Cheeseburger Wrap-Ups {recipe}

Cheeseburger Wrap-Ups


I had this recipe pinned on my Main Courses board on Pinterest for a couple of months now. I had planned on making it then. I got all the ingredients together, but then I then realized I had no way to grill it up. I'm sure I could have done it in a skillet on the stove, but it just seemed like it wouldn't be the same if I made it that way. 
Well you can imagine my excitement when I was browsing the shelves during my weekly Goodwill visit and I came upon an awesome barely used George Foreman with the removable plates. I was trying to decide what the grill's first job should be when I remembered that delicious looking picture I had pinned. I used the recipe as a guide, and changed it just a bit based on my preferences.


What You Will Need
*Made 3 wraps*
1 lb ground beef or ground turkey
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
1 tablespoon ketchup
1 teaspoon garlic, minced
pepper and salt to taste
  3 flour tortillas (the larger ones)
  1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
sliced tomatoes
Pickles, sandwich sliced
Optional toppings:
mustard, lettuce, onion

Directions
1. In a skillet, brown the ground beef/turkey. Half way through add the minced garlic. Once that is fully cooked, add the Worcestershire sauce, ketchup, salt, and pepper. Mix thoroughly and let simmer for about 5 minutes.

2. Lay out each tortilla shell. Sprinkle cheese down the center of each tortilla. Add 1/3 of the meat mixture to each tortilla (on top of cheese). Add the rest of the toppings.

3. Roll the tortillas up like a burrito. Place in pre-heated George Foreman grill. Cook for about 5 minutes until cheese is melted.

4. Cut in half and enjoy!

  3. These cheese part isn't the healthiest, but I love me some cheese! It is a better on the carb side though. Having that George Foreman is awesome! I love it!

  4. I used to have one a while ago and used it mostly for making turkey burgers. Then when we moved I sold it. I really don't know why because I actually liked using it. I forgot about having one until I saw this recipe and then I had to have one again! So glad I found one at goodwill because I would have never bought one new. It's so worth it though because you can make tons on it.

    Looks super simple. Definitely something that I need to do. We get ground meat every time I go to the store, but I'm so tired of spaghetti. We've had meatloaf, stew, and now I can try these wraps! Thanks for sharing with Countdown in Style!

  13. I get so bored with the same meals too. I try to look on Pinterest every week or so to get some new ideas and this is one I found on there. It is really easy if you have a grill and the taste is awesome too!
