McDonald’s Hong Kong has just unveiled its two new creations that are sure to have your mouth watering before breakfast: the “Bacon Macaroni and Cheese Toastie” and the “Corn and Cheese Champignon Toastie.”
Let’s break this down. A toastie is a grilled sandwich; so far, nothing special. But the “Bacon Macaroni and Cheese Toastie” is exactly what it sounds like. Make delicious mac and cheese with bacon pieces mixed in, and serve between two slices of bread. Maybe not the typical way to eat a pasta dish, but it sounds pretty perfect. And better yet? It’s made with two different cheeses for a toastie you “just can’t resist,” Delish reports.
As for the “Corn And Cheese Champignon Toastie,” you might be left a bit more confused (yet still hungry). Apparently, “corn and cheese” isn’t on the ingredients list; “corn cheese” is a sweet Korean dish, usually a side dish served at restaurants, and it’s pretty easy to make. It consists of sweet corn, mozzarella cheese, butter, mayo, sugar, and parsley as an optional garnish that doesn’t appear to be on the Mickey D’s version. The fast food version instead adds champignons, a fancy name for the common white mushroom. McDonald’s calls it “a bite of unimaginable flavor.”
These aren’t the first toasties on the Hong Kong menu though; you can also snag a “Chicken, Ham and Egg Toastie,” which the website describes as “the perfect combination of chicken, ham, egg, cheese and mayo, to start your morning with the perfect bite.”
And while pictures of the new sandwiches haven’t yet popped up on foodie Instagram, McDonald’s Hong Kong has already incorporated several corn-and pasta-based items into its menu that are favorites in the region, including the breakfast pasta soup. So are you on that plane to Hong Kong yet?
