Welcome to this edition of cooking with Liquid. 😀 Today we’ll be making a simple yet delicious cheeseburger. As many of you may already know, McDonald’s recently started to sell its secret sauces in grocery stores across Canada. This is the first time ordinary consumers can recreate the iconic tastes of the famous restaurant at home without buying dozens of separate ingredients. So in today’s post let’s learn how to make the world renowned Big Mac sandwich! 🙂
Easy Big Mac Recipe
- Hamburger buns
- Hamburger patties
- Shredded lettuce
- Chopped onions
- Sliced pickles
- Sliced cheddar cheese
- McDonald’s Big Mac sauce
- Cook 2 hamburger patties.
- Place some lettuce and a slice of cheese on a bottom bun and toast it in an oven until the cheese melts.
- Place 1 cooked patty on top of the cheese, followed by another bottom bun.
- Continue stacking with Big Mac sauce, lettuce, pickles, another patty, and finally the top bun.
Eh Voila! Within 15 minutes you have yourself a juicy cheeseburger, Big Mac style. 🙂
If you don’t want to be lazy like me, then you can make your own beef patties using ground beef. Just make sure the size of your raw patties is slightly larger than your buns. The patties will shrink a bit as they cook. Grilling is the best way to make burger patties, but cooking them in a cast iron or non-stick pan over medium heat for 4 minutes on each side works as well.
Unlike steak, ground beef should be cooked thoroughly to kill any harmful bacteria that might be in the center of the patties.
The total cost to make this kind of burger at home should cost around $4 to $6 depending on how big you make it. For reference, McDonald’s restaurants use 45 gram hamburger patties for their Big Macs. The patties I bought from Superstore seen in the image above were 130 grams each, at a cost of $1.50 each.
If you do not have access to the Big Mac sauce, you can substitute with Thousand Island dressing, which tastes very similar.
Congrats! You’ve learned how to make your very own Big Mac sandwich. You deserve a patty on the back. 😀
