Ingredients For Cheeseburger Bowl Recipe:

Here are the ingredients for cheeseburger bowls.

Lean Ground Beef: I like to use a lean ground beef. You can also substitute with ground turkey.

Montreal Steak Seasoning: I use this seasoning to flavor my beef. You can use any seasoning you like for burgers like garlic powder, kosher salt and black pepper.

Romaine Lettuce: Any lettuce will do. This adds delicious texture and bright colors. You can also use shredded iceberg lettuce.

Cheddar Cheese: I like to use shredded cheddar cheese but you can also use pepper jack or any cheese you prefer.

Bacon: I like to use applewood smoked bacon.

Dill Pickles: Pickles add a delicious salty flavor. You can us any pickles you prefer.

Tomatoes: Add a great color. You can use cherry tomatoes, heirloom tomatoes or vine ripen tomatoes.

Red Onion: If you don’t love the flavor of raw red onion you can also use caramelized onion or grilled onions.

Sauce of Choice: I love Chick Fil A sauce for my burger bowls. You can also top these bowls with ketchup, mustard, BBQ sauce or thousand island dressing for more of a cheeseburger salad.

Optional Toppings: This recipe is meant to be customized so add your favorite toppings of choice. Some additional ideas are avocado, sautéed mushrooms, onion rings, or blue cheese.
