Burgers, basic hamburger (2 all-beef patties, special sauce, lettuce, cheese, pickle, onion on a sesame seed bun) 1 Condiments, salad dressings, MacDonald's secret sauce 1


This “top-secret recipe” has been public information since 1970, when it was leaked from a McDonald’s Manager’s Handbook published in 1969. It was meant to be used only as an emergency recipe for restaurants that ran out of the pre-made sauce used on the Big Macs.  McDonalds quickly removed the page to prevent theft by other burger chains, but it was too late…..

¼ cup mayonnaise

3 tablespoons French salad dressing

½ tablespoon sweet pickle relish

1-1/2 tablespoons dill pickle relish

1 teaspoon sugar

1/8 teaspoon salt


  1. Mix all ingredients, and stir well in a small container.
  1. Microwave on high for 25 seconds, and stir well again.
