Recipe from Simply Keto: A Practical Approach to Health and Weight Loss by Suzanne Ryan
- 1 lb ground beef
- 2 tsp garlic powder
- salt and pepper
- 4 slices of cheddar cheese
- 1 tbsp unsalted butter
- 1 medium avocado, sliced
- 1 small tomato, cut into 4 slices

- 4 butter lettuce leaves, for serving (optional)
1. Preheat a grill or grill pan to medium-high heat.

4. In a skillet over medium heat, melt the butter.
5. Place the burgers on a plate and top each burger with a slice of tomato, onion slices, and avocado slices. Season to taste with salt and butter. Eat as is or enjoy wrapped in a butter lettuce leaf.
