Kelly Bland, from the UK Cooperative Extension Office, is back for another edition of What's Cookin'? here on WBKR.  This week, as we get close to Christmas, she's "plating up" a delicious an interesting dish that is one part burger and one part salad.  In fact, think of it this way.  Think of a fully dressed hamburger (one that's been run through the garden) and now, in your mind, turn it into a salad.  Get the idea?  Sound delicious?  Good. This is how you make The Burger Bowl!
