Cheese-stuffed burgers

There is nothing quite as satisfying as a hot-off-the-grill burger. The problem with most burgers is the bun, which is filled with grains, gluten and simple carbs that are easily stored as unwanted fat.This recipe for Cheese-Stuffed Lettuce Wrapped Burgers provides that great burger taste, without the carbs. To make you forget about the bun, I placed a cube of fresh mozzarella cheese in the center of each patty, making every bite a cheesy, gooey experience.Servings: 4Hereís what you need:

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 yellow onion, sliced
  • 1 lb. grass fed ground beef
  • 1 tablespoon ketchup
  • 1 tablespoon yellow mustard
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 4 oz mozzarella, cut into 4,1-inch cubes
  • 1 head iceberg lettuce
  • 1 tomato, sliced
  1. Place the olive oil in a skillet over medium-high heat. Add the sliced onion and cook until tender, about 10 minutes. Remove from heat and set aside.
  2. Preheat your grill to medium-high.
  3. In a large bowl, combine the beef, ketchup, mustard, salt, pepper and garlic powder. Mix with your hands until the ingredients are fully combined. Divide the meat into four equally sized balls.
  4. Press a piece of mozzarella into the center of each ball of meat and flatten into a patty. Make sure to keep the mozzarella fully covered on all sides.
  5. Grill the patties for 4-5 minutes per side, until cooked to your desired doneness.
  6. Assemble the burgers with a large piece of lettuce, a slice of tomato and a spoonful of tender onions. Enjoy!
