IF you’ve ever had an Egg McMuffin or a Bacon Egg and Cheese Muffin from McDonalds, you know how satisfying their breakfasts can be.
But there’s one key difference between these two menu items: the kinds of eggs they use.
While the Egg McMuffin uses “round eggs,” and Bacon Egg and Cheese Muffin uses “folded eggs.”
Posting to the TikTok account @EssentialMcDonalds, a man revealed how both types of eggs are prepared, and people are horrified with the folded method.
“Folded eggs,” he began, “come pre-cooked.”
He showed a sealed package of a dozen, bright yellow cooked eggs.
“All we do is throw them on the grill, arrange them neatly, put a little water in there, and then cook them again.”
After letting them heat up for a few minutes, he then scooped them into a tray and said they were done.

Próximo, he moved on to the round eggs.
Thankfully this method uses fresh, uncooked eggs like the ones you’d buy at the grocery store.
“They’re cooked fresh every day, aka cracked fresh.”
He cracked each egg into its own small ring mold on the grill and then used a tool to pop each yolk.
After closing the grill, he poured water on top for some extra steaming.
Once they were cooked, he scooped them out with the tray.
Most viewers were pretty disgusted by the first recipe:
“Well now I’ll only be ordering round eggs. Those first ones skeeved me out,” one wrote.
“Ok so basically don’t get anything with the folded egg,” added a second.
A few, porém, said they’d still opt for the pre-packaged style:
“Folded egg wins every single time. I don’t care that it’s premade. So is 95% of all food products in fast food restaurants,” one argued.
“Still prefer the square ones. Too many times I’ve eaten eggshells,” said another.
