Lettuce Eat!

Keto-friendly Burger buns might seem like a contradiction, but your friend at Schweid & Sons are here to say you can have your burger and eat it too!

Create a delicious, low carb lettuce Burger using a wedge of the iceberg for a satisfying crunch or a roll of spinach for a soft taco style texture. Keep it healthy with crispy greens, carrots, peppers, and pickles. Avoiding cheese along with carbs? Try a spread of tahini sauce or hummus for a non-dairy alternative.
