    I see your standards deminish with a little hair of the dog! The best thing I've had was a Big Mac with a cold beer.

        I've always wished they would do this. My McDonald's consumption would increase many times over if I could get an Egg McMuffin or a Sausage McMuffin w/egg at any point in the day.

          Probably something to do with prep time and equipment. Having to make a sausage egg McMuffins might take away from the time and space available for Big Macs, hamburgers etc.

          What's odd is that a few years ago, I remember seeing an article about the new ovens that McDonalds was supposedly installing in all of their stores, which would let them serve breakfast all day long -- which apparently is a frequent request. Never heard anything else about that.

          Great. More drunks in the drive-through.

            No, really?1 This is my dream comes true -- because I stay up late and wake up early.

                      I would just like to have breakfast extend until 11:00 am. I don't like the 10:30-11:00 no mans land.
