I have to admit that I love the flavor combination a big mac possesses. But, I don’t love all of the calories and the way they prepare it, so I never eat them. Since I find myself craving them every so often, I created my own spin on the famous burger.
This one pan, 30 minute meal is so easy to make and perfect for meal prepping, those busy weeknights, impromptu lunches or dinners and the football Sunday’s. You get all of the flavors of the classic Big Mac without the guilt!
My Pretty Plate Skinny Big Mac sauce is made with a few key items, but there are 2 items you might not expect. Now, brace yourselves because I am going to let you in on my little secret: it is made with Greek Yogurt and Carrot Ketchup. Yep, you just read that right…carrot ketchup! We can all thank The New Primal for this one. I love all of their products and this carrot ketchup takes your healthy sauce game to the next level.
Now, let’s be honest, the constant struggle to find that right balance between indulging and wanting to eat healthy is an ongoing thing. Big Macs are such a nostalgic memory, but I bet you don’t find yourself going through the drive thru as often anymore (or maybe you do).
Either way, I love these messy babies because they are open faced, I ditched that top bun over here… because who needs it anyway!? The sauce contains healthy ingredients, plus all of the toppings and inclusions themselves are 90% vegetables with the exception of the cheese. You bet I will be eating this on repeat all football season long.
