Big Mac in a bowl (slimming world friendly)

Oh wow this is so delicious, If you are missing your takeaway foods this is the recipe for you, It's very simple and more assembling than cooking really.  I'm sorry I can't credit the original source for this recipe its all over slimming world sites and recipe groups and could not find the person who posted it originally. If you love a Big Mac this will certainly satisfy your craving. I used 2 of the dairylea light slices as my healthy extra and used my own syn free ketchup (see previous recipe) with extra light mayo to make the thousand island dressing so for me the whole thing was only 1 syn so yay!!!

EDIT: I've been told you can use Kraft light Thousand Island dressing for 1 syn a tablespoon if you dont want to make up your own sauce.

I served some oven baked potato wedges with this too makes it a very filling tasty meal : )



Big Mac in a bowl (serves 4)

500g extra lean minced beef
1 large onion (chopped)
4 tbsp extra light mayonnaise
4 tbsp tomato ketchup
8 gherkins (chopped)
iceberg lettuce (shredded)
8 slices dairylea light cheese slices
salt and pepper

Place the minced beef and onion in a large pan and fry over a medium heat until beef is browned and the onions are soft, Season to taste with salt and pepper.

Mix the ketchup with the mayonnaise to make a burger sauce.

Layer up the dish by placing a handful of shredded lettuce in the bottom of the bowl then top with some of the minced beef mixture, Drizzle on some of the sauce and sprinkle on the chopped gherkins and top with two slices of the cheese.

If using regular ketchup with the extra light mayonnaise and the cheese slices as a healthy extra the whole dish will be just  2 syns per portion. 

Enjoy!!!
