No matter what goes on in the rest of my life, I think it's a pretty great consolation that whatever trials and tribulations I might go through, there will always be the opportunity to gorge on some delicious McDonald's.
For the great majority of you reading this, McDonald's has been around since before you were alive, and no matter how young you are, the Golden Arches will continue to stand long after its delicious meals and milkshakes have clogged your arteries, crippled your pancreas and otherwise left you for dead.
Whether you're one of those people who likes to indulge in their desserts, gobble down boxes of french fries at a time or simply enjoy a healthy selection of Chicken McNuggets, McDonald's has a special place in all of our hearts. But even when we've loved something for a very long time, there's still the potential for a surprise every now and again.
Whenever you order a Big Mac, McChicken or even a Filet O' Fish, you were probably too busy drooling or contemplating going Super Size to wonder if there was any way to improve on your burger. But there actually is a way to upgrade any McDonald's burger, and now that I know about it, I'm going to to do this every time.
So, picture yourself ordering a meal from McDonald's. Let's say that you went for the Big Mac. Picture the twin patties, salivate over the sesame bun, imagine the mouthwatering Big Mac sauce. Now, what's the only thing that could make this amazing perfect? That's right, an egg: and if you ask your server very nicely, your dreams just might come true.
You read that right, people. If you're having lunch and you want a little extra protein, just ask for a round egg in your burger, and there you have it. If you're having a quick dinner and wish it could be more like brinner (breakfast and dinner combined, for those of you living under a rock), then ask for a folded egg. Pure bliss.
While there's no official word from McDonald's themselves on this egg-cellent idea, there's often very little word on secret menu items. That's why they call them secret menu items. While your server is unlikely to have gotten this order very often before, he or she will accept it, before maybe even asking you to let them know how it tastes.
The answer to that question, of course, is "glorious".
Of those who've tried it, an egg goes well with each of your favorites like the Big Mac, the Quarter Pounder and the McChicken (though nobody's yet to try one with the Filet O'Fish), and the folded egg is reportedly slightly more delicious.
The only real drawback on adding in an egg to your burger is financial, really; adding an egg to your burger will set you back an extra $1.80, but the pure deliciousness of it all means that I'm okay with that. So, what are you waiting for? Article over. Go to McDonald's, and get an egg with your burger. Life will never be the same from this point on.
