Haha. Thanks for that; it was a fun read.

I used to do something similar, but opposite with the Big Breakfast, back when it came with muffins instead of biscuits. I’d eat one half of the muffin with butter and jelly, then reconstruct a type of Sausage McMuffin with Egg with the other half, once I realized it was basically a deconstruction of one: muffin, eggs, sausage patty.

Anyways, age and a slowing metabolism has relegated it all to the far reaches of fond memories instead of regular habit.

I will choose to eat so many other things, before eating anything at Mcdonald's.

I've usually prefered the Jack in the Box breakfast sausage croissant... but I honestly love the new McDonalds breakfast sandwich with the mcgriddle bread and three sausage pattys and think about it far more than I should.

Been awhile since going to McDonalds. For a breakfast, I've had the pancakes or the egg mcmuffin or the one with the biscuits. We usually do our own version of the muffin with egg and cheese at home.

I'm pretty health-conscious and nutrition is an on-off hobby. With that said, I believe McD's breakfast is quite delicious. Some days I might do the oatmeal and then take it to work to mix it with equal parts non-sweetened oats. It dilutes the sugary flavor and is actually perfect with a 1:1 ratio of plain oats.

The big breakfast is a really good deal and perfectly prepared. I like the pancakes, biscuits, and especially love the $1 coffee.

I'm biased as well since I worked there as a teen - great organization.

Life was simpler and greater back in the day when you could not only be bothered to write but to expect a response. Sure wished I had lived a generation ago. How nice that would have been --at least as far as having most all possessing manners and social skills. But that's another thread entirely.

I agree. I don’t know if they still do this, but any size coffee was a buck, so I would order the bucket size and drink it on the way to work to come out of my coma and face the reality of my job.

I don't find fast food palatable...
It's a strange lol to see McSludge in F&D, with praise.

Panera is our choice for breakfast as well.

They have improved their menu offerings in the past year.

I joke that I cook breakfast for my wife and I six days a week and let "Ronald" cook on Sundays. I know it's not the same everywhere but the "payment" for doing the online survey at our McD's is buy one sandwich, get one free. So every Sunday I'll go get my sausage and egg McMuffin, her sausage biscuit, and 2 hash browns and with the BOYO I pay somewhere around $3.50. I don't drink coffee and she said there's not enough money to pay her to drink McD's coffee.
