Bacon Cheeseburger Salad - Easy Low Carb

This evening I made a quick and delicious meal using a package of organic ground beef I picked up at Costco this past weekend. I formed it into 3 thick burgers after mixing it with a squeeze of "no HFCS" ketchup and yellow mustard, a generous sprinkle of McCormick's Chipotle Roasted Garlic Seasoning, and a sliced green spring onion. I heated a bit of coconut oil in my 10-inch Lodge cast iron pan and placed the patties into the skillet and cooked them until medium-well. I topped them with strips of sliced sharp white cheddar cheese and crispy bacon and placed the burgers on a bed of fresh baby romaine lettuce and scattered a few slices of carrot and diced tomato on top. It was so delicious. We really enjoyed it and I have one burger leftover for tomorrow's lunch! I snapped a few photos below and included the easy peasy recipe. Enjoy!

Bacon Cheeseburger Salad


1-1/3 pounds ground beef (I used 85% organic ground beef)
1 rounded tablespoon ketchup
2 tablespoons yellow prepared mustard
1/2 teaspoon McCormick's Grill Mates Chipotle & Roasted Garlic Seasoning (or substitute salt and pepper to taste)
1 green spring onion, sliced (or finely diced regular onions to taste)
1 tablespoon coconut oil
6 strips crisp cooked bacon
3 slices sharp cheddar cheese
6 cups chopped romaine lettuce
1 medium tomato, diced
1 small carrot, thinly sliced


In a medium bowl, combine ground beef, ketchup, mustard, chipotle seasoning, and onions. Form mixture into 3 equal sized patties, about 1-inch thick. Heat oil over medium-high heat in a heavy 10-inch skillet. Cook patties to desired doneness, about 5 to 7 minutes per side. Top with cheese and bacon. Place patties on top of lettuce in large shallow bowls. Scatter tomatoes and carrots on top.

This looks fantastic! Sometimes I'll do something similar and make a simple dressing by mixing a little mayo and ketchup and then thinning it with a little white vinegar.
