Friday Food: Lettuce Wrapped Cheeseburgers

Here is a great alternative to the classic burger if you are trying to stay low-carb or follow a Paleo or ketogenic lifestyle.  Still very easy to make and enjoy and perfect for the weekend.

-2 lbs ground beef
-1/4 tsp salt
-1 tsp pepper
-1/2 tbsp oregano
-2 tbsp reduced sugar ketchup
-2 tomatos sliced thin
-1 head of iceberg lettuce, leaves removed
-6 slices American cheese
-1/4 cup mayo
-3 tbsp dil pickle relish
-Dash of salt and pepper

The Game Plan: 

  1. Heat your grill or skillet on medium heat and add a little Kerry Gold Butter
  2. In a large bowl, mix together the beef, salt, pepper, oregano and ketchup
  3. 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.
  4. Place each burger on your grill/pan and cook for approximately 304 minutes on each side.  Try not to press down on the burgers...they end up a little dry that way.
  5. Once you flip the burger, add your cheese to the top cooked side.
  6. In a small bowl mix together the spread ingredients and refrigerate.
  7. Once you have cooked all your burgers and removed them from the pan, assemble them.
  8. 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.
