Big Mac in a Bowl
 
Hi there. I'm sorry to start a new post about this...I have heard about Big Mac in a bowl and need to get my hands on this recipe!! Anyone have it? Sounds great and would almost feel like cheating! Thanks in advance!!

Welcome neighbour :) Here you go

* 1/2 pound raw ground beef, about 5 1/2 ounces cooked weight or 153 grams cooked *
* Salt and pepper, to taste
* 1 teaspoon minced dry onions
* 46 grams dill pickle slices or 2 dill spears, chopped, about 1 5/8 ounces
* 2 tablespoons WF Thousand Island Dressing
* 1 1/2 ounces iceberg lettuce, shredded

Brown the ground beef, drain off any fat, season with salt and pepper.. Meanwhile, soak the dry onions in a little water to rehydrate them. Put the meat in a large salad bowl and add the remaining ingredients. Toss and eat at once.

If you're impatient, make it with mustard. It still tastes amazing!

You bet! I use ground turkey in place of any ground beef recipe. The beef tastes better of course. But you can do whatever you want!

You're welcome :) I think we must be close because I'm in the Niagara Region as well, close to the Falls.

I've done it both ways, I definitely prefer it with the WF 1000 Island ;)

Has anyone made it with regular diced onions as opposed to the dehydrated/re hydrated ones? Does it make much of a flavour difference? I do something similar with taco meat on salad and a little salsa and lemon juice as dressing...soooo good.

It probably doesn't make a difference, as long as you don't add them until the end (so they don't caramelize). It's just easier for me to rehydrate the dehydrated ones, as I always have some and I don't have to cut onions. :D Rehydrating them also makes them soft, and they're smaller than I can cut manually.

IMO, you need the rehydrated onion for it to actually taste like a Big Mac. Real onions aren't going to do that.

This sounds SO good! I will have to try this sometime soon.

sandyfanny 04-28-2011 07:22 PM

This sounds great. One question: What is "WF Thousand Island" dressing. (of course I know what Thousand Island is...WF? not so much)

Oh, just popped in my head...is it Walden Farms? So, the Thousand Island is good? (assuming WF means Walden Farms) I can be picky if the substitutes taste "weird" or "chemically" - made up that word. Does anyone make her own sugar-free Thousand Island?
