Eating out can be pretty expensive, so I try to make at-home versions. Here is my almost a Big-Mac version.
1 lb ground beef
4 Sesame Seed Buns
4 slices yellow cheese
12 pickles

mustard/ketsup to taste

Special Sauce
⅔ cup mayo
⅓ cup sweet relish
2 teaspoons yellow mustard
¾ teaspoon white vinegar
½ teaspoon paprika
½ teaspoon garlic powder
½ tseaspoon onion powder
Salt & pepper to taste
  1. Divide the beef in 4 equal protions (4 oz each) Cook until done.
  2. While the burgers are cooking, combine all of the Special Sacue ingred. Stir.
  3. Cut the buns in thirds. spread a very thin layer of sauce on each one.
  4. Cut each burger in half, vertically.
  5. On the bottom bun, spread ⅓ of the special sauce, put half the lettuce on it. Top that with a slice of cheese.
  6. Top that with ½ burger, then spread with ⅓ of the special sauce, mustard and ketsup if you want it.
  7. Top with the middle section of the bun. spread with ⅓ of the sauce and the remaining lettuce.
  8. Top with the other beef patty, special sauce, 1 teaspoon onion, 2 pickles, and mustard & ketsup.
  9. Place the top of the bun on burger.
