BigMacs at home - recipe.

McDonalds is delicious and satisfying, but what really comes to mind is fast, easy, fattening and not filling. But its always there. Its seems cheap until you want to make it at home for yourself then its even cheaper. I wanted to make my own simply because I was stumbling around online when I read "1 McDonalds BigMac contains meat from over 100 different cows" Feel sick yet? Yea, so I wanted to  know exactly whats going in my burger. But McDonalds has come along way since unrecognisable pink sludge for chicken nuggets to actual chicken meat.

Using a recipe I found online, here are our Big Macs complete with fries!

1 Hamburger bun with sesame 
1/2 Another hamburger bun
1/4 lb Mince Beef
1 Pinch of salt
1 tbsp Branston pickle
1 tbsp mayonaise
1 tbsp french dressing
1 teaspoon finely diced onion
1/2 cup chopped lettuce
1 slice American cheese
2 Gerkhins 

1 - Divide mince beef in half. Flatten into two and freeze in grease proof paper. 2 hours - overnight.
2 - Toast in buns in the oven or toaster, toast to a light brown.
3 - Cook the mince on a lightly greased pan,  4-5 minutes on each side.
4 - Salt lightly

Building the burger: (from bottom to top)
Bottom bun
Half of dressing
Half of onions
Half of lettuce
American cheese
Beef patty
Middle bottom bun
2nd Half of dressing
Remaining onion
Remaining lettuce
3 Slices of pickle 
Beef patty
Top bun

Looks about as messy as Maccy's makes them.
