Cheeseburger Salad

4 sesame bun tops, toasted
1 small red onion, divided
2 plum tomatoes
1 lb lean ground beef
1/2 cup finely diced dill pickles
3/4 cup ketchup
1 tbsp yellow mustard
8 cups thinly sliced romaine lettuce
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese

Preheat oven to 425. Slice bun tops into strips and arrange in a sinle layer on pan. Bake until lightly toasted. Remove and cool completely.

Cut half of the onion in half crosswise and then into thin slices. Cut tomatoes in small pieces.

Cook ground beef, breaking into small pieces. Chop remaining onion into small pieces. Finely dice pickles. Combine chopped onion, pickles, mustard and ketchup in a small bowl. Add to ground beef.

To serve, arrange lettuce on plate. Scoop beef mixture over lettuce. Top with cheese, tomatoes and sliced onion. Arrange hamburger bun croutons around plate.

*I did not use nearly as much onion because my family is not a big onion fan*
