The double beef burger – which first appeared on the menu last year – is topped with two slices of melted pepper jack cheese, smoked bacon and a slice of tomato, lettuce and slivered onions and BBQ sauce.

What’s more, McDonald’s is also adding a Twirl McFlurry into their rotation of sweet treats.

Available in a Regular (£1.69) and Mini (£1.19) sizes, the creamy vanilla ice cream has chunks of Cadbury’s Twirl swirled into the mix and topped with a generous amount of milk chocolate sauce. 

However, these three limited edition items will only be available to order for six weeks – so customers have until the end of November to give them a try.

Reacting to the news on Twitter, one fan wrote: ‘Mini potato waffles to be added to the McDonald’s breakfast menu next week… THIS IS NOT A DRILL.’

Another added: ‘You just know the McDonald’s potato waffles are going to be elite.’ 

‘McDonald’s are bringing in potato waffles at breakfast,’ a third said. ‘My life is complete.’

Last night, the fast food chain celebrated the launch of their new McCrispy chicken burger – which is also hitting stores on October 19 – in a star-studded gaming event in Manchester attended by Love Islander’s Olivia Attwood and Dami Hope.

The new addition to the menu is the brand’s first permanent chicken burger they’ve launched in 16 years and will replace the Chicken Legend later this month.

After being marinated in cayenne and black pepper, the crunchy chicken fillet is then topped with a squeeze of lemon and sandwiched in a artisan sourdough bun.
