Review: Carl's Jr. - Big Country Breakfast Burrito

A "kitchen sink" breakfast burrito, Carl's Jr.'s Big Country Breakfast Burrito features sausage gravy, scrambled eggs, sausage, ham, bacon bits, hash brown nuggets, and shredded jack and cheddar cheeses wrapped up in a warm flour tortilla.

It comes at $3.29 a pop at my local Carl's Jr.

The Big Country Breakfast Burrito adds a little "oomph" to the breakfast burrito with the addition of sausage gravy to the more standard ingredients. It's just a little though. Sadly, the gravy lacked seasoning and was on the bland side. I was hoping at least for some peppery notes.
The textures left me wanting as well. It was all kinda mushy. I wanted some crunch from the hash browns and bacon bits but the bacon was minuscule and the hash browns didn't stand well against the gravy (which was spooned right over them apparently) leaving very little crispness and mostly just greasiness. The egg came out nice though.

The burrito isn't exactly what I would call "big" either; more like typical fast-food-sized. Overall, I'd have to say Carl's Jr.'s Big Country Breakfast Burrito was neither big in size nor big on flavor.
