If you're looking for a way to cut calories or remove grains from your diet, this bacon burger bun is a great protein-rich alternative for you. Editor Clint Cantwell from Grilling.com gives foodies an easy to follow tutorial on how to create a carb-free summertime burger.

Making this bacon burger is actually surprisingly simple with minimal kitchen prep. You can either make your own burgers at home or buy store bought ones. Wrap approximately three pounds of bacon shaped into a disk-like shape to recreate the shape of a bread bun. Cantwell recommends cooking the burger buns over medium heat till the bacon is perfectly crisp. Then you can let the bacon bun dry on a paper towel to soak up extra grease before placing your cooked beef patty inside.
