  • 4 sesame seed hamburger buns, plus 4 more bottom buns to act as the middle bun
  • 1 lb extra-lean ground beef
  • 4 cheese slices
  • dill pickles
  • white onion finely chopped
  • iceberg lettuce finely shredded

Big Mac Sauce

  • 1 cup light mayo
  • 1/4 cup ketchup
  • 2 tbsp relish
  • 2 tbsp finely chopped white onion
  • 1 tsp white wine vinegar
  • salt and pepper, to taste


  • Prepare Big Mac sauce by mixing ingredients together, then prepare onions, lettuce, and pickles for the burgers.
  • Divide raw ground beef into 8 equal portions, rolling into balls and then flattening as thin as possible on a parchment or wax paper-lined baking sheet.
  • Heat a large skillet over med-high heat until hot. Cook beef patties four at a time for 1-2 minutes per side.
  • Assemble burgers by putting Big Mac sauce, lettuce, onion, cheese slice and first hamburger pattie on the bottom bun. Follow with middle bottom bun, then Big Mac sauce, lettuce, onion, pickles and second hamburger pattie. Finish with the final top bun, then serve and enjoy!
