Introducing … the “Big Mac” bowl! Inspired by my favorite meal at the famous fast-food chain and enhanced by a cheeseburger meal I saw on TikTok, a new easy and tasty plate will now reach your table. This is probably the most low-effort and affordable dinner I’ve introduced in a while—the perfect adjective combination for college students when looking for a recipe!

  1. Add a tablespoon of olive oil and saute diced onions on medium heat in a skillet. Remove once brown.
  2. Add your patty to the pan after seasoning with garlic and onion powder. Break it up on the skillet and wait seven minutes until cooked. Add two slices of cheese.
