50 years ago, someone at McDonald's came up with the best breakfast invention ever! The Egg McMuffin! The conversation may have gone like this... "OK, Ronald, we need something to jumpstart our breakfast business! It's called break FAST so we need to give them something they can eat fast and on the go! What if we took breakfast items and made a burger or sandwich-type breakfast that people could eat on the go! We can even make the eggs round like a patty! I'm a genius, Ronald!!" And that quite possibly is how the Egg Mc Muffin was born. The true version of the story is that franchise owner, Herb Peterson, wanted to create a McDonald's version of Eggs Benedict but the signature Hollandaise sauce proved to be a challenge in their fast-paced environment. Sliced American cheese and some Canadian bacon was the perfect combo in his mind and clearly, it worked because here we are talking about it 50 years later.

To celebrate 50 years of breakfast deliciousness, the fast-food juggernaut, McDonald's, is offering their world-famous Egg McMuffin for just 63 cents on Thursday, November 18th at all of their Northern Colorado locations and around the country! All you need to have is the McDonald's App, to either mobile order with or have them scan at the drive-thru window or front counter, and you'll be all set!

I don't know that I could pick a favorite breakfast sandwich, but if I absolutely had to choose, I think I could be happy with my decision to bad the OG, the Egg McMuffin, as my official go-to! Add in a Mickey D's hashbrown and I'm sold! Happy 50th to the McDonald's Egg McMuffin!
