The Five Different Ways You Can Get Eggs at McDonald's

If you've always gotten an Egg McMuffin with a fresh-cracked round egg, you might be surprised to know that you could have also gotten it with scrambled eggs or egg whites. In fact, there are actually five different preparations of eggs at McDonald's and here's what you get with each:

- Round Egg - The default of the McMuffin, the round egg is just a egg cracked into an egg ring and cooked over the grill.

- Scrambled Egg - Available in McDonald's breakfast platters, liquid eggs (Eggs, Citric Acid) are cooked on the grill.

- Folded Egg - This is standard on McDonald's biscuit sandwiches and come to each restaurant pre-cooked and frozen. They're heated up when they're needed and contain a combination of the following: Eggs, Nonfat Milk, Modified Food Starch, Salt, Citric Acid, and Soy Lecithin.

- Egg Whites - The key feature of McDonald's Egg White Delight McMuffin, these are egg whites cooked on the grill.

- Sausage Burrito Eggs - The name's a bit self-explanatory: these are the eggs that come in the Sausage Burrito. Like the folded eggs, they're pre-cooked and frozen. The ingredients are a bit different as the scramble also includes sausage and vegetables. Here's the full list: Whole Eggs, Pork, Tomatoes, Skim Milk, Soybean Oil, Green Chilies, Onions, Modified Corn Starch, Spices, Salt, Water, Dextrose, Natural Flavors, Xanthan Gum, Citric Acid, Sugar, Rosemary Extract, Calcium Chloride, and Citric Acid.

While it's easy enough to get a a round egg or egg whites on your Bacon, Egg & Cheese Biscuit with the availability of the All Day Breakfast menu, you might be able to finagle some sausage burrito mixture onto your hamburger at some McDonald's restaurants...
