This was crazily, unexpectedly yummy! I had my doubts. I've never been a big fast food customer. But for all my gourmet type cooking and dining, when the chips are down and I am STRESSED... I NEED a Big Mac. This totally fit the bill. I did make two slight changes. I used rehydrated onions instead of fresh, since they don't seem fresh on the burger. I also added some to the dressing. I tossed in some roughly chopped hamburger dill slices into the salad as well to cover that part of the experience. Next time, I may reheat the bread too so it is warm in the salad.
Alright number one big mac fan right here, but I have not have had one in years. I made this quite a bit more healthy and scaled it down. Heres what I did I used lean ground turkey, whole wheat bread, miracle whip, low fat cheese... yeah so I pretty much killed it lol. BUT it still tasted wonderful. To make it a but more authentic I sprays the bread with cooking spray then sprinkles them with sesame seeds to taste more like their buns and the whole salad as well. I did add more lettuce tho. By far the number one recipe I think I have come across on this site! Served these with oven baked fries, prefect healthier version of a Mc D's meal!
SO GOOD! I'll make it again with ground turkey but other than that, it was SO GOOD!
Genius! I haven't even made it yet and I KNOW i'm going to love it! -- one of those things you say "why didn't I think of THAT"""
This is my version of comfort food! We all loved it! I made it just like the recipe states and would not change a thing. We will be making this again. Thanks for sharing.
Everyone in the family loved this salad! One of my sons does not like anything with lettuce and that includes salad. The only salad he does like is taco salad. However, he loved this and asked for more! This truly does taste like a Big Mac! Thanks for sharing this wonderful salad!
Wow...this salad tastes amazingly like a Big Mac! I was skeptical at first but it really does taste like it and it is SO easy to make. I followed the suggestion of someone and I did add some dill pickles, chopped into large pieces. I ended up using toasted onion buns, instead of regular bread. I did not dress the salad, but rather served the dressing on the side and let my guests dress their own salad. I also doubled the amount of dressing, since I knew some folks like a lot of dressing on their salad and others don't. Finally, my family preferred this salad served at room temperature, better than they liked it cold. I have since shared this recipes with several friends upon request. Thanks for sharing!
I use bottled 1000 island dressing, but I don't think it really matters... I also use american cheese torn up rather than cheddar.... and I don't use bread. This is a perfect low-carb recipe without the bread! Anyway, I am embarassed to say how many times I've gone out of my way to make this. My husband even loves it!
Have been looking at this recipe for a long time. We weren't disappointed when i finally made it. My husband took a bite and said this kind of taste like a big mac. I laughed and then told him what it was called. Made exactly as stated.
This was super good......it tasted just like a big mac! I only used 5 slices of bread and didn't use the sesame seeds, otherwise made it just as posted. It was really good and we will make it again. Thanks!
