While I enjoy me a good salad, I enjoy me a good burger more. So I decided for my Burger Month submission (here is mine from last year…we still make all the time) that I would combine my favorite salad and a burger. Enter the Cobb Salad Burger. I thought about making it a chicken burger to make it slightly more authentic…except, I hate chicken burgers. 🙂
As for the burger, I’ll let the photos speak for themselves.
Burger Month is giving away quite few fun giveaways so be to enter!
