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!

4 large hamburgers (grilled, fried, however you prepare them)
8 large pieces of lettuce
1 large tomato, sliced

12 pieces cooked bacon
2 hardboiled eggs, chopped finely
1/3 cup mayo
6 TBSP blue cheese crumbles

1 TBSP fresh lemon juice
3⁄4 tsp. dry mustard
1⁄2 tsp. Worcestershire
1⁄4 tsp. granulated sugar
1 clove garlic, minced
salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
For the mayo:
Mix the mayo, blue cheese crumbles, and chopped egg until fully combined in a small bowl. Set aside until ready to assemble.
For the dressing:
Combine the canola oil, olive oil, vinegar, lemon juice, mustard, Worcestershire, sugar, and garlic in a blender.
Purée the ingredients to make a smooth dressing and season with salt and pepper.
Place bun bottom on a plate.
Add your lettuce, avocado, tomato to the bottom.
Once your burgers have been cooked, dip them into the red vinegar dressing, twice.
Set dipped burger on top of the tomato.
Place bacon on top of the burger.
Spread the mayo mixture on the top bun and place on top of the burger.
You of course can build it however you like. Add more of whatever you like. Omit anything you don’t like.
I’ve actually never made a burger, but your looks delish!

I love making chorizo burgers with a mix of chorizo and beef!
I’m kinda boring in my burger creations (mostly because my husband’s the cook, and I’m the baker), but I do so love the Cabot extra sharp white cheddar, with a medium-well burger, and a pretzel bun. Yum!
Your burger looks extremely mouthwatering!

I love sauteed mushrooms and onions on my burger
I love avocado or guac on a burger and making my own burger buns.

It’s one I found on the Internet, from Ezra Pound Cake, called “Rattlesnake Slider”. Loved it then, loved it since, love it still.

I do love a good Cobb salad… this may have to fall into the dinner lineup soon.
Stephanie K. says
I haven’t actually tried one myself yet, but my dad called and mentioned that he was making burgers and adding bacon in when he grinds the meat. YES. Makes me wish I didn’t live 500 miles from home 😉
I love the flavors of cobb salad but never thought to put them on a burger! We’ll definitely have to try these this week.

Erin @ The Spiffy Cookie says
I love it when you turn healthier things into delicious less healthy things such as this burger. Burgers always win over salads.
Carrie M. says
Nothing epic, but I do like variety. Especially if someone else makes it!
I like blue cheese and bacon on my burger.
We make these lamb burgers with cucumber and homemade remoulade on english muffins. They are delicious!
Anne Weber-Falk says
Simple is best for me. Hot off the grill, medium, fluffy bun, mayo, ketchup, leaf lettuce, tomato and red onion rings. Epic.
Sj Dc says

Bacon, guacamole and cheddar on a burger. Yum! Thanks for the giveaway.
Karen Palmer says
Well, THAT looks like every kind of delicious! I love a Cobb Salad and love a burger – why not enjoy them together, indeed!
Debbie G says
OMG…this looks too yummy.
A couple of years ago I was on a stuffed burger kick, the best creation was beef burger with crumbled bacon mixed in, stuffed with a slice of sharp cheddar topped with caramelized onions and barbecue sauce. Man… now I’m starving!
That dressing recipe sounds divine. I love a good Cobb Salad.
my epic burger includes both avocado and bacon and a creamy sauce!
looks so yummy
