The BEST Homemade Big Mac Sauce

What would a Big Mac be with the sauce, right? And whether you’re making a homemade version like I did here, or the TikTok trendy BIG MAC Smash Tacos here, you’re gonna need the sauce!

According to the McMenu which you can find on the Internet Archive, you’re going to need both some Miracle Whip and French dressing among other ingredients to make your sauce. The French dressing will give it some of the signature tanginess and color, while the Miracle Whip will provide some of the sweetness. (If you only have mayo, then by all means go for mayo like I did. You won’t notice the difference.)
