Meet the Big McSausage Egg Surf and Turf Mac. The brainchild of Eating the Road, it's composed of a Big Mac, Filet-o-Fish patty, McChicken patty, sausage patty, and McMuffin egg — plus a few buns and toppings thrown in for good measure.
This heavyweight plate isn't just something you can have whenever you want. In order to wrap your claws around this momentous meal, you've got to be in line at McDonald's at the precise morning hour of 10:30, so as to get your hands on both the breakfast and the lunch items the sandwich calls for. Brilliant.
The video reveals Sandy's ridiculous preference for the word "delicious," her affinity for vodka-spiked cocktails, and her mispronunciation of the word "espresso."
My initial reaction was what fanatic has this kind of time on his hands? But my second thought was to hit the play button again as soon as it was over — it's that funny. What do you think of the video — is it an accurate representation?
Try saying this really fast three times: McDonald's is back with the Mac Snack Wrap. What's that, you ask? Simply put, it's the fast food chain's Big Mac wrapped in a soft flour tortilla in place of a hamburger bun. The new menu item is available in all Canadian McDonald's locations, although Eat Me Daily reports that the wraps are also being tested in Houston, Phoenix, Milwaukee, and Michigan City.
I haven't tried it yet, but I'm on the fence about this one. On the one hand, I hold a special place in my heart for the flour tortilla. But on the flipside, there are some things that just don't seem to belong inside tortillas — like hamburger patties. What do you say: Is the Mac Snack Wrap a brilliant way to eat on the go, or the most ridiculous idea ever?
The show, which is described as a series that "challenges four up-and-coming chefs to turn a selection of everyday ingredients into an extraordinary three-course meal. After each course, a contestant gets 'chopped' until the last man or woman left standing claims victory," is hosted by former Top Chef judge, Ted Allen. Although Chopped does not air until Tuesday, Jan. 13 (at 10 p.m.), many feel the show is a complete ripoff of Top Chef.
After watching the promo video, Eat Me Daily declared that "Food Network is totally trying to mimic Top Chef's more professional veneer, especially in the light of the more amateurish low-budget feel of the Next Food Network Star."
