If you love cheeseburger recipes, but you’re watching the carbs, you can always give these Cheeseburger Lettuce Wraps a go. With crisp lettuce wrappings, ground beef filling, American cheese and delicious light mayo sauce to drizzle on top, you might not ever want to eat your burger buns ever again.

Will the traditional American cheeseburger ever go out of style? Not if we keep reinventing it like this healthy burger recipe does. Good hamburger meat recipes are hard to come by, otherwise. Although eating meat every day of the week is not ideal for a number of reasons, every once in a blue moon we all need a good dose of protein and iron. A serving of lean ground beef can give you that. Ground beef is also high in nutrients like niacin, selenium, vitamin B12, and zinc. If you’re concerned about your calorie intake, you can try using low-fat cheese and 93 percent lean ground beef for this delicious burger wrap recipe.

Learning a few food safety tips before you start making your cheeseburgers can help you enjoy your meal even more. It will also help keep you and your family free from potential food-borne illness. When working with any kind of meat, whether it’s pork, chicken, beef, or seafood, it’s important to be aware of a few easy home practices to safeguard your kitchen. First things first: proper handling is key to enjoying healthy food-safe recipes. Separate meats from each other in your fridge as well as in your shopping basket. This will help prevent potential cross-contamination between foods and various surfaces. Always wash your hands before cooking, as well as before and after handling meats. Keeping your kitchen clean is also critical. Make sure you wash down all of the surfaces, utensils, cutting boards, pans, and appliances you’ve used when you are done. A helpful tip is to keep two cutting boards, using one for meat and the other for your fruit and veggies. If you use plastic cutting boards, you can easily clean them in the dishwasher. If you’re barbecuing your cheeseburgers on the grill, you’ll want to scrape it down and clean it off first. Turn the grill up to max for several minutes to sterilize it before adding your burgers. Make sure you roast, fry, bake, and broil your meat and seafood at the correct temperature, and for the appropriate length of time, to ensure that it’s fully cooked and cooked properly.
