Homemade Thousand Island Sandwich Spread

When I was in college back in the 1990’s, I worked at McDonald’s.  I usually worked at the front counter, front drive-thru, or back drive through.  Hubby knew I was someone special because I would take an order, take money, and be eating my dinner in the office next to the drive-thru all at the same time.  He couldn’t believe I could multi-task like that.

One of the great benefits of working at McDonald’s was the free food.  As a poor college student, it was greatly appreciated.  I loved Big Macs and chicken nuggets with hot mustard sauce and sweet and sour sauce.  Yes, I know chicken nuggets from McDonald’s are not real chicken nuggets.

The special sauce on the Big Mac’s was one of my favorite parts of the sandwich.  I’ve made a homemade version of the special sauce.  It’s absolutely delicious.
