Select McDonald's Locations Are Bringing Back This Beloved Breakfast Item

Some locations have been spotted serving the morning classic.

The shakeup of McDonald's breakfast menu is one byproduct of the pandemic many people are still displeased with. For one, its All-day availability is gone, and for another, it has been simplified to exclude some of the most beloved items. But there might be signs that the chain is righting the course on breakfast.

One of the most mourned discontinued items in 2020 were the chain's bagels, but they are finally back at select locations. As of now, the bagels have been spotted in Ohio, Virginia, and Philadelphia.


The new release includes a lineup of four bagel-centric breakfast sandwiches that have returned for a limited time in July. The items include the Bacon, the Egg & Cheese; the Sausage, Egg & Cheese, the Egg & Cheese Bagel, and, of course, the highly anticipated Steak, Egg & Cheese sandwich, according to Fox 8 News.

Whether fans can expect a national rollout anytime soon is unclear. However, McDonald's has alluded to bringing the famous Steak, Egg & Cheese sandwich back last year on Twitter, so it could be something to look forward to.

And Mickey D's knows fans are tired of waiting. Right now, 25,000 people have petitioned to have the Steak, Egg, & Cheese sandwich back on the menu. All the same, while the bagels have made a comeback, All-day breakfast may never grace the permanent menu again.

In June of 2020, the National Owners Association, a group of about 80% of franchised locations, voted "no" to bringing back McDonald's breakfast all day, saying streamlining operations and quicker turnarounds were more important. So while all-day is off the table, McDonald's is open to bringing back some popular breakfast items, if only for a limited time–just don't expect to be able to eat them at noon.
