I wanted a burger, but not in a bun. I’m not really sure why, I guess I was just craving something different. And I really wanted a Big Mac (yep, I did). But I would never order one. It’s just too many calories. So I sort of created this bunless-burger-Big-Mac-thing to satisfy my cravings.
I love fillo dough and I wanted this to feel like an appetizer. So here you have it, Cheeseburger Fillo Squares with Copycat Big Mac Sauce. And the copycat sauce is a copy of the copycat recipe…had to do it my way…with my own ingredients. I think it’s better than the original. But you can decide for yourself.
At first I was a little worried about doing this recipe and baking lettuce in the oven, but it turned out great. It’s just one of those dishes you have to serve right away. You cannot let it sit and get cold etc. It’s just not the same.
The idea is to build up the fillo dough with cheese between the layers. The American cheese addition at the end makes it really taste like a Big Mac. Other fancy cheese did not have the same effect.
I used a squeeze bottle to drizzle on the Big Mac Sauce before cutting it into squares with a pizza cutter.
The perfect Super Bowl snack!
