In case you hadn’t heard, I’ve been dabbling with the Ketogenic (Keto) Diet lately.  I’ve cycled on and off of it for the past few months, and I’ve got to say…I really like it.

Step 5: When the pan is up to temperature, and you start smelling that garlic-y goodness, add your cheese filled patties to the pan.

Step 6: Cook the patties for 3-5 minutes on one side and then flip.

Step 7: After 3 minutes on the second side – cover the pan with a lid (this build up heat in the middle of the burgers – allowing the cheesy center to start to melt without over cooking the outside of the patties)

Step 8: Allow to cook covered for 5-8 minutes (time depending on how well done you prefer your burgers)

Step 9: Remove the cover and transfer the patties to a plate.

Step 10: To the remaining oil and garlic in the pan, add your Coconut Milk.

Step 12: Drizzle the garlic sauce over the top of your plated patties.

Step 13: Serve and enjoy!
