Ex-McDonald’s chef reveals secret menu ‘monstrosity’ — and it’s a Mc-Ménage à Trois

Oh, it’s bangin’?

Forcing two rival sets of protein — beef and poultry — to come together in palate-pleasing peace and mouth-watering harmony is a Mickey D’s “monstrosity” that only true fast-foodies know about.

Until now, that is.

“The McGangBang,” began ex-McDonald’s chef Mike Haracz, raving over the secret menu sandwich offered by the renown burger hut.

“If you’ve never heard of it,” he continued in a trending TikTok description with over 24,000 views, “it’s a double cheeseburger with a McChicken — it’s actually better with a spicy McChicken — in the middle of it.”

Haracz, virally known for unveiling some of Mcdonald’s’ most hush-hush formulas — like how to recreate the restaurant’s flawless French fry recipe at home or whether “shrinkflation” has caused a size reduction of its Fillet-o-Fish dish — went on to publicize the little known facts about the meaty mega-bite.

“It is part of a secret menu that McDonald’s had, and it was much more popular when the double cheeseburger, or the McDouble, and the McChickens were on the Dollar Menu,” he explained. “So you could get this massive burger and assemble it yourself for like two bucks.”

Haracz then challenged on-the-go grubbers to order the fatty patty-pile up during their next trip to the drive-thru.

“Everybody who is part of McDonald’s knows what it is, whether they want to admit it or not — or call it that,” he said. “I’m wondering, if you got to a McDonald’s and order a McGangBang, will they know what it is? Will they know how to make it? How will the give it to you?”

“The other thing I’d like to know,” the bearded burger guru added, “if you do order a McGangBang from your local McDonald’s, how much does it cost now?.”

“Back in the day, you could order this monstrosity for $2.”

However, unfortunately for grease-loving gourmands, the price of the double-decked delectable has more than doubled.

“The [McGangBang] is still my regular order. used to be $4 for two of them. Costs me around $9 for both now,” chimed a less-than-cheery chowhound.

“I got two I had to assemble myself and a large fry for $15,” another whined.

“We always called it the Mcénage à Trois,” joked a goofy eater.

But others warned that asking for the cheekily nicknamed snack could land some folks in a pickle.

“Depending on the McDonald’s,” penned a cautious commentator, “you may find yourself in a situation you were not prepared for.”
