Fancy a free breakfast? You’ll have to be quick…

McDonald's cheesy bacon flatbread is made up of cooked bacon and melted cheese in a warm folded white flatbread.

It was introduced during McDonald's breakfast time menu last year, and originally got mixed reactions from Twitter users who were sorry to see the back of the egg snack wrap.

But many were won round in the end.

‘I actually didn’t like the look of the picture,’ said one McDonald’s fan. ‘But when I tried it OMG it was absolutely delicious! Soft tasty bread, melted cheese and bacon was yummy! Love it.’

The flatbreads are relatively low on calories, with 298 per serving. They usually cost £1.49 each, but until Sunday you can get one absolutely free when you order any hot drink through the free My McDonald’s App.

And since you can pick up an espresso for just 79p, or a cup of tea for 99p, that sounds like a pretty sweet deal…

You can use the app to order, customise and even pay for your order before you get to your nearest restaurant – it can detect when you’re within 100 metres of a McDonald’s branch and will send your order straight to the kitchen for you!

You can claim your free flatbread any morning this week, as long as it’s before 10.30am. It doesn’t matter whether you’ve used the app before or not, but you’ll only be able to claim one free flatbread per person.

If you’ve already scoffed your free cheesy flatbread, how does a hash brown burger grab you? A savvy McDonald’s customer recently shared their ingenious McDonald’s menu hack – get to the till at 10.30am on the dot and you can order hash browns from the breakfast menu and a cheeseburger from the main menu at the same time. Mind blown.

And if you haven’t claimed your free flatbread yet, what are you waiting for? The early bird catches the cheesy melted goodness…
