Ok, so we all have our own quirky little cheeseburger ways. I love any cheeseburger, any time of the day.
Well, I say that but I there are have certain condiments that are crucial or I won’t be real happy.
At the very least cheese, mayo, and pickles. When I make my own, it generally has more stuff packed on it that a lot of times a fork is required, like here, here and here. Look, I love a lot of shit on mine. I can’t help it.
However, I’ve always loved Big Macs, obviously the inspiration behind this dip.
I can remember being 17 years old, and although I absolutely loved Big Macs, sometimes I would feel so guilty eating them (I thought I was too chunky) that I would negotiate with myself and NOT get the fries thinking that made it ok.
Of course, then I wouldn’t get to actually enjoy it because I didn’t have the fries to dip in my very favorite mixture of mayonnaise and ketchup. That’s the whole package.
My 17 year old self was such a moron.
Have you noticed that as good as Burger King’s burgers have always been, the fries don’t quite measure up to McDonald’s?
This has all the taste of a Big Mac in dip form. And it’s really easy to make. You will notice I didn’t add pickles, but you can always chop some up and throw them on there.
Here’s your printable-
- 1/2 onion, diced very small

- Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
- Bring oil over medium heat and add onions, saute for about 3 minutes.
- Add ground beef, stir, brown and drain the fat.
- In a 9x9 (roughly) glass baking dish spread the ground beef on the bottom.
- Sprinkle with cheese and bake for 30 minutes, until cheese has melted.
- Top with lettuce and tomatoes and drizzle with Thousand Island (to your preference).
- Serve with chips or crackers.
