Mini bacon cheeseburger-in-a-bowl with cayenne sweet potato fries

A delicious alternative to a traditional burger- served in a bowl with salad and sweet potato fries

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.


My Recipe

Serves: 1
Syns: none
Healthy Extra: A


  • For the burgers:
  • 120g 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
  • 30g cheddar
  • 1/2 bag fresh salad
  • 1 red pepper, sliced
  • 1 sweet potato, peeled and cut into fries
  • a couple pinches cayenne pepper
  • Frylight


  1. To prep, preheat the oven to 180c and then in a food processor,blend 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.
  2. Pop the sweet potato fries into a microwaveable bowl, cover with clingfilm (leave a small gap) and cook in the microwave for 3 minutes.
  3. Remove the sweet potato fries from the microwave and spray generously with Frylight, season with salt and pepper and then sprinkle over the cayenne pepper.
  4. 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
  5. 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.
  6. Pop the burgers on a baking tray (pre-sprayed with Frylight), put the bacon on top and divide the cheese between the 3. Pop into the oven for 5 minutes to melt the cheese.
  7. Assemble the salad in the bowl, add the chopped red pepper and place the cheesy burgers on top. Serve the fries alongside.
