The YardBird  #AppetiteForTheArches

The YardBird. Extraordinary creation by Chef Clay Miller

The gourmet bites were crafted using McDonalds ingredients and the menu had a full range of different offerings. My top favorites were the so called YardBird with bacon, quail egg, green tomato and McGriddle cake; breakfast in a bite! Extraordinary creation by Chef Clay Miller.
