McDonald’s® USA officially introduces fan-inspired hacks to menus

Hacks this delicious deserve a spot on the menu (at least, for a limited time). From putting a crispy Hash Brown in between their Sausage McMuffin® with Egg, to adding Chicken McNuggets® to their favorite sandwich, McDonald’s fans are always coming up with different ways to make their meal uniquely their own. That’s why, for the first time ever, McDonald’s is spotlighting their creativity by officially debuting four fan-favorite creations on menus across the country for a limited time.

Starting Jan. 31, customers can visit their local participating McDonald’s or go on McDonald’s App to order the custom ‘Menu Hacks’ by name and receive all the delicious menu items needed to build them by hand (because that’s half the fun)!

So, which of the many mashups seen on social media were chosen as the lucky four for our menu? To help introduce these craveable combos, we asked a few self-identified ‘menu hack masters’ to share their favorites:

The Hash Brown McMuffin®*

“I’ve been saying for years that the Hash Brown goes inside of the Sausage McMuffin with Egg … that extra little crispy bite is the real breakfast cheat code.” – Sarah Sandlin (@sarahmargaretsandlin)

The Crunchy Double

“It’s simple, yet so tasty…Chicken McNuggets topped with a Double Cheeseburger, then drizzled with Tangy Barbeque Sauce. Order it now and thank me later.” – Greg Simms (@grubwithgreg)

The Land, Air & Sea

“A McChicken**, stacked on a Big Mac, stacked on a Filet-O-Fish… it’s the flavor I never knew I needed, until I needed it. Go big baby!” – Julian Broadway (@julianbroadway)

The Surf + Turf

“Sometimes I’m craving the flaky crunch of a Filet-O-Fish, sometimes I want the juiciness of a Double Cheeseburger, and sometimes I want both.  So why choose?” – PJ Mattingly (@heavyhands94)

Fans are encouraged to share their favorite builds on social media and tag @McDonalds with the hashtag #McDonaldsHacks. Happy (menu) hacking!

*Available only during breakfast hours.

**Served with a Hot ‘n Spicy McChicken sandwich at select restaurants.

The Hash Brown McMuffin, the Crunchy Double and the Land, Air & Sea are available at participating restaurants nationwide via carry-out, at the Drive Thru, on the McDonald’s App or through McDelivery. The Surf + Turf is available to order exclusively on the McDonald’s App and via McDelivery.
