The "Big Mac" at home Challenge....

Before I give you the Big Mac sauce recipe, let me tell you a little story.

About 9 years ago, I completely stop eating beef At first it was a bet, then it turned into a lifestyle. The bet was that 2 of my friends and I wouldn’t eat beef or pork for 2 weeks. We were college students, gaining weight and we decided that we should try to lose weight by cutting out what we ate most, FAST FOOD! So we thought maybe eliminating beef and pork would help us cut down on eating fast food and lead to weight lost.

Well, I totally won the bet because I stop eating pork and beef for a long time (Pork 4 years and beef, 9 years).
I became pregnant with my son in 2004, that lead me back to eating bacon and pepperoni (due to the cravings), but no other pork.
I once also had a craving (during my 2004 pregnancy) for a chipped beef frozen dinner, I ate it and then completely threw it up within 5 minutes of eating it!! I will NEVER touch beef AGAIN!!!

With all this being said, I REALLY missed eating a Big Mac. It used to be my favorite burger! I now eat turkey burgers and still am trying to perfect the recipe, but they are still pretty good J I decided to do a little research and try to see if I could find a recipe for that famous Big Mac sauce, and guess what, I did!!

The sauce turned out pretty good; you really couldn’t tell it was homemade. My husband enjoyed it. (But he’s a man and totally satisfied with any burger I make – LOL)
I on the other hand was a little disappointed because I had high hopes that my turkey burger would now taste like a Big Mac (by adding the sauce), but boy was I WRONG! The thing is, you just can’t duplicate a Big Mac.
So, sauce a WINNER, but BIG FAIL on duplicating the BIG MAC ATTACK!!!

Dear Big Mac…I really, really miss you!!!

Anyway, here is the recipe:

1/2 Cup of Mayonnaise
2 Tablespoons of French Dressing
4 Teaspoons of sweet pickle relish
1 Tablespoon of finely minced onion
1 teaspoon of white vinegar
1 teaspoon of sugar
1/8 teaspoon of salt

-Combine all ingredients in a bowl, whisk really well!!
-Refrigerate for several hours, or even better- overnight (so that flavors mesh well together)
-Stir well, again before serving

Here ya go!!!!!
