Homemade Big Macs

Homemade Big Macs are LIFE! Sounds dramatic, but honestly they are so darn good!

We recreated the classic at home tonight and they were the BOMB! So much like the original thanks to Coles special burger sauce, I served with homemade fries and everything was inhaled.

For the traditional 3 layers I sliced the buns twice, but for the kids I opted for traditional burger style.


Ingredients (makes 6 burgers) –
500g beef mince
1 egg
Half a cup of Panko crumbs
6 burger buns
6 cups of thinly sliced iceberg lettuce
Half a brown onion finely diced
6 cheddar cheese slices
Sliced pickles
Coles Special burger sauce
Salt and pepper

Tip – One of my dear friends Sharyn P. swears by using dried onion flakes and rehydrating them, she says they taste exactly like McDonalds onions and she’s a top cook so you can totally take her word for it.


Method
In a large bowl combine the mince, egg and Panko and season well. Mix until well combined and form even patties ensuring they are super thin and will fit your buns.
Cook your patties in a frypan on high heat and then to your bun layer lettuce, cheese, meat patty, sauce onion pickles and more sauce.
Absolutely scrumptious and a lot cheaper to make at home. I guesstimate it cost me around $13 to make 6 burgers at home as opposed to around $7 to buy one at Maccas.


This treat meal will definitely hit our meal plan again.
