AMY’S CHEESEBURGER BOWLS

SERVES: 4 TO 6
PREP TIME: 10 minutes
COOK TIME: 10 minutes

TOTAL TIME: 20 minutes

INGREDIENTS:

1 tablespoon olive oil or
unsalted butter
1 pound ground beef
½ teaspoon garlic powder
½ teaspoon onion powder
½ teaspoon oregano
½ teaspoon fine sea salt
4 cups chopped
romaine lettuce
1 cup shredded
cheddar cheese
Tomatoes, red onion, pickles for topping (optional)
Burger Bowl Sauce (recipe follows) for serving
Rolls for serving (optional)

BURGER BOWL SAUCE:
MAKES: ½ CUP
¼ cup ketchup
¼ cup mayonnaise
1 tablespoon pickle juice
(Yes, from a jar of pickles!)
In a medium bowl, stir together the ketchup, mayonnaise,
and pickle juice. This sauce is a great option for drizzling on
classic burger flavor.

INSTRUCTIONS:

  1. In a large skillet over medium heat, warm the olive oil. Add the beef and, using a wooden spoon, break it up into small pieces. Stir in the garlic powder, onion powder, oregano, and salt and cook, stirring occasionally, for 8 to 10 minutes, or until the meat is evenly cooked through and browned. Drain off any excess liquid.
  2. Divide the lettuce among individual bowls. Add the meat mixture, cheese, and your choice of toppings.
  3. Serve with bowl sauce, as well as rolls, if desired.

NOTES:

  • Store any leftover beef in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 5 days. Warm briefly to serve.
  • Use ground turkey, ground chicken, or cooked lentils in place of the beef.
  • Increase or decrease your choice of toppings.
  • Swap in roasted potatoes or French fries for the rolls-or serve in addition to them.
