cowboy burgers

 

Ok, sometimes I daydream that Mr. Bejelly is a cowboy and after a long day of riding the ranch wrangling cattle, he comes to a hot meal I spent all day whipping up for him.

Then reality hits and I realize I’m not really into animal husbandry.  I don’t want to live on a ranch and I am the queen of easy, 30 minute recipes.   So instead of buying 100 acres in Texas, I decided to make a keto cowboy burger that is spicy and meaty.

This burger is zero carb and guaranteed to brings the cowboy home every night.

    These look like the ultimate burger, and I definitely agree with the no desire to be a rancher, especially since I live in the middle of ranching country – it’s crazy hard work!

    Wow, these burgers are packed with pretty much everything good! I am sure I would LOVE them, especially with some avocado on top!

    Hey, don’t knock the 100 acres in Texas. 😉 As a native Texan who grew up on a ranch, I can say with authority that these sound delicious!
