A New Approach to the Classic Big Mac

In The Kitchen with Dionne Z.

If you like Big Macs, this recipe from Dionne Z. is perfect for you. But if you make it, don’t expect a traditional look of a Big Mac – “two all-beef patties, special sauce, lettuce, cheese, pickles, onions, and a sesame seed bun.” However, this recipe will deliver the same yummy Big Mac flavor in a unique presentation and with fewer calories.

Dionne (who is a dental assistant at Personal Care Dentistry when she isn’t in the kitchen whipping up yummy dishes) says this is a great dish to take to Fall potlucks or for a weekend football watching party at your home. Or just make a pan of them and you’ll have delicious leftovers for you and your family.
