Eggs may get the rep for being a morning food, but who says that you can't have them after the sun goes down? I'm all about the breakfast for dinner thing, and now an iconic fast food chain may be getting onboard as well. According to Buzzfeed, McDonald's may be making all-day breakfast a thing, and all of you Egg McMuffin-aholics should be stoked.
Yep, your breakfast sandwich may become your anytime sandwich... just don't attempt to order your muffin alongside an order of hash browns just yet. So far the franchise has been testing out the concept in just two markets nationwide to see how customers react and how manageable this magical all-day breakfast feat is for stores to keep up with. Several Nashville and San Diego restaurants now have all-day breakfast prep space, which is just the first step in being able to order yourself some egg and cheesy goodness all day.
Making breakfast an all-day reality isn't exactly easy for the franchise to accomplish, as it requires the franchise to alter menu boards, prep stations, and management. That's why the fast food corporation is experimenting with it now: better to get all of the kinks out than have customers wait an hour for their 7PM hash brown. As for what you can order when breakfast goes all day, it might not be everything under the sun: individual franchises may need to pick and choose what they would like to serve.
The good news? All-day brekkie is something that McDonald's is actively pursuing... and it could arrive as early as October of 2015. You may be able to trade a Big Mac for a McMuffin as early as Halloween - just remember to balance either with an otherwise healthy diet.
