Bloke makes McDonald’s fakeaway at home as he’s pining for burgers and fries & people reckon it’ll be great for kids
WITH food shortages and closures of fast-food chains nationwide, people are using their time indoors to experiment in the kitchen.
In a bid to treat himself to a little takeaway indulgence one bloke decided to recreate his favourite McDonald's combo from home complete with a cheeseburger, fries and strawberry thickshake.

The fakeaway meal was creative to say the least and while his cooking skills were certainly tested, it appears his artistic side was too.
Upon recreating the cheeseburger meal, the McDonald's fan posted a couple of snaps the the Rate My Plate Facebook group, and it certainly was enough to make us drool at the thought of eating it again.
The home-made burger was wrapped in what appears to be kitchen towel with the words, "cheeseburger" scribbled across the packaging, and the fries were even presented in a small pouch, too, with the iconic red and yellow branding plastered on the front.
But while most meals come with a Coke or Sprite as a drink, the Facebook foodie opted for a strawberry shake which was strategically wrapped in a makeshift paper cup donning the the brand's big yellow arches.
To say people were impressed is an understatement with many group members utterly obsessed with the idea.
While many people used the words "amazing" and "brilliant" to describe the almost nostalgic feeling the food creation gave them, it seems those most impressed by the idea were desperate parents whose kids have gone without.
One thrilled dad said: "I'm impressed mate, good way to keep the kids entertained at dinner time."
While another mum suggested doing it for her child's birthday to do something special while in lockdown.
While the feedback was definitely mixed, many people were impressed but the bloke's efforts.
Certainly impressed by what he saw, one person wrote: " Oh s**t mate, that is bloody awesome! That rates so much more than ‘the real deal’. Freaking awesome."
And another said: "Can't deny your creativity here."
