Finally, a McMuffin for lunch!
By Jerrison Oracion, Senior Columnist
Breakfast is the most important meal of the day, and there are a lot of delicious food to choose from. Even though I eat breakfast food in the morning, sometimes I like to also eat breakfast food during lunch hours. One of my favourite things to eat during lunch is a Sausage ’N Egg McMuffin. Two years ago, all day breakfast became available in McDonald’s in the US, allowing everyone to eat their favourite breakfast items any time of day. That privilege had not been available in Canada until now.
After a long wait, all day breakfast is finally available all across our country. That means that I can eat a Sausage ’N Egg McMuffin at any time during breakfast, lunch, or dinner. Back then, when I ate one during lunch, I either had to buy it before 11 a.m., save it, and then eat it cold or heat it in the microwave. Now, I can eat it fresh throughout the entire day, and it tastes very delicious. Breakfast food tastes very good, so much so that it makes you to want to eat breakfast anytime, in the day, or for every meal you eat.
The Sausage ’N Egg McMuffin is very delicious because the egg tastes great, the sausage has a lot of flavour, and the cheese adds even more flavour. Getting breakfast during lunch and dinner is cheaper than getting regular lunch and dinner meals. A breakfast combo that includes a McMuffin, a hash brown, and a drink costs around $6. But, the choices are limited after 11 a.m. with the only breakfast items available after that being various types of McMuffins, hot cakes, and hash browns. In the United States, their entire breakfast menu is available all day.
It would nice if the McGriddle and the McBiscuit were available all day, because they both taste delicious. The McGriddle adds a maple syrup taste to the sandwich, and the McBiscuit makes the sandwich butterier. Also, they could put eggs and sausage alongside the hot cakes as part of a “Big Breakfast” meal, for a complete breakfast. Their breakfast wraps could be available all day as well, because they fill you up quickly. While we were waiting for all day breakfast to be available in McDonald’s in Canada, A&W did a similar thing by offering the Bacon and Egger all day in select locations, and it is now currently available in all locations. These changes might cause other fast food restaurants to offer their breakfast menus all day.
So, if you like to eat breakfast during the rest of the day, or you simply have not eaten breakfast yet, you can eat breakfast any time of the day in McDonald’s, so don’t worry about setting your alarm clock.
