A carnivore burger is almost guaranteed to be a meal prep staple if you’re eating an ultra-low-carb animal-based diet. So jazz your burger up with this simple two-ingredient carnivore bun recipe and top it with any of the strict carnivore or keto carnivore fixings listed below.

With only 1 g net carb per bun, these chaffle bread buns are practically zero carb and very suitable for a keto diet. Furthermore, they are also naturally low-oxalate and fiber free.

How to Make Carnivore Diet Burger Buns

Gather two ingredients, and you’re halfway to making a no carb burger bun!

After making a 2 Ingredient Chaffle recipe, aka “carnivore waffles,” I was so inspired to see what else I could do with a clever combination of eggs and shredded cheese. 

Well, wouldn’t you know… carnivore-friendly burger buns are one more form we can enjoy.

I’m still working on a sliceable carnivore bread recipe, but this bun concept is working great now. It’s like chaffle bread!

In addition to burgers with ground beef or hamburger meat, you can use this as carnivore sandwich bread and fill it with your favorite animal-based sandwich fixings or make grilled cheese.

So far, this is an awesome Carnivore diet bread substitute. Once you get the buns prepped, you can stuff them with all your favorite carnivore burger fixings. Check out the list further down of filling and topping ideas.

Zero Carb Burger Bun Ingredients

Here’s what you need for the buns:

Cheese – I’m using mozzarella, but you can also use cheddar or Monterey Jack. Choose something that melts well.

Eggs – Just two. They mix with the cheese and form the shape of your delicious bun.

Step-By-Step Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F (175°). Grease a 6-cup muffin pan. You can also use a 12-cup pan if that’s what you have. In this case, only fill six of the wells instead of all of them.
  2. Combine cheese and eggs together in a large mixing bowl.
  3. Divide the batter and fill each muffin space evenly.
  4. Bake for 20 minutes, until tops are golden brown.
  5. Run a knife around the edges to loosen each muffin. Remove from the pan and cool on a wire rack.
  6. Serve immediately or store as part of your carnivore meal prep.

Sandwich as many ingredients as you like between two buns pieces and bite down with satisfaction.

I’ve kept them in the fridge for up to 5 days without any issue.

These freeze well for at least a few weeks, but I haven’t tested longer. To thaw, leave them in the fridge overnight or out on the counter from the afternoon until evening dinner time. They thaw pretty quickly since each piece is relatively small.

MEAL PREP TIP: Freeze with layers of parchment paper in-between, so you can easily remove one or two pieces at a time. This also helps prevent them from all freezing together in a big messy lump.

    • Thank you for sharing your perspective. Indeed, people often find it challenging to let go of omnivore acculturation when transitioning to a carnivore lifestyle. Embracing change can be difficult, and each person’s path is unique. Wishing you success on your own wellness journey!

    I feel like the bun is a little “eggy” so I added a pinch of garlic powder (garlic bread) or onion powder.

    I’m sure for breakfast sandwiches, you could add vanilla or maple flavoring which would be a nice change.
