In a bowl combine ground chuck and salt and pepper. Shape meat into 10 meat patties. Shape patties somewhat thin. Set a griddle to 350 degrees. Place meat on the griddle and cook for 3 to 4 minutes. Season with a sprinkle of salt and pepper. Flip burgers and cook for an additional 3 to 4 minutes on each side, or until juices from the meat run clear.
Spread softened butter on cut sides of bun and place on griddle until the bread begins to brown. Flip the middle bun and allow to toast on both sides.
Build the burger by starting at the bottom. The bottom bun, Big Mac sauce, onions, lettuce, cheese, hamburger patty, and the middle bun. Spread the Big Mac sauce, onion, lettuce, hamburger patty, two or three pickle slices, and finally the top bun.
How to Make Big Mac Buns
As you know, Big Mac's have three layers of buns. It's so easy to make your own version. I use a package of hamburger buns but we are going to use some of the buns as the middle. So if you use a package of 8 hamburger buns you can make about five homemade Big Macs. Cut the top off of the top bun to make it even, then use the bottom half as the middle portion of the Big Mac.
