The McDonald's hamburger was created for your picky child. It's the least thrilling item on the menu: pickles and onions, with too little ketchup and mustard to moisten your palate.
I adore the McChicken for nostalgic reasons. It was there for me in high school when I'd have a McChicken and a McDouble for $2. (RIP the Dollar Menu).
The McDonald's cheeseburger is a classic. It works. That magical slice of American cheese that boosts the flavor tenfold.
The Crispy Chicken Sandwich lacks the punch of its spicy version thanks to the pepper sauce. While more isn't necessarily better, a simple mayo spread.
The crispy filet at McDonald's isn't as crispy as its competitors, but the deluxe version's mayo, shredded lettuce, and Roma tomatoes provide some appeal.
The lettuce and tomato dominate the chicken and sauce (!!!) on this sandwich.
Add another patties to the cheeseburger and you've got a McDouble. In terms of meat and sauce, the McDouble beats the cheeseburger.
A double cheeseburger has two slices of cheese, but a McDouble has only one.
The Quarter Pounder's beef is already well-seasoned, so adding bacon is a sodium overkill. A different bacon, seasoned with brown sugar and with more fat, would have worked.
