These cheeseburger melts are a fun recipe for lunch or dinner! A healthy way to enjoy a cheeseburger without the bun!
I think it’s safe to say that my boys are obsessed with cheeseburger melts. Actually, cheeseburgers in general. But since I’m not one of those grill come rain, shine, or snow kind of cooks, I’ve had to find different ways to make a cheeseburger without turning on the grill. Plus, have you ever seen a one-year-old pickup a cheeseburger? Well if you have I want to know a. who that kid is and b. did the burger actually make it to their mouth? Since Anthony hasn’t quite gotten the hang of hand-eye coordination with a burger, these cheeseburger melts give him the opportunity to pick up the ground beef crumbles with no problem at all.
As someone who watches what my family eats, I’m conscious about a few cheeseburger “parts” or ingredients. Hence, why I chose lean Ground Beef and a Flatout Flatbread in lieu of a bun for this recipe. While Flatout has so many products to choose from, I like the Light Original flatbread. 90 calories, high in fiber, and 9 grams of protein per serving, this is one cheeseburger melt you do not want to skimp or eat without the carbs! While this cheeseburger mixture is delicious on a bed a lettuce, I find it much more satisfying and filling [and honestly, I get less complaints from my entourage] when I use flatbread for the base!Cheeseburger Melts are a fun and healthy way to enjoy a burger without the bun!
