Tonight I had planned on making chicken cordon bleu burgers because I ran out of chicken breasts, but had some ground chicken. Then, I realized I didn't have buns, so I made baked potatoes instead and did bunless burgers. I found this pear champagne viniagrette at Trader Joes, and I thought it would be great with spinach. I also threw in some more pear, and some diced brie since I had some left over. It was so delicious! This made 3 burgers, 2 for us for dinner, and one for JJ's lunch tomorrow!
