McDonald’s Reveals Big Mac's 'Secret Sauce; Will You Make It at Home?

The video posted on McDonald's Canadian YouTube channel shows how the sauce and the burger can be prepared at home by the chain's executive chef.

There are some things that should stay under wraps: what your salary is, what your monthly mortgage payment is and some fast-food recipe secrets.

I was amazed by a recent YouTube video that appeared online that gives viewers the opportunity to see how that “special sauce” on one of America’s all-time favorites is made.

Sure we have known many of the ingredients in McDonald's famed Big Mac burger for years. Who can forget the famous jingle: Two all-beef patties, special sauce, lettuce, cheese, pickles, onions -- all on a sesame seed bun? 

But it turns out that the special sauce and the secret recipe of the Big Mac isn't a secret any longer. The video posted on McDonald's Canadian YouTube channel shows how the burger is made. 

Yep, you can watch as McDonald's Executive Chef Dan Coudreaut makes the burger in the comfort of his own kitchen in the video.

He adds a bit of this a bit of that, and voila!, the secret sauce is ready. And if that isn't enough, he also shares how to actually make a Big Mac itself -- at home. 

While I haven’t had a Big Mac in years, I’m not so sure this was such a good idea. I mean, why share it now and why do we need to know? Really how many of us are going to make a Big Mac at home? And if we did, would it really taste like a Big Mac? No, right?

I stopped by the and asked a few customers if would ever make the "special sauce" burger at home.

Juan Rodriguez said "It's easier to just pick one up" then to spent time in a hot kitchen making one.

Maria de Oliviera said she might consider it but not on a hot summer day.

 Will you watch the video and whip up a Big Mac at home?

I do make it at home occasionally, and there's nothing like nailing the combination perfectly. It's one of my decadent pleasures. For my money, the best sauce recipe is at Cooks.com. http://www.cooks.com/rec/view/0,1715,156190-225206,00.html. Now that all the ingredients have been revealed, I'm sure there will be improved third-party versions.
