Recipe type: Keto
Cuisine: American
Serves: 7
  • 1 large zucchini, chopped into ½-inch (1 cm) thick slices (around 14-16 slices)
  • ½ lb (225 g) ground beef
  • ¼ avocado, cut into small slices
  • 2 Tablespoons (30 ml) olive oil or avocado oil for greasing baking tray
  • 1 teaspoon (5 g) salt
  • 1 Tablespoon (15 ml) coconut mayo (optional)
  • 1 Tablespoon (15 ml) mustard (optional)
  1. Preheat oven to 400 F (200 C).
  2. Grease a baking tray with olive or avocado oil and sprinkle 1 teaspoon of salt across it.
  3. Place the zucchini slices on the baking tray.
  4. Form small balls from the ground beef and press into patties – around 7 or 8 patties – and place on the baking tray.
  5. Place baking tray into oven and bake for 15 minutes. Alternatively, instead of baking them, you can grill the zucchini and beef patties or pan-fry them in some olive or avocado oil.
  6. Put the mini burgers together by placing the burger patty in between 2 zucchini slices and adding the avocado slice, mayo, and mustard to the patty.
