Cheeseburger Flatbread Melts

I cannot tell you how much I love these cheeseburger flatbread melts. I love them. I think I could eat just about anything that was enveloped in this delicious buttery flatbread. It knocks my socks off. These little melts are so easy to throw together for a quick, simple dinner.

What’s not to love?


How To Make These Marvelous Melts

To make this no-frills delight start with 1/2 pound of lean hamburger meat, browned and drained.


We’ll be adding these fine ingredients to make a beefy sauce that’s absolutely loaded with flavor.


One package of dry onion soup mix.




Garlic and mustard.


And water and apple cider vinegar.


Give this a stir and set it aside to simmer over low heat. It smells fabulous right now.


Meanwhile, grab your canola oil and a large, heavy bottomed skillet.


Heat two tablespoons over medium heat.


While that’s heating up up, we’re going to work on our flatbread. Break out the thin crust pizza dough for this flatbread!


Divide it into six equal sections.


And roll them out…


Until they are uh, mostly round in shape. I did the best I could here.


By the time they are all rolled out, the oil should be hot and shimmering.


Add the dough — it should sizzle, baby!


Let these cook about 1 minute per side until golden brown and bubbly. I cannot tell you how much I love this flatbread.


Take a piece of your thin, chewy flatbread — I let mine get a little brown here, but if that happens, just put the brown side up. We’re about to load it up with toppings and no one will ever be the wiser.


Top with the hot and bubbly beef mixture.


And plenty of shredded cheddar cheese.




When you get ready to eat, simply fold and enjoy! No utensils necessary.

I see a lot more of this flatbread in my future.

Hamburger + taco seasoning + cheddar = Taco Flatbread Melt.
Hamburger + spaghetti sauce + mozzarella = Lasagna Flatbread Melt.
Flatbread + fresh rosemary + sea salt = *faint*

    Thank you so much for this recipe! This has become one of our weekly favorites! I do cut down on the vinegar a lot (I only use 1/4 tsp) and I haven’t ever done the fry bread, (too time consuming for me) we just use the already cooked Pita bread you can buy in a bag at the grocery stores. Thank you so so much!!!

    1. Jennifer

      Also, it took me making this recipe about 3-4 times before I realized that the recipe calls for 1/2 lb of ground beef. I just double the water, use a full onion soup packet, 1/4 tsp apple cider vinegar, 1/2 cup of ketchup, and 2 Tbs of mustard. Sometimes I will add a little heintz 57 sauce, but I haven’t noticed a huge difference. (sorry for the multiple responses, I haven’t ever commented on a site like this before)

    Thank you so much for this recipe! This has become one of our weekly favorites! I haven’t ever done the fry bread though, (too time consuming for me) we just use the already cooked Pita bread you can buy in a bag at the grocery stores. Thank you so so much!!!

  3. Jaimie

    My family loved it – except for the apple cider vinegar in the beef mixture. It overpowered the whole recipe. Next time I will leave that out. But the flatbread was amazing!

  4. Brenda

    I just made these, YUMMY flatbread. I agree with Natasha. I would do very little onion soup or maybe just dry onions instead. Was yummy. My daughter is vegetarian and I told her maybe should could fill with Indian of some kind.
    I just buttered some of the remaining bread and that was pretty darn yummy too :)
    SCORE, love finding new recipes to the collection

  5. Natasha

    Would have been way better if it wasn’t so salty… and I typically like more salt. Maybe cutting the amount of onion soup mix would help?

  6. DessertForTwo

    First of all, this sounds AMAZING. I want skillet-fried pizza dough like now. And second of all, you’ve been taking awesome photos of food since 2011? You’re my hero!

  7. Beverly

    This is great for #glutenfree eaters too since Pillsbury came out with the #GF pizza dough. I’ll be making this for sure.
    For your lasagna version – mix your meats to include some sweet or spicy Italian sausage with your burger, add about 1/4 cup of Ricotta & spaghetti sauce w/spices. Oh yeah!
    I am totally in on this creating a zillion different versions… even dessert ones!
    Can you say “hand pies” with warmed up apple pie filling, or pumpkin w/pumpkin pie spice? Oh and don’t get me started with some different “morsels” such as chocolate chips & peanut butter chips together for some Reese delight!

  8. Lindsay

    Found you on Pinterest! I made the meat mixture using 1 lb of hamburger and stuffed it into pilsbury biscuits that were pushed into a muffin pan! It’s definitely a keeper, next time I’ll actually make them as flat bread melts.

    My aunt uses pizza pizza crust to make breadsticks. She cuts them into strips adds butter (I think?) fresh rosemary and salt and then bakes them. But I’m sure you could use your method too! She serves them with marinara sauce.

  10. Laura

    Im only 12 yrs, and your blog is my favorite blog of all time! All the recipe’s are smart and delicious, and your fonts are really cool to use. Thank u for having this website and please keep adding more recipe’s! <3 Once again THANK U! From: Thailand. ^^

  11. Tracy @ Babies Love Baked Goods

    What a delish looking cross between a sloppy joe and a taco! I’m adding these to our January meal plan – perfect for Momma (who need portion control), Daddy (who loves anything with beef) and babies (who love to eat anything Momma cooks!)


    1. Jessi Hesami

      R they like a cheeseburger or more like a sloppy joe on taste? i was thinking about doing a sloppy joe

  12. Hilary

    Love this! So simple and really tasty!

    Also great, the same recipe only with a taco seasoning versus the onion soup mixture! Gives it a mexican flavor and it’s really yummy topped with any of your favorite taco toppings! :)

  13. benita wheeler

    cheese……..calorie buster, but it is so worth it. little red table cloth. bread straws centerpiece. chesse cake. you got a moment.

  14. Marty

    Looks delicious! What a great idea with the pizza crust. A blank canvas for such a variety of toppings. Thanks for the great recipe.

  15. Andrea Cash

    Just made this for dinner and WOW. I have the pickest sister ever. She never likes anything and she said this was probably the best thing she has ever had.. That means this recipe is a keeper and will be served at everything I go to going forward! Thanks so much..Can’t wait to try your other recipes.

  16. Maggie

    Loved this idea. No one was a huge fan of the meat mixture (but it may have been my fault for not letting the flavors melt together, I rushed, a screaming 6 month old in his high chair will do that ;) ) How ever I LOVE the flat bread idea so much that this is going to be a go to lunch and need to get out of the house quick dinner nights (like when hubby has soft ball) can’t wait to try the other flavor combinations!

  17. Angela

    Totally loved this! I did however substitute crescents the second time I made them, because I had leftover meat topping, and it’s incredible with the buttery flavor of the crescents. I like both, though! Thanks Amanda! I LOVE YOUR WEBSITE! You are absolutely adorable!

  18. Suzanne

    These were awesome! My kids and husband ate a little flatbread with honey on it, as well, and they loved that. I thought they were even delicious all by themselves. All around awesome recipe. I will definitely be using the flatbread idea with different flavors as well. Thanks, Amanda!

  19. beer

    The flat bread can also be done with the flour, baking powder and salt. need to knead, but the taste of artisan flatbread is much better than the industrial one.

  20. Tina

    Hi! I live in New England and was looking for a tasty pulled pork recipe and came across your website. I love the pictures and easy directions! So far this week I have made the pulled pork (Outstanding!) the Baked Beans (get better everyday!) and tonight fed a house full of teenagers the Cheeseburger Flatbreads! (Wow! Thumbs up!) Can’t wait to try the ice cream next!! Hope to see more recipes!!! How about your take on cole slaw or maybe a rice dish?? Looking forward to many summer barbecues to wow my guests!!

  21. katrenia.rhoton

    I am loving all of these “finger” food meals! With five kids it makes clean up a snap! Thank you!!!

  22. Sarah

    I made this again a few nights ago for a girlfriend and myself and we had some leftover. Tonight I took the leftover meat mixture, which was about 2 heaping tablespoons, and added a cup of cooked brown rice, some beef broth and a can of red kidney beans and made what I’m calling “Instant Chili”. It was delicious!!!

  23. Soylent Green

    These are great! I changed it up a little by adding chopped onions to the hamburger and using sloppy joe sauce instead of your ingredients. Also sprinkled some garlic powder on the flatbread while it was cooking. Delicious!!

  24. Kelly

    I’m a little confused. Did you mean to put 1/2 TEASPOON of apple cider vinegar ? Or is it really 1/2 tablespoon which is 1 1/2 teaspoons. Can you please clarify for me? Thanks so much :-)

  25. bob

    So I really wanted to give these a try but I forgot to get the pizza dough. I got lucky and had some of the flaky biscuits. I rolled those out and used them and the whole thing turned out great. Thanks for the recipe.

  26. Sarah

    I finally made this last night for my 16 yo son and myself. It was super yummy and just the right amount, we ate every morsel. It definitely stays on my list!!!

  27. Mary Rosalee Wilkey

    Thank you for the recipe Amanda.I made it last night and it was amazing. I doubled the recipe but next time I’ll try to put just 1 package of dry onion soup mix cause the flavor was a little bit too strong…but it was still great.

  28. Nicole

    Love this recipe & your blog so much that I decided to feature it (& this recipe) on mine today. All credit to you of course! :) You’re great at what you do.

  29. Katie @ Won in the Oven

    I am excited about trying this for dinner tonight. I know my family will love it. I love simple recipes like these. Thanks!

  30. MelindaB

    Just tried them tonight! Yummy! Had a bit of a hard time getting the dough thin enough and so some didn’t seem to cook all the way though – going to have to invest in one of those small rollers!

  31. Desiree

    I made these for dinner and my family loved them! I am excited to try some more of your recipes. Next on my list is “The Best Chocolate Cake Ever”…

  32. Nancy

    Looks very yummy and is now on the menu for tonight… only a little taco style since the corner grocery didn’t have any onion soup mix (that I could find).

    Quick question, though – does any pizza dough work? Or does it need to be the stuff from a can? Anyone know? Couldn’t find THAT either, so bought a box of Jiffy pizza dough mix. Maybe I will have to report back my findings… :)

  33. Dee

    I just found you site and made these for dinner. Everyone loved them. Even my fussy preschooler and toodler. Thank you so much!!!! I can’t wait to try another recipe.

  34. Elizabeth

    I just made these for dinner tonight, and they were so yummy! My fiance loved them, and I will definitely be making them again.

  35. Lee Anne

    I made this tonight and it was a hit! I doubled the recipe, and did NOT double the onion mix (like you said) and to be honest….it was still a little too much. I will half that onion mix next time.

    The kids and husband liked them even with all the savoryness of that onion mix and we will make these again! I had no idea flat bread was so yummy and easy to make. I will make those again with chicken.

    Your recipes are always great. Your Cheeseburger Chicken is a weekly staple in our house!

  36. Jody

    I can’t tell you how much I love your recipes. They are all so easy and look delicious! I can’t wait to try this one.

  37. Nancy Watson

    This sounds amazing! Do you think it would work the same with the pizza dough you buy from the pizzaria or in the frozen foods area? They tend to be a little cheaper than the pillsbury. BUT, oh my, I have to try this! Thank you so much for sharing!

  38. Jen Knox

    These look sooooo good! I think this is going to be added to “the rotation” very shortly once we try it out.

    Just as an aside, if anyone wants a nice and easy dessert to go with this, just buy more bread dough and fry it exactly the same way but sprinkle it with sugar. My Italian grandmother used to take the extra dough after she made pans of homemade rolls and fried it up with sugar and called it, “Sugar Pizza” which she shortened like most words to, “Sugar Pize”! A fabulous memory and a delicious snack or dessert!

    Thanks Amanda for the yummy-looking versatile recipe!

  39. Sandy

    Flatbread + guacamole + sauteed mushrooms + chopped tomatoes and shredded lettuce + sliced black olives + cheese (pepper jack is good) + dressing (Ranch or vinaigrette) = Yummy Copycat Quizno’s Veggie Flatbread Sandwich. Sounds complicated when I see it written out like this but it’s really easy and very yummy! Thanks for the new recipe – it’s going on the menu for next week :)

  40. Martha S.

    Um, between you and The Pioneer Woman, I’m going to need to up my Zumba visits. This looks absolutely delicious and it’s on the menu for next week (along with Ree’s Sour Cream Noodle Bake).

  41. Amy @ A Little Nosh

    My husband makes something sort of similar that he calls Beef and Bean Burgers. It uses canned baked beans and sits on top of pizza crust like that. It’s one of my favorites!

  42. Angie-Bigbearswife

    Yummy! Looks great! I recently bought some of the 100 cal. flat breads and I love them! Yours looks great too!

  43. Lin

    Going to the grocery after work t, so I plan to get what I don’t have to make these for supper tonight. I imagine grilled onions, bell pepper, pineapple, maybe some zucchini with provolone cheese (& if you wanted it spicy, could add pizza sauce) would be a good for a vegetarian option. We cook both ways in our house…a dish with meat & one without. Thanks for sharing!

  44. Aseleener

    These look awesome and I can’t wait to try them. Question: Why not double the onion soup mix when doubling everything else?

    Thanks for posting.

    1. Chastity

      I also would like to know why not double the onion soup mix when doubling everything else….for this recipe and also for the Ultimate Baked Beans recipe (YUM!!).

    2. Suzanne

      I think I can answer that! I didn’t notice that note on the end of the recipe. Two nights ago I made these for dinner and doubled it and it was really really salty. There could be another reason, but that’s reason enough for me. It was still good, just too salty for my taste. My husband loved it, though!

  45. Steph@PlainChicken

    Aren’t flatbreads the best?! I’ve been experimenting also. You can do so many different things with them. I love them!!

    I haven’t made a cheeseburger flatbread yet – looks fantastic! Lasagna flatbread is on my list too.
