If you've been a reader for awhile, you know that Ian is all about cooking up ridiculous things, and that, more often than not, those ridiculous meals are ridiculously unhealthy and ridiculously delicious. Well, that's the case with our dinner on Sunday night. You see, Ian watched a YouTube video on how to make a Big Mac a week or two ago and has been talking about it ever since. So, on Sunday night, he proposed we make them using the ingredients that we already had in the house. And, of course, I said "Heck yes! Let's do it."
And, as always, I have no regrets. It turns out, Big Macs are incredibly easy to make. The patties are literally just ground beef seasoned with salt and pepper. There is nothing else in them! So, you just make two really thin patties, fry them up until they are good and cooked and pop them on a bun with shredded lettuce, diced onions, sliced pickles, cheese slices and Big Mac sauce -- mayo, Thousand Island Dressing, relish, paprika and garlic powder. Easy peasy and so delicious.
Now, we didn't have any sesame seed buns, so we used some multigrain ones we had in the fridge. We also didn't have cheese slices because, well, they're disgusting, so we used cheddar. And, we didn't have iceberg lettuce, so we used leaf. But, even with all the alterations, our burgers turned out to be amazing. They actually tasted like Big Macs, although, ever so slightly better. (I think the real cheddar did the trick!)
So, there you have it folks, another of our glutenous dinners. Have you ever tried to recreate a meal from a fast food restaurant? This is Ian's second recreation. The first was the Double Down from KFC. I have to admit, that was pretty damn good, too.
