McGriddles


This morning, Jared went to McDonald's to get me a Bacon, Egg, and Cheese Biscuit for breakfast for my birthday. Unfortunately, the McDonald's man screwed up and Jared came home with Bacon, Egg and Cheese McGriddles instead without knowing it. I had never tried a McGriddle before this morning. Firstly, because I never go to McDonald's for breakfast and, secondly, because when I do go to McDonald's for breakfast, I get the bacon, egg, and cheese biscuit because it's the tastiest. I had never given much thought to a McGriddle until there was one sitting in front of me. And then my thoughts went something like this: "That bacon, egg, and cheese is sandwiched between pancakes. That doesn't sound very good. Who puts bacon, egg, and cheese with pancakes? Biscuits are much better." But, there was the McGriddle, so I gave it a try. Again, I do not know much about McGriddles, but upon biting into it, I found out another little tidbit about them. There are pockets of syrup within the little pancakes. As if putting bacon, eggs, and cheese with pancakes isn't bad enough, now you're going to add syrup? Now that I have given some thought to McGriddles, here's what I've come up with. They're gross. Bacon, eggs and cheese do not belong between two syrup-infused pancakes. We each took a bite of our McGriddle and, after experiencing the disgustingness, promptly took the bacon, eggs, and cheese out and ate it by itself. I couldn't even eat the pancakes by themselves because I don't like syrup. I grew up thinking that peanut butter and jelly on pancakes was perfectly normal because that's how my family eats them. So, I rather think that the McGriddle should go. I want my bacon, eggs, and cheese between biscuits where they belong. And whoever came up with the idea of the McGriddle should be fired. And the kid who screwed up my birthday breakfast should be shot!

Ah Jenni. Go easy on the kid. We all make mistakes and although you got the raw end of the deal you may have been the one that allowed someone else to discover the goodness of a bacon, egg and cheese biscuit. Here they were planning on a mcGriddle and instead got the biscuit. They were in seventh heaven I am sure. By the way Happy Birthday. 30 Years WOW!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY!

I'd shoot that kid for you myself, but I don't have a gun.

And I even like syrup... but that sounds disgusting. How can you make up for a birthday breakfast flop like that??? Oh yes - In & Out for lunch. Surely they won't mess up.

I love peanut butter and jam on pancakes. It is pretty amazing. And syrup... well, it's just not that great in my opinion. I probably would have been a little ticked myself.

Dang it! I hate how I don't realize when I'm signed in under my photo blog account. Anyway, the above comment was from me, in case you didn't know ;)

I love peanut butter on my pancakes, but sorry I hate Mc-D. Maybe I have really missed out on life. The thought of your b-day breakfast made me want to throw up for you. Nasty!

Thats AWESOME! Ian LOVES those things...I know! I don't get it either! Happy Birthday though!

Happy Birthday!!! I like the idea of syrup getting all over my bacon and eggs if it's on a plate. But I don't like the idea of eating it with pancakes as a sandwich...
