This is a recipe that has become popular on tables for the after-church lunch at Amish gatherings: cheeseburger salad. You know, there are several advantages to this recipe. One obvious one, I would think, is that this would be like enjoying a cheeseburger without the carb-loaded bread. So the anti-carb crowd might like this recipe.
Second, for a large Amish church gathering, fixing a bunch of cheeseburgers for guests is a bit impractical, with having to buy a ton of buns, grill space, etc. This recipe, though, gives you everything a cheeseburger has – right down to the ketchup and mustard – without having to worry about shaping the meat into patties, dealing with the buns, etc. Rather a resourceful recipe. Thank you a ton to reader Suzette for testing this recipe and taking these amazing photos. This is sure to be a crowd pleaser on the Fourth or any other day!
