People are making ‘Big Macs’ at home and they look identical to the McDonald’s burger

A WOMAN has shared her recipe for homemade burgers that look remarkably like McDonald's Big Mac burgers.

Foodie Leanne Short, from Australia, posted images of her meal on Facebook and was praised for much they looked like the classic McDonald’s dish. 

Writing on the Homemade McDonald's Facebook group, which currently has more than 26,700 members, Leanne wrote: “I think I may [have] wasted a lot of my life on making Big Macs”. 

She also revealed that she impressively makes the buns herself, if she has the time. 

Perfect for those stuck at home with the current coronavirus outbreak, the recipe could fill the hole of all those craving McDonald’s but can’t leave the house. 

To make the homemade Big Macs, you first need to season 500 grams of mince beef with salt and pepper to make large but flat meat patties.

She said: “Big Mac burgers are large and flat and shrink when fried so always go a bit bigger than the bun.

“I do it by eye but if you want to measure each one I think it's about 45 grams.”

Then Leanne tackled the sauce, and did so by combining a cup of mayonnaise with garlic powder, onion powder, gherkin relish, white wine vinegar, yellow mustard, smoked paprika and a pinch of salt.

The next step was cooking the burger patties and then assembling the ingredients of the burger. 

Leanne, who has also made a Vegetarian Deluxe burger in the past, said that sometimes she makes her own burger buns, but will often get brioche buns from the supermarket if she doesn’t have time. 

Unsurprisingly, her homemade Big Mac went down a treat, and many people were quick to comment praise.
