Naked Cheeseburger

All the well-loved burger flavours without the carbs - yum!

Extra hungry? Make it a double patty, double cheese.

Tip: For some added flavour season the burger mince with a tablespoon of paprika, oregano or onion powder - or anything else of your choosing.


  • 250g raw mince beef
  • 1 large egg
  • ½ tsp salt
  • ½ tbsp butter
  • 2 sliced cheddar cheese
  • 2 pickled gherkin, sliced
  • ½ tbsp low sugar tomato sauce
  • ½ tbsp low sugar American mustard
  • 2 lettuce leaves
  • ¼ red onion, sliced


  1. In a mixing bowl, combine the beef mince with the egg using your hands or a wooden spoon until well blended.
  2. Make two burger patties and cook in butter in a frypan, for approximately 3 minutes per side on medium-high heat, until golden brown all over and the juices run out clear. They can also be grilled on a BBQ.
  3. Add a slice of cheese to each burger towards the end of cooking, giving it enough time to melt over the patty.
  4. Serve with the salad sides or use large cups of lettuce as a burger bun to hold the burger and toppings.
