This low carb bread is soft like a burger bun and toasts well too! Made in the microwave it has a few simple ingredients and takes minutes to prepare and cook. With it’s dome shaped top, it’s perfect to slice and use wrapped around your burger.
KETO BURGER BUN
I usually make a grilled cheese sandwich with low carb microwave bread and use a bread slice shaped container. To make this burger bun shape I used a large teacup. The shape was perfect and when sprinkled with a few sesame seeds it looks just like a bun.
HOW TO MAKE YOUR KETO BURGER BUN
I melt the butter first, then add to the remaining ingredients which are mixed in a separate bowl to the cups I use to make the burger shape. Purely to give me a bit more space to beat the mixture evenly. You could do it all in the same cup to save on the washing up if you wanted!
Water is included in the ingredients as I find that even just a teaspoon makes the burger bun lighter. Quality of ingredients can vary and my medium sized egg may be smaller than the one you use. So, add a bit of water if the mixture is too thick.
For the cup, make sure it is microwaveable and has no metal pattern on it. If you don’t have a large teacup, a small dessert bowl will still give you the burger bun shape.
Cooking times MAY vary slighter between different microwaves. I have no idea what strength mine is, all I know is that it cooks quick! We don’t have the latest, all singing, talks back to you and makes you a cup of coffee microwave, so if your keto burger bun is too dry after 2 minutes, I would recommend your next one cooks for 90 seconds.
CAN THIS BE MADE WITH COCONUT FLOUR?
Yes, it can but you would need to only use one tablespoon of coconut flour. Additionally, water may be needed as coconut flour loves to soak up the liquid like an Uncle at a wedding!
TIPS TO FLAVOUR YOUR BREAD
I found that rolling the top of the burger bun in sesame seeds got a better coverage. Add some chia or poppy seeds for a contrast of colour.
You could add some grated cheese, onion powder or herbs for extra flavour.
