The announcement, which came via a tweet from Burger King France, offered a solution for the country’s fast food lovers, amid a two-week shutdown that forced all of the chain’s French locations to temporarily close.
The recipe for “Le Whopper de la Quarantine” features just eight ingredients — buns, onions, pickles, ketchup, beef patties, mayonnaise, lettuce and tomatoes — is basically a guide to recreating the chain’s most famous menu item.
Burger King France even shared a step-by-step video, which shows how to make the mock-Whopper from home.
Additionally, the company shared recipes for “quarantine” versions of other popular items, such as its fish sandwich and its steakhouse burger.
The move provoked a massive response online, with hundreds of customers responding to share their thoughts — and of course, their home-cooked sandwiches.
“Our house Whopper while waiting for your reopening,” another captioned their burger.
Others were less enthusiastic, commenting instead that a homemade Whopper might actually be better than the original.
“Don’t advertise like that. People will realize that homemade burger is 100 times better,” one user joked.
