  • Mix mayonnaise, mustard, pickle relish, white wine vinegar, onion powder, garlic powder, and paprika in a bowl to make sauce. Refrigerate for 10 minutes.

  • Preheat a large skillet over medium heat. Toast buns in batches until lightly golden, 1 to 2 minutes.

  • Layer some of the sauce, 1 tablespoon minced onion, 2 tablespoons lettuce, and pickles on 2 bottom buns. Layer some of the sauce and remaining 1 tablespoon minced onion, 2 tablespoons lettuce, and American cheese on the other bottom buns.

  • Season patties with salt and pepper. Cook in the hot skillet 2 at a time until browned, 3 to 4 minutes per side. Place 1 patty over each bottom bun; stack and cover with top buns.

We LOVED this! I made single burgers (Mac Jr.'s), and quartered the sauce recipe, which was the perfect amount for 5 burgers. Also, I made my patties about 4 ounces each b/c I was only making singles. The family flipped over these...they really did taste just like a Big Mac! I will def be making these again~YUM, YUM, YUM!!!!!! Thanks for sharing. :) Read More

This does not taste like Big Mac Sauce. We eat enough Big Macs in this household to know the difference. I ve yet to find a recipe that is anywhere near tasting like the actual sauce. Read More

Hubby declared the sauce to be spot on. That said, the recipe makes enough sauce for dozens of burgers, not just two. I cut the sauce in half and still..... it's a LOT of sauce. I did make my burger patties bigger than instructed, but I couldn't help myself. 2/3 lbs for 4 patties is probably about what McD's would serve. Read More

I doubled the recipe and made 8 patties out of 2 full pounds of beef. I cut the sauce recipe in half. These were great! I will be making them again. Read More

How could I not make this immediately?!?! Easy peasy with the most difficult part being the small mince of the onions. Everything I needed was already in the house! A couple of ice cold Cokes added and my husband and son were in heaven! Read More

Loved it! Im in New Zealand. I made the patties with some breadcrumbs and an egg to bind it and I put some american mustard in the pattie too. I needed to make them even thinner then 5mm when uncooked and wider than the bun (I made them the same size and they shrunk!) I could not find "dill pickles" at the supermarket - found out they are called gherkins here! and there was no pickle relish so I just blended some gherkins and it worked. The sauce is AMAZING!!! so nice to have maccas in lockdown- my partner has not been coping with level 4 restrictions! Read More
