Cheeseburger Lettuce Wraps

Do not let their humble appearance fool you, these wraps are downright delicious and taste like a guilty pleasure without the guilt! I am a big fan of the Asian-flavored lettuce wraps at P.F. Chang’s and when I was brainstorming ways to use the leftover burger-seasoned ground beef from my Cheeseburger Pizza, this is what I came up with. I recommend storing any leftover meat mixture in the fridge immediately because otherwise you will be tempted to eat it out of the bowl with a spoon! Trust me. These may not be the prettiest or fanciest things I’ve made but they’re a great way to get all the yummy flavors of a juicy, cheesy burger in a low carb, low point way.

    These were awesome! Even my picky eater husband loved them and took one to work the next day for lunch. Very easy to make. I will be making these again.

    I’m so glad to hear they were a hit! I was worried no one would try them because the pictures kind of just look like a pile of meat on a piece of lettuce, but they were good! Thanks for letting me know how they turned out for you. :)

    OMG this was great. I was a little worried that the cheese wouldn’t melt in well, but it comes together quickly and is SUPER tasty. Emily I am growing to LOVE your blog!

    Sooooo yummy and easy! This was the 1st recipe I tried of yours and I can’t wait to try more! You are right about putting the meat away right away! My hubby LOVED these too!

    I’ve made this several times and the ingredients are perfect, but I prefer to put the cheese in a small bowl in the microwave by itself and then add to the pan. Easier that way. Delicious recipe!

    Any side recommendations? I’m planning on making these up tonight (it’s rainy and cold here so these seem like awesome comfort food) but don’t know what to put with them

    Just made these tonight. I wasn’t expecting to LOVE them, but they were delicious! I couldn’t stop myself from eating the meat from the bowl! The ketchup and mustard mixed into the meat really made this dish. I will definitely be making this again!

    I knew I would love these after the cheeseburger cupcakes – and they were amazing! I used green cabbage instead of lettuce because it’s what I had on hand. I’m thinking cheeseburger quesadillas with the leftovers? Yum!

    It would help if you put the WW Points on the recipe I googled lettuce wraps and yours popped up as a WW one. I love the idea of satisfying my cheese burger craving without having to quit my diet for the day thanks for this yummy treat.

      The WW points are right at the end of the recipe!

    Wow! Another great recipe! I found your site around the time you got started then fell off the ww wagon. I recently jumped back on and I don’t know how I would stick to it without your amazing meals! I am going to try one each night for the next week :) this one is staying in rotation for sure.
