Grilled Cheeseburger Wrap – Slender Kitchen

Grilled Cheeseburger Wraps are taking our kitchen by storm as one of our favorite quick and easy dinners. I mean what’s not to like about a cheeseburger with all the fixings grilled into a cripsy, crunchy wrap.

I don’t even know where to start with today’s Grilled Cheeseburger Wrap because we loved it so much.  The inspiration came from a local restaurant that has a pressed cheeseburger sandwich that is insanely delicious and probably equally insanely high in calories given everything they stuff inside.  From the first bite, I knew I wanted to create a healthier version at home but first I needed to do a bit of investigating to learn how they flavored their beef.  Turns out they add the condiments right into the beef – ketchup, mustard, and Worcestershire sauce – and the resulting flavor is spot on.  Pretty genius right?  So I did the same and added everything right into the ground beef once it was browned.  From there, it’s easy.  Add your favorite toppings, wrap it up, and grill it.  Yum.

Here are some notes for making these Grilled Cheeseburger Wraps:

  • While I normally reach for beef, you can definitely use ground turkey, chicken, buffalo, or pork. You’ll be shocked at how much flavor the ketchup, mustard, and Worcestershire sauce add and the moisture will also help drier meats, like ground turkey breast, stay tender.
  • For some reason I am a bit of a traditionalist when it comes to this burger wrap and stick to the basics – ketchup, yellow mustard, onions, pickles, tomatoes, and cheese. However you should definitely push the boundaries here and load in all your favorite toppings. Diced jalapenos would be delicious, try out goat or blue cheese, toss in some diced bacon, or add barbecue sauce instead of ketchup. You can basically mimic almost any burger flavors you enjoy.
  • Since you are cooking all the toppings inside the tortilla shell, I like to add the lettuce on top since I am not a huge fan of warm lettuce. Plus it looks pretty piled high on top for serving. If you don’t mind if the lettuce gets a little warm, toss it inside for a cleaner, easier to eat wrap.
  • For a vegetarian version, use vegetarian crumbles. Just make sure to warm them through completely and drain any excess moisture.  If the filling is too moist, it will cause the wrap to burst open.
  • Although it’s tempting, don’t overfill your wraps. It will cause the crunchy shell to burst open and you’ll lose all the yummy filling in the pan.
  • For a fun family dinner, let everyone build their own burger wraps and then grill them up.

Here are some of the products and tools I used in creating this recipe:

  • Skillet: I am in love with this pan that I use to prepare this dish but you could use any heavy bottomed pan or cast iron. A wok would also work great for this recipe.
  • Wraps: Usually I use a low carb wrap or tortilla to make these since it keeps them a bit lighter. However you could use any tortilla or wrap you like.
