Recipe Summary

  • ⅔ pound ground beef (85% lean)
  • 2 cups mayonnaise
  • 2 tablespoons prepared yellow mustard
  • 2 tablespoons sweet pickle relish
  • 1 ½ teaspoons white wine vinegar, or more to taste
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon ground paprika
  • 4 hamburger bun bottoms
  • 2 hamburger bun tops
  • 2 tablespoons minced onion, or to taste
  • ½ cup shredded lettuce, or to taste
  • 2 tablespoons dill pickle slices, or to taste
  • 2 slices American cheese
  • salt and ground black pepper to taste

Shape ground beef into 4 flat patties that will fit the hamburger buns. Place them on a tray lined with waxed paper transfer to the freezer.

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.


Copycat Big Mac

There's no denying the power of the Big Mac. From the bun to patty ratio, to the smooth, melty American cheese, and of course the special sauce, everything about it is perfect. Which is why we decided to recreate our very own Big Mac. And trust us, making one yourself is sooooo rewarding and SO worth it.

How To Make The Special Sauce

The special sauce is arguably what makes the Big Mac THE BIG MAC. Once a trade secret, all it takes is whisking together mayonnaise, sweet pickle relish, yellow mustard, and ketchup (for that trademark pink color) with vinegar, garlic powder, onion powder, and paprika. You'll make more sauce than is needed for four burgers, but it's a versatile condiment that you can put on anything from french fries to eggs. In an airtight jar, it can keep in your fridge for up to 10 days&mdashif it lasts that long.

Building The Burger

To make four Big Macs, you need eight pairs of buns: Each Big Mac uses two bottom buns and one bun top to hold two patties. For the perfect copycat patty, we divide the pound of ground beef&mdash80% fat works best here&mdashinto 8 balls weighing 2 ounces each, then flatten them to a disc that measures almost 5" across to create a nice thin burger. We soak the raw onions in ice cold water to take the harsh sting out of them and make them a little sweeter&mdasha short 10-minute bath is all it takes, then drain well and sprinkle over your sauce for the perfect crunch alongside some nice pickle coins and shredded iceberg.

Step 1

Step 4

Form mixture into patties. Cook until it’s well done, 2 to 3 minutes on each side.

With lockdown conditions in place across the UK, restaurants, takeaways and bars have closed. This has meant the luxuries of nipping to McDonald’s for a burger have been taken away.

On April 1, an April Fool spread quickly across social media announcing the reopening of McDonalds, however the fast-food chain quickly put the rumour to bed.

A tweet from the official McDonald’s UK Twitter account said: “Lots of people getting in touch about a certain post circulating tonight.

“It&rsquos fake, we are not reopening next week and any official announcements would come from this page and would spell the brand name correctly.”

The date McDonald’s is due to reopen is currently unknown.

These look ten thousand times better than the real deal. Big Macs are a big weakness for me and I have to pray not to go to MacDonald's when I drive by one. I haven't been to one for a long time, but I will definitely be making YOUR recipe. Hope you're having a wonderful 2014.

"I said, "it's mummy's McDonald's" and they devoured it, which was really nice to see.

"My son said it was better than the real thing, apart from the cup not having a lid. And my daughter said it was nice that we didn't have to go out the house to eat it. They liked that I put their names on the back of the packaging.

Oscar and Lily also enjoyed chicken nuggets served in their own McDonald's packets, pictured

'Even though it's easy to go to McDonald's, the look on their faces was 20 times better then you'd get on a normal trip. I didn't expect them to be so excited - it just goes to show it's the little things that can make such big a difference.'

The meal cost Danielle just £2.15 to make because she already had Pepsi Max, chicken nuggets and salad at home. She picked up a pack of four reduced-price burgers for 65p at Asda and bread buns from the corner shop.

The DIY packaging took 45 minutes to make. Danielle explained she created the chip packets by sticking together pieces of A4 paper covered in the McDonald's logo and wrapped large cups of Pepsi Max in a similar way.

The dedicated mother even went through the trouble of finding greaseproof paper for the cheeseburger and printed the burger logo directly onto two sheets.

Oscar and Lily were delighted with the meal and want their mother to try KFC next

Danielle continued: 'I really had to think how to do the cheeseburger packaging because I knew my daughter, who's autistic, would tell me if it wasn't up to scratch.

'She said even though it wasn't exactly the same but that it was a 'mummy's McDonald's' so she was happy. We used to go McDonald's once a week as a regular treat when I was working full-time, but I became a single parent last year and I've not had the money to continue the ritual.

'It was lovely to have a reminder of nice things we used to do and also to realise that we can still do them on a budget. We've been in lockdown for four weeks because Oscar had symptoms, and it has been tough not being able to do the normal nice things.

'He's fine now, but the McDonald's was a way of having some fun during these times and reminding us of a sort of normality.

'They loved it and have asked me if they can have a homemade KFC next time, so we're having that next week and they're going to help me prepare it.'

Danielle is not the only takeaway fan recreating her favourite dishes in lockdown.


McDonald&rsquos is shut. Here&rsquos how to make your own Big Mac at home

I made a home-schooling-related volcano before breakfast, so how hard can it be to make a Big Mac for lunch? McDonald’s is the latest light in our once familiar world to go dark, and I’ve been asked to try to re-create its most famous product using widely available ingredients.

So where do you start? Like everything else, the answer lies on the internet. It’s in the shape of Dan Coudreat, an executive chef with McDonald’s with nice hands and sad eyes. Dan’s on YouTube in an all-brown kitchen with questionable ruched curtains on the window.

In truth the only thing you need to know to re-create a Big Mac, or the Don’t Panic It’s a Global Pandemic Mac, at home is how to make the sauce. It’s all in the sauce. Dan’s tutorial has racked up 6.7 million hits.

Your device will be covered in sauce by the end of it, because he rattles through it in less than two and a half minutes, and the exact sequence of what goes where refuses to stay in my brain.

“Slow down, Dan,” I beg, midway through, only not as politely. A deadline looms. Where Dan has off-camera minions to buff his nails and hand him implements I have the “home-schooleds”, whose help ended with the YouTube research phase.

My local Lidl has everything I need except a green “sweet pickle relish”, which I’ll substitute with a Mexican salsa verde with a couple of teaspoons of sugar. You need the sugar.

The meat, iceberg lettuce, onion and baps come to a cost of €10.01, with enough organic (give me that, at least) beef mince for six “patties”, as we shall henceforth be calling the burgers.

Dan is vague on the quantities but shows us a bowl with the three main components. So I put a palm-size squirt of mayonnaise with a slightly smaller squirt of yellow mustard and about two teaspoons of the sweetened relish.

There’s a teaspoon of garlic powder and sweet paprika, which turns the whole thing a yellowy salmony pink colour that’s beginning to look familiar. Ah, yes, a buried memory of how the sauce and the Styrofoam box used to meld to the same colour and consistency.
