The sauce was actually the part I disliked back when I would eat them.

And this is news how?

The "secret" of their "secret sauce" has been revealed over and over through the years, which is presumably why this guy wasn't exactly an Ed Snowden of the kitchen... and apparently did not lose his job as a result.

It was only CALLED a "secret sauce" in certain ads, taking off an advertising note from "the Colonels's secret blend of 11 herbs and spices," which were merely black pepper, onion salt, celery salt, paprika, garlic powder, oregano, etc.

Always thought it was Thousand Island dressing. Sounds like it, too.

The Big Mac was likely inspired by the Big Boy burger that originated at Bob's Big Boy in California. That burger used a red relish sauce and mayonaise. Other Big Boy franchises used a thousand island sauce, and Frisch's Big Boy in Ohio uses tartar sauce. And now Burger King is bringing back their version, the Big King, which appears to have a thousand island sauce also. And in California, Carl's Jr. has a Superstar double burger which also has a red relish sauce with mayo. And they have a Big Carl with the thousand island. On the East coast, their Hardee's stores sometimes offer a Big Twin with that thousand island style sauce.

Yeah, it is mainly thousand island dressing (and mayo) but I found a copykat recipe that I like even better.

I always thought it was thousand Island dressing myself. Have not had a Big mac in years. I heard the "All beef patty" is not actually that though either. Ammonia, horse meat etc are inside. Not the healthiest food either way though.
