Recipe/Keto Onion Cheeseburger Bites

Keto Onion Cheeseburger Bombs

For a different twist on the foil packet meal, try these seasoned ground beef onion bombs for grilling or camping!

Servings Prep Time
8 15
Cook Time


  • 2pounds ground beef
  • 3/4cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 2 eggs
  • 2teaspoons garlic powder
  • 2teaspoons onion powder
  •  salt & pepper to taste
  • 2-3 large onions(You’ll only be using the largest outside pieces)


  1. Mix meat with eggs, cheese, and seasonings.

  2. Cut an onion in half, from the root down. Peel apart the largest outside pieces. Two pounds of meat made 8 bombs, so in my case, I used 16 pieces of onion to place together as “bombs”.

  3. Spray foil with nonstick oil spray and place onion bombs inside foil. I wrapped two inside of each packet.

  4. Heat grill to medium-high heat and grill for about 30 minutes. You’re going to have to check for done-ness, periodically, so they don’t overcook or burn. If camping, grill over hot coals in the campfire instead!

Interesting New Year Facts: 

1. New Year celebrations are not new. The concept actually dates back to 2000 BC. The Mesopotamians used to celebrate New Year!

2. 1st January as New Year was never a standard practice. Romans for instance celebrated March 1 as New Year. Some other cultures went for winter solstice or summer equinox.

3. The Roman Catholic Church was the one to adopt 1st January as New Year. Well, 1st January as New Year was marked by Georgian Calendar.

4. 1st January was accepted as New Year in 46 BC by Julius Caesar. England and the American colonies of England adopted the date long time later in 1752.

5. The month of January derives its name from a two-faced God named Janus. Janus’ one face looked forward while the other looked backward.

6. New Year is usually considered to be the best time for making resolutions. Resolutions usually mean people want to give up some bad habits and pick up some good habits but resolutions may not necessarily be about habits.

7. New Year gifts also date back to ancient times when the Persians used to gift eggs symbolizing productivity.

8. Whatever New Year traditions we speak of are actually meant for bringing good luck. For instance, eating black-eyed peas on the day of New Year is believed to bring good luck in several parts of the United States.

9. Speaking of traditions, we cannot miss out on the Estonian practice of eating 7, 9 or 12 meals on the eve of New Year. They believe that eating that many meals will give them the strength of that many people in the year that follows.

10. Finnish people have a weird tradition which goes by the name molybdomancy. This is all about telling fortunes. A small amount of led is melted in a small pan using a small stove. The melted metal is then thrown into a bowl full of cold water. The liquid metal solidifies and the resulting shape of the solid metal is then analyzed in candle light to tell the fortune of a person in the coming year.

Here are five interesting stats about New Year’s Eve for the traveler in all of us:

1. The top three places in the U.S. to visit and celebrate New Year’s Eve are Las Vegas, Disney World, and New York City. Airbnb has more than one million reservations on New Year’s Eve, 2015, including approximately 47,000 reservations in New York City alone.

2. The biggest international celebration is in Sydney, Australia. This celebration includes more than 80,000 fireworks set off over Sydney Harbour Bridge, with more than 1 million people in attendance to watch the show!

3. More than 360 million glasses of sparkling wine are consumed during the holiday season, and it’s the biggest day for champagne consumption.

4. Only 50 percent of Americans make New Year’s resolutions, and 25 percent of those give up their resolutions by the second week in January. The top New Year’s resolutions include losing weight, eating healthier, exercising more, quitting smoking, sticking to a budget, saving money, getting more organized, finding a better job, and being a better person.

5.  Not all celebrations end happily. More vehicles are stolen on New Year’s Day than any other holiday according to the National Insurance Crime Bureau.

So for New Year’s Eve 2015, remember to not drive and drive, and to have plenty of fun. For more information, check out’s official website.
