To make it taste even more authentic, make sure to salt and pepper the patties (which incidently weigh 1/10th of a pound before cooking), for the onions, take dried minced onions (the kind you buy with other seasonings) and reconstitute them with cold water about two hours before you are going to use them. Also, mix some mayo and a very small amount of relish into the thousand island dressing. Remember not to grease the griddle when toasting the buns and also to weigh them down with a metal cookie sheet while toasting. I worked for McDonlad's for many years, and these are some of the tricks to making a "Mac" at home.
