Lettuce Wrapped Cheeseburgers

Serves: 6

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!

Prep Time:
Cook Time:
Total Time:


2 pounds ground beef
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon pepper
1/2 tablespoon oregano
2 tablespoons reduced sugar ketchup
2 tomatoes, sliced thin
1 head of iceberg lettuce, leaves removed
6 slices American cheese
1/4 cup mayo
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.
