McDonalds Adds New Gourmet Recipes To Its Menu

by Sydney Pigott

Everybody has at least tried one thing from the famous fast food chain Mcdonald’s. Not everyone enjoys the taste of greasy, carb packed meals from quick pick up restaurants, but maybe McDonald’s new “Signature Crafted Recipes” will change people’s perspective on it.

McDonalds new line of sandwiches includes eight brand new flavor combinations. With three different types of meat options containing chicken cooked either “crispy” or “grilled” and the other option being “100% pure beef.” On the patties comes the choice of thick-cut Applewood smoked bacon sprinkled with sweet maple seasoning, creamy Dijon sauce, grilled onions, smooth white cheddar cheese, and crisp leaf lettuce, which is labeled as the “Maple Bacon Dijon Sandwich.” [1]

The “Sweet Barbeque Bacon Sandwich” has BBQ sauce made with sweet onions, thick-cut Applewood smoked bacon, grilled & crispy onions, and smooth white cheddar cheese. The “Pico Guacamole Sandwich” features guacamole made with “real hass avocados,” and freshly-prepared Pico de Gallo made with Roma tomatoes, onions, and the flavors of lime and cilantro; creamy buttermilk ranch sauce; smooth white cheddar cheese and crisp leaf lettuce. All of the sandwiches come with a choice of being on an artisan roll or a sesame seed bun. [1]

Business teacher Regina Stelma said “I am always looking for quick and relatively healthy options for my lunch but none of the new sandwiches really interest me, and they’re probably not any more healthier than the burgers they already have.”

On the contrary, sophomore Rachel Coleman thinks “The Pico Guacamole Sandwich sounds so good.” She also argues that itt could be healthy if you get the grilled chicken with it instead of the crispy chicken.

Freshman Leigha Pagliochini stated “I at least have McDonalds once a week,” and suggests “They should make a burger with baked beans on it!”

The new burgers could end up becoming a huge hit and who knows? Maybe they will add more signature crafted sandwiches to the menu.
