If these are not bariatric then I don’t know what is! We love these mini burgers, layered on a bamboo skewer with lettuce, tomatoes and pickles! These burger bites make the perfect low-carb, high protein bariatric meal! Just set out the ketchup and mustard for dipping and watch them disappear! Enjoy in confidence!
