Bacon Double Cheeseburgers a/k/a Grain-Free Baconators

This evening I decided to grill a couple of different meals at the same time since we already had the grill heated up. It's supposed to rain most of this week and it looked as though it could rain this evening so we went ahead and grilled both tonight's and tomorrow's dinner to make things easier. I was in the mood for burgers tonight so as soon as I got home, I whipped up a batch of my Sesame Seed Sandwich Buns. They only take 30 minutes to make from beginning to end (including the 22 minutes to bake them). They are the closest thing to regular bread I've had in almost 3 years of grain-free eating and I use them for burgers, grilled chicken sandwiches, deli sandwiches, chicken salad sandwiches and even breakfast sandwiches. They are so versatile and easy to make.

I made plain hamburgers using ground round lightly seasoned with McCormicks Montreal Steak Seasoning and grilled them for about 4 to 5 minutes per side. I decided to make bacon cheeseburgers so while my sesame seed buns were baking, I cooked some bacon until crisp. I topped the grilled burgers with sliced sharp white cheddar cheese and a few strips of crispy bacon. I kept it simple and served the burgers with a few grape tomatoes and half of an avocado. They turned out delicious! If you have been craving a burger on a bun or just a simple sandwich for lunch...these are the perfect sandwich rolls to use and each roll contains 4.5 to 5 net carbs and they bring back the convenience of portability (as in pack a quick sandwich for lunch). I snapped a few photos below. The recipe for my sandwich rolls can be found here: Sesame Seed Sandwich Buns. Enjoy!
