McDonald’s customers in Northwest Ohio and Southeast Michigan -- including the two Norwalk locations -- can now enjoy the wholesome new Egg White Delight McMuffin.

Egg White Delight McMuffin is prepared with freshly grilled 100 percent 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 Tim Sloan, local Toledo McDonald’s owner/operator. “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 include: 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.  Freshly grilled egg whites are also available for substitution on McDonald’s breakfast platters.

Next they'll be coming out with gluten free menu choices.

It would be great if they did. It would make grabbing a quick meal a lot easier for a lot of families.

... so are you poking fun at mcdonalds for the menu choices or are you taking a shot at people with food allergies?

yeah it may be fast food still, but at least they're trying to seem healthy... but then again, if you don't want to eat crap food, don't eat out.

Why do you call it crap food??.. Seriously.. an egg is an egg, a slice of bacon is a slice of bacon, and a muffin is a muffin..Whether made for you, or by you in your home??? Same thing? I think McD's always getting a bad wrap by people who would be overweight, with of without fast food joints to blame it on.

Don't get me wrong here, mcdonald's food is darn tastie, but you'd be hard pressed to find anyone that would say that it qualifies as a hearty meal.

I love McDonalds, its my death row meal of choice, but I'm not going to sit here and try to fool myself into believing that its not crap food when compared to anything I could make for myself at home.

Truckin, you think that their eggs, bacon and muffins are the same as the ones you purchase at the supermarket? Dare I assume that you're not the healthiest person in Norwalk?

truckin

Actually if you knew me as others do on here. You would probably know that..yes i am among some of thee healthiest, fittest in town. AND YES. They crack a real chicken egg and a slice of bacon and yes the same muffin made at the local bakery, is the same muffin you buy at local stores under various names.. Seriously.. Even the whites are from the same manufacture as a carton of egg white at supermarket on smaller scale. Not saying all there food is healthy, but chicken is chicken just has a much greater content of sodium as store bought and some other items will make you pass some serious gas. But YES an egg muffin is a EGG MUFFIN

They would be smart to offer some balsamic man glaze with those breakfast items.
