Lettuce burgers are the newest menu item at McDonald's in Queensland

McDonald’s has rolled out lettuce burgers in Australia.

The new menu item features two giant lettuce leaves — instead of buns — around a meat patty and burger toppings.

“‘Lettuce’ introduce you to our famous #lettuceburgers,” a McDonald’s in Queensland, Australia wrote on Instagram. “All the same ingredients packed into a couple of large lettuce leaves!”

 The new items looks like mostly lettuce, to us.

The lettuce burger is part of Create Your Taste, a customisable menu that most McDonald’s locations in Australia offer.

Create Your Taste, which lets customers order their hamburgers from touch-screen kiosks, started rolling out in the US this year. 

McDonald’s often tests new menu items in foreign markets like Australia before bringing them to the US. For example, in addition to Create Your Taste, the brand’s coffee line, McCafe, was tested in Australia before coming to the US.
