This is what editor Kelly Brinker thought when the sauce was only available in Australia in limited numbers for a short time. She wanted to make Big Mac sauce herself, and with little effort. Ultimately, she managed a recipe with just seven ingredients - allegedly without any deductions in taste. By the way, the said, most pinned McDonald's Big Mac Sauce Pin leads you to their article on the "mom deals" page, while the pin with the original ingredients is nowhere to be found ... which is once again proof for us that someone had published a well-kept secret!

And here it is:

  • 1/2 cup of mayonnaise
  • 2 tbsp French dressing
  • 4 teaspoons dill cucumber relish
  • 1 tbsp chopped white onions
  • 1 teaspoon white wine vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon of sugar
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt

According to Kelly, all ingredients should be mixed together in a bowl. Then you just have to cover them with a cloth and put them in the refrigerator overnight and take them out to stir them occasionally. Then enjoy the sauce and consume as soon as possible.
