Low Carb Jalapeno Cheddar Burgers: Spicy, cheesy, juicy burgers that are gluten free and low carb!

Low Carb Jalapeno Cheddar Burgers are a treat! If you like a little spice to your meal, these burgers are just what you want! Jalapenos and cheddar just go together and added to a burger is the perfect combination.

Top with mayo and tomato and wrap in a big leaf of lettuce and you have a meal fit for a king—or a queen!

Can I make the burgers ahead?

Yes! They can be made up to a day ahead of time. Just keep them covered and in the refrigerator until you are ready to cook them.

How do I store leftovers?

Store in an airtight container in refrigerator for several days or freeze.

The jalapenos;

Chop them pretty small and tuck them into the meat as you make the patties so they don’t fall out as they cook. If the pieces are nice and small, it is easier for them to blend together with the other ingredients and for the patties to stay together.

You could add more than the recipe calls for if you like them real spicy but keep in mind that too many will make the burgers easier to fall apart. It would be better to just add sliced jalapenos to the burger as you eat it if you want more. That is recommended, actually! Yum!

The Parmesan cheese:

I use the Parmesan in the green canister. I know some feel it is not the best choice for Keto with “cellulose powder to prevent caking” but it does a great job of holding the burgers together. Freshly grated Parmesan would probably not do the job as well.

And, “Cellulose is a non-digestible plant fiber, and we actually happen to need non-digestible vegetable fiber in our food—that’s why people eat bran flakes and psyllium husks,” says Jeff Potter, author of Cooking for Geeks- taken from bonappetit.com.

I personally think a little bit here and there is OK. One half cup of the cheese (with a tiny bit of the cellulose in that) spread throughout 6 burgers is fine for me.

Tips for juicy burgers:

Don’t over handle the meat. Combine the ingredients well but don’t overdo it.

Flip only once while cooking. Whether on the grill or in a skillet, one flip is all you want. It is that over handling thing again.

Don’t press the juices out of the burgers with the flipper while they are cooking. Releasing juice from the burgers obviously will make them less juicy.
