Big Mac In a Bowl

  • Author: Suzanne York


This recipe is a copy of the good ol Big Mac but a cleaned up version. This recipe will have you looking forward to lunch! 🤩
It’s a healthier version of a Big Mac… and it’s in a bowl!

🥗Don’t be put off by the number of ingredients. Basically, all you do is pour all the ingredients into a bowl and toss with a healthier (homemade) version of Thousand Island dressing.


👍It’s super filling because of all the veggies, but it won’t weigh you down. (1 serving)



4 oz (115 g) lean ground meat (beef, chicken, or turkey)
½ small onion, chopped
Salt and pepper, to taste
3 cups (150 g) shredded lettuce or coleslaw
3 dill pickle chips, chopped
2 Tbsp shredded cheddar cheese (optional)
½ large tomato, chopped

For the special sauce:
2 tbsp plain Greek yogurt
1 Tbsp mayo
½ tbsp ketchup
1 tsp mustard
½ tbsp relish
½ tsp onion powder
Salt & pepper, to taste


Heat the olive oil in a nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add the meat, onion, salt, and pepper. Cook for about 5 minutes, stirring frequently until the meat is crumbled and fully cooked through.

While it is cooking, mix all of the sauce ingredients together in a small bowl. Taste and adjust seasonings. Set aside.

Place the shredded lettuce or coleslaw in a serving bowl. Add the cooked meat mixture, along with the pickles, cheese, and tomato. Toss together, and add the sauce. Eat and enjoy! 😋
