    Who does this?

    I went through a McD's drive through this morning and picked up two sausage mcmuffins (dollar menu!) for $2.18

    The server asked if I would like jelly with it, after the immediate "WTF how gross" thought passed, I wondered how common this might be.

    Sausage, american cheese, butter-flavor infused english muffin......how does grape jelly fit in with that flavor combo?

    Never recalled having been asked this question at other McD's, I am wondering if it is a cultural, or regional thing.

    Never done it with a McD's breakfast sandwich, but I usually add some sort of jelly/jam to my homemade ones. The salt and sweet combination really works for me. The wife...not so much. I'm more of a strawberry preserves kind of guy, but grape works too.

    Why do you care what other people put on their food?

    I can tell you that jam or jelly on biscuits prior to putting sausage gravy with lots of pepper in it is nothing short of awesome. My favorite is biscuits, butter, blackberry jam, and sausage gravy. Amazingly good.

    I learned the jam/gravy thing from a woman who called me Number Two Son. She had one son (an only child) who I was friends with and I'd often stay at their house when I was in my early teens. I even lived there for six weeks when our home got heavily smoke damaged and the rest of my family was living at a Ramada Inn. She was a fantastic southern cook and made her gravy with a pound of heavily peppered bacon. She used all the fat too, and made a gravy that a spoon would stand up in, very thick.

    She and her husband would put jam on their biscuits prior to placing a dollop of gravy on them. At first I thought it was gross but was convinced to try it and I've never turned back. Haven't had B&G for over six months though, stupid low-carb diet. :rofl:

    My son always puts grape jelly on any biscuit with egg.

    I'm not much of an egg eater, but once in a while I'll put jelly on a sausage or ham biscuit.

    If a bunch of people say "It's good, try it" that sometimes make me think they might be onto something.

    I don't care what other people eat so much as curious if it is popular, which may indicate it is popular for a reason.

    This particular example is something I never heard of in nearly 40 years of egg McMuffin eating, so am I missing something?

    YES!!! Grape Jelly on a Whataburger "breakfast on a Bun" or the MCdee's "Sausage egg and cheese biscuit" goes great! As long as it is not a Jack n the Box breakfast sandwhich cause they put mayo on them for some reason.

    I'm amazed at how peacefully this has gone. I thought this question would rip GT apart.

    Also: Yeah, it's pretty good.

    The rule is:

    Grape jelly on sausage biscuits, and
    Strawberry on ham biscuits.

    On a similar note, my wife recently made grilled cheese sandwiches on sourdough bread, using cheddar, apples, and strawberry jam. It was very, very tasty.
