Who the Hell Makes Sausage and Eggs With Sugar?

McDonald's, that's who.

I'm at a two-day conference. Yesterday, the conference started early, so I ate breakfast in the hotel restaurant. It was a breakfast buffet and it wasn't terribly cheap. So this morning, I walked down the street to McDonald's and ordered a sausage-egg muffin.

The fucking thing was loaded with sugar. Or high-fructose corn syrup. What moron came up with the idea of pouring sugar into sausage patties and eggs? It was bloody awful.

I haven't had breakfast in a McDonald's in many years. It's going to be a shitload of years longer before I repeat that experience.

Quite a few sausage products incorporate some sugars; the purpose is generally because sugar helps the ground meat keep a pretty pink color longer. But yeah, McDonalds goes completely nuts with the HFCS routine.

This is just what I thought with the introduction of "McGriddles", one of the more disgusting things to come out of the Mammon McDonald's Corp. A wad of bacon or a sausage patty, scrambled eggs and "American cheese" (yes, legally we can say it's cheese!), served between two McGriddle cakes, which are small pancakes with syrup added to the mix. Apparently 550 calories and a colon-clogging 33 grams of fat.

Now, where do you suppose the idea for this came from? Did someone in the marketing department think that people who eat at McDonald's really do not have the time or coordination to eat things separately, or were they perhaps slumming it in an actual McDonald's one day and saw some obese moron who preferred to eat with his hands shoving the components of his whole Hotcakes n' Sausage tray into a huge syrup-soaked sandwich and stuffing it down his capacious maw? Equally probable to me but we'll never know the truth.

Given what McDonalds is capable of, just imagine what they could do with scrapple.

Haven't been to a McDonald's in over 20 years. They haven't got anything I'm interested in.

Read the labels, you'll find HFCS(sugar) in places you'd never imagine.

I eat the "big breakfast" there occasionally, and the coffee's not bad. Those are about the only things I'll touch there anymore, though.

Scrapple? Hard to imagine it would be any worse than my only serving of the stuff.
