Review: McDonald's Turkey Sausage & Egg White Breakfast Bowl

McDonald's Turkey Sausage & Egg White Breakfast Bowl features cut-up pieces of turkey sausage and egg whites topped with kale, spinach, bruschetta, and cheddar jack cheese.

I bought one for $3.99. It's one of two bowls being tested here in Southern California.

There's about three to four eggs' worth of egg whites in the folded mass included in the bowl. They were soft and somewhat fluffy.

The turkey sausage was moist and flavorful. Compared to McDonald's regular breakfast sausage, it wasn't as salty nor as heavily seasoned.

There's a good handful of greens on top, considering that they were wilted down. The kale looked to be baby kale as it wasn't as fibrous as matured kale. Both provided a good amount of flavor and plant-life not normally associated with McDonald's breakfast. If the bowls don't make it out of test, it might be a good idea to keep the greens as an additional option on their Egg McMuffins.

The bruschetta seemed indistinguishable from the pico de gallo of the Chorizo Bowl. Both offered mostly tangy tomato notes and not much else.

The cheddar jack cheese was very nicely melted but with a very mild flavor that pretty much amounted to vague creaminess.

Overall, I enjoyed McDonald's Turkey Sausage & Egg White Breakfast Bowl for its main components. The greens were also very good but the cheese and bruschetta could use some work. I could see the draw of this for people looking for something healthier and quick at McDonald's for breakfast.
