Dr Oz: Todd Wilbur’s Top Secret Burger & Special Sauce Recipe

In this segment, Dr Oz introduced Todd Wilbur, the host of Top Secret Recipe, to unlock the secret recipes of your favorite fast foods.  Is it possible to recreate McDonald’s Big Mac at home, but to make it healthy?  According to Todd, he has a “good pallet for copying tastes.”  Todd takes those tastes and then transforms them into healthy good eats.

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) Dr Oz Healthy Big Mac Recipe
– 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.

Did Todd’s burger measure up?  Check this out.

Big Mac: 540 calories
Todd’s Top Secret Burger: 380 calories

Big Mac: 29 g of fat
Todd’s Top Secret Sauce: 12 g of fat

Now for the real test.  Patricia and Dr Oz tasted the burger.  They both loved it!  (Although Dr Oz admitted that he has never even had a regular Big Mac!)

Comments to Dr Oz: Todd Wilbur Big Mac Burger Recipe & Secret Sauce

  1. This is by far, the best “Big Mac” ever!!!Much better than the “store bought” one – probably because of the fresh ingredients. It is sooo tasty. My husband and I LOVE this burger. Thank you so much Todd and Dr. Oz!!!

  2. where the hell are the instructions for this thing? what temp do i cook the hamburger and for how long….dr.oz’s website is stupid. And, the youtube video doesnt give any directions either……

  3. Daisy, I cooked the burgers on medium-high for only 3-4 minutes…some even less. The patties are so thin that you don’t need to cook them long. Whenever juices run clear, the burger is done.

  4. thank you Tijana! my goodness why was i so irate the day I wrote this comment? anyways this is the 3rd time ive made this in a week. soooo good!

  5. daisy…. i dont think thats very healthy………. even if it is low fat.
