The "bread coating" is shake and bake pork seasoning and the sauce is a-1: thick hearty. It's best when you ditch the bun and other things. Just pair it with mashed potatoes and brown gravy. I know who made this recipe, and they this is the way it's best done.

Can someone explain what a “crispy coating mix” is? Is it something that can be purchased ready made or is there a separate recipe for the mix? This recipe is incomplete. Thanks

I was not a fan of this recipe. Note: I used Shake 'n Bake for pork.

Umm...no. That has absolutely nothing to do with actual McDonald’s burgers. There’s no special sauce, it’s just frozen ground beef patties for 1.6oz “reg” meat or the new never frozen quarter pounder which is the same thing just not frozen. They are pressed on a pressure/temperature clamp grill and seasoned with salt and pepper on one side when finished cooking. If you want an authentic McDonalds burger, get a piece of ground beef, form it into a patty, about as thin as possible then freeze it. Place one frying pan on the stove and get it hot, like 500 degrees, set another one on another burner and do the same. Place the patty on one pan and as quick as possible set the bottom of the other on top of it and hold it under as much pressure as you can for about a minute. Pull it up and salt and pepper it as soon as possible before removing it from the pan. That’s authentic McDonalds.

The only reason I put a one star on this recipe is not because it's bad it's because I don't know what the coating mix is it's not on recipe.thanks

Really good. I used Heinz 57 and homemade coating mix.

Only used the 2 tablespoons of seasoning in the A1 sauce and they turned out perfect! Even better to put them on a rack above the pan and they come out even juicier

I am disappointed that this recipe is unclear about which seasoning mix to buy. Apparently I chose the wrong one because our burgers ended up in the garbage.

Always makes a perfect, juicy burger. In love each time and company loves it thoroughly.
