Finding a copycat Big Mac sauce that was actually close to the real thing wasn’t easy.

That stuff is so good they should bottle and sell it on its own. I just love it so much.

If you’ve ever been to McDonald’s and eaten a Big Mac you know first hand how great that sauce is.

Sometimes I even ask for it on other things I order there like their plain cheeseburgers and chicken sandwiches.

This copy cat recipe is the closest that I’ve gotten to anything actually tasting like true Big Mac sauce.

It has changed the game for me on now I eat burgers at home now.

I pretty much just smother them in this sauce and call it a day.

I absolutely love condiments and this one is at the top of the list for a favorite of mine.

This Big Mac sauce doesn’t have to be used on burgers either. It’s a family favorite recipe around here on lots of different things.

Try it for yourself and I’m sure you’ll love it just as much as we do.

Here are some other little tips I have for making a burger even better, too.

Can this Big Mac Sauce be made spicy?

Absolutely it can!

If you like some heat that’s a quick fix.

Get adding just a little bit of sriracha sauce to the other ingredients.

How much is up to you, that depends on how spicy you like your sauce.

I’d start off with a teaspoon, taste it, and add more if you’d like until it suits your taste.

What else is can I put copy cat Big Mac sauce on?

The real answer here is that you can put it on anything. It’s completely up to you.

May family loves this sauce to dip in fries but here are some other ideas:

  • Fries
  • Onion rings / blooming onions
  • Chicken sandwiches
  • Burgers
  • Chicken nuggets
  • Fish sticks

Place the unused sauce in an air tight container in the fridge and it will last for up to 3 days.
