A McDonald's Quarter Pounder With Nothing But Aldi Products
By Chase Shustack
First introduced in the 1970s, the Mcdonald’s Quarter Pounder stands as one of their most recognizable menu items. However, even the biggest Quarter Pounder fans don’t want to take time (and money) out of their day to go buy them, but luckily there’s a way to recreate the popular burger right at home — you just need to stock up at Aldi first.
TikTok user and fitness influencer Bec Hardgrave shared a video on the subject, stating that the first Aldi product you need is their "Specially Selected Sliced Brioche Burger Buns," which taste nearly identical to McDonald’s. Other ingredients like lean ground beef, pickles, smoked cheddar cheese, and onions can also be found at Aldi, though no specific brands are named.
Once you have all your Aldi’s ingredients, Hardgrave instructs viewers to take 100 grams (or about 3.5 ounces) of lean beef, press it down flat in a hot pan, and top it with the cheddar cheese to let it melt. Once your burger has cooked, top it with lettuce, pickles, chopped onions, ketchup, and mustard.
