RECIPE: Primal BLT Burger with avocado and Big Mac Sauce

I’m a sucker for a McDonald’s Big Mac.

Yes, it’s terrible for you. But damn…that sauce…

The good news is that the Big Mac Sauce is extra easy to recreate yourself, and choosing quality ingredients can help you stay compliant with Keto, Primal, Whole30, Gluten Free and organic.



Big Mac Sauce

-2 tbsp Primal Kitchen Mayo

-2 tbsp Primal Kitchen Ketchup

-1/4 tsp garlic powder

-1/4 tsp onion powder

-Seasoning: Sprinkle of garlic powder, onion powder, chili powder and salt/pepper.


Step 1: In a large skillet, cook bacon.

Step 2: In the meantime, form four burger patties. Your patties should be about 1/2″ thick. Season patties with salt, pepper, and a sprinkle each of onion powder, garlic powder and chili powder.
