My Big Mac Attack

Sure taste close to it.

Burger Sandwich

  • Sesame seed bun
  • 100 percent all-beef patty
  • 2 Dill pickle slices
  • Shredded Iceberg lettuce
  • Dehydrated onion, hydrated
  • A special sauce
  • 1 slice American yellow cheese
  • Black pepper to taste


Yield 4 servings


  • 4 Tablespoons mayonnaise
  •  1 Tablespoon minced pickle chips or relish
  •  1/2 teaspoon yellow mustard
  •  1/4 teaspoon white (clear) vinegar
  •  1/8 teaspoon paprika powder
  •  1/8 teaspoon garlic powder
  •  1/8 teaspoon onion powder
  •  1/2 teaspoon ketchup



Make the sauce in advance and keep it refrigerated (covered bowl) until you are ready to prepare the bun; thoroughly mix all the sauce ingredients in a medium size bowl using a whisk or a fork.


Moisten a small handful of dehydrated onions for each sandwich; use enough water to allow them to plump back up, drain and store them in the refrigerated until you are ready to prepare the bun. Dehydrated onions can be found in the section where you buy dried seasonings and or herbs. Using regular fresh onions, won’t cut it :)


Use 100% lean ground beef. This recipe was used with 80% lean, with no extra oil for cooking; you could use beef with less fat content, but you may need to add oil. Make golf size balls using wet hands, and compact the ball well. Flatten and form into a patty; place it in the freezer until ready to fry (this burger was cooked directly from the freezer.) Preheat the pan to medium heat before cooking the patty; fry the patty (with black pepper to taste) while you prepare the bun (if you’re talented at multi tasking) or prepare the bun ahead of time; you won’t need any salt! If you cannot make a thin enough patty, after the burger is cooked, slice it in half, in order to make 2 thin ones. If you make the sandwich with bigger burgers, it will not taste as good!


Carefully slice a sesame seed bun into 3rds and toast to a light golden brown. If the bun is already split, cut the top bun in half or use two bottoms and a top.


1.On a large work surface, line up 3 sliced buns.

2. Add sauce to the middle and heel.

3 Add onions to the middle and heel.

4 Add lettuce to the middle and heel.

5 Add  pickles to the middle; add cheese to the heel.

6 Add a burger to the middle; add a burger to the heel.

7 Carefully pick up the middle stack and put it on the heel.

8 Place the top bun on the remaining bare burger and microwave a few seconds if you want the cheese melted more.

There, you have it; "Two all-beef patties, special sauce, lettuce, cheese, pickles, onions –
all on a sesame seed bun."  Forgive me; I don’t have fries to go with it.

Let us not forget The Classic Whopper in a Jr. style.

  Burger, pickles, ketchup, onion, tomato, lettuce, mayonnaise, on a toasted sesame seed bun; in that order.
