Deluxe Cheeseburger Salad

I am always up for trying new recipes so here is one I came across in the Spring/Summer 2008 Season's Best- The Pampered Chef cookbook: Deluxe Cheeseburger Salad 

4 sesame seed hamburger bun tops
1 small red onion divided (I will not be using this-allergic to onions)
2 plum tomatoes
3/4 lb 95% 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

What to do:
1. preheat oven 425- slice bun tops into 1/4 inch strips and bake 8-10 minutes
2. slice onions and cut tomatoes into quarters lengthwise and slice crosswise
3. cook ground beef until no longer pink, breaking it into crumbs
4. in a bowl combine onion, pickles, ketchup, and mustard- add the cooked beef to the bowl and mix well
5. To serve- arrange the lettuce on a large platter. Spoon the beef mixture over lettuce. Top with cheese, tomatoes, and sliced onion. Arrange the hamburger buns around the edge of the platter. Serve immediately.
