Watch McDonald's Executive Chef Make a Big Mac from Sort Of Scratch
Photo by rob_rob2001 I'm always taken aback when I remember Big Macs only have one slice of cheese
Say what you will about fast food, but McDonald's has long unlocked some arcane proportion of fat, salt and beef that gives their burgers just the right amount of addictivity that you just can't cooking for yourself.
A burger on the grill is nice and all, but does it hit the spot when you're craving a Big Mac? Hell no, and that's never been more apparent than in this video.
McDonald's Executive Chef Dan Coudreaut (and CIA grad) cooks a Big Mac from "home" just to show you how wholesome it is, but while the outcome is fine, I would still rather go and grab one of those cardboard boxes.
Man, you know what? I'll be right back. I'm going to make a run.
