That simply means – No breadcrumbs, no buns!


The list of ingredients:


Ground beef, salt, pepper, Worcestershire sauce, tomatoes, avocados, red onion, mayonnaise, Dijon mustard, and (optional) pickles!


Throw the ground beef in a bowl and sprinkle in some salt…


And pepper (incl other fresh herbs and spices to your taste)


Add several dashes of Worcestershire sauce.


Knead it all together with your hands…


Form the beef into patties…


And cook them in a skillet over medium-high heat…


Until they’re totally done in the middle.


Make the sauce by throwing the mayo into a bowl.


Add the Dijon…


And a few dashes of Worcestershire, then stir it together to combine.


Cut an avocado in half…


And scoop out the good stuff.


Then slice the halves.


Thinly slice some red onion…


And slice a tomato.


Now for the fun part! Peel off the outer couple of leaves of lettuce if they’re bruised or unsightly, then use a knife to cut each leaf loose at the base.


Very carefully peel off individual leaves of lettuce, leaving them as intact as you can.


Place a patty on top of a leaf…


Then throw on some tomatoes, avocado, and onions.


Drizzle on some of the sauce…


Then tuck in the sides and wrap a second leaf around the burger.

You can even wrap a third lettuce leaf around the burger if you’re feeling decadent and naughty!

Just kidding. It’s lettuce. I’m glad we had this talk.


Then just pick it up and dig in as you would any ol’ burger! It’s best if the lettuce is super cold and crisp when you begin. And if you want even more cool-crispness, pile on some lettuce before you wrap it with more lettuce! Or you can pile on cilantro leaves, pico de gallo—anything that floats your boat.

Either way, enjoy. You can’t go wrong with this one.



  • 2 pounds Ground Chuck or any lean ground meat (or combination of)
  • 1 teaspoon Kosher Salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon Black Pepper
  • 5 dashes Worcestershire Sauce
  • 2 Tablespoons Butter

Preparation Instructions

Make the sauce: Mix together mayonnaise, Dijon, and Worcestershire. Set aside.

In a bowl, combine ground chuck, salt, black pepper, and 5 dashes Worcestershire sauce. Form four patties and set aside.

Heat butter in a skillet over medium-high heat. Fry patties until done in the middle.

Top patties with tomato slices, avocado slices, and red onion slices. Drizzle with the sauce to taste.

Cut the base of each lettuce leaf on the head and carefully peel it away so that it stays as intact as possible. Use 2 or 3 leaves per burger patty and wrap them around the patty as tightly as you can.

Slice in half and serve immediately!

    A couple of tips:
    Add a pound of ground sirloin to the ground chuck. Also, apply the salt to the outside of the burger.

    I have tried it both ways and the article is correct.

    Reblogged this on and commented:
    I’ve been Gluten Free, Dairy Free and Soy Free for about 2 years now! Having your meals without bread seems weird at first, but honestly you don’t need it. There isn’t any helpful nutritional value from bread that you can’t get from other foods. Once you go breadless, you will forget what it’s like to even crave a ‘sandwich’. If you want to take things to the next level with eating clean, forget about the bagels, English muffins, whole wheat slices, pitas, and even flat outs! Enjoy this recipe 😉

    p.s. If I made this burger I would use lean ground turkey and no mayo!
