It's impossible to miss cheeseburgers if you've got these amazing cheeseburger quesadillas on hand. You can choose your favorite toppings and snazzy them up to your liking: jalapenos, pepper jack cheese, mushrooms & swiss, feta and sun-dried tomatoes...the sky is the limit to how creative you can get with these.</span>
Recipe type: Main Dish
Cuisine: American
Serves: 6
  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1 onion, sliced into rounds
  • 2½ T. butter-divided
  • 6 low carb tortillas-with 6 net carbs or less
  • 6 slices of your favorite cheese, I used sharp cheddar
  • sugar free ketchup, or THM ketchup p. 411
  • dill pickle relish
  • mayo-light or regular-the squeezy bottle is easiest
  • mustard
  • 10-15 cherry tomatoes, quartered
  • 4 pieces of leaf lettuce, torn into pieces
  1. Brown your ground beef, allowing the bottom layer to really get a nice deep brown for best flavor. Drain.
  2. Add ½ of a T of butter to a skillet, and cook onion rings on medium heat until caramelized and browned well.
  3. Pre-cut tomatoes into wedges, and wash and tear lettuce. This step, and the two previous steps can be done ahead of time.
  4. Assemble all ingredients so that they are close at hand.
  5. Warm a cast iron skillet to medium heat, and melt 1 tsp. of butter on it, swirling to cover the bottom of the pan.
  6. Place a tortilla onto the skillet, and working quickly, add one slice of cheese to one half. I folded mine into half from corner to corner and made two points, so they'd fit better.
  7. Top with about 2-3 tablespoons of ground beef, and 2-3 tablespoons of caramelized onion.
  8. Add mayo, ketchup, mustard and pickle relish.
  9. Fold the empty half over the top of the filled half, and flip to melt it all together well.
  10. Cut into 4 wedges, and serve.
