Big Mac Sloppy Joes

Big Mac Sloppy Joes are a delicious one pan meal with a McDonald’s Big Mac Secret Sauce Copycat made in 30 minutes. You’ll never need the drive-thru again.
Classic Sloppy Joes are so popular on this site that there are over 35 versions of Sloppy Joe Recipes you all have enjoyed. Just when you might think there can’t possibly be another way to enjoy Sloppy Joes, here is another recipe to add to the collection!

Big Macs are a nostalgic memory, but you might not often find yourself going through the drive-thru. You can enjoy classic restaurant flavors at home with the ability to control the salt and quality of the ingredients. This is part of the reason why Copycat Recipes receive so much love on the site, you get to enjoy the flavors of eating out without any of the actual going to fast food restaurants.

This Sloppy Joe makes good use of the McDonald’s Big Mac Sauce (Copycat) recipe. You can use it to re-create the beloved Big Mac, but if you’re cooking at home you don’t really need the convenience of a portable burger. You can enjoy all the same flavors with saucy ground beef, which might be messier to eat, but so worth it for the cheesy saucy goodness.

Most Sloppy Joe recipes taste great on a crusty brioche bun, but given the copycat feel of this recipe a sesame seed bun would be the right way to go. You could absolutely serve this as a single layer sandwich, just like most other Sloppy Joes. However, if you really want an authentic Big Mac experience with these Big Mac Sloppy Joes, you won’t regret making it a true double decker sandwich.

4 sesame seed hamburger buns
8 slices of cheddar cheese
1 cup shredded lettuce
1/2 cup dill pickle slices


Prepare the Sloppy Joe Mixture:

In a large skillet over medium-high heat, cook the ground beef and chopped onion until the beef is browned and the onion is tender. Drain excess fat.
Stir in ketchup, mustard, Worcestershire sauce, brown sugar, salt, and pepper. Simmer for 10 minutes until the mixture is thick and flavorful.

Make the Special Sauce:

In a small bowl, combine mayonnaise, French dressing, sweet pickle relish, minced onion, white vinegar, sugar, and salt. Mix until smooth and set aside.

Assemble the Sloppy Joes:

Preheat your oven to broil. Split the hamburger buns and place them on a baking sheet, cut side up. Toast under the broiler for 1-2 minutes until golden brown.
Place a slice of cheddar cheese on the bottom half of each toasted bun.
Spoon a generous amount of the Sloppy Joe mixture over the cheese.
Add another slice of cheddar cheese on top of the Sloppy Joe mixture.
Top with shredded lettuce and dill pickle slices.
Drizzle with the special sauce.
Place the top half of the bun on top.
