Review: Taco Bell - Grilled Breakfast Burritos

L to R: Fiesta Potato, Sausage, and Bacon
Taco Bell's Grilled Breakfast Burritos features scrambled eggs, warm nacho cheese, and a choice of either sausage, bacon, or seasoned Fiesta potatoes and pico de gallo, wrapped up in a flour tortilla and grilled.

I ended up trying all three for $1.29 a piece.

These are basically Taco Bell's existing (but renamed) Cheesy Burrito except they're grilled and come with nacho cheese rather than cheddar. Since you can ask them to grill your Cheesy Burrito, it really comes down to whether you prefer nacho cheese or cheddar with your breakfast staples.

I tried the sausage first. The sausage comes in crumbles like you find at some pizza chains. It had a decent flavor with slight peppery-ness to it.

This was the sausage burrito; the distribution was less than ideal
I wasn't a fan of the sausage-nacho cheese combination. There was actually a slight bit of heat to the cheese that I don't usually notice, but there was a prominent American cheese flavor that overwhelmed the other ingredients and just wasn't working for me.

Ah, there's the sausage!
I liked the bacon version a little better as the bacon-cheese combination just tasted better to me. My bits of bacon were all clumped up though, which made it tasty, but too salty as well.

The Fiesta potatoes offer up a nice, seasoned profile that goes well with the cheese. It also gives you something different from the other two with the pico de gallo, which was pretty tangy. It might be too tangy in some bites though. It's also the biggest of three burritos.

Overall, Taco Bell's Grilled Breakfast Burritos were just okay. I mentioned earlier that it really comes down to whether your prefer nacho cheese or cheddar with your sausage/bacon/potatoes and, in general, I'd rather have cheddar cheese.
