Low Carb Burger


There are days when I crave for a burger, especially the RM4 Ramly Burger Special. I prefer eating Ramly Burger anytime than any of the fast food outlet here. Who doesn’t love a good burger? Even my 92 year old grandpa love it when he had his first burger last year!

I made myself a Low Carb Burger, bun-less and guilt-free.  To fill myself up, I prefer having another piece of burger patty (more protein) than carb like a bun. Why order take-aways when you can enjoy these loaded hamburgers at home?

Making burger patties are extremely easy. You can either have a basic minced pattie with just salt & pepper, or add some ingredients to the minced like what I did. Then cook the burger patties, top with cheese until it melts and any of your favourite topping, or on the side. I made more burger patties to freeze, weeknight dinners can be a breeze when I just want something quick.

  3. That burger looks great, like something from a fancy restraunt

    • thank you liam! Preparing something fancy at home just take a bit extra time & effort, but goes a long way. food taste better when it looks amazing.. no? 😛

  4. Your grandpa is 92? wow thats a respectable age. my late grandpa would have been 100 this year.

    Your cooking style is keeping us healthy, I wouldnt think twice to order such a burger or make it myself. Burgers are awesome, but sometimes a bit too unhealthy. Your burger will be the perfect solution for my problem!

    • Ya, my grandpa is still strong & healthy. but since my grandma pass away last year, his personality changed. that’s why I will try to visit him more often.
      I’ve seen some people wrap the burger patty with lettuce leaf, and it look more like a hamburger 😛

  5. Gotta agree I too love Ramly’s better than those in McD or KFC. Adore your loaded patties…yummmm! 😉

  6. Wow! These low card burger looks so delicious! My boys love to eat burger but don’t like to eat at macD. For them the portion in MacD is too small ! LOL I’ll certainly try this recipe & make bigger portion for them! I’m 100% sure they’ll love these yummy burgers! 🙂

    • Homemade burgers are always much better than fast food chains. Yes my portion is definitely not big enough for the boys, you will have to double that.. or make it double decker patties 🙂

  7. Strangely enough, I do like the Ramly burger occasionally, just don’t ask what’s in the patty. The only complaint is that they go crazy with the sauces and it’s sometimes so messy to eat! 🙂
    We do this lo-carb burger too sometimes, my family calls it a “naked burger”. Looks yum!

  8. oh yummsss. i have also resorted to making my own burger patties. and if necessary, these patties make good emergency ingredients for my pasta days too:D
