Grilled Big Mac

This is my take on the McDonald's Big Mac.

I'm not a big fan of any burger that isn't cooked over fire, so these burgers have that Big Mac taste along with that great grill flavor. They're big, messy, and delicious!

Makes:4 burgers
Prep time: 10 minutes
Cook time: 20 minutes

  • 2 pounds ground beef
  • Salt and pepper

1. Form ground beef in to 8 patties, each about 3 1/2 ounces each. Season with salt and pepper.

2. Grill burgers until done. Top with cheese.

3. Lightly toast the buns.

4. Assemble burgers by slathering bun bottoms with special sauce. Add some onion and lettuce. Top with a burger patty and dill pickles. Add another bun. Slather it with sauce and add onion, lettuce, a patty and more dill pickle. Top with another burger bun top.
