I've written before that Amish cooks love "copycat" recipes: whether that be a recipe for homemade "Pizza Hut breadsticks," or homemade "Heinz" catsup. But here's something I hadn't run into before: Big Mac Dressing. This looks like an attempt to mimic the McDonald's "special sauce." I'm not sure which Amish cook this comes from. As I wrote yesterday, I get all sorts of recipes from Amish women (and men) from all over the place. Typically I do a pretty good job of keeping the envelopes with the recipe, but with this one - beyond the pretty handwriting - I have no clue where it came from. The author does say that this recipe is "very good on sandwiches", so I am assuming you can slather some over your burger and it'd give it a nice zing. The recipe is a bit odd....I am not sure what she means by "dry onions" in this case. If anyone has an ideas, let us know.
- ¼ cup French dressing
- 1 cup Miracle Whip
- ½ teaspoon salt
- 4 tablespoons dry onions
- ¼ cup sweet relish
- Soak onions for 15 minutes in boiling water.
- Mix onions and everything else.
- Chill and spread onto sandwiches.
