McDonald’s Reveals Big Mac's 'Secret Sauce; Will You Make It at Home?

The video posted on McDonald's Canadian YouTube channel shows how the sauce and the burger can be prepared at home by the chain's executive chef.

There are some things that should stay under wraps for Temecula residents: what your salary is, what your monthly mortgage payment is and some fast-food recipe secrets.

I was amazed by a recent YouTube video that appeared online that gives viewers the opportunity to see how that “special sauce” on one of America’s all-time favorites is made.

Sure we have known many of the ingredients in McDonald's famed Big Mac burger for years. Who can forget the famous jingle: Two all-beef patties, special sauce, lettuce, cheese, pickles, onions -- all on a sesame seed bun? 

But it turns out that the special sauce and the secret recipe of the Big Mac isn't a secret any longer. The video posted on McDonald's Canadian YouTube channel shows how the burger is made. 

Yep, you can watch as McDonald's Executive Chef Dan Coudreaut makes the burger in the comfort of his own kitchen in the video.

He adds a bit of this a bit of that, and voila!, the secret sauce is ready. And if that isn't enough, he also shares how to actually make a Big Mac itself -- at home. 

While I haven’t had a Big Mac in years, I’m not so sure this was such a good idea. I mean, why share it now and why do we need to know? Really how many of us are going to make a Big Mac at home? And if we did, would it really taste like a Big Mac? No, right?

I stopped by the and asked a few customers if would ever make the "special sauce" burger at home.

Juan Rodriguez said "It's easier to just pick one up" then to spent time in a hot kitchen making one.

Maria de Oliviera said she might consider it but not on a hot summer day.

 Will you watch the video and whip up a Big Mac at home?

Will The Patch ever hire someone to check the content posted on their web pages? I mean, it's appalling how many articles have typos, grammatical and spelling errors, and incorrect information!! Have some pride, please.

Im feeling the same way. No one wants to read 2 week old news on an internet site that can update 24 hours. Remove your 14 day old articles that serve no purpose anymore (like free coffee from Starbucks on the 4th of July) and put some more relevant stories/news up.
