Can I Make an [Keto/Low-Carb] "Ultimate Cheeseburger" (Bacon-Wrapped Juicy Lucy)?

Updated: Aug 28, 2020

I saw this Chef Club YouTube video & a couple of the recipes looked tasty and fun. I tried out this bacon-wrapped cheese-stuffed cheeseburger, which is essentially a bacon-wrapped Juicy Lucy.

A Juicy Lucy is a cheeseburger with the cheese on the inside! They were invented in Minneapolis.

I tried to make a Juicy Lucy before using shredded cheese and failed. Haha! :) I think the size & shape of the cheese you use for a Juicy Lucy matters so that the cheese melts correctly. In this recipe, they use a Babybel little wheel of cheese & that's what I got.


Attempt #1:


- Ground meat (this is chicken)

- 1 Babybel

- Bacon (4 pieces)

- Salt & pepper

In the video, they used ground beef. I felt like having ground chicken.

This is about 6-8 oz. of meat. I took half and made a patty. Then I put a little Babybel in the middle and covered it with another patty. Then I wrapped it with bacon. I forgot how they did it in the video when i was making it. I did 2 pieces one way and 2 pieces criss cross the other day.

I had a pan on the stove on medium-medium-high. I seared one side for about 5 minutes to get the bacon crispy. Then I flipped it.

RESULT: Success!

We are good at this! Yummy, ooey gooey cheesiness! I did it! I made a Juicy Lucy and this one was bacon-wrapped too. :)

When I took it off the stove, it wasn't as ooey gooey as I wanted. The meat was cooked through, but not completely melty. I just popped it in the microwave for 30 sec. That's a trick you can do too.

If you feel like making a bacon cheeseburger, this is fun easy variation. There's another one from this video I tried too. Stay tuned for that post.

Also, this is just ground meat, cheese, and bacon & salt & pepper, so it's keto/low-carb.

Give it a try! We are good at this!
