This looks so good! Why do I have a problem with thinking about eating any cold ground meat? I'm going to step out and try this! Thanks for the post. Love salads in a jar.

I usually take the buns off of my hamburgers anyway, so this recipe is right up my alley! I love that it's got all of the cheeseburger essentials in it. Also, who would've thought that Russian dressing, mustard, and ketchup would taste so good together? It does!
