IMG 9155.jpg

Ingredients

1 lb. lean ground beef

1 Tbsp steak seasoning (we like Montreal)

1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce

Lettuce of choice (this salad had romaine, spinach and arugula) chopped or torn in bite size pieces

1 onion sliced in rings

1 cup cherry tomatoes chopped in half (or any chopped tomato)

Optional toppings - pickles, croutons, avocado, green onion, jalapenos, bacon bits

Sliced cheese

Dressing of choice – my recipe follows the directions

Directions

Light grill if you plan to grill the burgers.

Mix lettuce, onions, and tomatoes in a large bowl.

Mix steak seasoning and Worcestershire sauce into the ground beef and pat out thin burgers.

Grill or pan fry burgers to desired doneness and top with cheese.

Fill dinner plates with lettuce mixture, add dressing of choice, and top with a burger. Add a little more onion on top, maybe a pickle, and any optional topping.

Optional toppings include: croutons, avocado, green onions, jalapenos, bacon bits – let your imagination run wild!

Balsamic Dressing

To a small jar with a lid add 3 Tbsp Balsamic Vinegar, 2 Tbsp olive oil, one minced clove garlic, a tsp of sugar and a pinch of salt. I also added 1 tsp of lemon pepper and ½ tsp of oregano. Shake it up!
