This CopyCat Big Mac Recipe will allow you to enjoy the flavors of McD’s at home and save you some $$’s. My kiddos finally blessed me with ordering up a Big Mac last week. I was excited that they were being adventurous as they are not big on sauces on their burgers. I feel like they are “Big Kids” now, ha ha. I am glad they decided to give my favorite McDonald’s sandwich a try. The only problem is that they all really liked the Big Mac and now want to add it as their preferred McDonald’s order, ha ha. Big Macs cost a bit more than their usual Value Menu Mc Double.
Copycat Big Mac Recipe
For dinner this past weekend the kiddos were wanting to order up their new favorite McDonald’s sandwich. The hubby decided to make them all a CopyCat Big Mac at home to help us save some $$’s.
He took hours and hours getting this one right. Those hours paid off as this CopyCat Big Mac was a hit with all of us. I was a bit skeptical but not now. These homemade Big Macs were awesome!
The hubby even got the “Special Sauce” perfect for our CopyCat Recipe. I was worried it would be to mayo flavored. Nope… just perfect.
