McDonald's Talk of LJ



Okay... today i'm going to give you a recipe you all should try that makes for delicious break food! I feel like Marta fucking Stewart right now!

anywho... take a 8' flour tortia shell that we use for the breakfast burritos. put it in the filet stemmer and press "go"!

Put the stemmed tortia shell on a double cheeseburger wrap. Add on Ranch Sauce, and shredded lettuce, and you can even cut up some tomatoes and put those on there.

take a piece of spicy chicken breast and cut it into small slices and add to the tortia shell. and wrap it up, and enjoy!

Try it and tell me what you think!

I've done that before a lot - but with turkey deli meat and mustard... and.. without the filet steamer... what does the steamer add? this is interesting.

Also. An Orange Julis. 21 once cold cup, ice cream, orange juice, put on a flurry lid, and mix it carefully in the flurry machine. mmmmmmmmm.

Or, bruschetta. Whole wheat TDS bun, with cut up tomatos and slivered onions and parmasan cheese, put in the oven under the pie timer, and voila, bruschetta. delicous.

We used to make quesadillas... 2 tortilla shells - sliced grilled chicken - cheddar jack cheese - tomatoes - lettuce - whatever you like. . . then grill it under the 4:1 clamshell.... And it was awesome when we still had chicken fajitas cause then we had sour cream as well....
Of course, I was a crew person when we did that. And if I caught my employees doing that now I'd probably be suspending some people.... I also highly recommend oreo cookie shakes using either choc or vanilla shakes and oreo flurry topping. At least you have a way to ring that up on the register

This is SUCH a good idea! The Bruschetta was FANTASTIC tonight! Thank you!!

Alternatively, this is what I've come up with to share with y'all. Some were of my creation, some were not. And a fried-egg sandwich didn't make the list, but is something I had a few days ago with the toasted deli rolls, some eggs, hollandaise sauce and two strips of bacon. I mean... they have a breakfast TDS in Australia, why can't we? ;) If I think of more, I'll let y'all know. Because I just KNOW I'm missing some.

One order of hotcakes, heated.
1oz ladle of strawberry sauce
one serving of soft serve - optional

Kinda obvious, but ladle strawberries onto hotcakes. Top with ice cream. (As requested by every gal who's ever been pregnant whilst working at our store.)

Caesar Wraps
One portion Crispy chicken, chopped
Two tortilla shells
Leaf lettuce
Caesar sauce
Two strips of bacon
Parmesan cheese.

Assemble much like a fajita, but do not heat.

Carrie's "I'm-Tryin'-To-Be-An-Omlette"
Three eggs
diced tomatoes
slivered onions
green peppers
celery (when you've got it)
bacon bits
grill seasoning
shredded montery/cheddar cheese

Scramble eggs in a 16oz cold cup with a fork. Place vegetables on grill, and pour eggs on top. Shake grill seasoning onto eggs (desired amount dependant on person eating the eggs). With a clean spatula, flip the egg mixture over when it starts to become white-ish around the edges. It's probably going to slop over the 'edges' a bit, and that's ok. Serve when browned on both sides. Top with cheese.
***SAFETY ISSUE! Be sure to steam your grill when done!

One portion Chicken McGrill, chopped
two torilla shells
shredded carrots
slivered onions
green peppers
grill seasoning
three slices tomatoes, quartered
12oz water

Assemble all contents onto a breakfast base (except for seasoning). Place on grill. With spatula, make a small "pile". Pour water onto the "pile". Sauté until water is evaporated. Assemble fajitas using hot mixture.
Variation: Do the same thing, but add half a packet of barbecue and half a packet of hotcake syrup to the mix before adding the water. This is very good. Kinda… mesquite-ish.

Peanut Butter Fudge Sundae </i>This was SO popular when I made it up, that at the time, we had to BAN the damn thing!</i>
two shots hot fudge
five ounces soft serve
two packets of peanut butter

Place peanut butter in original sealed containers in the HLZ five minutes before going on break. When break commences, open one package of peanut butter and pour into the bottom of a sundae cup. Add one shot of hot fudge. Fill with ice cream. Top with another shot of hot fudge. Open remaining packet of peanut butter and pour over top. (At this point both portions of peanut butter should be melted enough to resemble a liquid.) I'm tell you, this is the MOST amazing concoction... simply amazing.

PB&J Sundae
two ounces of strawberries
five ounces soft serve
two packets of peanut butter

This came about after the Peanut Butter Hot Fudge Sundae. Again, place peanut butter packets in the HLZ five minutes before break. Assemble in the same manner as previous sundae.

Apple Pie McFlurry
one hot apple pie
one small McFlurry cup of soft serve
one shot caramel

Fill McFlurry cup half way with ice cream. Crumble an apple pie and place in cup. Quickly fill remainder of cup with soft serve. Add one shot of caramel - then mix. *works well with feature flavours as well, though the caramel may be omitted. I really wish we had pumpkin for me to try this with...

Barbecue Tortilla Pizza</u>
two tortilla shells
two 10:1 patties, chopped
one packet Barbecue sauce
diced tomatoes
slivered onions
green peppers
shredded Montery / Cheddar cheese

Using some of the cheese, place in between two tortilla shells on a parchment lined pie pan. Usinga sundae spoon, coat the tortilla with barbecue sauce (may use more than one packet if desired). Top with meat, then vegetables, then remainder of cheese. Cook under "ready baked biscuit (9min)" or "Baked Pie" (12min).

Spicy Strips
five individual Chicken Select Strips
three packets Spicy Hot Sauce
two packets of ketchup
one shot mustard
one sugar packet (if you like a sweet n' spicy flavour)

Mix the sauces, mustard and sugar in the lid of a breakfast base. Taking the strips (from frozen), place them in the mixture until well coated. Place on a double-parchment paper lined pie pan and bake under "Baked Muffins"(33min). Be sure to test the centre with a pyrometre to ensure they're above 165F. Enjoy with ranch dipping sauce, or alone.

12oz Orange Juice
Orange drink
Strawberry Passion Awareness Fruitopia

Using a 21oz cold cup, fill with 12oz of orange juice. Then fill the remainder of the cups with equal portions of the following three ingredients. Enjoy.

Frozen Hot Chocolate
16oz Hot chocolate
1 shot cream (for medium sized drinks)
1-2 ounces soft serve ice cream
Ice (crushed if you want to spend time doing it.)

In an 18oz hot cup, pour 16oz Hot chocolate. Add cream. Stir. Add ice cream to mixture and carefully stir with a flurry spoon. Add ice and stir.

Ice Cream pizza
6 oz soft serve ice cream
Oreo cookies
Six packets margarine
One shot hot fudge
two shots hot caramel

Melt margarine in original packets in HLZ. Mix with oreo cookies in a big breakfast base. Chill. Top oreo mixture with hot fudge and one shot of hot caramel. Spread. Chill. Top with ice cream and chill. Drizzle with hot caramel.

OT: observations about organizations

I'm getting hungry reading these posts sitting home at my computer eating a cold can of peas and diced carrots. Can I say something off topic and make some philosophical observations?

I always believed that in hierarchical organizations the people who rose to the top were those interested in power and control while the people actually doing the work actually knew much more about the business and would do a much better job if they were put in charge of the organization. I learned this from my experience working and in churches. The posts in this thread prove this point better than anything else I can think of: the people working at Mac D's know much more about preparing food than any corporate type ever will.

Orange Creamsicle
Orange drink
Soft serve ice cream

In a 21 oz cup, mix ice cream with orange drink. Pour into three 12 oz cups. Insert sundae spoon into each and place in the freezer. Remove when frozen.

Fruit Salad
Four ounces frozen strawberries
1 ounce frozen blueberries
1 package Apple Slices, chopped
2 ounces mandarin oranges, drained
1 ounce yogurt
1 ounce granola (optional)

In a side salad base, mix fruit with yogurt. Top with granola, if desired.

Here from BoingBoing

It's been a while since I worked in McDonald's, but I had my own favorite burger.

Dried Onions - Cheese melts into better than the fresh onions.
BBQ Sauce - from the Mc Rib
Quarter Pounder

Flippin' McRib! Yum! I got here via BB too, and haven't worked @ McD's for a while either.

But I haven't seen the Donut. If you make the biscuits from dough still, take a bit of the dough, form it into a ring, and fry in the fry vat. Sprinkle with sugar. Devour delicious donuts!

Outback Steakhouse

I used to work at Outback Steakhouse and we did the same thing and made our own recipes. My favorite was taking a 5oz chicken breast and breading it with the Bloomin Onion flour then deep frying it. Made a WONDERFUL spicy chicken sandwich.

From Boing Boing

I also don't work at McD's, but we concoted the Chicken, Egg and Cheese McMuffin at about 3am, one morning. The local McD's was staying open all night. They did the limited menu until about 3, when they switched over to breakfast. We went through and asked them to make the sandwich, which they said they couldn't do.

So we ordered the $.99 McChicken, drove back around 5 minutes later and ordered the Egg McMuffin. Add the chicken patty to the Egg McMuffin and you have the perfect, late night, post-bar meal.

Here from boing boing as well.

I never got too creative back when I worked at the Mac, but let me tell you, McDonald Chili Cheese Fries are the best fries you will ever have. Only able to have them in the winter, sadly. Put some fries on a pancake tray, rip up and sprinkle around one or two pieces of cheese, and pour that chili on there.

Tricks with Nuggets

Try these tasty one-pop morsels sometime:

Nugget, pickle on top, wrapped in 1/2 slice sheese

Nugget, Mac sauce shot, pickle

Also -

Throw some fresh onion (from the 1/4 lb'rs) and green pepper (fajitas) on the grill for about 30 seconds, make a 1/4 lb'r with mustard, mayo, barbacue sauce (from chicken tenders), lettuce, tomato, and throw the grilled mix on top. SW burger anyone? Made this about 12 years ago - before McD started getting fancy :)

hmm, i never got that creative, but i did learn to tell the difference between the white meat and dark meat mcnuggets (before they started doing all white meat), so i'd make myself an all-white 6pc. i was also a fan of the english muffin and mcdonaldland cookies and other things that aren't really on the front menu.

restaurant refugee from Boing Boing

I think everyone has done their share of counter time. Mine was as a manager of a Hardees. After a couple of days, the last thing you want to eat is a hamburger, or some variation thereof. So, since I was the manager, on nights we were slow or were going to have a large after closing project, I would make real food for my crew. I'd run over to the grocery store behind the restaurant and pick up stuff like peppers, onions, italian sausage, rice, spaghetti, or even shrimp. Then after cleaning the heck out of the grill, I'd get started. You'd be shocked how my turnover rate for employees went down. Sometimes, a manager showing a little compassion fo employees goes a long way.

I used to encourage creativity, and found the benefits out weighed the liabilities.

If you're still out there, plugging away at McD or BK or even Hardee's, keep trying new things!

Oh yeah, one of my favorite things to do in the morning was to bring in a little popcorn shrimp (the frozen precooked stuff works great). Pour egg on the griddle per normal omlette instructions. Add shrimp, cheese, and grilled onions. Then take both halves of a precut bun, spead butter on the cut sides and put on griddle until golden brown. Put egg on bun and enjoy.

Re: restaurant refugee from Boing Boing

What about us old Taco bell staff? I remember, years ago (back when we had Crispas and not twists) we'd worked out a deal with our local McDonalds across the parking lot. We'd barter Cinnamon Crispas for Vanilla icecream and some carmel sauce. Let me tell you, THAT was heavenly. When fast food giants work together? Oh yeah...good stuff.

When it came to Nachos, we never used the liquid cheese either. We'd put chips in a mexican pizza tray, cover with green onions, steak, and cheese and through that in the pizza oven for a double cook. Top them with tomato and some sour cream and you had some killer nachos.

A friend of ours worked at BK and used to make us "Neopolitan" shakes by layering the shake flavors for us. That was always tasty too.

yep another one from boingboing... never worked at McDonalds but i've been around the block.

Auntie Anne's peeps - hook up some dough rolled out w/ some marinara topping and parmesan cheese. tada! pizza. try cinnamon sugar pretzels with the glazin' raisen glaze, darn tasty. any soda + dutch ice is pretty tasty too.

Dairy Queeners - stick a fried fish fillet on the steam table to loosen the breading off. Lemon packets, salt and pepper. Microwave to heat up. now you have something half palatable.

cheese fries are an easy one - fries, cheese and bacon from the salads.

chop up some burger, throw some ketchup, mustard, and onion together and you have a sloppy joe. sorta.

and if you happen to go to college and must eat at the cafeteria - sandwhiches can always be broken down and toasted to perk them up, strawberries from the waffle bar and perk up dried out cake, toppings from the salad bar sometimes can work for pizzas...

French Toast

Take the middle bun out of a Big Mac bun, dip in the folded egg mix stuff and grill! Then put the rest of the bun in with the quarter pounder buns to decrease your waste cost.

Also, try deep frying the tortilla shells to make hard taco shells (sort of)

Flavored milkshakes are generally made by just adding a flavored syrup to a vanilla shake mix. The soda from your soda tap is just syrup mixed with carbonated water. At the Arby's I used to work at, I found that I could push on the soda tap just right to just get syrup to come out, and I would mix that syrup with vanilla shakes for slightly unique flavors. My favorite was Lipton's Iced Tea syrup. Mimicking the popularity of green tea ice cream in Japan, it gave you a nice blend of sweet and bitter flavors.

The other simple Arby's pleasure - frying up mozzerella sticks, cutting them into thin slices, and putting them into roast beef sandwiches along with the marinara dipping sauce.
