Mcdonalds breakfast
278

Aibu that you can't beat a McDonald's breakfast? Especially after a 13 hour night shift when you snuggle in bed and it's frosty and cold outside on a winters morning.
I know they are terribly unhealthy but a sausage and egg mcmuffin.. Yum!!
Aibu?

Am I being unreasonable?

Everything McDonalds does is a cheap approximation of something you can get better somewhere else.

Burgers. Fries. Coffee. Breakfasts. Yes, it's sometimes convenient and yes, it's always cheap, but all of it can be beaten by much better alternatives.

We had one this morning- double sausage with no egg mcmuffin and 2 hashbrowns each and a lovely toffee latte. I couldn't care less about the nutritional value when it tastes so good.

@PowerhouseOfTheCell

I always ask for a BBQ sauce for dipping the hash brown Wink I can’t believe they still haven’t brought back the bacon and egg bagel Sad truly the worst covid casualty

My heart still aches for their bagels and for the breakfast wrap.

Given the choice between maccies and Toby carvery breakfast though. I'm Toby til I die.

I think you deserve to eat what you want after a 13 hour shift..I can sympathise as I do 12 hour, sometimes back to back..when I come in after shift I like a pizza and a glass of wine...

I remember the syrup and pancakes being amazing! and the hash browns. I haven't had one in years but they are delicious.

I once had to have a day off work because of painful trapped gas after I had a McDonald’s breakfast. Couldn’t stand up. My doctor friend suspected an ectopic pregnancy.

I had a phase of them many years ago, usually on hungover mornings. Last one I had (more recently and no hangover) was horrible.

All those saying how they go to their local farm shop, well that's nice dear but someone of us live in the middle of London!

As for me I miss the bagels and the wraps, always had them without the sausage/bacon as don't eat little piggies, but the pork from McDonald's is British and from RSPCA assured farms. The eggs are also free range, but according to some conspiracy theorist on the thread that's just evil Ronald talking bollocks.

You are totally right, OP. I promised myself one this morning after a tricky weekend, then got held up and thought I was going to be too late.

Pulled into the drive-thru at 10.58 - hooray!

YANBU - sausage and egg mcmuffin, hash brown and Tropicana. Wonderful.

I recently tried their bacon and cheese flatbread - all kinds of delicious. Want one now.

I miss their hash browns! I don't like the muffins, pancakes or rolls so hoping that they will bring bagels and wraps back soon. Its not worth the journey or delivery just for hash browns.

My friend was a mcdonalds manager and they hid a burger somewhere for a few month to see what happened – nothing it looked brand new after 4 months.

Not this old fairy story again. @AdmiralCain I think your friend's recollection might not be strictly accurate. Let me tell you my true story.

I drove my two nephews home and we stopped at McDonalds because my sister said that was okay. The eight-year-old asked for chicken nuggets and his brother, aged six, asked for a Big Mac. I said: "Are you sure? Because it's quite big and you're quite small." He said yes so I bought it and they ate in the back seat.

A week later someone else was sitting in the back and found a partially-eaten Big Mac down the side. It wasn't toxic waste but it had undergone some changes that meant no one but a starving person would have eaten it. I didn't make a detailed inspection but no component of it looked "brand new".

It wasn't that my nephew didn't like it but his eyes were bigger than his belly and he was too afraid to say in case I told him off. I told my sister because it was funny. She laughed and told me to ignore him in future and get him chicken nuggets or a small hamburger.

It's fine for people not to want to eat McDonalds. But if they are going to raise objections it's reasonable to ask them to come up with credible ones. Otherwise I'll ignore them. I forgave my nephew for fibbing but as I said, he was only six.

I used to love a McDonald’s breakfast when it was a rare treat.
Then I started working a job where we started a couple mornings a week with a McDonald’s breakfast. Now they’re ruined for me, I can’t think about them without feeling ill.

I really miss those days before when I enjoyed them though, so good for you OP, I’m glad you still enjoy it!

@SpookyScarySkeletons

Bacon roll and a hash brown for me.

My 17yo is very anti McDonald's! She says it tastes like hangovers and regret.

Exactly my order!
