Breakfast-only hash browns meet the Big Mac and fries. Two of the best items on the McDonald's menu, hash browns and fries, are finally united in one sandwich. Consider this a McDonald's homage to the famed fries-as-toppings Primanti sandwich in Pittsburgh. There's textural variety from the crisp fries and the greasy, soft hash browns with the crunchy gold exterior.
The height means that the Big McCarbMac is a press-it-down kind of sandwich. You'll want extra special sauce to help get all the starch down, but for carb lovers, it's an improvement on the sandwich, with fried potato in every bite.
The Big McCarbMac
Breakfast-only hash browns meet the Big Mac and fries. You'll want extra special sauce to help get all the starch down, but for carb lovers, it's an improvement on the sandwich, with fried potato in every bite.
McDonald's does make a Southern Style Chicken Biscuit, but it seems like a regional sandwich that you can't find at every location. Never fear, order yourself any one of the breakfast biscuit sandwiches, ask for some syrup, and then when the lunch menu switches over, grab a Crispy Chicken or Southern Style Crispy Chicken Sandwich and ask for Spicy Buffalo Sauce. Replace the bun with the biscuits, mix the syrup and the hot sauce, and pour liberally. McDonald's should acdtually make this themselves — it's a pretty great fast-food sandwich.
To take this theme to the next level, use the Premium Crispy Chicken Club Sandwich. That adds Swiss and bacon. That doesn't necessarily make it any more Southern, but it does make it even better.
Quarter Hash Pounder
The Quarter Hash Pounder. It's something you don't talk about, and maybe eat when no one's looking, but this mash-up is another of the most successful breakfast-lunch item concoctions. The bun in the normal Quarter Pounder with Cheese is replaced with two hash browns, one on either side. Think of it as a potato Double Down burger. The hash browns are crispy, greasy, indulgent replacements for the dry (in comparison) bun that normally holds the sandwich. And hey, doesn't that make it McGluten-free?
The Big Mac Breakfast
The Big Mac makes for some obvious "because it was there" combinations. You order one and then, with the addition of two of any kind of breakfast sandwiches, the possibilities are endless. Put a Big Mac together with the eggs from any one of the three meaty breakfast sandwiches — the Egg McMuffins (left); Sausage Egg McMuffins; or Bacon, Egg & Cheese Biscuits. The sandwich has good height, and is pretty tasty. It's easier to eat than the Big McCarbMac, because the eggs make it moister, but it's still a press-it-down sandwich.
Losing the eggs and just grabbing the meat could be a power move, too. You could use the ham from the Egg McMuffin; the sausage from the Sausage McMuffin; and the bacon from the Bacon, Egg & Cheese Biscuit (buying three of each) — replacing each bun layer with a layer of ham, sausage, and baconr. What would you call that? The Big MacAtkins?
McDonald's doesn't do doughnuts, so technically you can't do a McLuther (the doughnut burger said to be named for singer-songwriter and record producer Luther Vandross, who supposedly loved them). But you can get pretty close. And if you're honest with yourself, it's actually pretty good (ahem, cough, as far as McDonald's goes).
Using two Cinnamon Melts and a Quarter Pounder with Cheese (order the Angus Bacon and Cheese for more over-the-top bacon action), you get the doughnut sweetness and pastry effect and you also get the sweet-salty thing going on. Just keep in mind that this is a hold-it-til-you're-done burger, as there's not much structural integrity to those Cinnamon Melts.
McPhilly Cheese Steak
How has this never been done? Oh, wait, McDonald's has done a Philly Cheese Steak? Well, if so, not one you're likely able to find at your local Mickey D's. You order a Steak, Egg & Cheese Bagel from the breakfast menu (two, for the right meat-and-cheese-to-bun ratio) and a McRib from the lunch menu (best to ask for it without the sauce in this case). Then, you just use the hoagie roll from the McRib as the bread for the steak and cheese. You'll be missing peppers and onions, but hey, you're not exactly going to be satisfying your craving for the Philly original anyway.
The McWhichCameFirst is one of the most successful breakfast-lunch mash-up sandwiches. You order a Bacon, Egg & Cheese Bagel and a Premium Crispy Chicken Classic Sandwich or a Southern Style Crispy Chicken Sandwich. (If you're going to go so far as to make this one, would you really ever be the kind of person to order a grilled chicken sandwich to do it? Probably not.) Just place the chicken on the bagel sandwich.
Which name is better — the McWhichCameFirst or the McMotherandChild? Maybe the latter should be reserved for another sandwich, one made with the egg component from the big breakfast, Egg McMuffin, and the Sausage Biscuit with Egg. Then you have eggs done three different ways: egg circle, folded omelet, and scrambled. Then again, that would probably be the McMotherwithChildren? Tasteless, but tasty?
Hollandaise is an emulsion of egg yolks and butter, seasoned with lemon juice and cayenne — a sauce that McDonald's definitely doesn't offer. But there is ranch sauce available at lunch and it's pretty close in appearance to hollandaise. You order two Egg McMuffins, which have the egg and "Canadian" ham components, drizzle on a little ranch, and there you go — food to make you fat. Again, not something you want to tell many people you do, but kind of disgustingly tasty.
The McFish Taco
Breakfast burrito Baja-style? A McSkillet Burrito with Sausage meets a Filet-O-Fish and a Big Mac. You take the tortilla and empty it of the egg and sausage (or don't), add slices of Filet-O-Fish, and the lettuce, tomato, and special sauce from the Big Mac. Presto. A McDonald's fish taco.
Of course, some things are better left undone. You do them and then say, "What on earth was I thinking?" Such is the case here. There are surely Filet-O-Fish admirers out there, and you have to be with them on the commercial for the original sandwich (pure catchy brilliance), but as far as menu mash-ups go, this is not a good idea. It's far too fishy. But it can be done. Oh, yes, it can be done.
The Big McGriddle
The sweet-salty thing really makes for some of the best mash-up sandwiches, and this is the king of the genre. Order two McGriddles and a Big Mac, then replace the bread layers in the Big Mac with the McGriddle pancake "buns." It's syrupy-sweet, salty, squishy, and undoubtedly unhealthy, but again, as far as fast-food sandwiches go, it's a winner. It's not a suggestion that's going to win over proponents of the food pyramid, or plate, or whatever it is these days, but you bet your boots people would order this if it were on the menu.
Employee ‘exposes’ how McDonald’s eggs are made
Sometimes things are better left unsaid. Or, in this case, a total secret.
An alleged McDonald’s employee posted a clip on TikTok showing how McDonald’s cooks eggs for their breakfast sandwiches.
The user, who goes by @sean_ford, shows a small white tray with three cracked eggs being inserted into a microwave for exactly one minute. When time’s up, the eggs come out looking like what’s featured on a classic Egg McMuffin.
He captured the TikTok: “Oh no the secret is out.”
The comment section is divided, with some people disgusted over the process, and others arguing that this video is a hoax.
“Not even true I work at a McDonald’s,” one person replied.
“Nah I did this one and my manager yelled at me,” someone else said.
“That’s impossible,” a third posted.
It is suspicious that the three raw eggs were able to magically turn into three perfect, circular patties for the sandwiches in just 60 seconds in a microwave. However, cooking eggs in the microwave is feasible, and a fast-food joint like McDonald’s would prioritize speed and efficiency above all else.
But, on the McDonald’s FAQ page, the company states it uses freshly cracked eggs that are cooked on a grill with an “egg ring.”
Ford’s only other TikTok is another McDonald’s-related one, in which he opens up a box stacked with coupon cards for free items. His caption reads, “Found this stash at work. Willing to trade for toilet paper.” Which, again, begs the question of whether he actually does work at a McDonald’s or not.
Although this item is no longer on the dollar menu (it was replaced by the McDouble), this item remains close to the price of $1 and is well-worth the buck. This seemingly simple idea is a sales slam dunk as its simplicity and cheap price are a crowd favorite. My guy friend frequents this menu item by ordering FOUR doubles and stacking them atop each other. Pretty convinced he's responsible for most of Mickey D's sales with this one.
HAHA. A salad on McDonald's most popular items of ALL TIME, you must be kidding. However, salads of days past, like the Bacon Ranch and the Southwest Salad, were definitely delicious and the real reason as to why this item made the top 10 lies directly in the name. McDonal's premium salads came at an equally premium price, which was more than double the cost of a Big Mac (at around $4.20). So obviously, more money was made from those health nuts dragged to Mickey D's (likely unwillingly).
Condiments That Should Replace Heinz Ketchup at McDonald's
We love Heinz ketchup. In fact, it made our 2012 Seal of Approval. But, after former Burger King CEO Bernardo Hees took the helm at Heinz, McDonald's announced it would end its relationship with the brand. We knew BK and McD's were competitors, but we had no idea that giant food corporations operated under the High School Bro Code. (#1 You cannot take your best buddy's former flame to the prom.)
The phasing out is slow-going, so you can still squirt Heinz all over your Quarter Pounders, McNuggets, and immortal fries for a bit longer. And while it's possible the fast food chain will go with Heinz competitor Hunt's, we suggest that the Golden Arches should think outside the box and consider developing a new condiment. Maybe an Asian hot sauce to appeal to the young, hip crowd? Or a garlicky mayo? There are so many game-changing possibilities for McDonald's new condiment, and—what do you know!?—we have some ideas.
Slideshow: New menu items from McDonald’s, Papa John’s, Sonic
McDonald’s Corp. is celebrating the 50th anniversary of its iconic Shamrock Shake by launching the new Oreo Shamrock McFlurry. Available beginning Feb. 19, the treat features vanilla soft-serve ice cream blended with mint “Shamrock” flavor and Oreo cookie pieces.
“We’ve been serving the iconic, cult-favorite Shamrock Shake for 50 years, and it’s become synonymous with McDonald’s ever since,” said Linda VanGosen, vice-president of menu innovation for McDonald’s. “We’re excited to serve up a new way to experience the one-of-a-kind Shamrock flavor in our new Oreo Shamrock McFlurry. Our chefs worked to get the perfect balance of Oreo cookies and mint for this new delicious dessert.”
Papa John’s is bringing its pizza dough and toppings into a new format with the launch of Papadias Italian flatbread-style sandwiches. Made from Papa John’s pizza dough filled with various ingredients, the oven-baked Papadias come in four varieties: Italian, Philly Cheesesteak, Grilled BBQ Chicken & Bacon, and Meatball Pepperoni
“The Papadia is inspired by the ‘piadina,’ an Italian folded flatbread sandwich from Northern Italy,” said Paul Fabre, senior vice-president of product innovation at Papa John’s. “It combines the original Papa John’s crust people crave along with fresh toppings, making it the best of both worlds — it’s both a pizza and a sandwich. The Papadia is great for people on the go who are looking to mix up their traditional lunch routine.”
Sonic Drive-In is spicing up its tater tots with new Tatchos. The snack features Sonic’s signature tater tots layered with cheese sauce, bacon, diced onions, jalapeños and zesty baja sauce.
“Sonic Tots have become a fan favorite over the years, and we are giving them an exciting upgrade with a fiesta of cheesy nacho flavors to create a shareable snack inspired by similar delights found in gastropubs,” said Scott Uehlein, vice-president of product innovation and development for Sonic. “What better way to warm up on a cold winter day than with a mashup of flavors from Totchos?”

What to order: Big Mac and three McChickens
Is the Land, Sea, & Air Burger still not enough protein for you? Try this McDonald's secret menu item instead: the Big McChicken. To create this monstrosity, you'll have to order a Big Mac and three (yes, three) McChickens. When you get your sandwiches, replace the buns with the McChicken patties. It will get messy, but it will definitely help you hit that daily protein goal.
Don't miss the Chick-fil-A sauce.
"I've searched a long time and now I have my favorite sauce. I had ribs in the Crock Pot and I simmered my sauce for 40 minutes. I then poured some of it on my ribs and let it keep simmering with the ribs. Thirty minutes later the ribs were done and the sauce's ingredients had married nicely."
This McDonald&rsquos Hack Means You Can Have An Iced Coffee Milkshake
You won&rsquot find this on the McDonald&rsquos menu.
We love a McDonald&rsquos menu hack. Whether it&rsquos a way to get mayonnaise to dip your fries in, or a menu mash-up that gives you an ice cream sandwich, we&rsquore all over it.
The latest McDonald&rsquos menu hack we&rsquore into is this one that gets you an iced coffee milkshake. Because, really, you just can&rsquot beat an iced coffee.
This video on TikTok shows @ellbrxo ordering a vanilla milkshake and an espresso. She then simply pours her espresso into her milkshake and gives it a little stir. Et voila: a deliciously creamy and yummy iced coffee frappe.
People have been all over the video, which has over 28,000 likes and more than 300 comments, including one from an actual McDonald&rsquos employee who said: &ldquoI work there, and I do this all the time!!&rdquo
It&rsquos been officially given the stamp of approval, so what are you waiting for?
But get this&hellip if you fancy taking things up a gear, how about doing this with a chocolate milkshake instead of vanilla? That way you&rsquove got yourself an iced mocha frappe, and we think that might just be the tastiest drink known to man.
This McDonald&rsquos menu hack coffee news is even more exciting than all that Dalgona business that was going on a few months ago, in our honest opinion.
