This is my go-to, always-on-hand sauce for burgers. Sure, I’ll mix it up some times and use other sauces. But this one finds it’s way onto my burgers a lot. I consider it to be a somewhat grownup version of that famous special sauce you get at McDonald’s. And it couldn’t be any easier to make, using ingredients I often have on hand. For me, it’s the Best Burger Sauce there is.
You can use any hot sauce you like. If I’m using this Best Burger Sauce on burgers I’m cooking for others, and I’m not sure if they like spicy foods, I use Cholula or Louisiana hot sauce. Neither is particularly spicy, but both add great flavor to the sauce. If you decide to leave out the heat, I’d recommend adding a pinch or two of Cajun seasoning or even Old Bay.
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.
This is my take on the McDonald’s Big Mac. Grilled, of course. This is one mighty fine burger. You might have to do ‘the hunch’ because it’s gonna drip on ya. And ya might have to press down a bit on it because it’s a tall burger. We’re not messing around here, this is the classic Big Mac, with a wonderful twist.
I’m not a big fan of any burger that isn’t cooked over fire, so these burgers have that Big Mac taste along with that great grill flavor. They’re big, messy, and delicious! I also make grilled Big Mac sliders and slider Big Mac hoagies.
