McDonald's Fan Recreates The Cheese Bites At Home With Five Ingredients

With McDonald's chains shutting up shop across the country due to the coronavirus pandemic, people have had to get a little more inventive if they want a fast-food fix.

They've been teaching themselves to make chicken nuggets from scratch, whipping up their very own Big Mac sauce and even attempting the burgers themselves.

But what about the unsung hero on the Maccies menu? We are, of course, talking about the infamous cheese bites.

Keen to get their fix of the oh so oozy delicacy, Rees Edwards-Cuaulier, from Devon, attempted to whip them up with his girlfriend Kirsty using just five ingredients, and shared the recipe on TikTok.

To make the cheese bites, Rees simply whisked an egg before dunking a Babybel cheese in flour and then rolling it into the egg mixture.

Then, he dipped the cheese into a bowl of breadcrumbs and shallow fried it in oil, so it had that crispy outer shell we all know and love.

In case you were in any doubt about how delicious and melted the inside was, Kirsty then demonstrated by tearing one apart. Mmmmm.

McDonald's temporarily shut down all UK stores on 24th March, and people have been craving it *bad* ever since.

Alongside the chain's much loved burgers and sides, others have been hankering for its breakfast specialities, such as the Egg and Cheese McMuffin and their Hash Browns.

So, to help us survive the lockdown, the chain released the official recipe so we can recreate it at home.

It's not just Maccies people are knocking up at home, as people have also been attempting their own takes on several cult restaurant classics, from Wagamama Katsu Curry to Pizza Express Dough Balls.

By the end of this quarantine, we'll be putting all their chefs out of business!
