Here’s how to make the McDonald’s Beef Wellington with Pommes Puree from TikTok

What you’ll need:

Okay, so the video doesn’t specify exact measurements for the following ingredients so we’ve estimated some based on what we see in the video. Fortunately, a lot of the ingredients needed for this dish are things you may already have in your pantry.

  • Two packets of large Macca’s French fries.
  • Two double quarter-pounder burgers from McDonald’s.
  • Roughly a cup of milk.
  • Two to three cloves of garlic, chopped.
  • Roughly 100g of Spinach, fresh or frozen is fine.
  • 1-2 artichoke hearts.
  • 5-6 thin slices of prosciutto.
  • 2 sheets of puff pastry.


  • Preheat the oven to roughly 130 degrees.
  • Throw out (or separate) the buns and then remove the onions and pickles from the Macca’s burgers and put them in a bowl.
  • Sear the burger patties in olive oil.
  • While the pan is heating, add some milk, cream, chopped garlic, and two bay leaves into a deep pot. Once that’s all added and mixed, throw in your fries, a pinch of salt, and let it cook to boil.
  • Finely chop some spinach and artichokes and mix them together in a bowl. Sandwich this mixture in between your two seared patties with the cheesy sides facing towards the spinach and artichoke.
  • Once you’ve done that, wrap it up with thin slices of prosciutto. Place it in the centre of a sheet of puff pastry, brush the sheet with olive oil and then place another sheet on top.
  • Cover it with a bowl and mark it out with a nice so it looks like a semi-circle. Cut it out and trim the edges so it forms a smooth round shape. Dress the areas where the sheets connect with olive oil. Then, put it in the oven and check it until brown.
  • Dice up the pickles and onions from the burger and add them into a pot with oil and balsamic to crystallise on low heat. Add cubes of butter if you want. When this is cooked, make sure to add some chopped chives.
  • When your fries and milk have come to a boil, let it cool down a bit and run it through a blender. After that, put it back in the pot and let it cook on low. Then mash and serve.
  • Plate it all up and voila.
