Instant Pot Big Mac With Big Mac Sauce

Sharing is caring!

Have you ever tried making your own Big Mac at home? We have and today on The Instant Pot table I’m excited to share how we make delicious and easy burgers using the Instant Pot. Cooking burger patties in the pressure cooker has never been easier!

We are fan’s of the Big Mac however with a large family to feed, a trip to MacDonalds would cost a ton of money. That’s why I love this homemade Big Mac recipe which the whole family can enjoy!

My husband used to work at McDonalds so I have the advantage of knowing all about the Big Mac Sauce……..read on to learn more.

WHAT IS BIG MAC SAUCE

Big Mac Sauce is very similar to thousand Island sauce or thousand Island dressing. In a nutshell, big mac sauce is made from mayonnaise, sweet pickle relish, yellow mustard, and ketchup along with vinegar, garlic powder, onion powder, and paprika. We use Thousand Island dressing for our Homemade Big Mac Burger and it tastes fantastic!

  1. I don’t have an instant pot but I know my son would love this special sauce on burgers or chicken. I have not been to Mcdonald’s lately but this do it yourself is even better

  2. Holy smokes! Those look delicious. The Big Mac is my all-time favorite burger, so I am definitely giving this a try.

  3. This is the best recipe I’ve seen in a long time! We all eat Big Macs like candy (when we eat out). I can’t wait to make these for us. Yummo!

  4. I’d rather this homemade option. You can monitor what is in the meat and make sure it doesn’t taste like cardboard.

  5. I’ve never actually tried a Big Mac before. This looks really similar though. I’m sure my husband would love it. He likes the Big Macs.
