Lettuce Burger Wraps

by Erin, The $5 Dinner Mom on April 27, 2010

So we made our burgers this past Sunday night. And there were only enough buns for Steve and Grandma.  I could have used regular bread instead, but I went for the lower calorie option. (Shedding postpartum baby weight is taking a little longer this go around!)

I just took some of the large leaves from a Romaine lettuce head and wrapped the patty up with some red onion and condiments.


How do you like your burgers?!?  Got any fun variations to share.

We make something very similar to this!! We call it Hamburger Salad. Very yummy :)

This a great idea for cutting calories but still enjoying a burger! I’m looking for ways to shed postpartum baby weight after my first is born in May. This is going on my list!

My husband and I eat our burgers like that whenever we want to go more low-carb. They are surprisingly very good this way, too!

I have been eating them with lettuce like this since going gluten free and it is not bad. Plus, like you said it is lower calorie and carb this way.

This is the way my family generally eats it. Though we may vary the types of lettuce.

Might be fun to do a chicken burger and throw in some Asian flavors.

I have to say… I’m a sucker for Applebee’s Quesadilla Burgers. I should try throwing mine on a tortilla next time!

I enjoy freshly sliced avacado on my burger!

Turkey burgers with Teriyaki glaze and grilled pineapple!

I love to do mine with ground turkey breast, freshly grated garlic, balsamic vinegar, and a little olive oil and black pepper. Then I top with reduced-fat pepper jack cheese and salsa. YUM!
