Grilled cheese at McDonald’s? You bet. If you bat your eyelashes and say “pretty please” enough times, you may be able to snag the secret menu sandwich, which is especially good news for those of you who need more meatless options. It’s surprisingly easy to order a grilled cheese from McDonald’s – or any fast food chain for that matter, and once we let you in on the secret, you’ll wonder why you never thought of it before.
How To Order the McDonald’s Grilled Cheese
We’re about to drop a truth bomb. Any restaurant that has bread and cheese in their kitchen can whip up a grilled cheese for you. It may not taste like your grandma’s five-cheese gourmet cheese toastie on homemade sourdough bread, but it will be a grilled cheese. At McDonald’s, ordering one is easy peasy. Just ask for a hamburger without the burger patty. It’s up to you whether you want any toppings on your burger-turned-grilled-cheese, so be sure to specify if you want the onions, pickles, ketchup, and mustard that normally comes on a burger from Mickey D’s.
Oh, and one more thing – you know how the cheese isn’t always fully melted when you unwrap your hamburger? To avoid getting a cold piece of American cheese on a lukewarm bun, be sure to ask for a toasted bun to ensure the cheese gets nice and gooey.
McDonald’s Grilled Cheese Price
Prices may vary by location, but grilled cheese off the McDonald’s secret menu will usually cost you 99 cents. Look at you ordering off the “dollar menu.”
