Next on our sweep through classic burgers from McDonalds is the Chicago Stack!
Look, this might not be classy food, but we're doing God's work here and saving you from yourself. This way you get to enjoy McDonalds and stay within your syns, which is perfect as it then means you have a few leftover for that XXL Dominos you'll be chasing this down with. Am I right?
1 wholemeal bun (1x HeB)
200g 5% beef mince
2 rashers of bacon, fat removed
2 slices of reduced-fat cheddar (approx. 40g) (1x HeA)
few gherkin slices
1 tbsp barbecue sauce (1 syn)
1 tbsp extra light mayonnaise (1 syn)
make the burgers (see notes)
cook the burgers (see notes)
meanwhile, slice the bun
spread the barbecue sauce over the bottom bun and the mayonnaise on the top
add a burger to the bottom bun, then a slice of cheese, then another burger and the other slice of cheese
top with bacon and gherkins
add the top bun
a burger press will make easy work of the burgers but if you haven't got one just roll the mince into a ball and flatten into a burger shape
you can cook the burgers however you please - we used our Tefal Optigrill on the 'burger' setting but you could use a frying pan over a high heat (spray in a little oil first), under a high grill, on a George Foreman or even on a barbecue. It's up to you!
