Arguably one of Mcdonald’s best breakfast items is the McGriddle. The iconic fast food sandwich features your favorite breakfast staples such as egg, bacon or sausage, cheese, and pancake buns.
Good Mythical Morning teamed up with Josh Scherer, also known as Culinary BroDown, as the trio set out to create essentially the world’s most expensive McGriddle.
To do so, they took the core elements of the breakfast sandwich (eggs, cheese, meat, and bun) and rounded up some elevated alternatives to cook with.
Fancy McGriddle ingredients included ostrich and duck eggs, jamon iberico, black truffle, barrel-aged maple syrup, and vella dry jack. The various meats were blended together and fried, while the syrup was rendered and frozen into cubes to be added to the pancake batter. The ostrich and duck eggs were then turned into an omelet as golden as McDonald’s arches.
The elevated breakfast sandwich tallied up to about $120.43. Here’s the financial breakdown:
For comparison, a regular McDonald’s McGriddle sells for about $3.29. For one of these $120 sandwiches, you could pretty much buy 36 McGriddles from the drive-thru. Maybe less if you decide to splurge on some OJ and a hash brown.
Gotta admit, I would not mind trying half of that $120 McGriddle. It’s just not something I’d see myself eating on my daily commute. Check out the video to see how they pull it off.
