BETTER THAN A BIG MAC

INGREDIENTS

The Burger

  • 1.25 lbs 93% lean ground beef
  • 1/2 red bell pepper, finely chopped
  • 1/2 sweet red onion, finely chopped
  • 2 Tbsp dill pickle relish
  • 1 Tbsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 tsp Emeril’s Original Essence (or sea salt & pepper if you do not have it)

The “Secret” Sauce

  • 2 Tbsp Fat Free or Low-Fat Mayo
  • 1 Tbsp ketchup
  • 1 tsp yellow mustard
  • 1/2 tsp hot sauce, optional
  • 1 Tbsp dill pickle relish

Toppings

  • 4 oz reduced fat sharp cheddar cheese, divided
  • Lettuce, tomato, onion, pickles
  • Sara Lee Honey Wheat Thin Buns (they don’t taste “diety” at all)

INSTRUCTIONS

1.  Combine the ingredients to make the burger (beef through Emeril’s Original Essence).  Divide into 4 large meatballs and flatten into patties making a small dent in the middle.

2.  Grill over medium high heat flipping until cooked through, about 10 minutes per side.  Top with cheese and cook for 2 minutes until cheese is melted.

3.  Build your Big Mac by starting with a bun, then, topping with 1 Tbsp of the secret sauce, any toppings you are using and the burger.  Dig in!
