Lets go outside! Where the sun is shining, the birds are singing and it is time for a BBQ. To honour Summer we are making Big BBQ Chicken Wrap burgers. When I say big I mean BIG. Go big or go home right? Well these burgers are definitely in the first category. You can dress them up how ever you like. So take out all your favorite toppings and get that BBQ going. Are you ready for these big BBQ chicken wrap burgers? Lets get started!
So tell me are you a char coal or electric/gas kinda of BBQ-er? I truly love the flavour that charcoal adds to anything you put on the barbecue but to be honest it does take a lot of time just to get the barbecue going. If you are stressed for time or do not own a charcoal barbecue you can fire up your electric/gas barbecue or use a grill pan. The end result will be equally great (without the charcoal flavour that is).
For this occasion I took out the charcoal grill and fired it up. While the coals were burning white I made all the necessary preparations to create the chicken burgers. You can substitute the chicken burgers for beef or lamb or even a vegetarian burger will do great in this dish. After I discovered the burger from De vegetarische slager I have not made regular beef burgers anymore.
The chicken burgers are made of egg, breadcrumbs, onion, salt and pepper and the minced chicken meat. Mix through and divide into four burgers. After grilling the burgers on the barbecue I also roasted some red onion and two strips of bacon. To finish it off I let the big tortillas warm through on the barbecue as well. If you have children or want to do a summer buffet just use small tortillas and one burger. Fold the tortillas the same way and you have a mini chicken wrap burger.
Then it is time to assemble the burgers. You stack up one side of the tortilla with lettuce, burger, onion, tomato and bacon. Do the same steps in reverse so bacon, tomato, onion, burger and lettuce before folding the tortilla one time and them one more time to get a nice big BBQ chicken wrap burger. Serve with some baked potatoes, homemade guacamole and you have the best Summer burger. Don’t these burgers look delicious?
