Cheeseburger Wrap

You can't really find much better than a burger can you?  When I started eating healthily, I was delighted that I could have pretty much anything I wanted within reason and that burgers weren't necessarily off the menu.  I've had good success with my New York Patty Melt, but when that feels like its your only burger options it gets a bit boring :).  I was watching an episode for Diners, Drive Ins and Dives - and saw them making something called a Cuban sandwich - It looked delish, but the main thing that caught my eye was that it was so thin - it was packed with goodies, but they weight down the bread so much when they were cooking it, that it went so thin and then they whacked it in a panini grill.   That was when the green light went on in my head seen as the bread goes so thin - I could so do this with a wrap! 
I checked out some recipes for a burger wrap, and there are a lot available online - but none that i found actually used a proper burger in it - all just a mince mixture - but my way - you get all the goodness, the juiciness and the cheese that just makes it glorious! 
You can add any condiments you want.  Jazz it up with some mustard, ketchup, even add some bacon - The burger wrap is your blank canvas! enjoy!!

Cooking Time: 15 Minutes
Serves: 4

You Will Need: 

4 x Tortilla Wraps ( I use WW own)
500g Extra Lean Mince Beef
1 Tsp Granulated Onion
1 Tsp Garlic Powder
1/2 Tsp Worcestershire Sauce
4 Light Cheese Slices (I use Sainsbury's own)
Lettuce Shredded ( I used Romain Lettuce)
Tomatoes Sliced
Red Onion Sliced
4 Tbsp Extra Light Mayo
Frylight/Calorie Controlled Oil Spray
Salt & Pepper for Seasoning

George Foreman Grill/Panini Press or something similar


Turn on your George Foreman/panini press to heat up

Place the Mince in a big bowl and add the onion, garlic, Worcestershire sauce and salt and pepper

Combine with a wooden spoon but make sure you don't overwork it otherwise it will fall apart.

Split the mixture into 4, and mould the mince into oval shaped burgers - you can go for round, but I find them easier to wrap if they are this shape

Heat some oil in a frying pan and cook the burgers, for around 4-5 minutes each side (don't worry if they aren't cooked all the way through as they will finish in the grill and I actually prefer mine a bit pink and juicy).

Heat the wraps in the micro for 10 seconds, so they become easier to handle

Add the mayo on the centre of the wrap, and top with the lettuce tomatoes, onion and cheese (I find it easier if you tear the cheese slice in half, and then the area it covers is better!

Top with the beefburger you have made, and wrap up - you want it all to be tucked in so that nothing can fall out.

Place on the grill seam up - I do it this way so that no juices come out etc..

Grill for 3-4 minutes, until the wrap has gone crispy and the cheese has melted
