I wanted to make these Big Mac hot dogs the minute I saw the idea floating around in the online recipe world. First, I love Big Macs. I make a few crazy variations on them at home. I’ve made Big Mac smash burgers, subs, hoagies and sliders! I don’t need an excuse to make Big Macs. These hot dogs taste a lot like the fast food favorite and man, were they fun to make! I was smiling the entire time because it felt like I was making the real deal! They are cool and yummy at the same time!
Of course one of the advantages of making Big Mac hot dogs yourself is that you can kinda play around a bit. Me, I like a lot of onions and lettuce. Oh sure, give me a few extra pickles too. And extra of that special sauce. I want mine messy. The messier the better. Like sauce-running-down-the-front-of-my-arms messy. That’s the right kind of messy. My homemade version of the classic burgers are messy too.
I recently discovered Blue Plate mayonnaise, which I think is the best around. If you can’t find it locally you can pick it up online for a fair price.
Big Mac Hot Dogs
For the sauce (you might have more than you need)
For the sauce
- Whisk together all ingredients in a small bowl. Refrigerate until ready to use.
For the hot dogs
- Note: Preheat your oven to 350 F to bake the buns.
- Cook the hot dogs as desired. I grilled mine, but you can also steam them, pan fry them, bake them (you do have the oven on!) or even microwave them.
- Lightly brush the tops of the buns with the egg white. Sprinkle with the sesame seeds. Bake in a preheated 350 F oven or on a grill for 3-4 minutes.
- Slather the insides of the buns with the sauce. Don't be shy.
- Add a piece of cheese to each bun.
- Add a hot dog to each bun.
- Slide 4 dill pickle chips alongside each hot dog.
- Sprinkle tops of dogs with onion and lettuce.
- Add more sauce if desired.
