Gluten-free Big Mac

Anyone who knows me, knows that I am a junk food junkie. BUT, I feel like a hypocrite.  I work hard to grow my own vegetables, shop at farmers markets and research where my food comes from. I raise chickens in my backyard for fresh eggs. Some people would even call me extreme! But there are times when I just love a good Big Mac.  There is something comforting in it.   I sit in my truck and stuff my face like I am committing a crime.  So to address my own guilt I have been researching how to make the wonderful special sauce at home.  Here is the recipe that I have found and made it gluten free so that all my gluten free friends can enjoy the simple pleasure of a Big Mac.

This recipe is an adapted recipe from

1/2 cup mayo                                                                                                                                       
2 tbsp french dressing, (I used Organic Ville French Organic Dressing)
3 tbsp sweet pickle relish (I found a gluten free, dye free relish at Trader Joes)
1 tbsp finely minced white onion
1 tsp white vinegar
pinch of salt

Mix all ingredients together, store in fridge until cool, it is best if left overnight to cool.  The original recipe called for sugar.  The French dressing and the sweet pickle relish that I used were so sweet that I did not add additional sugar.  If you taste it and it is too tart go ahead and add some sugar, just a teaspoon will work.

Want fries with that?  Of course!!! What Big Mac is complete without fries?  We fried up some gluten free fries from Trader Joes and served our burgers on Udi’s hamburger buns.  It was heaven…I even made myself some sweet tea.

So everyone sing with me “One locally raised beef pattie, special gluten free sauce, lettuce, cheddar cheese, pickles, onions on an Udi’s gluten free bun!”

I would love to hear how yours turns out, please leave me a comment.
