How are McDonald's Eggs Prepared?

March 04, 2021

Good question. Our breakfast menu items are all made with real eggs—they’re just prepared a little differently for each sandwich.

Round Egg:

We use a USDA Grade A cracked into an ‘egg ring’ to get that iconic round shape for our Egg McMuffin®.

Scrambled Eggs:

Our scrambled eggs are made with liquid eggs that are cooked fresh on our grill with real butter.

Folded Eggs:

Our folded eggs, like the ones on a Bacon, Egg & Cheese Biscuit, are made with liquid eggs that are pre-cooked and folded before being flash frozen by our suppliers. Once in our kitchens, they’re prepared on the grill with real butter.

Sausage Burrito Eggs:

Our suppliers pre-cook liquid eggs with ingredients that include sausage, tomatoes, green chilies, onions and seasonings before flash freezing them to help maintain their taste.
