Cheeseburger Salad

I saw this recipe either on Rachael Ray or on for Cheeseburger salad a  few years ago.  I have adapted it to our own taste. Geez Rachael is a genius! Rach made hers with a mustard style dressing but I prefer to let my family choose their own.  Here's how I made it today. I made them on a Hamilton Beach indoor grill and they cook up in about 7 minutes.

1/2 lb ground beef (makes 8 mini cheeseburgers)
1 handful of bacon bits (I like Oscar Meyer natural bacon bits)
salt and pepper
1 head lettuce
8-10 pickles diced
2 Roma tomatoes diced
2 carrots sliced into coins
dressing of your choice
1 slice of Kraft American cheese divided

Combine the ground beef and bacon bits and form into small patties. Season with salt and pepper. Place on a indoor grill for 7 minutes or until cooked through. In the last minute place divided cheese onto each of the hamburgers.  Serve ontop of lettuce and add the toppings you enjoy. (serves 4)
