Egg Log

You have got to love the efficiency of Japan. Practicality above all else, even if that means you have to cut your egg slices out of a horrendous molded egg tube.

  2. Delicious protein. Now all they need to do is add in the salt and pepper. Or how about a PICKLED egg-log?

  3. They have those here too, or at least the used to. Fast food restaurants used them.

  4. What is so surprising, isn't this what they have been using in the airline industry for years.

  5. Have you ever had an egg McMuffin? McDonald's uses the same thing.

    1. No, they don't. McDonald's is one of the few fast food places to use almost real eggs.

  10. haha havn't seen them in a while. My elementary school canteen bought them once, but our parents wern't impressed.

    Admittedly it was a rather poor choice for a school in an italian village where there were more hens than kids O_o'

  11. Contrary to what a previous poster says, McDonald's don't use those.
    Well, they don't in the UK, at least.

    1. They don't use them in the U.S., either. They use a metal ring on the grill to make the round shape, and they crack a real, raw egg in the middle.

  17. My question: HOW did they do it?

    ReplyDelete
  18. It certainly does look like something I'd expect to find in a fast food restaurant that does egg muffins on the menu. Certainly saves on cracking eggs perhaps. And yes, they used these in Clerks II.

  20. I wanna see the chicken that made that possible

  21. Actually, Egg McMuffin's are made out of real eggs. I worked at Mc Donald's before. They crack an egg into a metal ring on the grill. It's actually the only thing on the breakfast menu that contains an actual egg. :P

  22. I don't understand why everyone thinks this is gross.. give me a few packs of English muffins, some cheap sliced American cheese, and some cold cut ham and I'll be happy for weeks!! Where can I buy this?? I'm going to start checking my local Asian markets.. maybe they can order it for me.. I'm kinda lazy so it would cut down on cooking/cleaning time.

    i think its a good idea

  24. You all do realize that this is made of real eggs? There's a youtube video that covers how it's done http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u1-R8mizqRc

  25. This has been used for ages in the food industry to reduce the risk of salmonella and such due to using raw eggs. Most sandwiches and salads you come across in a supermarket will be made with this, and many delis use them too to comply with health and safety regulations (at least in Spain and the UK).

  26. This type of product was used in the airline catering industry for decades under the trade name "What-an-Egg". Special wire slicers were used to make uniform cuts. The commercial versions were 2' in length. The product has been replaced with 5gal pails of hard boiled eggs which have a higher quality,but loweryield.

  27. They are a lot safer than using fresh eggs all the preservitive aside fresh eggs can spoil if not handled properly and cause food poisoning.
