These delicious keto appetizers comprise of seasoned mini-burgers stuffed with cheese, wrapped generously in bacon and skewered. The mini burgers definitely resemble a lollipop once cooked… well, a meat lolli anyway.

How to make the Bacon Cheeseburger Keto Pops
The process of making these little burgers on a stick is pretty straight forward. Here I will walk you through the recipe with pictures.
First, season the hamburger.
Then shape a small patty around each chunk of cheese.
Wrap a slice of bacon around the patty.
Then wrap another slice across the other way to fully encase the mini-burger with bacon.
Skewer each wrapped burger and place on wire rack over sheet pan to bake.
Bake until each is crisp on the outside. 30-35 minutes should be ample.
Allow to cool slightly before serving.
