I have not been to McDonald's since I was 13. It is true! Somehow I made that decision half my life ago, and I still remember the last thing I had there was a strawberry milkshake...
The other week, my boyfriend said - here, wanna try and make a veggie Big Mac? Instantly I though, hmmm seems a big controversial in a way, but then again - why the heck not?! I was a picky eater up until about 7 years ago, and my dad once said to me that I would eventually start eating the burgers with everything on it - even the pickle and mustard that I once got him to scrape off with a napkin every time they had forgotten my little special order of "ketchup only" on my Happy Meal burger. Sorry McD-staff, I was one of those annoying little buggers...
4 peppers Quorn steaks
4 leaves of iceberg lettuce
4 slices of cheese (we used smoked Austrian cheese)
3 sesame buns (use two bottoms and one top for each burger to get the two layers!)
For the famous BigMac sauce:
4 tbsp mayonnaise
2 tbsp French Dressing
2 tbsp sweet pickle (we used Branston's)
1/3 medium onion, grated
1 tbsp white wine vinegar
1 tsp sugar
1/2 tsp salt
- Start by frying the veggie steaks as instructed on the package, in the mean time - combine all the sauce ingredients together and keep aside in a bowl. Season to taste and add a little bit more mayonnaise if necessary!
- Once the burgers are done, toast the buns lightly, and start stacking! Bun - lettuce - steak - cheese - sauce x 2, top off with the lid, et voila!
I must admit, I only had a mini Mac with one layer, cause it was SO filling! Tasty though, mmmm! And it is a nifty recipe to have for a burger dressing sauce *smiles*
