  • 1 lb ground beef
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp pepper
  • 1/2 cup grated cheddar cheese
  • 1 head Boston lettuce
  • 2 plum tomatoes, sliced
  • 1/2 small red onion, sliced
  • 6 sliced pickles

Special sauce

  • 1/2 cup light mayo (or sour cream)
  • 1 tbsp BBQ sauce
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp paprika


  • Preheat BBQ to med-high. Mix ingredients for special sauce together and prep veggies.
  • Mix salt and pepper into ground beef, mixing well to combine. Form 8 evenly-sized very thin (1/4 inch) patties and place onto grill, BBQing for 1-2 minutes per side. Remove from grill and add cheese to one patty, then stack with another patty and top with more cheese.
  • Lay lettuce leaves on plates and topping with two slices pickles and two slices of tomatoes. Add beef patties with melted cheese, and top with red onions, then drizzle with special sauce. Serve and enjoy!



For an even healthier option, make these burgers with ground turkey instead of ground beef.
If you can’t find Boston lettuce, use romaine or iceberg lettuce.
Store all the leftovers separately in the fridge for up to 5 days. Reheat the burgers in the microwave then assemble your lettuce wraps fresh.
Freeze the beef patties for up to 3 months then cook from frozen.
