Keto Burger! Bison, Lamb, Bacon – Oh My!

1 hour
Calories 200kcal


  • 3 ounces ground bison (85% lean, by Simple Truth)
  • 3 ounces ground lamb (85% lean, by Simple Truth)
  • 2 slices bacon (85% lean, by Simple Truth)
  • 1/4 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese
  • 2 portobello caps
  • 1/2 tablespoon fresh thyme
  • 1/2 teaspoon cayenne
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 pinch sea salt (85% lean, by Simple Truth)
  • sliced tomatoes
  • fresh spinach (85% lean, by Simple Truth)


  • Fire up the grill to about 300F (or set oven to 400F).
  • Set a skillet on medium high heat and add bacon.
  • Cook it until it gets nice & crispy, about 10 minutes.
  • In a large bowl, using a potato masher (or your hands) mix together the ground bison & lamb.
  • Toss in the seasonings and mix together, then form a hamburger patty.
  • Place the patty on the grill and cook for about 20 minutes, flipping halfway through.
  • Once you flip it once, add the cheddar cheese on top and allow it to melt as it finishes cooking.
  • Note: make sure the meat is completely cooked and is no longer pink inside.
  • I do not recommend eating rare wild game.
  • Cut off the stems from the large portobello mushroom caps.
  • Using a spoon, scrape out the insides of the caps.
  • Lightly spray the caps on the inside and outside with olive oil, then sprinkle with a little sea salt.
  • Place the caps on the grill (face-down) for about 15 minutes or in the oven (on a baking sheet) for about 10 to 15 minutes.
  • Tip: allow the mushrooms to lightly cool on a paper towel for about 5 to 10 minutes before assembling the burger.
  • They tend to have a lot of water and this will pretty you from biting into a soggy mess.
  • Once the burger has finished cooking, assemble the burger with spinach/lettuce, tomato and bacon.
  • Enjoy! Approximate macros for 1 burger (and…DON’T FREAK OUT ABOUT THE FAT CONTENT):
