Review: Starbucks - Bacon, Gouda Cheese & Egg Frittata on an Artisan Roll

Starbucks Bacon, Gouda Cheese & Egg Frittata on an Artisan Roll features bacon, Parmesan frittata, and aged Gouda cheese on an artisan roll for $3.25.

It's a breakfast option at Starbucks in the morning but if you're lucky like me, you can snag the last one late in the afternoon.

I have to say I was a bit dubious about the quality of a reheated sandwich but Starbucks surprised me. It is a little more pricey than say, McDonald's, but it's also a bit more quality.
The melted Gouda cheese was a nice touch providing excellent flavor. The bacon was about as thin as the typical fast food stuff but provided more flavor than I expected.

The egg was uniform and fluffy. According to the ingredients, there's a bit of Monterey jack, milk, and Parmesan in there but I didn't detect it.
The Artisan ciabatta roll had a nice texture with just a bit of chew to it. It was similar to a store-bought English muffin but a little better.

Overall, Starbucks' Bacon, Gouda & Egg Frittata on an Artisan Roll was a very enjoyable breakfast sandwich. It's most distinguishing features over the typical fast food fare would have to be the Gouda and the Artisan roll which are used to good effect.

  1. Looks good. Is the Gouda smoked? The bacon actually looks kinda weak - I'd want something heftier, like Arby's bacon. But I do love me some Ciabatta. I find that I like it well toasted though.

  2. I dunno if I've eaten enough Gouda to be even able to tell if it was smoked for not. It didn't taste smoky though. The bacon does look really weak (like most fast food places) but packed a decent amount of flavor. 

    It is Starbucks, so you can always have them toast it extra long for you.

  3. 9 pts in WW points is estimated due to the fiber content is not posted with the nutritional information.If the fiber were added to the nutritional information the Weight Watcher points most likely would be less.
