If you travel to the near by university you will find many places to eat. One of the largest eating places in the student lounge is a fast food one. In fact it is not only fast food but also host a symbol that children can read way before they can read. If you say McDonalds with the golden arches then you would be right.
One of the most popular sandwiches at the fast food restaurant with the golden arches is the Big Mac. It is not a new sandwich in fact it has been around 30+ years. I can remember it coming on the scene when I was a kid. The beauty of this sandwich is that it can also be made at home. Just take a look
McDonald’s Big Mac
2 uncut bakery buns (with sesame seeds for authenticity)
1/2 pound ground beef
1 slice cheddar cheese or 2 thin slices (don’t bother with the American stuff, not even for authenticity)
1/4 cup shredded lettuce
1 dill pickle, thinly sliced
3 tablespoons diced onions
1/4 cup thousand island dressing or secret sauce (recipe follows)
Light the grill. Cut the bakery buns into thirds and butter the cut sides. Split the ground beef into four equal parts (1/8th pound each) and pat each portion into a thin circle, larger than the size of the bun to allow for shrinkage. Place the patties on the 400-degree grill and grill four minutes. Flip and cover with cheese slices. Grill an additional 4 minutes or to desired doneness.
Remove patties from grill and allow to rest while you lightly toast the buns. This will help them support the stacking that comes with building a Big Mac.
Build your Big Mac: bottom bun > patty covered with cheese > lettuce > thousand island dressing on bottom of the middle bun > patty (covered with cheese) > onions > pickles > more lettuce > thousand island dressing on the top bun.
Makes 2 large, 1/3-pound burgers.
serve it up in a basket with fries and your family will be delighted
