I’ve seen lot of variations of ‘big mac in a bowl’ on Slimming World forums and wanted to create something similar- a tasty way to have a burger without the bun. I made these burgers mini just because they look prettier, but overall this was a really tasty and satisfying meal.

Ingredients

  • For the burgers:
  • 120 g lean beef mince
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp onion granules
  • 1 dessert spoon tomato puree
  • salt and pepper
  • handful fresh parsley
  • Other ingredients:
  • 2 rashers bacon fat removed
  • 30 g cheddar
  • 1/2 bag fresh salad
  • 1 red pepper sliced
  • 1 sweet potato peeled and cut into fries
  • a couple pinches cayenne pepper
  • low calorie cooking spray

Instructions

  • To prep, preheat the oven to 180c and then mix the beef mince with the garlic powder, onion granules, tomato puree, parsley and salt and pepper. Shape the mixture into 3 mini burgers and set aside.
  • Pop the sweet potato fries into a microwaveable bowl, cover with clingfilm (leave a small gap) and cook in the microwave for 3 minutes.
  • Remove the sweet potato fries from the microwave and spray generously with low calorie cooking spray, season with salt and pepper and then sprinkle over the cayenne pepper.
  • Place fries onto a chip mesh or non-stick baking tray (carefully-they are quite delicate after being microwaved!) and put into the oven. put on a 15 minute timer
  • Cut each rasher of bacon into 3 pieces and fry along with your burgers. Keep an eye and keep turning them so they don't stick to the pan. Cook for about 7 minutes. Set aside the bacon when browned.
  • Pop the burgers on a baking tray (pre-sprayed with low calorie cooking spray), put the bacon on top and divide the cheese between the 3. Pop into the oven for 5 minutes to melt the cheese.
  • Assemble the salad in the bowl, add the chopped red pepper and place the cheesy burgers on top. Serve the fries alongside.
