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 if you’re not, feel free to go full fat!

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 in a skillet sprayed 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 lite thousand island dressing (3SP).

For those doing Weight Watchers, it’s 4SP for the meat mixture (1/4 of the pan); 11SP for entire meal served with 2 Tbls Ken’s Light Thousand Island Dressing and 3oz Alexia House Cut Fries.
