Finally: McDonald’s announces expanded breakfast hours

posted at 10:01 pm on June 6, 2013 by Mary Katharine Ham

It’s been a rough day, with every hour bringing news of an innovative erosion of privacy or freedom that’s been going on unbeknownst to us for years. So, chew on this and feel like America still exists!

McDonald’s is opening its eyes to breakfast by moonlight.

The Oak Book-based chain is testing a late-night value menu called “After Midnight” that lets customers mix and match its best-selling breakfast and lunch items like the Egg McMuffin or Big Mac, with hash browns or fries.

Adding to the array are the Egg White Delight, Sausage McMuffin, Chicken Nuggets, the chain’s new Quarter Pounders, with bacon and cheese, habanero ranch, deluxe with all the fixings, and the Double Quarter Pounder.

The balance of the usual Dollar Menu, with items like the Grilled Onion Cheddar Burger and McChicken sandwich, are also available along with the sausage burrito, fruit n’ yogurt parfait, oatmeal and hotcakes with sausage. Desserts and McCafe beverages are also available.

Now, it’s unclear how much of your McDonald’s metadata will eventually make it to Michelle Obama, so you may want to keep that in mind. Normally I wouldn’t worry about it, but the blending of the drone program with pizza delivery capabilities could portend trouble.

Exit question: Better news, the announcement of Burger King delivery in select markets last year or this?

But if the CEO doesn’t have same sex marriage on his radar..
All hell will break loose.

No pink slime for me, yuck. If I get hungry in the wee hours I will fire up the grill, or force the wife to make me a sammy.

Bishop on June 6, 2013 at 10:14 PM

I like their bagels. And I have a coupon!

Can I borrow your wife for my late-night pregnancy cravings?

Jackalope on June 6, 2013 at 10:22 PM

Should Taco Bell be worried?

Cool!

Yes.

O/T

Wanted to let you know I bought something called Minnesota’s Brew. Not half bad, and only 13.00 a case. Everything else is double that, pretty much. After three or four, everything tastes the same anyway.

msupertas on June 6, 2013 at 10:29 PM

Good thing BoJangles is better. The south’s greatest invention.

nobar on June 6, 2013 at 10:29 PM

Come on, it’s easy to get a grill going and it gives you time to think.

I’ve been out there at 0200 before, just me and some choice tidbits and 10,000 frogs croaking for all they’re worth. Nothing better.

Bishop on June 6, 2013 at 10:34 PM

How come the sausage mcmuffin costs a buck and with an egg on it it’s three bucks? Two dollars for an egg is ridiculous.

Buddahpundit on June 6, 2013 at 10:35 PM

Been waiting for years for McDonalds to have all-day breakfast and they finally announce extended breakfast hours–after midnight.

Cripes, what’s wrong with you people?

TB on June 6, 2013 at 10:36 PM

I do wonder,with all the Info-Gathering and Spying on Americans,
are they being surveillanced,and tracked at Fast-Food business’s
as part of the HopeyCare!

Jus say’n!!

canopfor on June 6, 2013 at 10:37 PM

Isn’t life unde Obama wonderful. Imagine….all day breakfast. What more can he do for us??

jaywemm on June 6, 2013 at 10:39 PM

I bet FLOTUSA is watching this development pretty closely!!

How could you, of all people, leave this out of the “better news” running?

netster007x on June 6, 2013 at 10:56 PM

Is NSA tuned into McDonald’s computers relaying the information to Michelle so she knows exactly how many Big Mac’s have been eaten each day so she can send out the obesity police, once Obamacare kicks in?

I’m not convinced McDonalds eggs are real eggs.

Waffle House,open 24-7, breakfast anytime, lunch/dinner anytime.

The eggs taste like eggs and even look like and are ashaped like eggs.
Just about as fast as McDonalds and cost about the same, maybe a $1.50 per person including tip. Doesn’t have a drive thru, but eating in a car sucks.

I want a a hybrid Big Mac & Egg McMuffin. Call it the Big McEgg. With Fries, and a Orange Juice McFlurry at 2 Am.

Make it happen Ronald.

portlandon on June 7, 2013 at 12:18 AM

I wonder if the new expanded hours will apply in Spain. There they serve breakfast from whenever-the-hell-after-9:00AM-they-decide-to-show-up until 10:30. It’s a little rediculous.

Glenn Jericho on June 7, 2013 at 12:23 AM

This will be ABC-NBC-CBS ect…lead story. Scandals ? What scandals. McDonalds now has all day breakfast. Isn’t Obama wonderful

jaywemm on June 7, 2013 at 12:28 AM

Wallythedog on June 6, 2013 at 11:34 PM

Really? Maybe I’ve never had a real egg.

Buddahpundit on June 7, 2013 at 12:36 AM

Breakfast served from midnight to (say) noon? Cripes, when I worked there as maintenance (janitor) the most cleaning was performed from midnight to opening (7:00 am then).

The stores (as they call’em) will look horrible with all the liqour-laced vomit to clean.

socalcon on June 7, 2013 at 12:54 AM

I don’t see how they could ever compete with Taco Bell in the blackout drunk market.

EricW on June 7, 2013 at 7:27 AM

I can’t believe Mickey D’s took Chicken Selects off the menu…those were awesome. And extra breakfast hours are fine, but that doesn’t make up for not having the McRib on the permanent menu.

Mmmmmmm….McRib…

JetBoy on June 7, 2013 at 7:37 AM

I love their steak and egg bagel thing!

JellyToast on June 7, 2013 at 7:54 AM

I can’t believe they got the administration to approve of this. They take our electronic records and this is the carrot they give us to pacify us apparently. /shrug

I’ll take a shot. To get people all drugged up so they forget what the Government is doing to them.

Give the man a silver dollar.

Booze and heavily subsidized childcare were the opiates of choice for the USSR; looks like pot and junk food will be ours.

MelonCollie on June 7, 2013 at 8:30 AM

Now when McDonalds announces that they will add Champagne and Eggs Benedict to the menu that is when I will get excited.

logicman_1998 on June 7, 2013 at 10:00 AM

Normally I wouldn’t worry about it, but the blending of the drone program with pizza delivery capabilities could portend trouble.

So after an Egg McMuffin splashes into the Potomac and a drone hits the White House, the drone controller in Florida will apologize…”Oops, I put in the wrong coordinates. Oh by the way, I was audited for $20,000 last year because I voted for Romney…”

Steve Z on June 7, 2013 at 10:37 AM

Mort Sahl once said the most important decision at 3AM was hamburger or scrambled eggs. Diners have been doing it for many decades. McDs is very late to the game.And Sahl would agree with the poster above; the eggs have to be real.

xkaydet65 on June 7, 2013 at 12:33 PM

Expanded hours for an expanded people.

McDonalds: in tune with the times. And I own it’s stock.

KCsecurity1976 on June 7, 2013 at 11:15 PM

Terrific, now lazy bums & potheads have more time to do Mcnothin’ in the morning!
