Healthy Big Mac Burger

I love burgers. The burgers I used to cook for my "cheat meals" were full of unhealthy ingredients, but this recipe is healthy and delicious!

This is one of my favourite recipes and I cook it weekly.

The recipe can be made in bulk and frozen for later so you can have a quick and healthy meal ready at a moment’s notice.

The recipe is simple. First, get your hands on some good quality meat: 5-8% fat grass-fed beef. Then prepare your burgers by slicing them into patties and seasoning them with garlic powder, oregano salt and pepper. Add chopped onions and a slice of bread cut into small pieces and you are ready to go.

INGREDIENTS

What you'll need to make these healthy big mac burgers:

  • Extra-lean beef mince: If you can’t find extra lean ground beef, you can substitute any other ground beef, but the stats will change
  • Sesame Burger buns: mine were about 65g each, at 170 calories. 
  • Light cheddar cheese: if you can't find light cheddar cheese, you can substitute it with a different light cheese.
  • Lettuce
  • Tomato
  • Burger sauce: if you don't have the ingredients of the sauce I made, you can substitute with a low-calorie store-bought sauce.
