Rice Krispie Treat Pancakes with Browned Butter Syrup.
Lets be clear, this is not something I would normally make.
And to be honest, I am not even one hundred percent sure how I feel about this salad.
I mean, it is delicious in every way possible, but cheeseburger in a salad? I am thinking it is one of those things that is so wrong it is right.
This meal came to be for one reason only.
I needed some green in my life and the boys needed some meat. They were hoping for real burgers, but I just could not handle one more full on beef dinner. I just couldn’t. As much as love a good cozy meal, I really love greens. I know that is lame, but I have always loved my vegetables.
Yah, yah, yah.
I had a lot of skeptics about this one (me included), but it kind of turned out awesome. It is everything you love about a cheeseburger, but just a tad healthier (and more colorful), in a salad.
Also, it is every girl’s dream Super Bowl food. They guys will eat it, you will not feel guilty and you get to have one or two chocolate chip cookie stuffed pretzels because you had a “balanced meal”.
Or I mean touch down!
Alright and now for a super quick little talk about the site.
Some of you may have noticed yesterday that the site is having some issues. Err, ok big issues, and I am so sorry for any inconvenience. As of right now, I am not even sure if anyone is going to be able to see this post, but if you can yay! Anyway, basically my site is crashing and I am scrambling to fix it before it completely crashes on me. It was down for hours last night. I am switching to a new host within the next day or two that will hopefully solve my issues, but until that happens the site may be going up and down. I hope it stays up, but there is a good chance things will crash again. SO sorry. I know how frustrating it is to visit a site that does not work. Thank you SO much for sticking with me. I promise this is all getting worked out. AND SOON!

Until then, let’s just drown our stresses in cheeseburger salad. And yes, there are fries involved too!
SO good! Still got my burger fix but it felt healthy! All the flavors were excellent, didn’t even miss the bun! Added chopped pickles and air-fried the fries! My husband was a big fan too!
Thank you so much for trying this Paige!! I am so glad this turned out so well for you! xTieghan
I made this with sweet potatoe French fries … absolutely amazing !!
Sounds amazing! I am so glad you liked this Nancy! Thank you!
Great salad…..I used frozen sweet fries…easy to make and oh soooo good
I pretty much put french fries on every other salad I eat, so this is one I’m excited to try!
The combination of cheeseburgers and french fries and salad all in one is just what my husband needs to indulge my salad-as-meal tendencies.
Haha! Thanks so much, Shaina!
I absolutely love the look of this salad. I love greens but I love cheeseburgers and fries. Finally – someone has combined them into one delicious looking dish!
It’s working for me now, Tieghan! Don’t worry, you’ll get there – it’s just teething problems. I had a similar problem a few weeks ago and had to change hosts (altho my site is new so it didn’t matter so much I guess 😉 but now things seem to be good.
Love these colourful photos, by the way!!
Thank you so much, Helen!
I’m all in for a salad with French fries!
Seriously, french fries on salads are the best! 🙂
Love this twist on a cheeseburger! So fun! And now maybe my husband would FINALLY be on board with eating salad 🙂
Hope your husband okay’s this one!
I think even the most unhealthy of eaters wouldn’t mind eating this salad! Great idea!
Thans Laura!! I would have to agree! 🙂
I think this is a very creative way to keep you and the kids happy. I will have to try this, it looks like my kind of salad! 🙂
Thanks so much, Amanda!! Hope you guys are doing good!
