Today we are looking at what it really takes to make the McDonald’s signature burger, the Big Mac! Everyone has heard of this special burger and usually if you are in the mood for one, you would have to drive to a local McDonald’s and buy one. Not Anymore! Now we are going to show you how you can make your very own Big Mac from the comfort of your own kitchen!
You will need-
1 regular-sized sesame seed bun
1 regular-sized plain bun
2 beef patties (2 ounces each, flattened to bun size)
2 tablespoons Special Sauce (recipe below)
2 teaspoons finely-minced onions
1 slice American cheese
3 dill pickle slices
1/4 cup of washed, shredded iceberg lettuce (drained)
1/2 cup mayonnaise
2 tablespoons french salad dressing
1 tablespoon sweet pickle relish
1/2 tablespoon yellow mustard
1 teaspoon white vinegar
1 teaspoon sugar
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon onion powder
1/2 teaspoon paprika
In order to create the signature Big Mac you will need t follow the steps in the video and the steps provided here!
Mix all of the sauce ingredients together, and blend the mixture until smooth. Store it in the refrigerator for about an hour before use to allow flavors to blend.
Take the crusts of the bun or in other words the bottom and top part where it’s hard, and feed it to the birds, use it as a coaster, or just throw it away if you wish because it’s not needed in this recipe.
Flatten two patties to about 3-1/2 inches (85mm) in diameter, and about 1/4 inch (8mm) thick.
Mince about a quarter of a small white onion and set aside.
Shred or chop an iceberg lettuce leaf into thin strips.
Cook the beef patties. You can cook it however you wish and to your preference for doneness (rare to well done).
Toast the 3 buns. While the patties are frying, gently toast the buns. Do this to the both sides of the regular bun bottom and toast the sesame bun as usual (the inner sides).
Sauce the toasted buns. Take the bottom of the regular bun and the bottom of the sesame bun and put 1 tablespoon of the sauce on them.
Add lettuce, cheese, and pickles. Grab a big pinch of the sliced lettuce and plop it onto each sauced bun.
On the bottom bun (the sesame), place a slice of cheese on top of the lettuce. On the regular bun, put the pickle slices on the lettuce.
Stack each burger patty on top of the condiments (cheese and pickles) on each layer. Top both layers with minced onions.
Pick up, carefully, the regular bun (with everything) and stack it on the bottom layer.
Place the top of the sesame bun on top of the burger.
Enjoy your home-made Big Mac!
