The 11 best meal combos you can make from McDonald’s breakfast and regular menus
Mickey D’s is considering making breakfast available all day. We couldn’t possibly be more excited.
On Monday, McDonald’s announced that it would be testing out an all-day breakfast menu. It’s a shrewd business move on McDonald’s part, considering that breakfast accounted for about a third of the fast food chain’s sales in 2012.
At first, I was pretty excited by the announcement. After all, the Egg McMuffin is one of the greatest inventions known to man, and an all-day breakfast would create the opportunity to #drunkbrunch with a McMuffin and a flask. But then, I read this man’s bold idea.
The biggest part of the McDonald’s-breakfast-all-day news is you could get hash browns and put them on your Big Mac

Now, breakfast all day is the most exciting thing that’s ever happened to me.
I pretty much only go to McDonald’s if I’m on a road trip, or if I’m at an airport. I usually order sausage McMuffins if it’s still breakfast time, or large fries and maybe some chicken tenders if it’s the afternoon. But imagine a world in which I didn’t have to choose. Imagine a world in which I could eat breakfast and lunch and dinner all at the same time under those spectacular Golden Arches. Just think of all the amazing combinations I could come up with.
Rolling up pancakes and dunking them in a McFlurry
A quarter pounder piled inside a bacon, egg and cheese McGriddle
A Big Mac but served on three biscuits instead
French fry-sprinkled cinnamon melts
Apple pie biscuit
A cheeseburger on a bagel (not that their bagels are worth your time)
An egg white McMuffin and a salad, if you’re on a diet
Oatmeal all day, if you’re the most boring person alive
Hash browns on literally everything. Hash browns on burgers, hash browns on a salad, hash browns on other hash browns. Hash browns for every meal every day until the day you die, which will be soon, because all you’re eating is hash browns.
A McCrepe pancake with apple pie filling. Enough said.
McDonald’s will be testing the option in San Diego next month and is considering rolling it out to other markets if it’s successful. Judging by the positive reception the chain has gotten so far, it seems that’s pretty likely:
why can’t McDonalds just serve breakfast all day😭😭
