A TikToker claiming to be a McDonald's employee shared how the chain's eggs are made.
In the video, they showed how folded and round eggs differ.
According to the post, folded eggs arrive at locations pre-cooked and round eggs are made on-site.
McDonald's breakfast has been a customer favorite for many years. One TikTok user (@essentialmcdonalds), who claims to be a McDonald's employee, gave followers a peek into the egg-making process.
On Saturday, they shared a video explaining the difference between how the folded-style eggs and the round-style eggs at their McDonald's location are made. At the time of writing, the video had 15.3 million views.
"So today I'm going to show you the difference between our folded egg and our round egg," the TikToker said.
They first showed footage of a clear package filled with 12 pre-cooked, folded eggs.
"They're not this yellow in real life," they said, adding that the discoloration likely had something to do with the camera and lighting.
The TikToker said they pour the egg pouches directly onto a grill from the packet, arrange them neatly in rows, add a little water, and close the top of the machine to cook the small omelets. They get scooped into a tray where they're stored until an order comes in.
Moving to their footage of the round egg process, the TikTok user shows a crate of fresh, still-in-the-shell eggs and explains that those are made on-site in their location.
"They're cooked fresh every day, AKA cracked fresh," the TikToker says in the video.
After buttering the grill surface and cracking the eggs directly into ring molds, it's time to break the yolks, they said. Then they close the lid, pour water over the top to help steam the eggs, and use the same tool to scoop the rounds into another tray.
Some commenters, who claim to be both current and former McDonald's employees, have said that at their locations, they had to cook and fold the omelet-style eggs by hand as well as the round option. In the comments of another video @essentialmcdonalds posted, they note that cooking processes may vary across locations.
The TikToker and representatives for McDonald's didn't immediately respond to Insider's request for comment.
