It looks like the opportunity to get the Holy Grail of fast food, a bacon and egg McMuffin at two in the morning, is soon to be upon us.

According to the Wall Street Journal, who obtained a memo sent from McDonald's to its franchises and staff, it seems like an all-day breakfast menu could come into operation in the U.S. as early as October this year. 

While all day breakfasts have been tested in parts of America since the beginning of this year, and will soon be available throughout Australia, the vast majority of the chain's restaurants shut down the breakfast menu at 10.30 p.m. on weekdays, and 11.00 p.m. on the weekends.

The memo supposedly states that owners should be prepared for the new menu to be put into effect on a national scale later this year. There will be a vote by franchisee leaders on August 14th that will determine if the plan is to go ahead, which all seems like a lot of effort when all we're looking for is a few eggs thrown in between some muffins.

There's been no news on whether the new system will cross over to Ireland or the UK yet, but seeing as they're pushing for it in the States, and it's impending berth in Australia, we're just going to assume(hope) that we'll all be stuffing pancakes in our mouths at midnight by sometime next year.
