  • Yield: 4 1x


Do not knock Lettuce Wrap Burgers until you try them! Once you do you will never miss a hamburger bun again. This low carb option doesn't skimp on flavor and is dripping with juicy goodness!




  • 1 Pound Ground Beef
  • Salt & Pepper
  • 1 Head of Iceberg Lettuce


  • Cheese
  • Tomatoes
  • Pickles
  • Crispy Onion Straws or Onions
  • Honey Mustard, Mustard, Ketchup, Mayo
  • Any Topping of Your Liking!



  1. Heat up the grill to 450 degrees.
  2. Divide the 1 pound of beef into 4 equal size patties. Pat them down as flat as you can as they tend to round when you grill them.
  3. Sprinkle each side liberally with salt and pepper.
  4. Lay each patty on the grill and close the lid. Cook for 2-3 minutes on that side then flip, closing the lid again and cooking for another 2-3 minutes.
  5. Remove from the grill and them the patties rest on a plate for 3-5 minutes before serving.

To Assemble

  • Cut the bottom stem off of the iceberg lettuce head. Gently remove each leaf trying not to tear them in half as you do.
  • Lay a single lettuce leaf down. Place burger inside and add any and all toppings desired.
  • Fold the remaining tops of lettuce over the topped burger to enclose the toppings and form a wrap. Pick up and enjoy!


  • I used 85/15 ground beef but any blend will work!
  • Serve with a side of Sweet Potato Fries!
  • Nutrition facts only include beef patty and lettuce - no toppings or condiments
