Bacon Blueberry Blue Cheese Burger Salad

If you’ve grown tired of  eating your burger on a bun, this burger placed over fresh mixed greens and topped with bacon, blueberries, and blue cheese is just the change you need!


Bacon, blueberries, and blue cheese three of my favorite foods!  Blueberries are in season for just a smidge longer so I am using them in everything!  Now I know not everyone loves fruit on their salad, no problem just leave off the berries if that’s the case.

Do you prefer your salad savory or sweet?

Next question.  Are you a baker or a non-baker?

I would bet my bottom dollar your answer to the first question is directly connected to whether you are a baker or not.

Whatcha think?

I love burger salads.  I’m all about the toppings with my burger anyway.  When I construct my burger it’s such a conglomeration of condiments, cheese, and toppings I have to dig in with a knife and fork anyway…might has well leave off the bread and dig right in.

IMG_8325Burger patties, make them how you like them.  I simply pat 1/4 pound of ground beef into a patty season it with Lawry’s and grill them up medium well.


IMG_8329Bacon cooked crisp, a nice stinky creamy blue cheese, blueberries washed, green onion sliced thin, and don’t forget the pecans!


IMG_8331My refrigerator is never with out mixed greens or romaine lettuce, either one will work perfectly for this salad.


Ribbet collageOh golly I’m wanting this salad right now… think 10:44pm on a Tuesday night is too late to fire up the grill?


IMG_8347Do you know how good blueberries are for you?  Eat your blueberries people!




Well no sa-laad is complete with out a simple vinaigrette.  Simple does not mean with out flavor!  This rosemary balsamic vinaigrette packs a punch!


There you have it folks your dinner dilemma is solved!  What?  Your kids would never eat this you say…well they might if you made them, but if you’re not into watching your kid squirm over a delicious burger salad, no worries just make them a normal ol’ everyday hamburglar with cheese and catsup!



Don't forget to answer the questions....Sweet or Savory?  Baker or Non-baker?

    I always have meat leftover from grilling out on the weekends & we always have leftover turkey bacon from our big breakfast on Saturdays…. LOVE this idea bc it makes the perfect lunch for moi! So going to make this come Monday. Would not have thought to use this combination (though I’m not a blue cheese girl – I know – crazy… but will use Feta). 🙂

      Yes perfect! This is a great way to use left overs. Feta or chevre …oooh so good. No apologies for not like blue cheese that just means there’s more for me ; D

    This sounds like one of those…. what we in our family call…. “Grossely Awesome” things….
    It doesn’t work (for me) with the ingredients individually, but put ’em together and I think I just might not be able to resist it! I might have to try it!

    ….. maybe a cook out this weekend…..
