To begin you will need to portion out the ground beef into 8 VERY THIN patties.

Then season them on both sides with salt and pepper.

Before heading out to the grill, you will want to slather the buns with mayo.
This will help them brown and add great flavor.

And I know what you're thinking, "Big Macs have sesame seed buns."  Personally I love a brioche bun on a burger, so that's what I use.  If you're a purist in the realm of burgerdom feel free to go sesame.  This is a judgement free zone.  We are all friends here.

Time to cook the beef!
Over a medium/high heat grill the patties for 3-4 minutes.
(I did 3)


Then flip and cook for another 3-4.
(Again I did 3)

Now I turn the heat off, place a slice of cheese on each patty, and put the buns on the grill to toast.
Once the cheese is melted and you have grill marks on the bread you can remove them from the grill.

Time to assemble the burger!
Place a bottom portion of your bun on the plate.
Add some thousand dressing and shredded lettuce.
Then place the patty on top.
