Review: Taco Bell - Sausage Flatbread Quesadilla

Taco Bell's Sausage Flatbread Quesadilla features a grilled flatbread filled with three-cheese blend, sausage, and scrambled eggs.

It's one of the new items on Taco Bell's new $1 Morning Value Menu and, as such, cost me a buck.

You can consider the Sausage Flatbread Quesadilla as the spiritual successor of the similarly named Sausage Flatbread Melt, a launch item of Taco Bell's initial breakfast launch that was eventually discontinued. Like the former, it was also $1 (but didn't include egg).

The cheese, sausage, and egg combo are pretty standard for breakfast. The Sausage Flatbread veers toward the egg side of the trio and I could have used a lot more cheese and a little more sausage.

The egg was nice and soft with a light taste and just slightly spongy feel.

The cheese was thoroughly melted but there wasn't enough for more than a very thin layer, which wasn't enough to get me thinking "quesadilla."

The sausage was decent and fairly standard was far as fast food sausage goes with a lightly seasoned, salty, meaty profile.

I liked the pillowy soft texture of the flatbread, which looks to be the same as a Taco Bell Gordita shell. It didn't seem to have been grilled/pressed at all though. I was hoping for a bit of that crispy sear like they had on the melt.

Between the quesadilla and the melt versions, I'd pick the latter for the extra texture from the grill-press and extra sausage.

Overall, Taco Bell's Sausage Flatbread Quesadilla felt more like a Breakfast Gordita. Beyond the flatbread, it doesn't offer anything new to the breakfast menu but does a decent job of it for a very affordable price. I'd recommend adding some sauce and asking them to give it a good grilling.
