Ingredients

  • 2 lbs. regular ground beef
  • 1 lb. ground sweet Italian pork sausage no casings
  • 3 T. Worcestershire sauce
  • ¼ c. white onion very finely minced
  • 4 cloves garlic very finely minced
  • 3 T. fresh rosemary stems removed and leaves finely minced
  • Sea salt and black pepper to taste
  • Blue cheese crumbled
  • 8 keto hamburger buns lightly toasted*
  • 2 T. unsalted butter melted
  • *To toast buns brush the inside surface of each bun with the melted butter and place over indirect heat while the burgers are cooking.
  • Toppings:
  • Leaf lettuce
  • Tomato sliced
  • Avocado sliced

Instructions

  • Clean grill grates and spray with non-stick cooking spray. Pre-heat grill to high.
  • Add ground beef, sausage, Worcestershire sauce, onion, garlic, and rosemary to a large glass bowl. Season with salt and black pepper, to taste, and combine thoroughly. Make sure both types of meat and all seasonings are completely incorporated throughout the mixture.
  • Divide meat mixture into 8 equal parts and shape each part into ¾-inch thick patties. Place patties on a lined tray and use your thumb to create an indent in the middle to keep them from puffing up while cooking.
  • Place patties over direct, high heat on your grill and cook for 8-10 minutes.
  • Tip: Actual cooking time will depend on desired level of doneness, so check after 4-5 minutes and adjust final cook time accordingly. (According to the USDA, the safe internal temperature for ground beef and pork is 160°F. Use an instant read thermometer to confirm).
  • Flip and move burgers to indirect heat 2-3 minutes before they are done. Top with blue cheese and close lid to allow cheese to melt completely.
  • Transfer burgers to a platter and serve immediately on toasted keto hamburger buns and topped with lettuce, tomato, and avocado slices. Enjoy!
