    Please explain to me more about your 'ease and convenience' when you are lying in your hospital bed due to blocked arteries or stomach cancer. I don't understand Americans. Y'all know and say 'McDonalds is sooo badddd' while stuffing your mouth with that trash. What was really so special about McMuffin? Its freaking egg, meat, and cheese slice on bread. Just do it at home and stay healthy!

    This is rather like a parody on cooking... it doesn't take 4 hours to prepare English muffins, maybe you should get more skills first and then shoot videos on cooking

    Did it take your 10 minutes or less to cook the egg, canadian bacon and assemble? If so, then that's another way you can look at it. You could make the buns before hand, freeze them / store them, and make as many as you want when you want them.
    Make 16 English Muffins on a slow Sunday. Keep them in the refrigerator all week and use them for the week to make your egg McMuffins.
    Plus, you have to factor in the cost of the employee's wages of the time it takes to make and serve you the McMuffins @ McDonald's. You factored in your time, but you ignore their time. Not a fair comparison.
    Time to Time Comparison is needed.
    Lets say it takes 10 people $200/hr to make 10,000 English Muffins Total. That is $0.50 / English Muffin
    So $0.50 x 16 English Muffins is $8/hr cost per English Muffin to produce your home-made muffins if you get paid $20/hr. to bake them for McDonald's at the factory.
    So to make your Homemade English Muffins (from what I can gather from the video). 15 Minutes to Mix Ingredients + 1 Hour of Rising + 15 minutes of Making the Circles + 15 Minutes of Rising Circles then 15 Minutes to Cook.
    So that's 2 Hours from start to finish for the English Muffins. That is a cost of $40 per 16 English Muffins for a Fresh Home-Made Product.
    Bacon and Eggs total cook time would be around 2 Minutes for Bacon + Eggs around 3 Minutes so 5 Minutes of total time (even though it's really only 3 cause you cook them at the same time).
    so at $20/hr. it cost you $1.67 to make the insides. So lets say you can only do 4 at a time that is x4 so $6.68 for the whole batch worth of bacon and eggs.
    Assembly of 1 minute of $0.34 @ $20/hr. (i'm just going to assume it takes you 2 minutes to assemble 16 Egg McMuffins) so this $0.68 to make all of them.
    So total cost of 16 would be: $47.36 to make 16 Home-Made Egg McMuffins.
    You had 4, so yours cost you $11.84 for the 4.
    How much did the ones from McDonald's cost you? One would have to assume they are in it for the profit, so it costs more to buy from the restaurant than it did to make, probably by at least 30%.
    So do a rough guesstimate of -30% for the cost of buying the McDonald's versions.
    That is the math that we want to know.
    I am going to add this in. I went to A&W this morning to get two Bacon and Eggers and it cost me $6.86 CAD for two. So that's $13.72. So -30% would be $10.55 as the Cost of Two of them (Probably a lot less due to volume but). That means if I got 4 of them, it would cost them $21.10 to make the 4 Bacon and Eggers at A&W. And it takes me 5 minutes to get them.
    That is $3.52 / Minute for each Bacon and Egger. (Takes 5 minutes)
    McDonald's would be $1.97 / Minute for each Egg McMuffin. (Takes 10 Minutes)
    Please Reply, even though this was from December 2018 :(

    I was told McDonalds is known as the 100% pure Diabetes Restaurant. But I think that's only if you eat McDonalds everyday for Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner, there is a risk that you can get diabetes very easily. But if you only eat like almost for times like once or twice a month, you won't get sick. Just stay healthy if you wanna feel good about your life.

    I don’t think you really have to go as far as making home made muffins. Obviously for the purpose of the video it was interesting, but if you’re at home, just buy some! It will cut hours off of this process! I make my own fancy breakfast muffins that everyone says are better than McDonalds’ (I wouldn’t know, I’ve never had an Egg McMuffin!😲) & they sure smell better! I whisk some eggs, season & add a little cream (& sometimes a little garlic because I put garlic in everything!). Then I get a slice tin/tray & scatter some diced onion, baby spinach & torn up slices of honey baked ham (paper thin sliced/shaved) all over the bottom of the slice tin. Pour egg mixture over & sprinkle cheese on top (I like a mix of cheddar & Parmesan). Bake in the oven until set & golden. Cut into small squares to fit an English muffin, place on toasted (& preferably buttered) muffin & add a slice of cheese. Ta-da! It’s amazing!😋

    homemade ones hands down
    1. the price of the ingredients when you math it out is actually cheaper than the whole sandwich from MacD itself.
    2. even though YES it takes 4+ hours to make the sandwiches completely... BUT you can go and do anything else during the period of time the dough was rising... Dishes? Cleaning? A nap? etc. MacD takes time to get there, time to order, time waiting to get your meal paid for, time to get it, waiting in traffic again, getting home... eating it... Even if you are 10 minutes away from a MacD from home with traffic, that's 20 minutes of traffic + another 10 minutes waiting in the Drive Through to order, 2 minutes paying, another 5 minutes waiting to get it, 15 minutes waiting to get back INTO traffic because we all know people are asshats... So that is what? 20 + 10 + 2 + 5 + 15... let's call it an hour. a full hour that you could have been doing something else other than sitting in your car. Sure you could eat your meal during that 15 minutes from getting your food and getting into traffic, but who wants to drive with greasy fingers?
    3. Customization is so doable here. You could make wheat muffins, pumpernickel, glutten free, etc. MacD you get one kind of muffin.... The basic one. You can swap out bacon for the ham or sausage for the ham, you could ADD additional meats with the ham (my go to).
    That is my two cents at least.

    I was honestly disappointed in this video. I normally still enjoy the chick in the orange's personality, but in this video she just seemed too stoned to function and didnt really add anything to the video. Also I think that the convenience factor was kind of stupid. It would take so much less time to just buy muffins from the store and toast up an egg and bacon and put them on it before headed to work than sitting in a line at a McDonald's waiting for your food that costs like a dollar more per serving.
