Copycat "BIG MAC", meatless-style

Dev and I are at 'WEEK 3' of our 'meatless' experiment. (Although, we caved 2 nights ago and got a hotdog at the Central. Whoops.) Anyways, we had a craving for a BIG MAC, so we decided to attempt making them using veggie burgers. As it turns out, they turned out pretty tasty! The sauce was pretty spot-on and the texture of the veggie patty was surprisingly comparable to a McDonald's patty - yep... questionable ingredients, no? ;-)
COPYCAT Veggie BIG MAC4 Morning Star Grilled Patties
1 T dried onions, rehydrated
shredded lettuce
4 slices Kraft American Cheese slices
4 sesame seed buns
CopyCat McDonald's Special Sauce
1/2 C Mayo
2 T Kraft French Dressing
4 tsp sweet pickles
1 T minced onion
1 tsp white vinegar
1 tsp sugar
1/8 tsp salt

Combine special sauce ingredients and refrigerate for and hour - or overnight. Re-hydrate dried onions (key ingredient!) with warm water for 15 min. Drain.

Heat patties per instructions. Cut the top half of 2 buns to make the 'middle' bigmac bun. Spread with butter, toast and set aside.

Top bottom bun with 1 T special sauce, rehydrated onion, lettuce, 1 slice of cheese, patty and middle bun.

THERE YOU GO! This was a hefty burger - both Dev and I only could only finish half. Next time, ONE patty will suffice. ;-)
