Mornings may be different for everyone. But there are two things about it that we all share – the need to start it right, and the need for a good breakfast. Good thing we can do both at McDonald’s.

On March 13, from 6am to 7am, at more than 450 McDonald’s restaurants, McDo celebrated National Breakfast Day and served free breakfast sanwiches via dine-in or drive-thru. Customers had a choice of either an Egg McMuffin, a Sausage McMuffin, or McDonald’s latest, the Burgerdesal.

An Egg McMuffin is a toasted, buttered English muffin with a fresh egg and bacon and cheese. Sausage McMuffin has a juicy all-beef sausage and melty cheese. Burgerdesal, Mcdo’s latest offering, is a soft pan de sal with a tasty burger patty inside matched with a sweet-flavored sauce.
