Dr Oz: Big Mac Recipe Made Healthy
Dr Oz introduced Patricia, an audience member, who tried to cook healthy for herself and her son. The problem arises when she becomes busy and relies on fast food. Patricia stated that she loved the greasy, fattening, Big Mac. (Who doesn’t?) Dr Oz issued a challenge to Todd: make Patricia’s favorite fast food burger healthy. Could he do it? You be the judge. Try the recipe at home.
Dr Oz: Todd Wilbur Burger Recipe
- ½ lb extra lean ground beef (8 oz)
- 1 ½ whole wheat buns
- 1 tsp chopped onions
- ½ cup romaine lettuce
- Low- fat American cheese
- Dill pickle
- Olive oil
- Seasonings to taste (dash of salt and pepper)
Dr Oz: Todd Wilbur Secret Sauce Recipe
- ½ tbsp low-fat French dressing
- 1/8 cup low fat mayo
- 1 tsp sweet pickle relish
- ¾ tsp minced white onion
- 1/4 tsp white vinegar
- Dash of salt
Go ahead and build your double decker burger. The lower calorie bun only contains 80 calories per bun. Take the sauce and spread around on the bottom half of the bun. Stick on your onion, put on your lettuce, and then place on the pickle, and cheese. Put on the patties and then stack the burger. Put on the top and Voila! You’ve created your very own healthy Big Mac.
