Today’s Sandwich: “Big Malc” (Homemade)
Notes: As it turns out, the reason McDonald’s hamburgers (with some exceptions) aren’t very good isn’t because their team of food scientists haven’t worked out some delicious flavor combinations; they have. All you have to do is use fresh ingredients. Today’s sandwich uses 1/3 pound of ground sirloin, divided in half, pressed thin, and grilled, a homemade “special sauce” that combines almost equal parts mayonnaise, ketchup, and sweet relish, shredded iceberg lettuce, sliced processed American cheese, sliced dill pickles, and minced white onions, piled high on a sesame seed bun (with an extra bottom serving as the interstitial bun) grilled in butter. The result is as delicious as it is tall; a burger you have to put your whole face into.
