What is a Low Carb Breakfast Burger? 

This delightful breakfast/brunch recipe is my new take on bacon and eggs. With a minced bacon bun (you can make minced bacon by simply pulsing lean bacon in a food processor). Packed full of parsley, the bacon burger is a lean mean protein machine, full of flavour and all the salty goodness of bacon. This is sandwiched between two eggs, which fall somewhere in between poached and fried, topped with a healthy portion of cheddar for extra texture and flavour.

For extra goodness, this low carb breakfast burger goes perfectly with a side of healthy pan fried tomatoes. What’s more, to save on washing up you only actually need one pan to cook this whole recipe, winner winner if you ask me!

 Breakfast – the most important meal of the day! 

Growing up you’re always taught that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. You sit down religeously every morning with your family, wolf it down before school and off you trot, to learn, do and live in the knowledge that your body is nourished and sustained right through until lunch. For some reason, for many of us, when we’re suddenly left to fend for ourselves as adults, breakfast can fall by the wayside! We rush out of the door to work, coffee in hand, forgetting totally to eat breakfast…lunch isn’t too far away right?!

That used to be me, until I started Slimming World  and discovered how important breakfast was in my day. When you eat breakfast you give your brain what it needs to function properly and fire on all cylinders. This means you’ll perform better at work, uni, school, or just doing the every day tasks that fill your day. Without breakfast you can end up sluggish, your concentration can be effected and if you’re anything like me you can get seriously ‘hangry’! Big, filling meals like this low carb breakfast burger are the perfect way to start your day.

Save RecipeSave Recipe


  • 4x Rashers Bacon (fat removed)
  • Handful Roughly Chopped Parsley (plus extra for garnish)
  • 2x Eggs
  • 15g Grated Cheddar Cheese
  • Salt & Pepper (to taste)
  • 1x Tomato (sliced)
  • Low Calorie Cooking Spray
  • 1/2 Pint Water
  • You Will Also Need:
  • Food Processor for mincing the bacon
  • 2x Mason Jar to use the lids


  1. Mince the bacon in a food processor .
  2. Mix the minced bacon with parsley and season with salt and pepper.
  3. Use the lid of a mason jar to shape the mince into a burger patty. This ensures that the burger is the same size as your cooked eggs will be.
  4. Spray a deep frying pan with Fry Light over a medium heat and add your burger patty, add the tomato slices to cook alongside it. Spray with cooking spray as necessary.
  5. When the tomatoes are cooked, remove them and set them aside, and once the burger is cooked through remove it and set aside.
  6. Clean the frying pan and place back over the heat. Place the lids of your two mason jars in the frying pan, so you have two rings to cook your eggs in.
  7. Spray the frying pan with cooking spray and crack in the two eggs.
  8. Use a fork to break the yolks so that you have a flat surface.
  9. Pour the water into the frying pan around the egg rings and cover to poach the eggs.
  10. When they are almost done, top one of the eggs with the cheese. Remove the eggs from the frying pan when they are cooked through and the cheese has melted.
  11. Layer the burger on top of the egg without the cheese. Top with the cheesy one.
  12. Season and garnish with extra parsley and your tomatoes.
  13. Enjoy straight away!

    This is a great idea! I really learned to love protein heavy breakfasts a couple of years ago and can't go back to sweet, basic cereals for breakfast without feeling starving for the rest of the day now! This sounds amazing!

      Thanks Amy! I'm such a big believer in big breakfasts, I don't think I could go back either!

    Breakfast is my favorite meal of the day, but it's so easy to get bogged down with carbs! This is a great idea!

    This is such a genius idea Cliona! Not something you see every day yet makes perfect sense! We probably tend to eat too much grain and not enough protein, which is so important for breakfast, and this recipe really solves this problem!

      Thanks Monica! I'm a big carb fan but you're right, we do eat too much grain. I sometimes love to just cut it out and enjoy a protein fix!

    I am a breakfast skipper too - you're right, it's so easy to think 'lunch is so near, a couple of hours, I can make it!'. But this year I've made a conscious effort to have more breakfasts and turn it into a daily thing! Love this low carb burger!

    I love this recipe, Cliona, especially those fab eggs - never seen eggs done like that before - bet they taste fab. And, of course, I LOVE that you only use one pan!! Thanks for linking up with with #CookBlogShare :-) Eb x
