Low-Carb Big Macs

These Low Carb Big Mac Bites are a keto recipe for mini bunless burgers that make a great low carb appetizer or game day food that everyone will love!

I’ll be the first to admit it, I’m kind of obsessed with Big Mac sauce. What can I say? That special sauce is magical! These easy Low Carb Big Mac Bites were inspired by the Low Carb Big Mac Bowl I made recently. You know Melinda and I love bite size appetizers and who doesn’t like food-on-a-stick at a party? Say hello to these awesome mini bunless burgers served with a creamy, tangy special sauce :).

INGREDIENTS

FOR THE SAUCE
1/2 c. mayonnaise
2 tbsp. yellow mustard
1 tbsp. ketchup
1 tbsp. pickle relish
2 tsp. apple cider vinegar
1/2 tsp. garlic powder
1/2 tsp. onion powder
1/4 tsp. paprika
1/4 tsp. kosher salt
1 lb. ground beef
Kosher salt
Freshly ground black pepper
2 tbsp. butter
4 slices American cheese
12 butterhead lettuce leaves
Sliced tomato

DIRECTIONS

Make sauce: In a medium bowl, whisk together mayonnaise, yellow mustard, ketchup, pickle relish, apple cider vinegar, garlic powder, onion powder, paprika, and salt.
Make burgers: Form ground beef into 4 patties; season both sides with salt and pepper. In a large skillet over medium-high heat, melt butter. Add patties and cook until burgers are seared on the bottom, about 4 minutes. Flip burgers and cook until cooked through to your liking (about 4 minutes for medium), adding cheese during the last minute of cooking.
Assemble burgers: Place cheeseburgers on top of large lettuce leaves and drizzle with special sauce. Top with sliced tomato and another piece of lettuce.
