The recipe below is about as close as you can get to real thing, except I used a higher quality meat and likely you will too.

Make the “secret sauce” a day before you want to serve the burgers for the flavors to incorporate well. I have not bought yellow American cheese – maybe ever, before this. Do not substitute if you want that Big Mac flavor.
