This healthy cheeseburger wrap is filled with lean ground beef, melted cheese, and all your favorite hamburger toppings. Adding it to the grill for a few minutes will add this unbelievable smokey flavor- just like a real burger! Once you serve this grilled wrap to your family, they will be asking for it every night!
Tonight, I was in the mood for a burger. Not a turkey burger but a real juicy beef burger.
Plain and simple.
The only problem was I did not want to eat it on a bun nor did I want to go over the top with a whole bunch of calories.
Thankfully, I was inspired to make this absolutely scrumptious “You think this was takeout” cheeseburger wrap! At only 329 calories, I’m happy to say I can still eat the foods I want without sacrificing taste for calories.
I can’t tell you how juicy and delicious it was. You’ll just need to make it yourself!
Frequently Asked Questions About This Cheeseburger Wrap Recipe
Before I jump into this recipe, I wanted to answer a few questions I received from some of my readers about this healthy cheeseburger wrap.
What Kind Of Wraps Do I Need?
To make these cheeseburger wraps, I love to buy Flatout Wraps from Wegman’s when they are available. They hold together really nicely and don’t fall apart when we go to take a bite from our wraps.
You can also buy wraps that are flavored such as:
- Whole wheat
If you are looking for a low carb option, you can also serve your grilled cheeseburger filling in a lettuce wrap or these low-carb wraps by Father Sam’s!
Can I Use Ground Turkey Instead Of Ground Beef?
Yes! Sometimes, I’ll swap out the ground beef for turkey if I don’t have any meat on hand. You can also replace the meat entirely and swap it out for a plant-based “ground beef” if you want to make the wrap vegan or vegetarian.
What Kind Of Burger Toppings Can I Add To This Grilled Wrap?
For this recipe, I used shredded lettuce and sliced tomatoes but you can truly add anything you like.
Some of the other burger toppings I use:
- Sliced onions
- BBQ sauce
- Ranch dressing
For my other cheeseburger lettuce wrap recipe, I used sauteed mushrooms and swiss cheese!
Can I Use A Different Kind Of Cheese?
My favorite kind of cheese to add to this grilled cheeseburger wrap is American! It just melts really well and makes the burger taste so gooooooood!
Here are some other cheeses you can use:
- Cheddar cheese
- Swiss cheese
- Pepper jack cheese
- Gouda cheese
- Provolone cheese
- Blue cheese
- Vegan cheese
Do I Have To Grill It?
No. When I first shared this recipe, I made it on an indoor grill. However, I’ve made it many times since then without using a grill and it was still yummy!
So, if you don’t have a grill, no worries. You can simply roll it up and enjoy!
Healthy Grilled Cheeseburger Wrap
Time to get grilling!
Here are the ingredients you need to make this wrap:
- Ground beef (I used 93/7 organic grass-fed beef)
- Worcestershire sauce
- Grated parmesan
- Onion powder
- Garlic powder
- Wraps (I use Flatout Wraps)
- American cheese (I use Wegman’s organic)
- Roma tomatoes (sliced)
- Diced onions
- Romaine lettuce
- Additional ketchup, mustard, mayo (optional)
How To Make A Cheeseburger Wrap
In a medium to large skillet coated with cooking spray, cook the ground beef on medium heat until it’s almost cooked through but still a little pink (about 7-10 minutes).
Make sure to break up the beef as it cooks.
Add the Worcestershire, ketchup, grated parmesan, onion powder, garlic powder, salt, and pepper to the beef. Mix it all together until it’s all thoroughly combined.
Continue cooking everything until the ground beef is cooked all the way through and it is no longer pink.
In the center of the wrap, place a slice of cheese and 1/2 cup of the beef mixture. Add the lettuce, tomato and all of the other toppings/condiments you want.
Roll it up and enjoy!
How To Grill A Cheeseburger Wrap
If you’re using a grill, let it heat up until it hits 350 degrees. If you don’t have a grill, you can also use a grill pan. My favorite grill pan is this Lodge Grill Pan. It’s under $20 and one of the best kitchen items I’ve purchased!
Roll the wrap and place it seam side down onto the grill. Once there are grill marks on one side, turn it over. Grill for another 2-3 minutes and then remove from the grill.
How To Meal Prep This Grilled Wrap
To meal prep this cheeseburger recipe ahead of time, I like to turn it into a freezer kit!
- Cook up the beef mixture as you normally would and freeze it in a freezer-friendly bag.
- Follow the rest of the steps above and let it cool slightly.
- Then, put the rest of the ingredients into separate freezer bags or containers and add it to your freezer.
To reheat the whole meal, take out the freezer kit the night before or day of and thaw it out in the refrigerator. Warm everything up in the microwave and assemble your wrap to eat!
