If you’re a fast food aficionado, you know that standard menus contain mere suggestions, and the true artist is free to mix and match according to her beautiful, dark and twisted fantasies.

So, abiding by the well-known American law that the customer is always right, McDonald’s has taken what is known to staff and diners as the “Secret Menu” and made it accessible to all with its first breakfast menu development since 2013: the “Triple Breakfast Stack.”

McDonald’s has heeded the help of hacks to create a new, bigger-than-ever sandwich that doubles down on the good stuff (A.K.A. meat) and allows customers to pick their preferred bun. The Triple Breakfast Stack includes two sausage patties, two slices of American cheese, Applewood-smoked bacon and an egg. From there, customers can order it on a toasted McMuffin, a biscuit or a syrupy set of McGriddles cakes.

While we are on the edge of our seat for this menu item that will be released beginning on November 1st, McDonald’s has no intention of letting us get comfortable.

“We love seeing the fun ways our customers and McDonald’s crew have been creating their own takes on our classics,” said the company’s manager of culinary innovation, Mike Haracz, in a statement. “We can’t wait to see what they come up with next—you never know what might end up on our menu.”

These breakfast behemoths will be available for a limited time, so get your fix while the gettin’ is good.
