Bun-less Burger with Fried Avocado
This delicious bun-less burger is perfect for anyone looking for a healthier, lower-carb alternative to the traditional burger.
- 4 oz (F) or 6 oz (M) lean ground beef (96% or above lean)
- 1/3 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
- 1/3 tbsp steak seasoning
- Salt and pepper to taste
- 1 lettuce leaf (to place as “bun”)
- ½ tomato, sliced for topping
- ½ cup onions, sliced for topping (to be caramelized)

- 1 ounce/slice swiss cheese (optional)
- ½ avocado
- 1/8 cup unsweetened almond milk
- ¼ cup almond flour
- Salt to taste

This bunless burger features a patty made from lean, seasoned ground beef that is cooked to perfection. The patty is topped with caramelized onions, fresh lettuce, and ripe tomato slices. A unique twist on traditional burgers, we added a fried avocado that gives an extra creaminess and crunch to the burger. This is a great option for those looking to cut back on their carb intake or for those looking for a unique twist on a classic dish.
Step by Step Instructions
Preheat grill. Break up the ground beef and evenly distribute the Worcestershire sauce and steak seasoning. Mix gently with your hands to distribute the seasoning and form into three balls. Gently press/pat into patties or use a burger press. Make a slight depression in the center of the burger to prevent it from puffing up in the middle.
Lightly oil the grate. Season the outside of the burger patties with a light sprinkling of salt and pepper to taste (both sides). Grill to your desired level of doneness. Add swiss cheese to melt on top.
For the caramelized onions, slice the onions, then heat 2 tsp of olive oil in a pan over medium-low heat. When hot, add the onions and sauté until softened. Cook until beginning to brown or caramelize.
Serve the burger on a lettuce cup/”bun” and top with tomato slices and caramelized onions.
Side of Fried Avocado
Preheat oven to 425 F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Start out by peeling and pitting avocado. Slice half into “fry-sized” pieces, about 4 pieces (for half avocado). Dip your avocado slices in the milk, then the almond flour, and finally season with salt and pepper. Bake for about 20 minutes, 10 minutes on each side.
