Get saucy – Big Mac “special sauce” (vegan)


In the first instalment of an ongoing saucy series, I’m going to share with you how to make a Big Mac “special sauce”.  There’s nothing special about the ingredients, but there IS something special about the taste.  It tastes like the real thing.

Can’t say I was ever a huge fan of Big Macs (I was a double cheeseburger girl myself… disgraceful) but when you become vegan you just want to veganise ALL the things.

Veganised Big Mac… tongue back in mouth please.

There are a lot of special sauce recipes floating around on the internet but I’ve found this combination of ingredients to be the tastiest/most realistic.  To get the best out of your sauce, build a burger with soft seeded burger buns, Fry’s Family Foods Traditional burger patty (or two per burger because, y’know, #fattyvegan), Violife original cheese slices, chopped up lettuce and pickles/gherkins.

You will never want for a dirty McDonald’s Big Mac again.  Promise.



1/4 cup vegan mayo (I use granoVita Mayola – find them in Holland & Barratt, Ocado or Amazon)

1 Tbsp Italian dressing (you can sub French dressing if you have it to hand)

2 Tbsp chopped gherkins/dill pickle

1 Tbsp finely chopped white onion

1/2 tsp sugar

salt & pepper to taste


Prepare all your ingredients and mix together in a small serving dish.  DONE!


Makes enough sauce for two burgers

Time to make: 5 minutes to chop ingredients and mix = 5 minutes

On a scale of easy (1) to pull your hair out difficult (5) = 1, chop, mix, done!
