Fast Friday Cheeseburger Bowls

Fast Friday Cheeseburger Bowls

I’m really kicking myself for how this photo turned out during my video shoot…

I grated the cheese instead of slicing it so it over-melted. Which means you can’t really see the cheesy, oozy goodness. But trust me. It’s there.

These burger bowls are a big big favourite in our house on a Friday night. I love them because they’re so quick and it all just cooks in one pan – so minimal cleanup.

My Irishman loves the combo of the meaty beef and the buttery roast zucchini.

The boys love them because I serve theirs in soft butter brioche burger buns. #everyonehappy

And I must tell you – the roast zucchini with the cheese on it is so so good. Definitely my favourite part!
