So here’s a FACT: Sometimes you just want to sit down and eat a big meal.

But chances are, you do NOT want that “I can’t believe I ate the whole thing” feeling when you’re done … when you feel disgusted and all you want to do is curl up and take a nap!

Well today, I’ve got a SUPER DELICIOUS lunch (or dinner!) recipe that’ll make a HUGE amount of food that will fill you up, without leaving you feeling too full or bloated after.

Welcome to your Big Mac in a Bowl!

It’s a healthier choice because 1) it has a tasty (but lighter) dressing and 2) it’s bulked up with vegetables (your choice of shredded lettuce, coleslaw, or broccoli slaw).

Big Mac in a Bowl

(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!
