These lettuce wrap burgers are the healthy, low-carb, and gluten-free answer to all your indulgent burger cravings. Load it up or keep it simple, either way, they're a fun fresh twist on an old-fashioned hamburger!
Combine the hamburger, salt, garlic powder and pepper in a small bowl. Then form 4 patties and press a thumbprint into the center. Cook in a skillet over medium-high heat for 3 to 5 minutes per side or until the internal temperature reaches 155ºF. Remove to a plate lined with paper towel to catch any extra grease.
While the hamburgers are cooling, prepare your desired toppings.
Divide the lettuce onto four plates. Once the hamburgers have slightly cooled, add to the top of lettuce. Then add desired toppings.
Serve while warm. Store leftover meat separate from the toppings.
To bake in the oven:
Preheat the oven to 425°F. Line a rimmed baking sheet with foil. Then place a cooling rack on top of the foil wrapped pan.
Place burgers on rack and cook for 15 minutes, or until juices run clear and the internal temperature reaches 155°F.
