McDonald’s Expands Wholesome Breakfast Choices With New Egg White Delight McMuffin

Customers can also flip their breakfast favorites by choosing freshly grilled 100% egg whites and white cheddar on any egg and cheese breakfast sandwich


SAN DIEGO – April 29, 2013 – Today, customers in San Diego County can now enjoy the wholesome new Egg White Delight McMuffin at McDonald’s. Egg White Delight McMuffin is prepared with freshly grilled 100% egg whites, extra lean Canadian bacon and white cheddar* served on a new muffin. Freshly grilled egg whites and white cheddar are also available on any existing egg and cheese breakfast sandwiches and platters, providing customers a new way to enjoy their breakfast favorites.

The introduction of Egg White Delight McMuffin supports McDonald’s “Commitments to Offer Improved Nutrition Choices,” announced in 2011. The new muffin delivers 8 grams of whole grain and the Canadian bacon delivers quality protein, helping customers incorporate foods from some of the USDA’s MyPlate recommended food groups. At 250 calories, the Egg White Delight McMuffin is McDonald’s newest wholesome breakfast choice under 300 calories in addition to Egg McMuffin, Fruit & Maple Oatmeal and Fruit N’ Yogurt Parfait.

“Since introducing the Egg McMuffin more than 40 years ago, customers have come to know and love McDonald’s breakfast sandwiches for their great taste,” said Phil Palumbo, president of the San Diego County McDonald’s Owner/Operator Association. “It was important to us to deliver that same great taste with the new Egg White Delight McMuffin and egg white breakfast sandwiches. That’s why our egg whites are freshly grilled in our restaurants and paired with white cheddar for the perfect flavor combination.”

McDonald’s breakfast sandwiches available with egg whites includes, Egg McMuffin, Sausage McMuffin with Egg; Bacon, Egg & Cheese Biscuit; Sausage Biscuit with Egg; Bacon, Egg & Cheese McGriddles; Sausage, Egg & Cheese McGriddles; and Bacon, Egg & Cheese Bagel.
