Why You'll Love This Recipe

You will love this simple recipe for Avocado Lettuce Wrap Burgers because this is a healthy take on the classic burger! I love making a healthy burger in place of the traditional indulgent burger.

In this easy recipe, I use big pieces of Roanoke lettuce instead of a traditional bun so this burger is packed with protein!  I created this recipe with my friends at Organic Prairie using their Grassfed Organic Ground Beef! I use Organic Valley American Cheese and add tomato, red onion, and avocado for a flavorful healthy burger!

This will satisfy your burger craving when it hits and you don’t have to worry about having buns or making them. But if you prefer a bun, you can always add this to my White Hamburger Buns too!

Why go organic?

You may be wondering why I push organic ingredients for everything, even savory and healthy dishes. Organic ingredients go beyond just health and wellness, and contribute so much to the taste and flavor of a recipe. So, if you think that you're making something healthy and buying fruits, veggies, or meats so maybe you don't need to spend the extra to go organic here – let me sway your thinking.

Organic ingredients are made in a more pure way, therefore using no additives, no GMOs, and minimal ingredients. This really allows the true ingredients to shine – and because of that their flavor shines through. Therefore, organic ingredients are more flavorful than their non organic counterparts. So, just because it's already a healthy recipe, or you're already buying good for you ingredients – it doesn't mean you can skip organic! Trust me here, and make the switch. Your body and your taste buds will thank you!

So, I highly recommend that you buy the best organic ingredients for this recipe! You can also shop my Amazon Storefront for all my favorite organic ingredients here. Tip – hover over each ingredient to see the name. And if you want to learn more about organic foods and the difference, read my post here on Food Labels and What They Mean.

This recipe for Avocado Lettuce Wrap Burgers is a simple and healthy take on your classic cheeseburger! You will love this healthy burger!

Ingredients

Directions

  • Break each leaf of lettuce in half. Cut the tomatoes into 1/4-inch thick slices. Slice avocado into slices (you can use half the avocado or the whole avocado for extra).
  • Form burger patties into 1/4-pound burgers that are about 5-inches in diameter. Salt and pepper each side.
  • In a large skillet, turn heat to medium/high. Once the skillet is hot, place burger patties in the skillet. Cook for 2 to 4 minutes per side, flip and cook again on the second side. I like to cook my burgers to medium rare but cook to your liking. Remove from heat.
  • If adding cheese slices, do so now, and allow to melt (trick is to cover with a lid here).
  • To assemble: Add two pieces of lettuce for the bottom, place the burger on top, then add the avocado, tomato, red onion, and pickles.
  • Serve immediately.

Notes

  • High Altitude – Follow the recipe as noted.
