Cheeseburger Wraps

Grilled outdoors or in, these are good

I like grilled foods, but sometimes you can't or don't want to stand outside to grill things

What is really good about these NO BUNS! No extra Carbs from all that bread Right

Cheeseburger Wraps
1 lb ground beef
2 tablespoons ketchup
1 tablespoon mustard
1 teaspoon dried minced onion
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
salt and pepper to taste
5 flour tortillas
1 1/2 cups cheddar cheese
additional hamburger toppings you like (tomatoes, lettuce, pickles, ketchup, mustard, etc)

In a large skillet, brown hamburger until no longer pink. Add ketchup, mustard, onion, Worcestershire sauce, and salt and pepper and cook for about 2 minutes, until all combined.
Take a tortilla and line the middle with a small amount of cheddar cheese. Add some cooked hamburger beef and then top with your favorite hamburger toppings. Roll the tortilla up and tuck in the ends (like a burrito). You can either eat as is or throw on a grill (or even an indoor grill- like a George Foreman grill) for 3-5 minutes (just until you see grill marks).
These go perfectly with our Baked Tater Wedges and Fry Sauce! see Below***

Recipe slightly adapted from Skinny Mom’s Kitchen
If you are looking for the perfect side dish, look no further. You have to try these.  I love that they are baked and not fried- but they still have a “crunch” to them! They also have great flavor.I do agree
6 Russet Potatoes cut into lengthwise quarters
6 tablespoons flour
2 teaspoons onion powder
2 teaspoons of garlic powder
2 teaspoons paprika
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon black pepper
4 tablespoons oil (I use olive oil, but vegetable oil and canola oil would work too)

Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Add your oil to a baking sheet with sides.
Cut each potato into 8 wedges. Combine all dry ingredients into bag–either Ziploc or paper,  and add a few potatoes at a time. Shake to coat well. Place the potatoes coated side down into the oil in the pan.
Continue doing this until all the potatoes have been coated and placed in the oil. Bake for about 20 minutes and then pull out and flip over on the other side. Bake for an extra 20 minutes. Pull wedges out of the oven and then sprinkle with alittle kosher salt. Serve hot.

Famous PINK Fry Sauce? 
OH. MY. GOODNESS. Once you have tried it, it’s too good not to share with the world!)
This is how we make it: this is pretty close to McDonald's Big Mac Sauce ;)
2/3 cup mayo (light is fine)
1/3 cup ketchup
Mix together until thoroughly blended.
The great thing about this is you can add more ketchup/mayo to how you like it. I know that some restaurants substitute BBQ sauce for the ketchup, which is really good too! I have also thrown in some relish, which ads a yummy taste. Some people also prefer hot fry sauce and kick it up a notch with Tabasco sauce. I have even heard of people adding a couple drops of liquid smoke or Worcestershire sauce
