Hamburger Patties
  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 2-4 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 Tablespoon onion powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/2 Tablespoon black pepper
Caramalized Onions
  • 3 Tablespoons butter
  • 1 small onion roughly chopped
Big Mac Salad
  • 1 head romaine lettuce
  • 4 over easy cooked eggs
  • low carb thousand island dressing optional
  • 1 cup cheddar cheese
  • 1 small avocado
  • 4 small dill pickles sliced
  1. In a bowl mix together ground beef, garlic, onion powder, sea salt and black pepper. Make 4 hamburger patties out of mixture. Make sure to flatten the patties well and we like to press into the center with our thumbs to help them stay flat even more. Season with additional salt and pepper, if desired.

  2. In a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add butter, allow it to melt before adding the onions. Stir and continue on medium to medium high heat for 5-8 minutes until onions are tender and begin to turn a caramelized brown. Remove onions from pan and set aside. 

  3. Add hamburger patties to same skillet over medium heat. Cook for 3-5 minutes, flip the burgers and cook another 3-5 minutes or until they reach your desired cooked center. Set burgers aside. NOTE* Remember they will continue to cook once you remove them from the heat.  

  4. Construct your big mac salad. Add romaine lettuce, egg, hamburger patty, cheese, avocado, dill pickles and any dressing/condiments that sounds good to you! See above recipe for some low carb options.
