Yes it’s another McDonalds food hack. They have so many items that can be made vegan, I don’t know why they don’t just become a vegan restaurant. I mean honestly, the vegan versions actually taste way better than I ever remember McDonalds actually tasting.
The item im veganizing today is the Big Mac, McDonalds signature burger. 2 all beef patties, special sauce, lettuce, cheese, pickles, onions on a sesame seed bun, is now 2 all vegan patties, special sauce, lettuce, vegan cheese, pickles, onions on a sesame seed bun!
Obviously, you’ll need some vegan friendly sesame seed buns (Van De Kamps). However, instead of one full bun, you’ll actually need one and a half buns. I use one sesame seed top bun and 2 bottom buns. One of those bottom buns will obviously be in the middle.
Also, you’ll need to make some vegan special sauce. It’s 1000 island, like about 95% of all other special sauces out there. Take some vegan mayo (I use just mayo), some ketchup, a tiny squirt of mustard, and pickled relish. Mix them all together and you have just created your special sauce.
Other items you’ll need for this other than your patties and cheese are dill pickle chip slices, chopped lettuce, and chopped onions. Have these items ready so you can prepare your buns for the patties.
Spread some sauce on to the top bun and the bottom bun. After that, take 2 vegan patties (I use boca brand vegan burgers) and grill them up. I also season the patties with seasoned salt while they’re grilling. This gives them some proper “burger” flavors. When there’s about 2 minutes left of cook time, place 2 slices of vegan american cheese on top of each patty (I use toffuti brand).
Once the patties are done cooking, place one on the bottom bun and then top with the middle bun; then place the other patty on top of the middle bun. Now top that patty with your pickles, onions, a little more sauce, and your chopped lettuce. Then put on your sesame seed bun top and you’re all set and ready!
That’s another McDonalds item veganized! And like I said before, it tastes so much better than McDonalds. I’m sure some of that flavor is knowing that I didn’t harm one animal making this! Peace, Love, Grub!
