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.
