We’re trying not to be stereotypical big-city liberals here, but really, aside from the occasional drunken 4am White Castle binge, there’s nothing really that appealing about fast food to us. Especially with so many cheap bodega sandwiches to choose from. But, maybe you may find yourself in another part of the world, one without bodegas on every corner, and your only chance for a hangover-curing breakfast sandwich is a McDonald’s bacon, egg and cheese biscuit. So, SeriousEats did some food journalism and discovered something: you can replace the gross “egg loaf” on the biscuit with a real egg.
It’s not even that hard, and it doesn’t cost you any extra cash. Just ask the cashier for a “round egg” when getting any egg sandwich, and try to ignore the screaming voice in your head yelling “doublespeak” while you do it. And voila, you get an actual real fried egg on your egg sandwich instead of a yellow loaf thing that looks like a sponge. Why can’t McDonald’s give you one of those without you asking nicely? Because…hey, look over there!
