Eggs make the perfect breakfast – whether you like them boiled, scrambled, fried or poached. So, what makes them so ideal for the first meal of the morning?
For starters, eggs keep you feeling full, for much longer, than other breakfast options like cereal or toast. Then, the protein and fat in the eggs helps to maintain your energy levels, keeping you satiated for a longer time and reducing cravings for a mid-morning snack.
Then, whole eggs are among the best sources of protein, containing all essential amino acids. They also help in the development of your brain, enhancing your memory and improving your eyesight.
When McDonald’s (West & South) introduced its breakfast menu in Mumbai in 2010, the international menu included eggs, of course.
However, the eggs used in McDonald’s meals are no plain eggs. They are good quality eggs from healthy birds. The eggs are washed, cleaned, sterilized and coated. The last step ensures that they do not break during transportation and have a greater shelf life.
The Egg McMuffin was created back in 1972. It began as a breakfast sandwich, using a hot egg, cheese, bacon and English muffins. The egg was laid out in a Teflon circle, with the yolk broken and dressed with slices of cheese and grilled bacon, and served open-faced on a toasted and buttered English muffin.
The Egg McMuffin continues to be a popular as well as healthier option around the world. In India, the sandwich has a steamed egg – tender and moist – served with a slice of cheese in a muffin, uniquely baked to have a crisp exterior and a soft and tender interior.
The McEgg on the other hand, is a unique combination of perfectly steamed egg, classic mayonnaise and chopped onion, with a sprinkling of magic masala, packed in a toasted bun. It’s guaranteed to please every egg lover.
