Burger Roll

Salam all,

This is our quick dinner recipe. Very simple, you can use any cooked meat u have or any leftover will do. I used my homemade beef patty to make this roll. Actually i felt boring with regular burger bun so i made a change to use tortila wrap. The good thing is, when i grill my stuffed tortila wrap, it made my burger taste so light & crunchy. Its full of vegies & my kids loved it. Here the recipe...

Burger Roll
  • 2 pcs tortilla wrap
  • 2 slice cheddar cheese
  • 2 cooked beef patties, sliced
  • 2 pcs salad leaves, thinly sliced
  • 1 tomato, remove the seed & cubed
  • 1 tbsp butter
  • 1 capsicum, thinly sliced
  • 1 package button mushroom
  • 1 tsp black pepper
  • Mayonaise
Melt the butter in the frying pan. Add capsicum, mushroom & black pepper, stir fry until the vegetables soft. Set aside.
Take the tortilla wrap, place the cheddar cheese, put the beef patty on top of the cheese. Put 2 tbsp of cooked vegie & top with salad leaves & tomato.
Add mayonnaise, carefully roll the wrap & grill in the frying pan for 1 minute each side.
Cut the roll & serve.
