Vegan McDonalds Big Mac




Vegan Big Mac BurgerBy following my thin patty method, you can take a store-bought plant-based patty and turn it into a McDonald’s Big Mac replica. I made my burgers using Beyond Meat ground beef and forming it into 2 thin patties for that fast-food feel.

Some readers also took a pack of Beyond Meat burgers and just sliced the patty in half to make two thin patties instead which makes it even cheaper and fewer calories!

I personally like to use Beyond Meat for this recipe, but feel free to use your favourite veggie burgers. And make sure you pair this vegan McDonalds burger with classic fries and a Coke for ultimate food McMemories.

Recipe type: Main
Cuisine: Vegan
Serves: 1 Burger
  1. Heat a grill pan over medium-high heat and cook burgers for 3-4 mins on each side until heated through (or according to package instructions if different).
  2. While the burgers are cooking, chop your onions, lettuce and pickles.
  3. To make the middle bun of the big mac, you can cut the top off the bun, so your bun has 3 parts.
  4. Lightly toast all three bun parts, by tossing them on the heat grill pan, face down, for 1 min, covered.
  5. To assemble the burger; spread ½ to 1 tbsp big mac sauce over the bottom piece of each bun.
  6. Then add some minced onion, iceburg lettuce, 1 vegan cheese slice, 1 burger patty and 3 pickle medallions (just like at the restaurant).
  7. Put the middle portion of the bun on next and spread with another 1 tbsp of big mac sauce, topped with onion, some lettuce,1 vegan cheese slice, 2nd burger patty, pickle medallions, and burger bun with more big mac sauce.
  8. To melt the cheese a bit, you can microwave each burger for 30 seconds or heat in pan with a cover.
  9. Serve with a side of fries.

  • I can’t believe how spot on the Mac sauce is! It’s so good, I honestly couldn’t get enough of it!

  • I love that I could cook a beyond meat patty, slice it in half and have 2 patties for the big mac. A pack of two beyond meat burgers could make two big macs so it was way cheaper than buying two big macs at McDonald’s which was the selling out for my non-vegan family. Everyone enjoyed the big macs! with a side of fries and coke!

  • Milena Basta says:

    What a great recipe!! And so easy to make I was amazed. My non vegan son confirmed it tastes like the real deal 🙂 Candice, I shared this recipe with my Facebook Vegan group here in Belgrade, Serbia, and everyone went crazy for it. Tagged your Youtube channel video 😉

    Thank you and keep ’em coming! 😀

  • I crave McDonalds Big Mac and I haven’t had it in 8 years. This taste like the real thing, but better
    She always makes the best recipes!!

    • Dorothy says:

      I was totally looking for a reply from a former meat eater. I don’t eat beef anymore and I don’t eat at McDonald’s but I want a Big Mac suddenly like I have never wanted anything before!!

  • Nicole Hatmaker says:

    Loved this recipe! Finally I can satisfy my old favorite Big Mac with my new vegan lifestyle! Thanks for the inspiration. Mine turned out soooo good!

    Ps: I just used the pre-shaped beyond patties, and split the two patties into four. Still delish!

  • Christopher says:

    Hate admitting that I miss McDonald’s since going Vegan but here we are. This recipe cured that craving.

    • Thanks for sharing Christopher. This is one reason why I started making vegan versions of fast-food classics.. the cravings many people get. We really can’t feel guilty for certain cravings, but what we can do is find vegan alternatives to cure those cravings when they come up 🙂

  • I’ve held a grudge against mcdonalds for YEARS for not having a veggie big mac. Leave it to Candice to give us the mac we needed. F U Mcdonalds

    • It upsets me that McDonalds still haven’t come out with a veggie/vegan burger for others looking to eat plant-based when eating fast food. I’m just happy to share this super easy recipe for those looking to make fast food faster than the fast food drive thru!

  • Ugh it was so good, don’t know if I’ll go back to McDonald’s if this is so easy and tasty! Highly recommended!

  • Holy frig this was good!! The Big Mac sauce with beyond meat burgers really did remind me of a Big Mac! I made 2 – one for me and one for my mom and she loved it (she’s not vegan)

    • YAY! I’m so happy you loved it just as much as I did! I’m so happy your non-vegan mom loved it! Every meatless meal can make a difference and by showing how tasty plant-based meals are really helps 🙂

  • Sandy Kelston says:

    Made this last night
    Delicious!! Sauce tastes like what I remember it tasted like!
    Used Beyond patties and sliced them in half
    Didn’t have onions so used green onion instead
    Will def make again!

    • Thanks Sandy! Oh I love the idea of slicing a beyond patty in half and using them instead! It actually makes the burger cheaper if you only use one patty and slice in half! I use the beyond meat ground so I can form my burgers to be thin but this works if you buy the package of Beyond Meat burgers! Great tip!

    • Nicole Elocin says:

      This was so awesome. All the non-vegans in my life couldn’t believe how good this was. I’m on burger duty for the next family game night. Thank You!
