HG's Hungry Mac 'Bella Stack Burger

Baby Got Stack!

We FINALLY tackled the Big Mac! And by that we mean we took it on and made it over in typical HG fashion. At no point did any HG employees physically wrestle a Big Mac to the ground... that we know of. Enough silliness -- on to the recipe!

1 1/2 tbsp. fat-free Thousand Island dressing
1/8 tsp. granulated sugar
1/8 tsp. white wine vinegar
1 tsp. finely minced onion or 1/2 tsp. dried minced onion

2 portabella mushroom caps
1 1/2 small light hamburger buns (1 top and 2 bottoms), or HG Alternative!
1/4 cup shredded lettuce, divided
1 slice fat-free American cheese
1 tbsp. diced onion, divided
3 hamburger dill pickle chips

To make the sauce, combine dressing, sugar, and vinegar in a small bowl. Mix well. Stir in minced onion and set aside.

Bring a large skillet sprayed with nonstick spray to medium-high heat on the stove. Place mushroom caps side by side in the skillet, rounded sides down. Cover and cook until soft, about 4 minutes per side.

Place one bun bottom on a plate, and spread with half of the sauce. Top with half of the lettuce (2 tbsp.), followed by the cheese slice. Place one cooked mushroom cap on top, and sprinkle with half of the diced onion (1/2 tbsp.).

Spread remaining half of the sauce on the other bun bottom, and place it on the sandwich, sauce side up. Top with pickle chips and the remaining 2 tbsp. lettuce. Top with the remaining mushroom cap and remaining 1/2 tbsp. onion.

Add the bun top and open wide!
