Why You Should Order All McDonald's Sandwiches With A Steamed Bun

One of the best parts of cruising through the fast food drive-thru is getting a quick, filling meal, for an affordable price. Unlike some fancier or higher-end restaurants, fast food joints are usually happy to indulge in customizations and many even offer secret menu hacks. McDonald's is no stranger to working with customers to customize orders, even providing a menu explorer on its website where customers can add or take away anything on their sandwiches.

Now, more than ever, people can share their best tips and ordering hacks on social media. A McDonald's hack involving an ice cream coffee hack went viral on TikTok after showing customers how to make an affogato. McDonald's even celebrated customers' oddest creations when it launched its fan-inspired menu. Some of the more unique offerings included an egg McMuffin stuffed with hashbrowns and a double cheeseburger, Filet-O-Fish hybrid sandwich (per GMA). While there are plenty of hacks involving the drinks and desserts, the standouts come from simple tweaks to the menu's core items of burgers and sandwiches.

All you have to do is ask

Finance Buzz released its list of 20 hacks everyone should be using at McDonald's. One of the more clever hacks that most people may not know is to ask for a steamed bun for your next sandwich. Filet-O-Fish fans have been clued into the steamed and pillowy bun that graces the sandwich. The bun makes the sandwich even tastier because it's steamed instead of toasted. A woman tried the hack and uploaded the results to her Tiktok to show customers the correct way to order the steamed bun. She ordered a cheeseburger with a steamed bun and instantly fell in love. The bun is not only softer and squishier but almost double the height of its toasted counterpart.

If your local McDonald's doesn't oblige your request for a steamed bun, you could always order the Filet-O-Fish and a cheeseburger and DIY your own steamed bun cheeseburger. While you're at it, you can order some salt-free side fries to guarantee it's made fresh. All that's left to do is sit back and enjoy your hacked meal.
