I worked much of my youth at McDonald’s and knew that you could purchase patties seperately. Sometimes you feel like just buying a burger but the high price of a single burger puts you off. I bought 4 4-1 patties with ketchup today as the double beef and bacon and bacon was discontinued. I ate it with a fork and ketchup they put on it, not bad for a pound of meat.
I never did the math but always heavily suspected it’s cheaper to pay for the ingredients of a burger than a complete burger.
Yes they call it a 10 to 1 if you say these magic words they will believe you used to work for Macca’s and treat you better

Your mileage will vary it’s free to add to a seperate complete burger it’s usually free. If they want to charge for it for it you can go without it or pay whatever they ask

With these prices you can construct pretty much any burger in the restaurant for 30%-50% cheaper with some exceptions being Hamburger 🍔, Chicken 🐔 and Cheese 🧀 and low priced burgers.
If this deal does well I might publish the price hacks for Grilled Chicken and Angus burgers. I have included the link to the nutrition menu so you know what ingredients to ask for. Angus Patty is called 3 to 1(Around $3) and Grilled Chicken Breast(Around $3).
This is a long running hack deal until Macca’s decides to patch it.
