WHILE McDonald’s is set to open 15 restaurants later this month, many of us will still struggle to get our fast food fix.

YouTube chef Rob Nixon, of Nicko’s Kitchen, has perfected the recipe for the quarter pounder with cheese and has been generous enough to share it online.

The recipe (see below) is incredibly simple and you’ll need just seven ingredients to achieve that signature taste.

The most important element is the topping which is made up of pickle, mustard, onion, ketchup and two slices of American cheese.

Sandwich in a toasted sesame bun and you’ll struggle to tell the difference between the original and the imposter.

Tasting his creation, Rob says: “So much better (than the original), yummo that is absolutely gorgeous.

“Please give them a go because you won’t be disappointed, the nom factor is out of control on this one.”

And it seems fans have been equally impressed, praising his recipe in the comments.

McDonald’s Quarter Pounder recipe


  • 113g ground beef 
  • Canola oil for frying
  • Salt and pepper for seasoning
  • Sesame seed bun
  • American cheese slices
  • Sliced pickle
  • Onion, finely chopped
  • Ketchup
  • Mustard


Roll your beef into a meatball shape and flatten out so that it’s slightly larger than the bread bun as it will shrink while cooking.

Heat your pan over a high heat and spray with canola oil, place the burger patty in and cook for two minutes each side adding salt and pepper to taste.

Toast the sesame seed bun and begin assembling beginning with a slice of the cheese, followed by the beef patty and a second slice of cheese, pickle and onion.

On the crown of the bun, on the crown add blobs of tomato ketchup and mustard, press down slightly and get stuck in.
