I’ve seen this recipe for the Big Mac Casserole floating around. It looks so good, but I’m watching the bread. Besides, if I’m choosing, I’d rather have fries! I decided to modify the recipe to make it even easier, plus no need to turn on the oven. I whipped this up in less than 15 minutes. Since I do Weight Watchers, I opted to use super lean ground beef and cheese, but that is optional!

Try out this recipe when you need to whip up a quick lunch or dinner, or just when you’re craving McDonald’s and don’t feel like leaving your house!

Big Mac Skillet Dinner

  • 1lb 94/6 ground beef
  • 1 medium onion, diced small
  • 1 cup dill pickles, chopped small
  • 5 Velveeta cheese singles
  • 1 Tbls mustard
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • Ken’s Light Thousand Island Dressing
  • Shredded iceberg lettuce (I bought the pre-shredded lettuce bag from the store!)

In a large skillet, sauté onions for three minutes with non-stick cooking spray. Add beef and pickles, and cook until beef is cooked through. Stir in mustard and salt. Turn heat to low, top with cheese slices. In a bowl or plate, place a bed of lettuce. Top with 1/4 meat mixture. Drizzle 2 Tbls thousand island dressing.

Then, all you have to do is pair it with some fries and enjoy!! Take that, McDonald’s!
