Top Secret Recipes Burger Special Sauce

 
  
Use Top Secret Recipes Burger Special Sauce on your homemade burgers, sandwiches and wraps.
 
Here are some ways you can use this deliciously special sauce:
 
 
Todd Wilbur's version of
McDonald's Big Mac               
 
14 ounces ground beef (20 percent fat)
Salt
Pepper
4 sesame seed hamburger buns, plus 4 additional heels (bottom bun)
8 teaspoons finely minced white onion
2 cups coarsely chopped iceberg lettuce
4 slices American cheese
8 to 12 dill pickle hamburger slices
 
1. Measure out 1¾-ounce portions of the ground beef and form it into balls (or estimate making balls that are slightly bigger than golf balls). Press each ball of ground beef down flat onto a wax paper-lined sheet pan. The patties should be about the same diameter as the buns. Cover the patties and place them into your freezer for one hour.
2. Pre-heat a griddle or large skillet to medium/low heat.
3. Slice a thin layer off of the bottom of each of the extra bun heels. These will be your center buns, or clubs.
4. Lightly brown the faces of all of the buns (both sides of the club) on the hot griddle or pan.
5. When the buns are browned, cook the beef patties on the hot griddle or pan for 2 to 3 minutes per side. Lightly sprinkle salt and pepper on each patty as they cook.
6. While the beef is cooking prepare each sandwich by spreading a tablespoon of Burger Special Sauce on the face of the bottom bun and on one side of the club bun.
7. Sprinkle about a teaspoon of onion on top of the sauce on each bun, followed by about ¼ cup of chopped lettuce.
8. Lay a slice of American cheese on the lettuce on the bottom bun, and 2 to 3 pickles on the lettuce on the club bun.
9. Arrange a beef patty on the cheese, and another one on the pickles, then place the club bun onto the bottom bun and top off the sandwich with the crown. Microwave on high for 15 seconds to warm and soften the buns as if the burger had been packed in a box.
 
Makes 1 hamburger.
