Recipe: Cheese Burger Salad Recipe

We hope its obvious by now how much we love a mash up of fresh food, frozen shortcuts, and little bit of fun at the family table. When Meghan mentioned this in our listeners group as part of her meal plan recently and so many people asked for the recipe.

This recipe might be a little more effort than cooking burgers, but you can shortcut the prep by using your favorite bagged salad (Meghan recommends the Taylor Farm’s Dill Pickle Chopped Salad) or you can skip shaping the patties and just brown the beef on the stovetop.

Cheese Burger Salad Recipe


  • Author: Meghan Splawn
  • Prep Time: 15 minutes
  • Cook Time: 25 minutes
  • Total Time: 40 minutes
  • Yield: 6 servings 1x

Ingredients

Scale

1 (24 ounce) bag frozen french fries 

1 1/2 pounds ground beef 

1 teaspoon kosher salt

1 teaspoon onion powder

1 cup shredded cheddar cheese

4 cups chopped romaine, washed and dried 

1 cup cherry tomatoes, quartered 

1/2 small red onion thinly sliced 

1/2 english cucumber, chopped 

1/4 cup breadcrumbs or 1/2 cup croutons, crushed 

Special sauce dressing, recipe follows 


Instructions

Heat the oven to 425 degrees F and bake the frozen french fries according to the package directions.

Meanwhile, season the ground beef with kosher salt and onion powder in a small mixing bowl. Heat a large cast iron or non stick skillet over medium heat. Working in batches of 6 to 8, make mini burger patties by scooping the ground beef into golf ball sized portions and set them in the skillet. Pretty the patties into the skillet and cook for 2 to 3 minutes each side until browned. Moved the cooked patties to a baking sheet and sprinkle with the cheese. Bake for 5 minutes to cook through and melt the cheese.

While the burgers are cooking, combine the romaine, tomatoes, cucumbers, onions, and breadcrumbs in a large bowl. Top with chopped french fries, the mini burger patties, and serve with the special sauce dressing.
