What’s the Secret to McDonald’s Perfect Eggs?

Seriously, those eggs are things of beauty

The Egg McMuffin just might be the perfect breakfast sandwich.

If you’ve ever had an Egg McMuffin or any other McDonald’s breakfast item that involves eggs, you’ve most likely taken a second to realize just how perfect those little eggs are. So what’s the deal?

It’s actually not too difficult to learn how McDonald’s cooks their eggs, so we’ll explain how it’s done, according to this former McDonald’s employee. First, you start with a fresh large egg and a ring mold that’s about the same diameter as an English muffin. Then, you heat a nonstick pan to medium, put the ring mold in the middle of it, brush some vegetable oil inside the ring, and crack the egg into it. Break the yolk and give it a little stir. Now here comes the secret: Add a few tablespoons of water to the outside of the ring, and cover the pan as quickly as possible. This allows the egg to steam from the top down while also cooking from the bottom up. Leave it alone for two or so minutes, and your egg should be cooked through and essentially identical to McDonald’s.

If you want to make an Egg McMuffin of your very own, don’t forget the order of assembly: bottom of toasted English muffin, one slice of American cheese, the egg, one round of Canadian bacon, top of toasted English muffin. And if you’re making them at home, you can also hit one crucial step that McDonald’s skips: adding a little salt and pepper.


McDonald's has released its sausage and egg McMuffin recipe so people can recreate it at home

McDonald's has released a recipe card giving step-by-step instructions on how to create your own sausage and egg McMuffin at home.

The fast-food chain's breakfast sandwich is one of its best-selling items on the menu, especially since the company tweaked the recipe by switching from margarine to butter.

While fans have been unable to indulge in their breakfast guilty pleasure with many McDonald's restaurants currently closed or offering takeaway only, they can now whip up their own version at home to satisfy the cravings.

People have recently begun sharing the results of their own sausage and egg McMuffins attempts on Twitter.

One user tweeted: "Received my @ReelRapid prompt but first. Breakfast. Yes, I made my own McMuffin because I miss McDonald's that much."

McDonald's has responded to the call and brought together all five ingredients and the cooking method in an easy-to-follow recipe card so it can be enjoyed in the comfort of your own home.

Ingredients

- Toast the English muffin until golden brown.

- Season with a pinch of salt and pepper then shape into balls. Flatten into patty shapes and cook under a pre-heated grill for six to seven minutes on each side (or as per instructions on packaging).

- Brush the inside of a metal ring with a little oil and place in a small frying pan. Pour in just enough water to cover the base then bring to the boil. Crack the eggs into the rings, cover the pan and cook for two-three minutes.

- Assemble your McMuffin by layering the patty and egg on top of a slice of cheese.

- To make a hash brown, grate the potato into a bowl. Mix in an egg, then season with salt and pepper. Heat a glug of oil in a pan then add spoonfuls of the mix. Flatten and cook until golden brown on both sides.
