Homemade Copycat Big Mac

This copycat recipe features beef patties with melted cheddar cheese, sliced onions and tomatoes, lettuce, pickles on a brioche bun and a tangy secret sauce revealed to make these burgers taste just like the fast food version you love.

Ingredients: – ground beef – garlic powder – salt and pepper – sliced sharp cheddar – mayonnaise – ketchup – mustard – dill pickle relish – ice burg lettuce – tomato – red onion – pickles – brioche bun

The Steps

Step 1: Pack the ground beef into equal sized burger patties using your hands.  Season both sides of the patty with salt, black pepper and garlic. Heat up the grill.

Step 2: Cook your burgers on medium heat on the grill for about 3 minutes.  After three minutes quarter turn the burgers. After another three minutes, flip the burger and repeat.  After quarter turning the burgers once flipped, add sliced cheddar to the top of each patty.

Step 3: Coat both sides of the brioche bun with mayonnaise.  Place either on the top rack of the grill to toast about 3-5 minutes. Mix together mayonnaise, ketchup, mustard and dill relish.

Step 4: Spread big mac sauce on bottom bun.  Place a layer of lettuce on the bottom bun.  Add the burger and top with tomato, red onion and pickles.  Top with the top bun.  Serve immediately.

Hint: for a medium rare burger, cook the burgers until they reach about 135 degrees internal temperature. Use an instant read meat thermometer to take the temperature.
