I guess you lovely people should have heard about the Coronavirus aka Wuhan Virus pandemic. Things had gotten worse in Singapore. I was down with an on and off fever for more than a couple of weeks. Do not worry as I am Coronavirus negative. I am still recovering tho, so, I apologize for this hiatus.
Anyway, here's another ketogenic-friendly recipe for you lovely people. I know that you miss munching down on some cheeseburgers while you are on a ketogenic diet. I'd heard you. Here is a platter of cheeseburger patties without the high-carb burger buns. You can of cos use any types of meat you like. I am just using ground chicken; but if you are using ground beef, add a dash of cream. The cream will somewhat marinade the beef. It will keep the beef juicy while cooking, retaining all the fat. I do not wanna go too Einstein explaining the science of it. I am sure you get my point.
I am using some good old red cheddar. You can try using different cheese or even, a combination of cheese. Whichever suits your preference, go for it. A recipe is just a guideline to follow; nobody should stick to a recipe, ingredient for ingredient or step for step. Remember, the plate is your canvas and you are the artist.
