Honest Reviews of Low Carb Bun Options

Honest Reviews of Low Carb Bun Options

Lettuce Burger

Lettuce Wraps

This is the classic low carb approach. Here’s the secret: it’s all about the lettuce. You want a strong leaf that can hold in all the goodness from your juicy Belcampo beef burger. Upside: You can stack this with avocado, sprouts, all the goodies as long as the leaf is big enough. Downside: Nothing bun-like about a lettuce-wrapped burger.

Portabella Mushroom Burger

Grilled Portabella Mushrooms

Portabella mushrooms as buns look the part but are a little moister and harder to grip than the real deal. Upside: They add an awesome mushroomy flavor. Downside: these “buns” are hard to stack high with other goodies – sliced onions, tomatoes, etc.

Resemblance to a Real Bread Bun: Medium
Deliciousness: High

Keto Bread Burger

Keto “Bread”

Keto breads made from almond flour and psyllium husks are as good as it gets on the “bread-like” spectrum. Upside: Feels like bread, soaks up sauce and is toothsome. Downside: Can get a little mushy or crumbly with juice from the burger.
