I know I told you guys that I gave up fast food – it has been almost 7 months!! If you’ve seen Food Inc. you would too! However that doesn’t mean I deprive myself, instead of falling off the wagon and finding myself in the drive-through line, I think of a way I can make it at home.

Lately, I have been in the mood for a McDonald’s Big Mac. I haven’t been able to get them out of my head ever since I saw my husband eating one right in front of my face. Luckily I was not feeling well, or else I would have thrown him an elbow and snatched it out of his hand before he knew what hit him!

So here is my version of a not-as-big Big Mac but in slider form. Haileigh named it herself, the Mini Mac Slider.

Add a few patties at a time to a grill pan preheated to medium/ medium high heat… adjust the heat during cooking.

Cook the patties 3-5 minutes per side.

Gather all the typical toppings; buns, cheese, lettuce, pickles and sauce.

Start with the Colby jack. 3 slices to be exact. Cut in half on a diagonal.

Cut in half again to form 12 triangles!!

You can also toast your buns, I like mine toasted and so does my girls! I place the slider buns on a baking sheet under my broiler for about 2 minutes.

Schmear some of the special sauce on the inside of the top bun…

Top the bottom toasty bun with a burger patty and a slice of Colby.

Then top with pickle slices and sliced iceberg lettuce.

And they look like this… a little messy… yet tasty!

Let me just tell you, my youngest won’t touch pickles or onions and she had no idea they were there!! She gobbled them up!
