Morning meal lovers rejoiced last fall when McDonald's finally introduced an All Day Breakfast Menu. Now, the Chicago Tribune reports, they have yet another reason to toast the chain: The burger behemoth announced on Wednesday, July 6, that it’s expanding its breakfast offerings to include the McGriddle—a sandwich made from fried bacon, egg, and American cheese, served on maple syrup-flavored buns—along with McMuffins and biscuit sandwiches. Prior to this, most chains only offered either biscuit sandwiches or McMuffins from sunup to sundown.
The revamped national menu comes courtesy of popular demand, USA Today reports. According to McDonald's spokeswoman Melissa Layton, McGriddles are the most requested breakfast item not already offered nationally. And while most of the nation’s chains served up their breakfast sandwiches on English muffins, Southeast locations sold biscuit sandwiches. Customers complained on social media, saying they wanted both bun options available all day—so, lo and behold, now they have them.
McDonald's new national breakfast menu is slated to hit stores this September. Hopefully, its offerings will taste great with a heaping side of garlic fries.
