Start by preheating the grill on high. Submerge wooden skewers in warm water. Separate leaves of romaine.

In a large bowl combine onion, ketchup, ground beef, Cheddar cheese, salt, and pepper. Mix until all ingredients come together. Divide meat into 8 portions and form each into a log around 1 skewer.

Place skewers on the hot grill and cook for 8 minutes or until cooked through, rolling around the grill every few minutes.*

Serve each skewer on a romaine lettuce leaf topped with sliced tomato and thousand island dressing.

*For food safety, cook ground beef to an internal temperature of 160°F.
