Review: Burger King - BK Ultimate Breakfast Platter

BK Ultimate Breakfast Platter
The new BK Ultimate Breakfast Platter from Burger King is analogous to McDonald's Deluxe Breakfast but with a little more hyperbole. The BK Ultimate Breakfast Platter comes complete with scrambled eggs, hash browns, a sausage patty, a biscuit, and three pancakes with syrup for $4.29.

Of BK's new breakfast expansion items, the Ultimate Breakfast Platter is the one I found most tolerable. It is also by far the most calorie and salt laden of the new items on account of throwing in all the typical breakfast items.

The scramble eggs are probably the same used in the BK Breakfast Bowl which means they're fluffy enough but are in small pieces which can make for messy eating, especially if you're herding them into a biscuit to make a sandwich.

The hash browns come separately from the rest of the platter in a little bag and come in easy-to-share disc shapes.

The sausage patty was decent with a fair bit of spiciness, but I prefer McDonald's sausage for their peppery flavor. The Sister did not care for the pancakes and felt they were a bit too sweet, but I liked that there were just amount of sweet to eat without syrup which is good for when you're eating on the go. Otherwise, they're mostly like microwaved frozen pancakes.

I don't care for Burger King's biscuits, they look fine but they don't deliver in terms of flakiness and buttery-ness. The BK Ultimate Breakfast Platter is really too much food for one person in one sitting, but I'm sure many will still eat it all.

If you want just the pancakes and the sausage (like you can get at McDonald's), the Pancake and Sausage Platter retails for $2.89.

  1. Is this Ulitmate Breakfast Platter worth the hefty price?  Um, not really.  I had one and I thought the eggs were rubbery and the eggs and pancakes were a little bland.  The best parts were the hash browns and the sausage patty.  Maybe when I ordered they just made one mistake and didn't cook the eggs and pancakes properly thus the bland/rubbery taste.  Ah, well.

  2. Loved the ultimate breakfast platter, the biscuit was soft and flaky, i loved seeing scrambled eggs versus an egg patty and they were tasty. the sausage and pancakes were also good. I personally enjoyed the tater tot rounds more than McD's patty. It was more than enough food and I saved some of mine for lunch. I will definitely choose BK for breakfast in the future. Can't wait to try the blueberry muffins!!

  6. How is eating on the floor nasty? Your not eating off of the floor. I like sitting on the floor and eating at my coffee table all of the time. It's more comfortable than my diner table. Of course, I vacuum regularly, so no worries for me.

  7. You're right. We tried it this morning. But, as happens waaaay too often, we ordered it for carry-out and when I got home, they had neglected to include the hashbrowns... Grrrr! I called; they apologized and offered to give me something free. I don't want something "free"; I just want the food I order... when I order it. "Have it your way". Yeah, right.
