Who doesn't love a Big Mac? These days you can spend a small fortune buying McDonald's for your family, or you can make it at home for a fraction of the cost and eat it while it's hot.

Preparation Time: 20 minutes
Cooking Time: 20 minutes
Serves: 4

Ingredients
Sauce
1/2 cup whole egg mayonnaise
2 tbs french dressing
4 tsp Masterfood's gherkin relish
1 tbs finely minced white onion
1 tsp white vinegar
1 tsp sugar
1 tsp tomato sauce
pinch of salt

Burger
4 Tip Top sesame seed hamburger rolls
800 g mince beef
8 cheese slices
1 onion, finely diced
lettuce, sliced
sliced pickles

Fries
4 large potatoes
oil for frying
salt

Method
Sauce
Combine all ingredients in a bowl and mix well.

Store in a covered container in the refrigerator for 4 hours or overnight to let the flavour develop. Stir occasionally.


Fries
Peel potatoes and wash well. Slice into desired fries size.
Boil a saucepan of salted water and quickly cook the fries until just cooked through but not soft. The time this takes will be determined by how thick your fries are.
Drain the fries on paper towel and place in the refrigerator or freezer to cool completely.
Heat oil in deep fryer or large saucepan filled with oil.
Cook fries on high heat for approx 3-5 minutes until crispy and golden. Drain and salt to taste.


Burger
Divide the mince into 100 g portions and flatten into round patties slightly larger than the diameter of the hamburger rolls.
Using a sandwich press, place patties in the press to cook and sprinkle a pinch of salt on each one. The sandwich press will keep the meat patties flat. If you don't have a sandwich press you can use a frying pan instead.

While the meat patties are cooking, slice each of the hamburger rolls into 3 equal layers and lightly toast each piece.

Assemble your burger by placing a generous serve of sauce on the top of your bottom layer of burger bun. Follow with a sprinkle of onion, lettuce, slices of pickle and the cooked meat patty. Top with cheese then place the middle layer of the hamburger roll on top. Repeat, placing the top layer of the hamburger roll on top.
Serve with fries.

Ideally you will want to start frying your fries when you are assembling your burgers so all components are fresh, hot and ready to serve at the same time.
