SCD Recipe: Lettuce Wrapped Cheeseburgers

This is super easy. I really like using lettuce as a substitute for bread or tortillas because it’s so much easier, is less calories, and it tastes good.

1 – 1 1/2 lbs grass fed ground beef (ok it doesn’t actually have to be grass fed, but that is what I use)
Sharp Cheddar Cheese
Yellow Mustard
Butter Lettuce Leaves – I used 4 leaves per burger

Form ground meat into patties (I made 4 medium sized burgers). Cook over medium heat approximately 5 minutes per side (I like mine medium to medium well). Melt cheese on top of burgers.

Place two lettuce leaves on a plate, top with burger, mustard, tomato and two more lettuce leaves.
