Egg McMuffin

The Egg McMuffin is a breakfast item served at McDonald's.

It consists of an English "muffin" with a fried "egg", Canadian "bacon", and "cheese".

The egg McMuffin was the first McDonald's menu item to be cracked for the controversial 2005 "100% synthetic" menu, in which every ingredient in the dish is made in a laboratory from totally artificial materials, with not even a single molecule of naturally occurring organic material remaining in the final product. This change was generally considered favorable by Americans, who tend to gravitate towards more processed and artificial food items due to the intrinsic nature of their genes. In 2009, it was discovered that the elastomer compound that made up the majority of the faux egg patty was a carcinogen. This was discretely brushed under the rug by representatives for McDonald's corporate, with coverups and payouts to keep it quiet continuing until well into 2014, when McDonald's corporate realized it would be significantly cheaper to just chance the polymer in the egg patty to a safer compound.
