Burgers are always my go-to ‘cheat’ meal when I get one. Like there’s just something so American about going to a restaurant and getting a giant burger with lots of toppings and then struggling to fit in your mouth. Then you have to wash it down with my fav, sweet potato fries, and beer (duh). Oh and a side of ranch (I have an obsession and I’ve been told it’s weird but it will never stop me from dunking my burger in ranch).
My mouth is literally drooling right now just thinking about it. I love BBQ burgers and cheesecurd burgers, and mushroom swiss burgers, or anything sort out of the ordinary….I haven’t tasted a bad burger yet I don’t think.
But unfortunately, when you’re trying to eat healthy, a burger isn’t usually on the list. There’s a lot of fats and carbs that go into the beef and toppings…probably why they always taste so good.
So I had to kind of deconstruct the burger to make it a healthy option for myself whenever I want it. That way I can pretend that I’m out at one of those restaurants when in reality, I’m sitting on my couch, in my sweats, eating this, and watching some bad television show that I can’t take my eyes off of.
This recipe is amazing because you can really make it your own by the amounts and different kinds of toppings you want on there! I stick to the basics but there is so much room to tweak it.
- 3 oz. 93% lean beef
- 1 Serving Joseph lavish flatbread
- 1 C. shredded lettuce
- 2 Spears pickles
- 1/4 C. shredded cheese
- 1 TBSP mustard
- 1 TBSP ketchup
- Brown beef in a skillet. Add any seasonings you like on your burgers. I just do salt and pepper and keep it simple.
- In the air fryer or your oven, cut up strips of Joseph's Lavish Flatbread, spray with some avocado oil, (375 degrees in air fryer, 400 degrees in the oven) Bake for a few minutes, flip over, and bake until they are crispy!
- In a bowl, place your lettuce, add on any desired toppings. Beef, flatbread, cheese, pickles, mustard, ketchup, ranch, mayo, etc.
