McDonald’s said it was “prepared separately from other McDonald’s burgers and sandwiches using specialized cooking utensils.” A meal costs £6.49.
The Double McPlant is served with toppings similar to other burger options on McDonald’s menu, but with some vegan modifications. The company said it would include mustard, ketchup, onions, pickles, lettuce and tomatoes, plus vegan sesame seeds, vegan cheese “tastes like McDonald’s iconic cheese slices” and “the ultimate vegan sandwich sauce.” .
That rollout comes about a year after the fast-food chain made the McPlant Burger, which features a single Beyond Meat patty, widely available in the UK and Ireland. I was testing that item there last year.

Other markets have also tested McPlant in the past, as previously reported by FOX Business.
McDonald’s isn’t the only fast-food chain that Beyond Meat has partnered with on menu items. For example, we worked with Panda Express to create Beyond The Original Orange Chicken. We also created the Beyond Carne Asada steak for Taco Bell.
