12 Apr Copycat McDonald’s Scrambled Eggs – Keto, Low Carb Scrambled Eggs
Last Updated on August 22, 2021
These copycat McDonald’s scrambled eggs are a quick, keto-friendly alternative to fast food breakfast. Use them to make healthy, low carb versions of your favorite fast food restaurant breakfasts at home.
It’s a little strange for me to be posting a McDonald’s copycat recipe. I don’t generally eat McDonald’s or give it to my kids. (I wouldn’t feed it to any living thing for that matter now that I know better.) When I was younger, though, I really loved their McGriddles.
Maybe it can be argued that McDonald’s eggs are gluten-free and (now) cooked in real butter, but gluten-free doesn’t necessarily equal healthy, and I don’t really trust anything from fast food restaurants.
McDonald’s website states, “Our folded eggs, like the ones on a Bacon, Egg & Cheese Biscuit, are made with liquid eggs that are pre-cooked and folded before being flash frozen by our suppliers. Once in our kitchens, they’re prepared on the grill with real butter.” YUM! Side note – Did you know IHOP adds pancake batter to their omelettes?
I’ve received great feedback on my chaffle recipes, especially my reuben chaffle and Big Mac chaffle. I thought a McGriddle chaffle would be spectacular, and yes – it is! (And no waxy aftertaste/texture like the original.)
I wanted to get the egg just right, so here’s the recipe for those who may just want it alone. Full Sausage, Egg and Cheese McGriddle Chaffle recipe coming soon!
