Adapted from Beef O’brady’s Cheeseburger Wrap, this recipe is a simple but satisfying item that essentially amounts to a cheeseburger wrapped in a tortilla, then grilled.
There are tons of “Beef’s” all over Florida, one is only a mile down the road from me. And one of my favorite items on their menu is their signature “Cheeseburger Wrap,” which amounts to marrying a basic cheeseburger with a Mexican flour tortilla, then grilling it to succulent perfection. If you are a cheeseburger fan like I am, you will truly enjoy the specially blended flavors as all the ingredients are melded together for tasty burger fix that will satisfy even the most particular taste buds. Although this recipe is similar to theirs, I have added a few modifications of my own.
Grilled Cheeseburger Wrap
1/4 lb ground beef (I prefer ground chuck)
2 slices American cheese (or Swiss if you prefer)
1 12” flour tortilla
1 Tbsp mayonnaise
1 tsp. mustard
2 oz. diced tomatoes
6 pickle slices, diced (preference is Bread & Butter pickles, but you can use Dill pickles as well.)
(*Note – during this session I made two wraps, so photos and amount of ingredients shown are actually for two wraps.)
Brown ground beef; drain.
Melt cheese on browned meat.
Add pickle, mustard, mayo and tomato to the tortilla.
Place meat and cheese on tortilla and fold into wrap.
Wrap folding tips:
• Fold left and right side of tortilla up
Fold leading edge (the edge closest to you) of tortilla over filling
Roll tortilla with filling to close
Place wrap on hot skillet with folded end down. (Cast iron works best, but a George Foreman grill will work nicely as well) Let sit for one minute. Turn over to brown for one minute; cut in half; enjoy. (If you use a George Foreman grill, you can grill both sides at once.)
*Note – this recipe lends itself to some serious variations on a theme….substitute any kind of cheese you like….perhaps add some diced jalapenos….use diced dill pickle instead of sweet….and you can even…heaven forbid…add ketchup! 🙂 In any case, the combinations are endless, but above all, savor the goodness of the original recipe, and experiment carefully…yet boldly!
Buen Provecho! (Enjoy Your Meal!)
