I love making fast food dupes at home. They’re fun to recreate and you can customize to your heart’s content!
If you’re a lover of the McDonald’s Big Mac, buy these products the next time you’re at the grocery store. They will help you create a Big Mac dupe at home that is even better than the real thing. Plus, you won’t have to put on pants and leave the house or dish out $35 on DoorDash to enjoy this iconic fast food burger.
- Orowheat Golden Seeded Hamburger Rolls
The best seeded hamburger from our hamburger bun taste test will make your homemade Big Mac even better than a McDonald’s Big Mac because this bread is top-notch. It’s soft, pillowy, and sturdy. Bonus points if you warm it in the microwave for a second to make this homemade McDonald’s Big Mac nice and steamy.

- Moran’s 73/27 Beef Patties
The McDonald’s Big Mac has a super thin patty and, sadly, the grocery store has not really started stocking up on that style of burger. We recommend using one of the best hamburger patties from our frozen hamburger patty taste test for a slightly thicker but just as delicious version. It won’t be a perfect Big Mac Dupe, but it will taste even more elite and you’ll love it.

- Kraft American Deluxe Deli Slices
We tried them all and can confirm that Kraft makes the best American cheese—but don’t just opt for the standard Kraft American cheese. You need to buy Deluxe. Add a slice of this stuff to your homemade McDonald’s Big Mac and thank me later. You literally cannot have a McDonald’s Big Mac without cheese.

- Great Value Kosher Sliced Dill Pickles
I know, I know. You’re like, “Jordan, McDonald’s uses pickle chips!” This is true. Unfortunately, most store bought pickle chips are simply not as thin as the version McDonald’s uses. My recommendation is to cut these Great Value slices into quarters so they’re approximately the same size as the McDonald’s Big Mac pickles. The texture will be spot-on.

- J.L. Kraft Special Burger Sauce
Most burger sauces contain pickles but, as people on the internet are quick to inform you, Big Mac sauce does not. Neither does this top sauce from our best burger sauce taste test, making it the perfect Big Mac sauce dupe. It’s not Thousand Island dressing. It’s more horseradish-y. This sauce really captures the essence of Big Mac sauce and we’re huge fans of it in the Sporked office.
