Easy Fakeaway McDonalds Breakfast Recipes

Save money by making a cheaper fakeaway McDonalds style breakfast at home with these quick and easy fakeaway breakfast recipes!

In my house, a cheeky McDonalds breakfast is a real guilty pleasure of ours. It’s something that we all enjoy and so although I probably shouldn’t admit it out loud here on the blog… we do love the occasional McDonalds breakfast treat at the weekend!

With the cost of living getting ever tighter though, I’ve been looking for ways to save money on our food bills. Cutting down on our occasional takeaway treats and replacing them with homemade versions is a good place to start, as it will save cash whilst we still get to enjoy some of our favourite food treats. 

I plan to share several easy fakeaway recipes here on the blog to help others in the same boat, and today, after lots of delicious recipe testing, I’m sharing several of our quick and easy McDonalds breakfast fakeaway recipes. I will admit that nothing quite beats the real thing though, but these recipes do come very very close!

To give you an idea of the possible money savings, I’ve broken down the cost per item based on current prices in Tesco, purely because that’s the closest supermarket to me and the one that I use most frequently. You may be able to cut down on costs even more by shopping around. Please note that prices are current as of today, the 8th September 2022, but may change after I publish this.

As I have multiple breakfast recipes for you, I’ll share an overview of all our fakeaway McDonalds Breakfast recipes here on this page and you can click through on the individual recipe names for the full recipes and detailed costing breakdowns.
