McDonald’s Big Mac Copycat Recipe

By  |  Comments

I been craving a delicious and unhealthy Big Mac from McDonald’s for awhile now but we all know is not the healthiest craving to satisfy. Then I stumbled with this McDonald’s Big Mac Copycat Recipe from The Family Kitchen in Babble, I was like ok this Big Mac I will eat! All those who love Big Mac like I do, know that there is no dressing/sauce like the secret sauce from the Big Mac. For this recipe you can use thousand island dressing but I’ve heard around there is a close copycat for the secret sauce. So let’s get on that recipe.

McDonald’s Big Mac Copycat Recipe

from The Family Kitchen, Babble

Yield: Makes 2 large, 1/3-pound burgers


  • 2 uncut bakery buns (with sesame seeds for authenticity)
  • butter
  • 1/2 pound ground beef
  • 1 slice cheddar cheese or 2 thin slices (don’t bother with the American stuff, not even for authenticity)
  • 1/4 cup shredded lettuce
  • 1 dill pickle, thinly sliced
  • 3 tablespoons diced onions
  • 1/4 cup thousand island dressing or try the secret recipe read below


  1. Light the grill. Cut the bakery buns into thirds and butter the cut sides. Split the ground beef into four equal parts (1/8th pound each) and pat each portion into a thin circle, larger than the size of the bun to allow for shrinkage. Place the patties on the 400-degree grill and grill four minutes. Flip and cover with cheese slices. Grill an additional 4 minutes or to desired doneness.
  2. Remove patties from grill and allow to rest while you lightly toast the buns. This will help them support the stacking that comes with building a Big Mac.
  3. Build your Big Mac: bottom bun > patty covered with cheese > lettuce > thousand island dressing on bottom of the middle bun > patty (covered with cheese) > onions > pickles > more lettuce > thousand island dressing on the top bun.
