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.
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!
