leaves organic iceberg lettuce (cut into 1 inch pieces )
  • 1 small onion (cut into 1 inch pieces )
  • 1 pint organic cherry tomatoes

  1. In a large bowl combine ground beef, bread crumbs, egg, garlic, worcestershire, mustard and season with salt and pepper. Mix until combined and form into bite size meatballs
  2. In a large skillet, heat oil in medium heat and cook meatballs about 6 minutes per side.
  3. Add a piece of cheese to the top of each meatball and let melt for 1 minute
  4. To a skewer add the meatball, then piece of onion, lettuce and top with tomato slice. Serve displayed on a dish.
*For vegan or plant-based options, you can opt for plant based cheese or a flax egg. See post for instructions  

If you want to go for a plant based or vegan option, I like to use Good Planet Foods Cheese particularity because it is Non-GMO and there are no natural flavors in the ingredient list. YES!
