Ingredients in Big Mac Sauce

This recipe uses both whipped dressing (Miracle Whip) and mayonnaise. So you know, if you care enough to be exact, use both. If not, use one or the other.

You’ll need French salad dressing, both sweet relish, dill pickle relish. And because it’s McDonald’s, we’re going to add some additional sugar.

You’ll also need vinegar, ketchup, salt, and dried, minced onion.

  • Half tablespoon of sweet pickle relish
  • One teaspoon white vinegar
  • One teaspoon ketchup
  • One teaspoon sugar
  • One teaspoon dried minced onion
  • Quarter teaspoon of salt

Big Mac Sauce Tips

Use on your own homemade burgers. Make thinner patties for to end up closer to a Big Mac.

Make your own buns. A nice thick bun cut with a bread knife can give you the “middle bun.”

Use this only “mac sauce” and shredded lettuce to be as authentic as possible.

Cut and make your own french fries to make it a meal. Sort of.
