2 for $3 Egg McMuffins - BOW WOW WOW
Cholesterol here I come!
No thanks, I prefer my eggs to be fresh. I'll stick with the bacon, egg and cheese on a roll from the deli.
Yuck.... times 2 no less.
Although I do enjoy a number 2 I think it is, it can never beat a sausage egg and cheese on a roll from the deli in the neighborhood. And a side of homefries never hurt anyone.
I prefer the biscuits. The mcmuffins are kinda gross.
Darnit McD's making me want unhealthy food!
You get what you pay for.
I had these once on a college trip to see some lecture. Weren't too bad actually. Shame they'll cost double that here.
I haven't ate McDonalds in the longest time, and don't plan on it either.
I'd take Mcdonalds (Or Chinese food) over anything in the world. Offer me a free, juicy steak.. or a $5 Mcdonalds meal, i'll take the Mcdonalds every single time. I love that stuff!
Nationwide haven't seen anything round here
Good deal for anyone wanting to plump out for summer.
Eh? They are fresh - just like you gets 'em for da store.
Unless you mean, "fresh" as in right out of the nest.
The eggs are a yellow liquid that comes from a carton and is microwaved in a tupperware. Not quite the same.
That said, I do get a perverse pleasure in eating McBaconEggandCheeseBagles
I don't think you can make yellow liquid look like a fried egg...
No they're not. Its a real egg, cracked into a metal ring, and fried. One of my professors owned a McDonald's, I've learned quite a bit about their food in her classes (but I always thought this bit was fairly common knowledge).
I used to work at mcdonalds. The scrambled eggs are made with a pre-made mix and then microwaved, like the previous poster claimed. But the round eggs that are used in the mcmuffins are real. As in, they crack them open and cook them.
I guess with the economic situation and whatnot, they need to get rid of last year's stock of Egg McMuffins. Lower prices, huzzah!
Close. The scrambled eggs come in the form you describe. The eggs for the McMuffin are fresh.
Incidentally, since they're receiving fresh eggs roughly as fast as they can use them, they're probably fresher than most eggs in most peoples' refrigerators at home.
This "pre-made" mix is actually 100% pure whole eggs - cracked and blended for easy cooking. Nothing fake. (And they are not microwaved any more).
However, McD still uses whole eggs for its McMuffin sandwiches so they can't be acused for false advertising in their commericals and merchindising photos you see in the restaurants. Plus they want that yolk to appear in the middle.
As far as the unhealthy food myth goes... while you probably shouldn't eat it every freaking day (like a lot of people do), it's all made from the same ingredients you buy at any grocer for your home.
Yes - I have a Mickey-D's background in a former life.
Yeah? But it tastes SO MUCH better than regular eggs and is probably healthier than Captain Crunch itself.
Actually -- as a current McDonald's Canada employee, I can tell you this:
Fresh, whole, Grade A eggs are used in the McMuffin sandwich line, liquid eggs from a carton are used for the scrambled eggs (part of the Big Breakfast... something I believe the American menu does not include?) and the folded egg that comes on the Bacon and Egg Bagel and McGriddle sandwiches is thawed from frozen and heated up on the clamshell grill before placement in the sandwich.
This powder stuff you speak of does not sound attractive at all. I guess that makes just one difference between the American and Canadian McDonald's menu.
I believe the way it works out is, if you remove the slice of cheese and ask for no margarine on the English muffin, the 12g of fat is reduced to 5. The Egg McMuffin is the healthiest breakfast sandwich item, nonetheless.
No offense, but who gives a **** how it's made or what it's made from if it tastes good?
No. No. No. The U.S. uses the same stuff. There isn't a McD in the world that uses "powdered eggs".
The only difference between Canada and the U.S. is our chickens dutifully commit suicide when they can't lay eggs any more. (At which time they become McNuggets).
I wouldn't even feed that to my dog.
Yes, keep thinking that. I'll be a doctor in a few years and you are great job security! Enjoy your heart attack at age 40.
