Lettuce Wrapped Cheeseburgers
To cut carbs, I started eating burgers wrapped in lettuce. Now, years later, that is my preferred way to eat them. Give it a try!
|2 pounds||ground beef|
|2 tablespoons||reduced sugar ketchup|
|2||tomatoes, sliced thin|
|1 head||of iceberg lettuce, leaves removed|
|6 slices||American cheese|
|3 tablespoons||reduced sugar ketchup|
|1 tablespoon||dill pickle relish|
|dash of salt and pepper|
Heat your grill or skillet on medium heat and add a little butter.
In a large bowl, mix together the beef, salt, pepper, oregano and ketchup.
Divide the mixture into 6 sections, and roll each piece into a ball then press down flat for 6 burgers. You can also use a burger press if you have one.
Place each burger on your grill/pan and cook for approximately 3-4 minutes on each side. Try not to press down on the burgers…they end up a little dry that way.
Once you flip the burger, add your cheese to the top cooked side.
In a small bowl mix together the spread ingredients and refrigerate.
Once you have cooked all your burgers and removed them from the pan, assemble them.
Place 1 cheeseburger on the lettuce leaf, top with 2 slices of tomato, a spoonful of spread, then wrap top to bottom with another lettuce leaf.
