So you don't always have hamburger buns on hand, and using sandwich bread for your hamburgers just doesn't always cut it.

I know that when we've tried to use sandwich bread, it always gets soggy and crumbles. So we thought, "Why not tortillas?!"

Not only were they durable enough to hold up a hamburger patty and plenty of toppings, but they didn't get soggy and they held everything into the cheeseburger.

We were easily able to pick it up by hand without causing a huge mess and it was super easy to eat. The tortilla also allowed for us to use that much less bread with our cheeseburger, but just enough to make it perfect.

We may have to eat all of our homemade cheeseburgers this way in the future. Delicious!!

Let's see how you can do the same for your cheeseburgers tonight.

Cook Time

Prep time: 10 min
Cook time: 10 min
Ready in: 20 min
Yields: Serves 4 people 1 cheeseburger taco each

Ingredients

  • 2 pounds hamburger
  • 4 pieces American cheese
  • 4 regular tortillas
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/2 envelope Lipton Onion soup mix
  • 2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 tablespoon McCormick Hamburger seasoning
  • 1 tablespoon McCormick Roasted Garlic and Herb seasoning
  • optional lettuce
  • optional tomatoes
  • optional condiments

Instructions

  1. Start by thawing your hamburger meat. My husband chose to thaw it in the sink in room temperature water.
  2. In the meantime, pull out all of your ingredients for seasoning your hamburger meat. (To tell you the truth, I just looked through our seasonings and pulled out what sounded the best.)
  3. Once your meat has thawed, pour it into a large mixing bowl.
  4. Add your egg.
  5. Add one half an envelope of onion soup seasoning.
  6. Add your Roasted Garlic and Herb seasoning.
  7. And now your Hamburger seasoning.
  8. Finally, add in your Worcestershire sauce.
  9. Mix all of your ingredients together and let them marinate on the counter for a few minutes.
  10. My husband prefers to cook his hamburgers on the grill, so you can see him lighting it up and cleaning it in preparation for cooking the hamburgers.
  11. I did not witness the actual "cooking" process on the grill. lol It was cold outside. But Tim's cooking is always amazing so I don't question it.
  12. Without any skills with the grill myself, I personally would have simply cooked them in a skillet over medium heat on the stove (covered with a lid), similar to the way we cook chicken breasts on the grill; 5 to 10 minutes on one side, 10 to 15 on the other at a slightly lower temperature.
  13. After your patties have cooked, add your cheese slices at the very end and let melt for a few minutes.
  14. While your hamburgers are cooking, pull out and prepare all of your chosen cheeseburger toppings to be ready when your hamburgers are done.
  15. We pulled out our ketchup, mayonnaise (yuck!), and leftover salad chock full of yummy fruits and veggies.
  16. When ready, lay one of your hamburger patties on one side of a tortilla.
  17. Top with whatever toppings you normally like on your cheeseburgers.
  18. Fold over your tortilla and serve with my yummy Homemade Baked French Fries.
  19. Yummy! Yummy!

Personal Review

Just as all hamburgers are not the same, neither does this have to be.

Want to mix your hamburger meat with onions and bbq sauce before cooking? What about making a stuffed hamburger?

With this recipe you can use or not use anything you want to make your delicious hamburger patties, even cooking them exactly like you want.

Then to make these even better, you get to add all sorts of yummy toppings that make it perfect for you.

My husband used mayonnaise on his, along with ketchup and all of the lettuce he could pull out of our leftover salad. lol He didn't want all of the extra fruits and veggies on his cheeseburger.

I topped mine with TONS of ketchup and tons of extra fruits and veggies along with the lettuce I put in my tortilla.

You can really make this meal anything you want it to be. My husband would tell you that the only thing that could have made this better would have been bacon,

      What a delicious idea! I wouldn't miss the bread, either. I agree with your husband. Bacon makes everything better!

      Lol Yes, but bacon is expensive and is great for gaining weight! :) It is delicious! Thanks for the comments!

      Your hamburger recipe sounds delicious. I haven't used all your ingredients in my hamburger's before and I will have to try this. They sound very tasty. I think using tortillas around the hamburger is a great idea. Less bread and calories!
