McDonald's Customer Shares His Secret To Save Money On Breakfast

Truth be told, I normally like to have my breakfast at home. But occasionally, I do get to eat outside, especially when on the go or in a rush.

So I have visited McDonald's and ordered their breakfast items. But I never knew there was an actual hack that could help us all to save some money while doing that. Let's check it out.

Okay, let me ask you: what is your favorite breakfast item on the McDonald's menu?

Is it the sausage egg McMuffin or the biscuit? If it is, you're in luck because I'm going to show you how you can save some dollars while ordering these two.

Check this out.

I'm not sure if you noticed this, but a sausage McMuffin or a biscuit is only $1.19, depending on your location. But what is missing here, huh? Well, it's the egg, of course. You can't possibly omit that, right?

So what happens when you order the same exact sandwiches with an egg?

A lot, as it turns out. Now an egg McMuffin jumps to a whopping $3.79. OMG? What? That's $2.60 for just one egg! I can't believe that.

That's highway robbery if you asked me.

You can get a whole egg carton for less than that. So if that doesn't sit right with you either, here's what you do, according to the man who posted this TikTok video.

Instead of just ordering an egg sausage McMuffin, do this.

Order a plain sandwich without the egg and ask for a folded egg on the side. Get this — it will only cost you an extra $1 to do that. Wow!

Now, you can just insert the egg into your sandwich, and voilà!

You just saved yourself about $1.60. How did I not know about this trick? If you're like me and love saving money, I bet this is blowing your mind, too, ha, ha!

I'm not surprised that after this video got posted, it went viral.

But it seems that some people weren't all too happy about this trick after all. Why? Well, because apparently, there's a difference between the eggs in these sandwiches.

Folks claim that the regular sandwich has a freshly cracked egg.

Oh, yum! And the folded egg is a liquid egg product. Hmm. I suppose that will affect how these two taste in the end. So that's something to keep in mind.

So what's the verdict?

Is this a McDonald's hack that you would use? Is saving money worth sacrificing taste, or would you still shell out to get the regular egg McMuffin anyway?

I'm on the fence. I guess I need to try them both to see which one I like more to decide.
