Aussie Man's Frozen McDonald's Burger Breakfast Hack Divides Opinion On Facebook
Basically, the man waits until McDonald's start selling burgers for $1 then freezes a whole bunch of them and reheats them for breakfast.
Hmm, it doesn't exactly sound like the breakfast of champions, but it is certainly a decent way of saving a couple of quid.
The man shared his controversial tip in a closed Facebook group and said that after trialling his idea he'd discovered that the hamburgers were 'safe to eat' after being reheated.
He explained: "So when McDonald's have their hamburger for $1 specials, I load up and freeze them and microwave them for breakfast.
"The deal runs from 10:30am to midnight on the loose change menu but I have breakfast before I head out to work at 7:30am.
"Anyone do anything similar? It's a 250 calorie breakfast."
250 calories actually isn't that bad at breakfast time, now that you mention it.
Since he shared this online, thousands of people have commented on the post with a wide variety of reactions to the man's idea.
Whilst some have said things like 'my kind of meal prep' and hailed it as a 'genius idea', others aren't so keen.
Of course, you knew that already, didn't you? This is the internet we're talking about, after all.
One person commented: "Oh my god how are they still edible."
Another added: "This is seriously disgusting. You're just being lazy and it's not a good breakfast option."
Well, it turns out that this guy isn't alone in his thinking.
Last week, a woman from Adelaide shared a similar Maccies-related life hack in another closed Facebook group.
She said: "$1 hamburgers freeze well. Good for easy cheap lunch/dinner, getting my red meat intake."
Once again, some folks weren't impressed. We can only assume that they are completely perfect and never eat anything unhealthy whatsoever.
One such online angel offered: "Buy some fruit with that instead of contributing to your medical expenses by eating junk."
Wow, friendly advice.
Whilst not exactly leaping to her defence, someone then pointed out that fruit can be - in some cases - more expensive than getting a burger from Maccies.
Another member of the Facebook group said: "That is a big problem these days, junk is cheaper than the healthy options and it's very sad."
Either way, the woman has now deleted the original post.
