How To Make A Big Mac At Home

A few weeks ago, McDonald’s Canada showed us why burgers look better in ads. Now, they have another video showing us how to make a Big Mac using ingredients from the grocery store, including the not-so-secret sauce. It doesn’t give measures for the ingredients, but here’s a rough recipe for it based on the video below:


  • Mayonnaise
  • Sweet pickle relish
  • Classic yellow mustard
  • White wine vinegar
  • Garlic powder
  • Onion powder
  • Paprika
  • Onion
  • Lettuce
  • 2 hamburger pickles
  • 1 slice of American cheese
  • 1.5 sesame seed buns (two bottoms and one top)
  • 2 all-beef patties



  1. To make the sauce, mix roughly equal parts of relish and mustard with twice more mayo, some white wine vinegar, and equal parts garlic powder, onion powder, and paprika.
  2. Dice the onion
  3. Chop the lettuce
  4. Toast the buns in a skillet
  5. Grill the burgers in the skillet, and season them with salt and pepper after flipping them over
  6. In the following order, place sauce, onions, and lettuce on both the heel (bottom bun) and the club (middle bun)
  7. Add the slice of cheese to the heel
  8. Add two pickles to the club
  9. Add patties to both the heel and the club
  10. Put the club on the heel, then the top on the club

It all seems like a lot more work and expense than a Big Mac is worth — given that it’s pretty inexpensive to buy, — but if you’re making them in bulk for a party, or just want to make sure you’re eating food made from high-quality ingredients, then this might be worth it.
