The burger craving comes on hard in the Summer. I love gourmet burgers with strange toppings and flavors, but in the Summer, there is nothing like a juicy grilled burger with the classic all American toppings.
Because I really hate soggy bread, I actually really like burgers without buns. I can pile on toppings and not worry about everything falling apart and spilling onto my plate. Bonus points for skipping out on the extra carbs and making it healthier.
We are LOVING burger bowls this Summer. They are so simple to put together and I almost always have everything on hand. Pickle drizzled on top of it all is a necessary step...it's strange but good! This is far from a recipe and more of a here's what you need and just pile it all together type of post. Enjoy!
Lean ground beef burgers- grilled inside or out
Iceberg lettuce, chopped
Hamburger dill pickles with some juice reserved
Salt + pepper
I start with my bowls and fill with a pile of chopped iceberg lettuce. Layer on sliced tomatoes, pickles and even onions or mushrooms- whatever else sounds tasty to you! Finish with a warm burger and drizzle it all with a little pickle juice. Add mustard and ketchup and devour it all! I also sometimes serve mine with oven roasted potatoes.
