Easy Keto Big Mac Meatloaf

Share to...

I’m a massive fan of the Big Mac, and although we don’t eat out often, when we go to McDonald’s for a treat with our son, I get a Big Mac.

Let me show you how I made a copycat keto Big Mac Meatloaf. It’s as good as it sounds.

This is a Copy Cat Big Mac Meatloaf that is keto-friendly.

A Classic McDonald’s Big Mac Turned Into A Keto Big Mac Meatloaf

Today’s menu is a homemade Keto Big Mac Meatloaf, and before all of you, non-keto eaters freak out, don’t.

Hear me out because this recipe can transform into a regular Big Mac Meatloaf with a couple of changes.

Honestly, don’t be afraid of the word keto.

It just means sugar-free, gluten-free and high-fat.

Creating The Keto Big Mac Meatloaf

Last week, I had this grand idea to make a Big Mac Meatloaf for us since we like ground beef and a good burger.

Making a Keto Big Mac Meatloaf was reasonably easy with adding crushed pork rinds in breadcrumbs and allulose in place of sugar.

Our favourite pork rinds are found at Costco Canada in a massive bin for $9.99.

However, if you can’t get to Costco, many other pork rind products are available.

That’s the only difference apart from using cheese slices. As you’ll find in a traditional Big Mac, we used a mix of shredded old and medium cheddar.

If you are not Keto or Sugar-Free, you can substitute breadcrumbs, sugar and cheese slices.

You will notice in the recipe below I’ve noted each ingredient that you can substitute to make this a non-keto Big Mac Meatloaf recipe.

Big Mac Ingredients

I first needed to write down the Big Mac ingredients, so I had an idea where to start my recipe.

From eating experience, haha, I knew that a Big Mac as a meatloaf would be a hit in our house.

  • Soft three layer sesame bun
  • Big Mac Special Sauce
  • 2 thin burger patties
  • Sliced Pickles
  • Sliced Cheese (the kind most kids like for grilled cheese)
  • Shredded Iceberg lettuce
  • Diced white onions

Honestly, there’s not much to it and very simple to make a Big Mac Burger at home instead of heading to McDonald’s.

Big Mac Sauce Recipe

The tricky part was making a traditional Big Mac Sauce keto-friendly.

Big Mac sauce ingredients aren’t hard to find nor complex, making this a simple transition recipe.

This meant substituting a sugar-free sweetener instead of granulated sugar in the sweet pickle relish.

You can also buy sweet pickle relish at your grocery store in the condiment aisle or make it home.

I know some of you into canning may have a different version, which will work equally.

You can even watch a YouTube video of McDonald’s executive chef Dan Coudreaut who shares how to make a McDonald’s Big Mac at home.

What I found funny was that the secret Big Mac sauce isn’t really private and has always been available on the McDonald’s website.

Ah, the things you learn.

Remember, fast food is just that, fast, and it’s for people who don’t want to cook, don’t have the time or struggle.

There’s no reason why McDonald’s would need to hide their Big Mac recipe since they own it and everyone knows it.

Simple Keto Sweet Pickle Relish

The sugar-free recipe makes one small jar of keto sweet pickle relish that you can keep in the refrigerator for about a week.

There is no pickling or canning of this sweet pepper relish; however, if you have homemade sweet pepper relish, that works perfectly, if not better.

I’m just making the quick and easy version for those who aren’t into canning.

Ingredients For Sweet Pickle Relish

Add all ingredients into a bowl, mix well, and set aside, so the elements have time to come together.
