But Where’s the Hashbrown? McDonald’s All Day Breakfast Problem
When McDonald’s announced that its long-awaited all-day breakfast menu would launch on Tuesday, we knew we’d have to settle for a trimmed-down version of the regular breakfast menu after 10:30 a.m. It was a sacrifice made in the name of keeping the kitchen crew from going absolutely nuts and slowing down service at the fast-food chain, according to Buzzfeed.
But there is one victim on some McDonald’s all-day breakfast menus that many customers are sure to take issue with: the hash brown. Depending on the setup of their kitchens, about 10% of restaurants will not be offering the golden, crispy delight, meaning customers may end up pairing their Egg McMuffin with fries. Fries!
The hash brown is the very last thing listed, even behind the lowly oatmeal and yogurt parfaits. And there’s not a McGriddle in sight.
A closer inspection shows that McDonald’s restaurants will only be offering a selection of these items, not all of them, depending on region.
