I had no clue what to call this recipe! If I called it a Big Mac Tortilla pie, that just sounded off to me, and maybe not even appetizing. Before I get into the recipe, let me give you a little back story. From about the age of 12 to 17 I was a HUGE Big Mac fan. It was myself and sisters weekly treat to McDonald’s. Today I will be sharing TWO versions of this recipe. One also for the Air Fryer. You will see in the recipe down below. Same method, different cooking time. We are calling this recipe the Big Mac attack made in the Ninja Foodi.
My Mom was a single Mother raising two daughters and working hard to support us. A Big Mac and stop at McDonald’s was truly a big deal for us. We would sit in the car, listen to music and eat our burgers, fries and coke. It really is the little things in life! Today I am sharing how I created my own version. First you need

Big Mac made in the Ninja Foodi
Of course mine is NOT two whole beef patties, special sauce, lettuce cheese, pickle onion on a sesame seed bun! It has all the basis of a Big Mac, and truly the taste. I made my version healthier though. Recently on Facebook there was a post going around about a Big Mac salad. That is what inspired me to put my own twist on the Big Mac and trying it in the Foodi. But hey, if you are NOT a Big Mac person, try my Quarter pounder knock off HERE,I made in the Foodi and Instant Pot.

It passed our 17 year old Jack attack test. He is my stickler and foodi critic. Not always in a good way either:). He loves to always find just one little thing to say. Today he said “Mom, this is awesome and I hope you make it again, but there is just one thing missing”.
I asked what that was, and his response was ketchup!!! Well guess what son, did you ever hear the McDonald’s song, two whole beef patties, special sauce, lettuce, cheese pickles, onions on a sesame seed bun”? Dude there is no ketchup! That was a Mom win right there, HAHAHA! I hope you enjoy this recipe. I have no doubt you and your family will absolutely LOVE it. That is if you like a good Big Mac, which by the way, I haven’t had a real Big Mac in about 20 years. I kid you NOT!
Big Mac in the Ninja Foodi/Pressure Cooker/Air fryer version INCLUDED
- 6 small Fajita Flour Tortilla soft shells
- Light Thousand Island dressing (Kraft)
- Round Hamburger dill pickles
- 1 small yellow onion
- sesame seeds
- 1 lbs organic grass fed beef (You can use any, I used organic.
- 8 oz. Shredded cheddar cheese
- First thing you want to do is set your Ninja Foodi on High saute mode. Add your ground beef, and one sliced small yellow onion. Saute all until meat is cooked and onions are soft. Keep everything in the pot for now, and shut off saute mode.
- Next, prepare a 7’inch Springform pan by lightly spraying the bottom with non-stick cooking spray. Now take one tortilla and place right into pan. Spread a thin layer of thousand island dressing. From the Pot, scoop out a layer of meat and onions. Spread evenly over the dressing. Spread a layer of shredded cheddar cheese, add about 4 dill pickle rounds, sprinkle sesame seeds. Repeat the exact same all the way to the top and press down as you go. You should get 6 Tortilla’s in the pan easily. Leave a pinch of cheese for the end step down below.
- Add a layer of thousand island on top and sprinkle with sesame seeds. Set pan on a trivet. Add one cup of water to the pot. Lower pan into the Pot and set on High Pressure Manual for 18 minutes. Do a quick release and then top with more shredded cheese. Set Foodi on Bake 375 degrees for about 5 minutes. Remove carefully from pot and set to cool. In the meantime, shred some lettuce to top your Big Mac with a little more thousand island dressing. ENJOY!
- AIR FRYER COOKING TIME ONLY: Do the same exact steps above. (You may have to saute your meat on the stove top) THIS pan fits in most all Air Fryers.Set Air Fryer to 300 degrees for 10 minutes.
