Home made Big Mac..

Postby denty632 » Tue Jul 10, 2012 12:28 pm

Gotta try this, this weekend...


any ideas on quantities of the 'special' sauce?

The article quotes...

"For the so-called special sauce - which he reveals is 'not really a secret' because the ingredients have been available in shops and online 'for years' - store-bought mayonnaise, sweet pickle relish and yellow mustard are whisked together with vinegar, garlic powder, onion power and paprika."

anyway, I'm thinking some Wheels rolls, a little sesame and some egg to glaze... and then a plain old patty of beef..

Will let you all know how I get on

I've made them for years, I call them a "Big Mock"

There is a minuscule pinch of garlic powder in the sauce, but onion powder is essential.

Here are the ingredients, but I don't measure, I've made it so many times I use " a little of this and a squirt of that."

Dill Pickle (chopped fine and drained well)
Sweet Paprika (doesn't take much)
Yellow Mustard (again, not much)
Sweetener (to balance the acidity of the pickle and vinegar)
White Vinegar (a tiny squirt)
Onion Powder (this is essential)
Garlic Powder (optional) I stopped using this because using too much will ruin the sauce and a tiny bit is hardly noticeable.
I also add a very tiny amount of tomato ketchup sometimes.

Before I switched to using the paprika & mustard, the following was my recipe.
The Creamy French Dressing is a commercial product over here.

2 Beef Patties (pre-made patties work best...but make sure
they're 100% ground beef...some have fillers) 2 Slices
American Cheese (usually less than 1 carb per slice) Shredded
Lettuce A few thin sliced dill (unsweetened) hamburger
pickles. A little finely chopped onion.

Sauce: 1 Tablespoon chopped dill pickles....2 Tablespoons Mayo...
1 teaspoon Kraft or other CREAMY french dressing (has less than
1 carb per teaspoon)...
1/2 teaspoon white vinegar +/- (may require a little more). A
little (very Little) Equal or other low carb sweetener. A
sprinkle of onion powder(this is essential) This is usually plenty
of sauce for 2 burgers.

Top Cheeseburgers with the chopped onion, shredded lettuce,
pickles and sauce. Let me know what you think.
