what he is trying to do is make there special sauce that they use on Big mac's.

Not sure if this is the one he is trying to create but it does also call for miricale whip dressing.

Just wanted to make it clear he is not trying to make thousand island

My favorite!!!!!

This stuff is great. Its just a little heavier on the vinegar, thats all. To me, regular mayonaise tastes like lard.

Try it, you'll like it!!!!!

You beat me to it!

One day I bought mayo, thinking it was the same as miracle whip, bleh, tasteless, no zip, so I added vinegar, presto, salad dressing (miracle whip).

It tastes much better, and zippier with vinegar!

Shots, Thousand Island is the "special sauce" on a Big Mac.

Shots, With all due respect, I worked for Mickey D's when I was a kid. Right now my best friends' wife manages one. They used Thousand Island then, and they still use it now. I can't explain why the recipes are different...:shk:

Maybe they use something else "Across the pond"?

On the subject of food "Across the pond", what the heck is Vegemite?

Beer guy, it's not thousand island dressing, I love that as well but it's deffo not that.

Vegemite? Do you mean Marmite? It's revolting. It's a sticky brown spread made from yeast extract and tastes much worse than it sounds. People usually eat it on toast, God knows why.

As for Miracle Whip... It's alright. Definitely good to use for slaws and pasta salads. It gives it something extra that regular mayo just doesn't have.

I don't really like it on sandwiches, though. Too sweet. It's pretty good though, and I really can't imagine using it just as a salad dressing alone.

I make my banana bread using a cup of miracle whip in it, though. You can't taste it, and it makes it ssoooooooooo moist and good. It's a must

That is where the difference comes in the ingredients are not the same. If they used thousand island it would be false advertising too call it a special sauce :shk:

It's not too far off from Thousand Island dressing, though. I think you may just have to add a wee bit more onions, pickle and vinegar/sugar. They are quite similar, but different.

I don't know, that Miracle Whip is too sweet.
When I eat a salad or sandwich I like my dressing/spread to taste savory not sweet.

I love mayo. I put enough on a sandwich where it's oozing out the sides.


Homemade mayo is even better.

Peace

My wife buys Miracle Whip all the time. So does my mother. It is good---enough. I WAS satisfied with it until I tried to make something (ranch chicken salad)I had tried elsewhere. It was too flat, almost no flavor--very bland.. When I checked with the folks who gave me the recipe, they said to use mayonaise. I tried it again. Perfect. Straight from the jar, Mayonaise has a richer flavor. Mixed with anything, it is an improvement. We keep Mayo in the house now for me and Miracle Whip for my wife. When I am in a situation where I must use Miracle Whip, it tastes like I am on a bland diet.
By the way, if you really want a good hamburger, skip the McDonalds clone you are trying to make and experiment. What I have found is to mix dry mustard, salt, pepper, garlic powder , basil, and oregano in the raw ground meat with a few drops of hot sauce and cook it. Put the meat on rye or pumpernickle bread and garnish with mustard, onion, and dill pickles. Too spicy for my wife, but I love them.

Factory lad,

Sorry. I'm slow, but you lost me at the part where your burgers suck so bad, and yet you are trying to solve the problem by augmenting them with sauces.

I am on the verge of shipping you some steaks.

I go into the butcher's and tell 'em what I want, and how thick to cut it. T bones for 5$ a pound, if you buy in bulk.

I have three grills in my back yard. One LPG, one charcoal, and a woodburning smoker.

Maybe we should start a fundraiser for you or something.

It just kills me to hear that your spending your efforts on copying a chain sauce.

It sounds like you should be breeding better beef instead.

Dr Strangecraft, don't get me wrong...The meat over here is fine, if I fancy a steak, I can't go wrong with my local butcher or a nice piece of Aberdeen Angus steak from Marks & Spencers. Stilton sauce, thicky cut chips (er...I mean fries
) and onions rings...Top it off with a pint and that's good eating.

Problem is, I just don't like the taste of burgers. Apart from the old mad corporate clowns...Something about them. I had a big mac the other day, I hadn't had one for a while...It was sooo good. The taste of the special sauce, gerkhins, processed cheese (american cheese I think it's called in the US)...Everything that you shouldn't eat inbetween two buns.

I wanna recreate that in *slightly*more of a healthier way and deny the clown some of my hard earned cash

My Fellow Americ.......Sorry. I'll start again.

My Fellow Brits. Please let's not import any more of those radical Yank foodstuffs. Colt 45 and Bud was bad enough but do come on.........

Make do with Hellman Mayonaise or Heinz 57 Salad Cream/Mayonaise.

At a pinch you could put tomato puree in mayo to make Thousand Island dressing. It would look like that crap they put in a Big Mac, but taste a lot better.

No no no! It's the ultimate quest...A bit like trying to find the brand of vinegar used at the chippy, it's not malt vinegar, it's not Sarsons...What the hell is that stuff? It's definitely not malt vinegar and water, I've tried that.

I use plenty of Hellman's in my tuna sarnies...

I WILL make Big Mac sauce..It is my destiny!
