These Loaded Burger Bowls are the perfect way to get your burger fix with tons of fresh veggies and flavor. They are healthy and filling —a great alternative to a lettuce wrap burger!
The recipe below is my favorite combination of burger toppings, but feel free to experiment with whatever toppings you like. Something along the lines of caramelized onions, sautéed mushrooms, and crumbled cheese sounds amazing to me! The options are endless!
Loaded Burger Bowls
Yield: 4 servings
Author: Chelsea Rice
1 tbsp olive oil
1 large sweet potato (approximately 8 oz), sliced into “fries”
Toss sweet potatoes with 1 tbsp olive or avocado oil and a pinch of salt and pepper. Lay flat on baking sheet.
Bake until brown and crisp on the bottom, about 15 minutes, then flip and cook until the other side is crisp, about 10 minutes.
Skillet: In a medium bowl, mix together beef and a pinch of salt and pepper. Form into four patties. Spray skillet with avocado or olive oil and heat over medium heat. Add burgers and cook until nicely seared and they have browned halfway up the sides. Flip the burgers and cook to your liking.*
Grill: Heat grill 450-500F. In a medium bowl, mix together beef and a pinch of salt and pepper. Form into four patties. Place patties on the grill and cook to your desired doneness (approximately 2-4 minutes per side).*
Start with a layer of greens in your serving bowls,
Place burger on the top.
Arrange remaining items around the burger: sweet potato fries, tomatoes, pickles, red onion, and avocado.
Drizzle with dressing of choice.
