Is it still a burger without the bun?
|Do you ever just get that craving for a large, meaty, and satisfying burger? Sometimes after a particularly vigorous workout we just get this craving for a juicy burger that will satiate us. Unfortunately, not every night can be The Carb Nite Solution® so it’s important that our bunless burgers be so tasty that we forget all about the missing bun! That’s why we developed this Brat Burger with Brussels Slaw that is not only tasty and satisfying as hell, but also ultra low carb! The main ingredients include Brussels sprouts, bratwurst sausages, garlic and cheese (optional), which coupled together give you the most delicious burger recipe you could imagine!|
Protein packed with flavor…and other good stuff!
You’ll find this recipe not only good for maintaining your lean muscle mass or even encouraging fat loss, but also packed with a ton of beneficial side effects! We are BIG fans of Brussels sprouts. We know not everyone is but being prepared as a slaw and with all the nutritional value listed below, you may change your mind about them and give Brussels sprouts another try.
One final parting tip
If you’re going with the optional tomato and cheese, you may (or may not) drizzle some olive oil and salt and pepper onto the tomato slices before roasting them under the broiler. The roasted tomato along with the Swiss or Gruyere cheese will add a whole new depth of flavor to this ultra low carb burger recipe! We hope you enjoy this recipe – we know we definitely did, and hope it satisfies your craving for a good chunky burger too!

When Foodies Play…
Since I made several patties for future meals, I had a little fun playing with toppings. These burgers are definitely photogenic =) This is the Brat Burger patty topped with the roasted tomato and Swiss/Gruyere blend. Just added a few pieces of bacon of course, a fried egg.
What goes really well with Bratwurst? Sauerkraut! Here I used Trader Joe’s sauerkrut and I combined yellow mustard with some Sriracha sauce. Mmmmmmmm!
