With lockdown conditions in place across the UK, restaurants, takeaways and bars have closed. This has meant the luxuries of nipping to McDonald’s for a burger have been taken away.
On April 1, an April Fool spread quickly across social media announcing the reopening of McDonalds, however the fast-food chain quickly put the rumour to bed.
A tweet from the official McDonald’s UK Twitter account said: “Lots of people getting in touch about a certain post circulating tonight.
“It’s fake, we are not reopening next week and any official announcements would come from this page and would spell the brand name correctly.”
The date McDonald’s is due to reopen is currently unknown.
4. Season the patties on both sides with salt and black pepper.
5. When very hot, add four of the patties to the pan
6. Cook for about one minute, until a brown crust develops.
7. Flip and continue cooking for 60 to 90 seconds longer, until the bottoms also have a crust.
8. Repeat with the remaining four patties.
To assemble the burgers, spread a little Big Mac sauce over the bottom base.
Top with some chopped onion, shredded lettuce, slice of cheese, beef patty and some pickle slices.
Top with the middle bun layer, and spread with more Big Mac sauce, onion, lettuce, pickles, beef patty and then finish with more sauce.
Finish with the burger bun top to serve.
