Can you freeze McDonald's Food?

Can you freeze McDonald’s Food? If you live in Independence, KY (or close) I wanted to share with you a one day special for this Saturday, September 26th from 8:00-2:00 p.m.  Hash browns are going to be .25 cents and small fries are going to be .25 cents!  What a great way to treat your kids after/before soccer or on the weekend!

Can you freeze McDonald’s Food?

I am planning to buy 20 hash browns and freeze them.  I have never tried this before, but Peyton loves McDonald’s hash browns.  I will take them out of the paper (but save the wrappers as I am afraid, they won’t be the same to him without the wrappers) and freeze them on a cookie sheet.  Then I will place the frozen hash browns in a freezer safe container.  I will let you know how it goes!  I am always looking for quick breakfasts on the go and he really thinks it is a special treat to get a McDonald’s breakfast.  At $.25 you can’t go wrong.

I also noticed that every Thursday from 4-8 p.m. that they offer a manager’s special, and you can get a hamburger or cheeseburger happy meal for $1.50.  I have been told that you can freeze the hamburgers/cheeseburgers.  I was told to remove the pickle first and remove it from the original wrapper and then place in a freezer safe container.

This person buys the apple dippers instead of fries and then uses the juice box/milk.  I wanted to pass this money saving idea onto all of you!  Plus, she has toys to use for rewards/incentives or even to hand out at Halloween!

UPDATE:  The freezer method works – I have tried it on the hash browns and my son loved them.  I did end up keeping the wrappers.
