A McDonald's employee has revealed how the fast food chain makes two types of eggs for its breakfast sandwiches in a now viral TikTok video.
This weekend, TikTok user @essentialmcdonalds posted a video on the social media platform showing the difference between McDonald's folded eggs and its round eggs.
In the clip, the TikTok user explains that folded eggs come pre-cooked in squares. The user then explains how McDonald's employees prepare the folded eggs for serving.

"All we do is we just throw them on the grill and arrange them nicely, put some water in and then boil them," says @essentialmcdonalds. "They come up, we just scoop them into a tray, and that's it for the folded egg."
When the video shifts to show how the round eggs are made, the clip shows a tray of uncooked eggs next to the grill.
TikTok user @essentialmcdonalds says, "These are the round eggs. So they are cooked fresh every day."

The clip shows the TikTok user cracking an egg directly on a round shape on the grill.
When all the rings are filled with eggs, the TikTok user breaks all the plums.
"We pop all the plums, pour a little water on top so it steams the plums and the egg," says the TikTok user in the clip. "We pull them out of the ring shapes and scoop them up with the same egg tool."

"Something is at least fresh," one person said.
Another commenter wrote: "I always go for round eggs."
Another said, "The folded eggs have the strangest texture to me."
Other commentators, however, said they still choose to get folded eggs.
"Still prefer the square ones," someone wrote. "Too many times I have eaten eggshells."
Another person said, "Folded egg wins every time. I don't care if it's ready made. The same is 95% of all food products in fast food restaurants. Your burgers come ready made."
