They say that some things are beyond perfection. The iconic Big Mac is supposedly one of them - a lily that shouldn't be gilded, a Mona Lisa of mince, bread and delicious sauce. They said the world was flat, but now we have Mini Muffin Tin Big Macs, simplicity incarnate, bite-sized bliss nestled neatly in a muffin tin.

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 180°C/360°F
  2. Grease a muffin tin and place 100g round balls of dough in four of the muffin tin holes. Sprinkle them with sesame seeds.
  3. Fashion the burger pieces into small burger patties and press them into the eight remaining holes - make sure they are a tiny bit too big for the holes as the meat tends to shrink, so they should fit to exactly the right size for the buns - satisfying much?
  4. Bake for 15 minutes until the burger buns have doubled in size and sound hollow when tapped.
  5. While the buns are in the oven whisk all the ingredients together for the sauce, adding more salt or sugar according to your taste.
  6. When out of the oven cut the burger buns into three pieces. Slather the bottom bun with the sauce, followed by some chopped onion, finely shredded lettuce, a piece of burger cheese, a burger from the tin and some pickles. Add the second piece of the bun and repeat these steps, finishing with the final top piece of the bun.
  7. Your tiny burgers are now complete! Have two, or even all four! Enjoy yourself!
