R.I.P. Egg McMuffin Inventor

March 27, 2008 / Posted by:

Herb Peterson, the inventor of McDonald’s Egg McMuffin, passed away Tuesday at the age of 89. Herb invented the Egg McMuffin in 1972, because he loved eggs benedict. The breakfast sandwich made its debut at Herb’s McDonald’s franchise in Santa Barbara. At the time of his death, he owned 6 McDonald’s restaurants in the Santa Barbara area.

McDonald’s said he died peacefully at home. Uh…huh…heart disease from eating too many of his own creation. I’m joking.

This is a sad day, but the minute I hear the inventor of the McRib passed away, I will lose it. Seriously though, I used to love the Egg McMuffin as a child, but as I got older I started to realize that maybe this wasn’t egg I was eating. Some paranoid bitch I know thinks all McDonald’s products are made from worms with food flavor. Worm McMuffin! Yum.

Rest in peace Herb Peterson! I’ll eat an Egg McMuffin this morning and think of you! Actually, I prefer the McGriddle, but don’t tell Herb. On that note, I really need to see a nutritionist.


Thanks Dawn
