Review: Carl's Jr. - Sausage, Egg, and Cheese Biscuit

The Carl's Jr. Sausage, Egg, and Cheese Biscuit features their new Made From Scratch biscuits and replaces the Sunrise Croissant at the Carl's Jr. locations that carry them.

They go for $1.89 each but there's a promo where you can pick up two for a very affordable $2.

I've written about the new biscuits before, but I'll say again: they're a little bigger than the norm, and have a nice crust that's a bit chewy. They're spongy soft inside but could stand some more butter.

The sausage, egg, and cheese are pretty standard but there's really not much variation on this staple at any of the major fast food chains that serve it. The egg here is thin and folded, the cheese is nicely melted, and the sausage, like most fast food breakfast sausages are salty and seasoned.

At the promotion price of $1, it's cheaper than buying a frozen Jimmy Dean version of the same from the supermarket.

Bottom line? A cheap, standard breakfast sandwich. For a buck, you get more than you'd get a McDonald's or Burger King (which has a two for $3 breakfast sandwich promo this month).
