Any Way You Like it!

Not only is this dish ready in minutes, it’s also easy to adapt to what you have on hand or to the tastes you prefer. If you don’t have veggie burgers at home, make this with a frozen beef patty. Simply adjust the cooking time to ensure that it’s properly cooked through.

You can also top this with any type of cheese, dressing or vegetable you like. Try pickled jalapeños, for spice. Add corn, if you like things sweet. Replace the ranch dressing with Italian vinaigrette, blue cheese dressing or any type you enjoy. The possibilities are endless!
