Happy Monday beautiful people! Today I’ll be showing you all how to make a low carb bacon cheeseburger by dismissing a few ingredients that you’d usually find in a burger, like an actual burger bun!  I made this at home a few days ago and absolutely loved it, the flavours are stunning and the dish allows you to be full without feeling overly bloated like you’d usually get from bread. I swear I didn’t miss the bun at all! My family and friends were so shocked when they tried, it’s SO good! It’s also a great option if you’re trying to reduce the amount of bad carbohydrates you take in. So sit back, relax and enjoy this bacon cheese burger! Get the recipe here:

    I have a question. I’ve never seen just Maggi cubes (in U.S. … California). I use liquid Maggi. Could that be substituted for the cube?
