McDonald’s has dominated our lives since the fast food restaurant was founded in 1940. Famed for its cheap and tasty fast food, the Golden Arches has more than one signature item on its menu, but few are as revered as the Big Mac.
Introduced in 1967, the burger consists of two 1.6 oz (45.4 g) beef patties, that “special sauce” we’ve come to know and love, iceberg lettuce, American cheese, pickles, and onions – all of which are served in a three-part sesame seed bun.
Now, Twisted, the London-based creator of the internet’s greatest viral food videos, has made its own take on this McDonald’s classic. In a nutshell, it’s the Big Mac, but in a form that’s much bigger and better than what you’ve ever seen before…
Dubbed the “Giant Big Mac Ring”, Twisted’s version of the Big Mac involves supersizing McDonald’s original creation while creating a space in the middle of the burger to hold more than enough fries to accompany it.
The video below provides step-by-step instructions on how to make the Giant Big Mac Ring:
Now that you’ve got the instructions on how to make the Big Mac of your dreams, you’ll need these ingredients to make it happen:
500g bread dough
800g beef mince
2 tsp salt
1 tsp ground pepper
1/4 cup melted butter
1 tbsp sesame seeds
1/2 cup burger sauce
1/2 head iceberg, shredded
1/4 cup sliced pickles
1/2 white onion, finely chopped
6 slices American cheddar cheese
By now, you’re probably wondering why that ingredients list doesn’t include the recipe for McDonald’s special sauce but don’t worry, despite keeping it a secret for 45 years, the fast food giant finally explained what it contains in 2012.
To make the sauce, you’ll need to combine mayo, sweet relish, yellow mustard, garlic powder, onion powder, and paprika.
Well, I don’t know about you, but I certainly know what I’m having for dinner tonight!
