How to Make McDonald's Big Mac at Home

Learn the Secret to the Big Mac Sauce — and Prepare to Put It on Everything

We've figured out how to make McDonald's french fries and classic Egg McMuffin, and now you can make the Big Mac in your very own kitchen. A 2012 video of McDonald's Executive Chef Dan Coudreaut breaking down the makings of the iconic sandwich has resurfaced and we're lovin' it. Chef Dan shows us how to hack the Big Mac right down to its famous sauce, using similar ingredients available at your local grocery store.

Starting with the sauce, combine mayo, sweet pickle relish, classic yellow mustard, white wine vinegar, garlic powder, onion powder, and paprika. Lightly toast three buns and brown two 100 percent beef patties in a pan, seasoning with a little salt and pepper. To finally assemble the Big Mac, add a dollop of the sauce on the "heel" (bottom bun) and the "club" (middle bun. Add a pinch of onions and lettuce onto both pieces, a slice of cheese on one, and two hamburger pickles on the other. After putting a patty on top of each bun, stack the prepared club on top of the heel, and finally place the "crown" (top bun) to top it all off. And voilà, you've got yourself a homemade Big Mac!
