Ingredients

  • 2

    uncut bakery buns (with sesame seeds for authenticity)

  • butter

  • 2/3

    pounds ground beef

  • 1

    slice cheddar cheese or 2 thin slices (don’t bother with the American stuff, not even for authenticity)

  • 1/4

    cup shredded lettuce

  • 1

    dill pickle, thinly sliced

  • 3

    tablespoons diced onions

  • 1/4

    cup thousand island dressing

Directions

Light the grill. Cut the bakery buns into thirds and butter the cut sides. Split the ground beef into four equal parts and pat each portion into a thin circle, larger than the size of the bun to allow for shrinkage. Place the patties on the 400-degree grill and grill four minutes. Flip and cover with cheese slices. Grill an additional 4 minutes or to desired doneness. Remove patties from grill and allow to rest while you lightly toast the buns. This will help them support the stacking that comes with building a Big Mac. Build your Big Mac: bottom bun > patty covered with cheese > lettuce > thousand island dressing on bottom of the middle bun > patty (covered with cheese) > onions > pickles > more lettuce > thousand island dressing on the top bun. Makes 2 large, 1/3-pound burgers.
