2. Prep your buns. Take the bottom of a regular bun, and feed the top to the birds, use it as a coaster, or just throw it away—it's not needed in this recipe.
3. Prep the beef patties. Flatten two patties to about 3-1/2 inches (85mm) in diameter, and about 1/4 inch (8mm) thick.

4. Prep the toppings.
Mince about a quarter of a small white onion and set aside.
Shred or chop an iceberg lettuce leaf into thin strips.

5.Cook the beef patties. You can cook it however you wish and to your preference on a on doneness (rare to well done).

6. Toast the 3 buns. While the patties are frying, gently toast your buns. Do this to the both sides of the regular bun bottom and toast the sesame bun as usual (the inner sides).

7. Sauce the toasted buns. Take the bottom of the regular bun and the bottom of the sesame bun and put 1 tablespoon of the sauce on them.

8. Add lettuce, cheese, and pickles. Grab a big pinch of the sliced lettuce and plop it onto each sauced bun.
On the bottom bun (the sesame), place a slice of cheese on top of the lettuce. On the regular bun, put the pickle slices on the lettuce.

9. Load on the meaty goodness. Stack each burger patty on top of the condiments (cheese and pickles) on each layer. Top both layers with minced onions.

10. Stack it up. Pick up, carefully, the regular bun (with everything) and stack it on the bottom layer.
Place the top of the sesame bun on top of the burger.

11. Enjoy your homemade Big Mac!
