McDonald's Fan Creates '10/10' Homemade Big Mac
With lockdown stretching on for a few more weeks at least, many of us are missing our old fast food favourites. Now one burger-lover has shared his recipe to create a Big Mac at home.
The copycat Big Mac looks pretty spot on in the pics and is a '10/10' according to its creator, who shared the recipe on Facebook group Homemade McDonald's.
Posting the recipe, the Aussie man explained he had bought a four pack of beef brisket patties, which he seasoned with salt and pepper before cooking.
Once cooked, he topped them with Cole's burger sauce, shredded lettuce, Dairylea cheese, pickles and onions, served on a bun. To make it look a little bit more like that real deal, he even threw in an additional piece of bun between the two patties. Inspired.
Alongside his recipe, he wrote: "Bit cocky, but rating this 10/10 even without the [sesame seed bun]."
His post has been flooded with compliments from Maccie's fans - with one saying he had 'nailed it' and another telling him his burger looked 'spectacular'.

When asked how it tasted, the Aussie replied that it was like a 'Big Mac on 'roids!' - which doesn't sound too delicious, but I'm sure you get the point.
Now if you're not an Aussie and you're reading this wondering where you're going to pick up some Big Mac-syle sauce, then don't worry, because Aldi has your back.
It re-released its bargain basement Bramwells Chunky Burger Sauce today, which costs just 75p for a 250ml bottle.
This guy isn't the first to turn his hand at a bit of DIY fast food. Earlier this week a couple showed how they recreated McDonald's Cheese Bites. And they look bloody good.
Rees Edwards-Caulier and his girlfriend Kirsty Simpson posted their creation on TikTok to show others how to make the fakeaway at home.
Alongside a deep fat fryer, you'll need Babybel, breadcrumbs, an egg and some flour.
Unwrap your Babybel, roll it in the flour, then the egg and then the breadcrumbs before chucking it in the deep fat fryer until its golden brown and then - ta dah - you've got yourself some homemade cheese bites. Clever, eh?
