Dunkin' Donuts wants to build a better egg to win the fast-food breakfast battles

How Dunkin' Makes Donuts

Dunkin' Donuts wants to create a tastier egg.

On Thursday, the coffee-and-doughnut chain said it would soon launch a test of a better-tasting egg, reports The Street.

Currently, Dunkin' Donut's eggs are a somewhat complicated creation, containing real egg, but reformulated to create disks that can be easily heated and served on a breakfast sandwich. The company's fried egg contains 12 ingredients. The egg white patty contains more than 20 (including cheese and vegetables mixed into the disk).
