An MCDONALD’S worker has claimed to reveal how the fast food giant makes its famous nuggets, Filet-O-Fish, and fries.
TikTok user @essentialmcdonalds share the clip to the site to show the viewers how he said the popular string to be prepared some of its most iconic menu items.
In a behind-the-scenes clip – viewed more than 10 million times – he shows the chicken being cooked.
First, he checks the oil before handing out a clear bag filled with nuggets.
@essentialmcdonalds tells viewers: “They freeze in a bag. You dump them in a basket. And then you shake them so they go into their own slot.
“You put them down in your fryer and they’re off in three and a half minutes.
“When it’s time to pull them up, you press the scissors and then shake them out a bit, making sure you loosen them off the wall of the basket.”
After removing the excess oil, he adds, “And then you just dump them right into your basket. And that’s it.”
As for Filet-O-Fish @essentialmcdonalds said fast food chains use steamers.
“The filet mignon is the only thing in the store that actually uses a steamer, which is why the vermicelli is so tender,” he said.
“It’s steamed for 11 seconds. You take it out, you put it in your box. One pump of tartar sauce and then it’s half a piece of cheese.”
As for the fries, the TikTok user, who has a million followers, added: “Put them in your oil and you start the timer.
“You get a timer that works 30 seconds after they start cooking and you just press on that and shake the fries so they don’t stick together and you put them back in the oil.
“And then when they’re done, you press the clock to stop them.
“You pull out your fries and you just shake off the excess oil.
“And then you just pour them into your frying station, you salt them and shake them around a bit and make sure the salt sticks to the fries. And you’re done.”
While Egg McMuffin uses “round eggs”, while Bacon Egg and Cheese Muffin use “folded eggs”.
“The scrambled eggs,” he began, “are pre-cooked.”
McDonald’s Round eggs are “cooked fresh every day, aka fresh cracked eggs.”
