You’re overcooking my eggs.

August 23, 2010

Iowa  is in the middle of a huge egg recall due to salmonella and McDonald’s is being extra super careful by overcooking the eggs for McMuffins.  I get that they don’t want to be part of an epidemic but could someone please let me know when they return to the regularly scheduled cooking times?  Rubber eggs are simply nasty.

On a related note:

Best comment to an Ann Althouse thread about eggs & salmonella:

“These large factory egg farms pollute our systems in more ways than this which is why I am off to the farmer’s market to buy local.”

Don’t forget to stop by the local organic metalworker’s shop and get your halo polished during your walk to the marketplace in the shire.

You are walking down to the market, aren’t you?

A lot of cuisine depends upon lightly-cooked or uncooked eggs. Homemade mayonnaise, hollandaise sauce, buttercream frostings, properly cooked French omelets… overcooked eggs are disgusting.

Salmonella is very rare. This egg scare represents less than 1% of the US egg production. The US produces about 7 billion eggs per month.
