Copycat Big Mac

Is there anything more iconic than a Big Mac? This recipe is the perfect copycat to the McDonald's staple menu item.

At this point, I'm not sure anyone would be surprised that I have another copycat recipe to share. I adore copycat recipes and will continue to find new ones to make. In fact, I definitely think 2019 needs to be another year for me to create my own and I 100% have quite a few in mind that I would like to recreate. However, I adore finding ones from my blogging friends too and this Copycat Big Mac recipe is definitely a keeper. It's a really easy recipe to make and doesn't really have too many more steps than a regular ole burger. So why not have it instead of a regular burger? The sauce is iconic and this one does taste nearly identical and has all the right elements, in my opinion. I love that the buns are toasted and the burger patties are really thin. All-in-all, it is definitely a winner in my book!

What you need:
For the sauce:
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 2 Tbsp. French dressing
  • 1 heaping Tbsp. relish
  • 3 tsp. dill pickle juice
  • 1 tsp. sugar
  • 1 tsp. dried minced onion
  • 1 tsp. ketchup
  • Dash of salt
For the burgers:
  • 2 lb. ground beef
  • Salt and pepper
  • 12 hamburger buns (you'll need 6 tops and 12 bottoms)
  • Butter
  • Shredded lettuce
  • Dill pickles
  • Minced onion (I like to reconstitute dried minced onion)
  • American cheese slices
  1. For the sauce: mix all ingredients together and refrigerate.
  2. For the burgers: shape the ground beef into 12 thin patties. Season them with salt and pepper.
  3. Cook in a skillet, flipping once, until done. Topping with American cheese when almost finished.
  4. Meanwhile, butter each bun and toast in a skillet over medium to medium-high heat.
  5. To build burgers: spread sauce on the buttered side of each bun. On each bottom, top with onions, pickles, and lettuce. Then top each bottom bun with a burger. Stack a bottom with another bottom and then a top bun.

One of the last copycat burgers I shared was the Steak 'n Shake Frisco Patty Melts which also has a secret sauce! But I think what goes really well with a copycat Big Mac is copycat McDonalds Classic French Fries - recipe from Genius Kitchen.
