RIP, Big Breakfast

I made a startling discovery yesterday (startling to me, anyway!). McDonald’s no longer serves the Big Breakfast. That era is now over, and all I have are my photos and memories (geez, so dramatic!).

Yeah… no more Big Breakfast served in that environmentally unfriendly styrofoam packaging. No more soft, bland scrambled eggs served with that spicy, rubbery sausage (the perfect accompaniment to bland eggs!) and an ultra-crispy, salty hash brown along with the spongey toasted English muffin, which I liked to eat with strawberry jam.

The Hungry Jack’s Aussie Brekky is really good, but you get fried eggs, not scrambled eggs. There was something I really liked about those Big Breakfast scrambled eggs. I’m still not sure why I liked them so much – I mean, you could pick them up in one piece most of the time! *sigh*

I asked the girl who served me how long it’s been since they stopped serving Big Breakfasts, and she said it’s been about a month. Apparently they weren’t selling as many as they used to, and the decision was made to drop them from the breakfast menu. She told me that ever since they stopped selling the Big Breakfast they’ve been driven crazy by people constantly asking for it. I suppose that’s always what happens. Heh.

And so for my breakfast yesterday morning I ordered a Sausage and Egg McMuffin Value Meal, with a Berri Apple Juice instead of coffee. It was yummy, but just so not a Big Breakfast!
