The McDouble Down

jonnythan Posts: 10,161 Member
I love McDoubles and I love McChickens, but they can be difficult to fit in because the calorie:protein ratio isn't quite optimal.

I do, however, have no trouble fitting in a Double Down every now and then. Problem is those are $8 and KFCs aren't all that common around here.

So.... how about I make my own Double Down. And instead of just two pieces of chicken around cheese and bacon, let's put a whole double cheeseburger in there.

Thus the McDouble Down is born. One McDouble with two McChicken patties for buns. McDouble + Double Down = McDouble Down. Add some bacon and ketchup as desired.

As pictured, 570 calories with 36 grams of protein.

    My hero!

    P.S. I'm pretty sure you can order any of the sandwiches without buns. Not sure if they take money off in that case, but it's worth checking.

    Ohhh wow... you are making me miss fast food. I'll go make one of this though but make it healthier, baked chicken and grilled burgers, probably won't be as good though. The grease makes it good after all.

    Your McChicken looks pretty different to ours (I'm in England) but it looks good! Do you get bacon in your mcdouble? We only do about once a year for a couple of weeks. This meal calls out for a crispy rasher of bacon (or 2!)

    Edit- just saw the picture of the double down. I want one, and I'm definitely going to go to KFC this weekend to see if they do them here :)
