If you want to take your burger recipe to the next level, try wrapping it in bacon. The bacon not only gives this burger a delicious flavor, but it keeps the burger moist so it doesn’t dry out. It’s also a very versatile burger recipe that’s Whole30, keto and Paleo-approved. If you’re not a huge fan of herbs, feel free to swap the herbs for delicious spices like cumin, chili, paprika, and turmeric.
Bacon-Wrapped Herb Burgers
- 1.5 pounds of organic, grass-fed ground beef or lamb
- 1 tsp salt
- 1 spring onion, chopped
- 1 small zucchini, grated (roughly 3/4 cup)
- 1/4 cup fresh sage, chopped
- 2 Tbsp fresh thyme leaves
- 3 garlic cloves, crushed*
- 12 long pastured bacon slices (chemical- and preservative-free)
- Preheat your oven to 350F.
- Add the beef, salt, onion, grated zucchini, sage, thyme leaves and garlic to a bowl and mix everything together until evenly combined.
- Divide the mixture into 6 even portions and use your hands to mold them into 6 burger patties.
- Now get 2 bacon slices and lay them flat on top of each other to create a cross. Place one of the burger patties in the middle of the bacon cross and wrap the bacon around the burger patty as best you can.
- Repeat this step for the remaining burger patties.
- Heat a frying pan over medium heat. Cook the bacon burgers on all sides evenly until the bacon is cooked through.
- When the burgers are ready, place them onto a lined baking tray and then into the oven to ensure the middle of the burger is cooked through. This may take 15 minutes or so.
- When they’re ready, remove them from the oven.
- Serve with a side salad, your choice of roasted veggies or steamed veggies, avocado or a poached egg.

Note on suspect ingredients: Garlic is in the suspect category of the Bulletproof Diet, because it inhibits alpha brain waves and could affect your mood – and depending on where you get it, could be moldy. For that reason, it’s not recommended that you eat garlic often.
