Review: Burger King - Egg-Normous Breakfast Burrito

Burger King's Egg-Normous Breakfast Burrito features sausage, thick-cut bacon, scrambled eggs, hash brown coins, shredded cheddar cheese, American cheese, and a creamy spicy sauce all wrapped up in a warm flour tortilla.

I paid $3.69 for one.

Picante sauce is supposed to come on the side but my local Burger King apparently does not stock it.

The sausage and bacon provide the requisite salty, greasy meatiness with the bacon adding some smoke but no crunch.

Similarly, the hash brown coins failed to provide any crispness whatsoever and was rather mushy. The potato flavor didn't come across so well either. I wonder if they could cook them extra long for some crunch.

The American and cheddar cheese were the typical mild stuff but was mostly melted and fairly abundant compared to everything else.

For something called the Egg-Normous, there wasn't all that much egg but they were pretty soft.

The creamy spicy sauce offered a mild tang, a bit of fermented funk, and just a slight kick. It was interesting but there wasn't enough of it to go around which resulted in an uneven flavor.

Overall, Burger King's Egg-Normous Breakfast Burrito offered a very standard breakfast combination with middling quality as far as fast food goes. It'd be more distinctive and lively with more sauce (or the sauce that was supposed to come with it). Fortunately, I added some salsa verde in the fridge for both flavor and kick to help me finish it off.
