Big Mac 1 Picture


  • 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



Step 1

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.
