The Lettuce Bun [video]

Posted by 4 years ago 7 Comments

I’m TRYING to get back into videos guys. I miss them. This is quick (only 5 minutes, can you believe it!?!) video where I show my technique for using lettuce as a bun. It’s a quick, easy way to ditch the extra bread during your next summer BBQ.

Hope it helps those of you looking for light burger bun alternative.

    What a unique idea with the lettuce! And I will have to try the difference between the grinder and just regular shakers. Because I just use the regular shakers I never really thought about making the peppers bigger in size for more flavor! Nice! Live Active! Nick K Reply

    I have tried this and works a treat. Too musch bread caurses bloating of the stomach. Thanks Reply

    Great idea! I've been craving burgers a lot lately, so I'll have to try this tip to make it a less calorie filled meal :) Videos are so fun too, so I'd love to see more! Reply

    I do my burgers like that all the time, but last night I tried the green beans on the grill for the first time and I'm totally smitten! What a great idea and they really do taste like fries. Reply

    I had the burger on the lettuce for dinner tonight..I really liked it, a little messy but that was due to the pickles and tomato. Refreshing. Reply
