Big Mac Taco, gluten-free
These Big Mac Tacos are so much fun to make, delicious, and taste very close to the real thing!
Beef mince is pressed onto a gluten-free tortilla, then placed beef side down onto a pan. Once cooked, the tortilla is flipped, and cheese slices are added, which melt almost immediately. Finally, the tortilla is removed from the pan, and topped with fresh lettuce, pickles, and an almost identical Big Mac Sauce. All that is needed is to take that first heavenly bite and you'll be addicted.
If you love Big Macs, tacos, and smashed burgers then this is going to make you smile. If you're a coeliac and can't eat Maccas, well this is really going to make you happy! It is the perfect way to enjoy all the flavours a Big Mac has to offer, minus the gluten, minus the sugar load, and minus the unhealthy fats.
Watch How to Make It
Preheat the pan
The beef is thin and needs to be cooked fast and over high heat, so preheating the pan will create the perfect juicy patty without drying it out.
Keeping them warm
As you make all the tacos, it's a great idea to keep them warm in the oven under low heat, about 100C fan forced.
Use melting cheese
Burger cheese or American cheddar slices is perfect as it melts fast.
