Lettuce Wrap FAIL!

4 Dec

So yesterday I was seriously craving a homemade burger!

I am not too complicated when it comes to cooking, and most definitely not when I am hungry!

After my 8 hour shift on a Sunday, I booked it home and threw together these burgers:

1.5 pound lean ground beef

1/4 finely chopped onion

1 minced clove of garlic

Handful of chopped up chives

1 egg

1 Tsp of gluten-free flour

Salt and pepper to your liking

See not overly complicated! …Not as flavorful as it could be but to hungry to experiment!

I also caramelized some onions! Heat on low-medium covered in a bit of oil and a sprinkle of sugar.


Instead of a bun I used lettuce. This was my first attempt at a lettuce wrapped burger, and I honestly had no clue what I was doing. I basically just ate it with a fork and knife, tasted the same to me! lol =)

This was Parker at just over a year, he is now 3.

Okay maybe it was not that old, but I can’t use it fast enough!

      Glad I could make you smile! My kid plays with things that are unconventional at times, and that picture was the first thing I thought of when I saw that the stupid mustard was expired! lol

    That’s an awesome idea! My mom went out of the country for a week, so I’m the one who’s cooking for my dad and since I bought groceries, he can’t go out and buy food anywhere because I already wasted the money. So, now he’s forced to eat much healthier (specially since I refuse to deep fry bacon for him) and this seems like a great thing to have for lunch this week! :)
