Aw, you know. "Two all-beef patties, special sauce, lettuce, cheese, pickles, onions - all on a sesame seed bun."
But the sauce, the sauce.
McD's Canadian chef spills the beans, uum sauce recipe
Over the last couple of years, McDonald's has been trotting out local farmers in its television ads presumably in an effort to appear less like a colossal multinational corporation and more like Ma and Pa's farm stand up yonder. This latest effort emphasizes that the assembly line burgers are actually just like something you would whip up in your own kitchen.
The video shows executive chef Dan Coudreaut making a version of the Big Mac at home. "We have a question here from Christine," he begins, "What is in your special sauce?" To emphasize the folksy experience, Coudreaut strips off his white chef's coat and "has some fun cooking" in his regular shirt and jeans.
He cuts to the chase with that magic sauce. According to Coudreaut, it contains plain old mayo from the grocery store, sweet pickle relish, yellow mustard, onion powder, white wine vinegar, garlic powder, and paprika.
Our national nightmare of enduring curiosity is over.
The Internet wins again!
Oh, thanks Canada....Luv y'a
PS...I haven't had a Big Mac in over 20 years...Just thought we could use a laugh!
