I am a total sucker for McDonald’s Filet-O-Fish. And I have been going more lately per the kiddie’s request. Okay, twist my arm… I guess I could order a Filet-O-Fish… make that a combo meal… and Super Size it… please.
I love it so much that I wanted to have it all the time. So I came up with this recipe that is almost better, and probably healthier, than the original.
Buns, these are whole wheat, see… healthier.
Cheese, melted in the microwave or oven for a short time.
Fish Sticks, Costco’s frozen fish sticks are Yum. Cook per directions and layer 3 across the cheesy buns.
Tartarish Sauce: 1 cup mayo, 1 tsp dry mustard or dijon, 1 1/2 tsp lemon juice, pinch of cayenne. You can add the chopped up dill pickle if you want, but I despise pickles.
Plop it all together and you have a fabulous sandwich fit for a Queen. Eat your heart out Mickey D’s.
Have fun eating homemade. You can usually save a few dollars and skip the fries, I know I should.

Jennifer – You are welcome! I know, it’s sooo good. And I LOVE your idea for a fun homemade McD’s meal.
Oh My God !!! This was great.. wow thank you so very much. I to LOVE McD’s fish fillet so i was very excited when i found this and I finally got to try it today. I’ll have to make sure i don’t make it to much so i don’t get tired of it :)
While I was making it I was thinking it would be neat to use the actually happy meal boxes and make like a copycat meal out of it one night or afternoon with my daughter. Just cook her up some chicken nuggets and give her some fruit it would be great :)
