American | Big Mac Inspired Burgers

Posted on November 4, 2016

Two all beef patties, special sauce, lettuce, cheese, pickles, onions, on a sesame seed bun! I've never actually had a Big Mac, yet I still remember the jingle from 1975. These were really good, Mark and I attacked them like a pack of wolves.

Yield: 4 servings

big mac inspired burgers


1/2 cup mayonnaise

2 tablespoons French dressing

4 teaspoons sweet pickle relish

1/2 teaspoon onion powder

1 teaspoon white vinegar

1 teaspoon sugar

1/8 teaspoon salt

1 white onion, minced

olive oil

iceberg lettuce, sliced into thin strips

1 pound hamburger


freshly ground pepper

8 American cheese slices

sweet pickle relish

4 sesame seed buns



Make Special Sauce: Combine mayonnaise, French dressing, pickle relish, onion powder, white vinegar, sugar and salt in a small bowl; set aside. (You'll have sauce leftover.)

Lightly sauté onions in olive oil. Season with a little salt. Set aside.

Make 4 patties, 4 ounces each. Season with salt and pepper.

Lightly toast buns on a griddle.

Cook patties on griddle. About 3 to 4 minutes per side.

Put burger together -> bottom bun, special sauce, onions, lettuce, beef patty, 2 cheese slices, relish, top bun. Enjoy!
