meat

don’t judge me. i love big macs. so much. they’re perfect.

so now doesn’t a big mac sound even more perfect with much much fresher ingredients? we thought so.

HOMEMADE BIG MACS
(for two)

1 lb hamburger meat
2 slices mild cheddar
romaine lettuce
sesame seed buns
extra minced white onion from sauce
(we skipped the pickle)

SPECIAL SAUCE
(from topsecretrecipes.com)

1/2 cup mayo
2 tb french dressing
4 tsp sweet pickle relish
1 tb minced white onion
1 tsp white vinegar
1 tsp sugar
1/8 tsp salt

combine all ingredients in a bowl and refrigerate. we ended up futzing with the sauce a little to get it just right for us by adding some more mayo, salt, and vinegar.

mold four thin patties from your meat. slice up the lettuce into thin shreds and carefully cut two hamburger buns into half pieces.

while grilling the patties (two with cheese, two without), butter and cook the buns face down on a pan.

once the burgers are medium rare, let rest for 5 minutes while compiling the rest of your burger.
