BigMac copycat recipe: Homemade Big Mac burger

This real easy and simple BigMac copycat recipe can be done quicker than you can probably walk to your local McDonalds.

It’s surprisingly straight forward to create a simple homemade Big Mac using Heinz Burger Sauce, available in most shops alongside the ketchup. If that fails you can use Thousand Island dressing.

It’s not QUITE the same as the actual Big Mac sauce, but that takes a day to make (recipe here, if you want to make it to use in this burger) so we’ll make do without it.

Then all you need is some lettuce, onions, a chunky burger bun (so you can cut it into thirds), a pair of burgers and some cheese slices.

Price wise this very cheap Big Mac recipe works out at less than £1.50 per serving!
