If you’re like me, you load up your grill with food to last for days. I always feel like a waste if I’m not crowding it with all kinds of goodies, don’t you? I asked that question on my Facebook page and most people tend to agree.

 

It’s a given to have cookout leftovers when COOKOUT SEASON is in high gear.  Too much is always better than not enough when it comes to food. Cook once eat all week is such an easy solution for busy people.  Who doesn’t want to spend more time with family and friends instead of cooking every day, amirite?

 

In just a few minutes you’ll have a delightful lunch at home or on the go. I like to add crumbled bacon and chopped pickles to this cheeseburger salad too or add whatever you usually put on your BURGER. The more the merrier.

 

If you are wanting a little bit more protein and fat in this salad, add in some leftover chicken pieces and top with sliced avocado. Ta-da!  You’ll be amazed at how substantial this meal is.

 

YOUR TUMMY WILL BE SO HAPPY!

WHAT TO DO WITH LEFTOVER BURGERS?

 

When you’re left with an abundance of burgers (always true after the Fourth of July celebration), you can either freeze them or eat them for days. Besides this cheeseburger salad, here are 10 more uses for leftover cooked hamburgers:

 

  1. Crumble and use in tacos or quesadilla.
  2. Put them on a baguette with grilled onions, pepperoncini, and top with marinara and melted provolone cheese – like a meatball sub.
  3. Crumble the hamburger up and heat it in spaghetti sauce. Serve over spaghetti.
  4. Mix crumbled hamburger with sautéed onion, green pepper, cooked rice, and tomato sauce and use to stuff green peppers. Top with shredded cheese, cover and bake until peppers are tender.
  5. Crumble up and mix with sloppy joe sauce.
  6. Crumble and use as a topping on homemade pizza.
  7. Turn them into Salisbury Steak: top leftover beef patties with a gravy made from 3 tablespoons flour, 2 tablespoons butter, 1 cup beef broth, 1 sliced onion, 1 package fresh sliced mushrooms, and 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce.
  8. Crumble the burgers and add to chili.
  9. Use it to make a Shepherd’s pie.
  10. Make a cheeseburger omelet.

    We never have leftover burgers but I have made a first-over hamburger salad. Works just as good and quite easy, especially on a hot summer night. – Margy
