Mixing the Special Sauce


Everybody can recite the recipe of McDonald’s Flagship burger the Big Mac.


But what about that “special sauce” recipe?

Even more special on a home made hamburger.

I don’t have any connections at the golden arches… but I did eat a BigMac today and then I  jumped on the internet to find the closest knock off I could find.

There are a bunch of options but this one seemed the closest.  After mixing up

a dozen different BBQ sauces this week this sauce stands out as something… well special.   It was a real treat on a homemade burger.

But after 12.50 in ingredients maybe I should have just gone to McDonalds.   Still, give this McDonalds Special Sauce Recipe Knockoff a try.

It rocks.
