  • 1 1/2 pounds ground chuck
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon of butter
  • <a href="" title="McDonald’s Secret Sauce">"special sauce"
  • 5 slices of American cheese
  • 1 tablespoon minced onion
  • 15 dill pickle slices


  • 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 addition 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 the 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.
