Better-Than-Big-Mac

Love a Big Mac?
Sometimes it really hits the spot, doesn’t it?
Jordan has masterfully been recreating this popular fast-food meal, at home, for years now, and I selfishly never thought to share!
It’s crazy how similar it tastes! Even friends of the kids beg for him to make it.
This is a perfect meal to make for an outdoor dinner with the family. Just prep the sauce beforehand, grab the other ingredients and head out to your fave bbq spot! It’s also a great meal to outsource to someone else in your family to actually cook and assemble 😉
Enjoy this better-for-you version guys! (and this snippet of our family bbq, making this recipe) x

Other

  • 3. Shape beef into patty sizes and fry. Add slices of cheese on top of patty at final stage of patty cooking until melted.
  • 4. Spread Special Sauce thickly on bottom bun. Add diced onion, pickles, beef patty with melted cheese. Add lots of lettuce. Add top bun.

Notes

We like to double the beef and cheese for this recipe, and for dinner the following day, we fry up a "bubble and squeak" with some cooked brown rice (that is always on hand in the fridge), chopped up left-over cooked beef patties, some sauce and whatever veg we have on hand (mushroom, broccoli, whatever - just fry them up first and then add the rest).
