Hamburger Salad: Made 2 Ways Recipe

This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of McCain Foods. The opinions and text are all mine. #MyMcCainPotatoes #CollectiveBias With spring finally here, all I can think about is how we are even closer to the summer. Warmer weather also means time for getting together with family and friends for grilling out and watching whatever sports events that are on the schedule! Hamburgers and french fries have always been on our menu when it comes to these type of gatherings. A twist to the typical hamburger menu item. Time for a twist on the basic hamburger menu item, especially for those who are on a healthier diet kick. I bring to everyone a hamburger salad made 2 different ways with McCain® potato products ! One way is without all the added toppings and spicy dressing, but with a topping of McCain® Smiles® Mashed Potato Fries and Extra Crispy Crinkle Fries. The perfect salad for all those younger children. The second way is for those who love that extra spiciness, topped with a spicy salad dressing and a shredded pepper jack cheese. Can’t forget to mention the McCain® Seasoned Curly Fries that add that crispy bite to this delicious hamburger salad. Don’t have to be a salad lover. You don’t have to love salads to enjoy this recipe. I look at this recipe made 2 ways as basically a deconstructed hamburger with the lettuce, tomato, onion, cheese and of course those McCain® Smile, Curly, and Extra Crunchy Fries.

Mix well with your hands until all is incorporated. Add in breadcrumbs. Mix well and then form the hamburger patties. You can have a smaller sized patty (about 31/2″-4″ across, 1″ thick) for the kid version, a larger sized patty (about 5″ across and 1″-2″ thick) for the adult version. Note that the patties will shrink some during cooking when using 80/20 ground beef. Cook these patties via grill or in a cast iron skillet. Cook patties 5 minutes on one side, then flip and continue to cook for another 5 minutes. Place patties on a paper towel-lined plate while they cool. Salad Cook the McCain® potato products by heating up a few inches of oil to 300 degrees F. In 3-4 batches, fry the potatoes for about 4 to 5 minutes, until they are becoming more golden. Remove each batch from the oil and drain them on a paper towel-lined plate or tray. If salad mixes are not pre-washed, make sure to do so before eating. Place serving size amounts (about 1 1/2-2 cups for kid version and 3-4 cups for adult version) in bowls or plates and set aside. Buttered lettuce: for kid version and Spring Mix: for adult version Prep the tomato and onion by chopping up; set to the side. Prepare the dressings. For the each dressing, add the ingredients and mix well. Set to the side. Once the hamburger patties and the potato products have cooled down enough to eat, begin to construct the salads. For the kid version, each bed of buttered lettuce will be topped with a cut-up hamburger patty, shredded mild cheddar cheese, diced tomatoes, McCain® Smiles® Mashed Potato Shapes and McCain® Extra Crispy Crinkle Fries, and the ketchup-mayonnaise dressing. For the Adult Version Hamburger Salad: each bed of spring mix lettuce will be topped with 1-2 hamburger patties, shredded pepper jack cheese, diced tomatoes, diced onion, McCain® Seasoned Curly Fries and the Sriracha-mayonnaise dressing.
