Review: Burger King - Sausage, Egg, and Cheese Croissan'wich

Burger King Croisan'wich
Burger King's Croissan'wich is one of the few croissant breakfast sandwich options available in fast food land and the first that I ever tried as a kid. The Sausage, Egg, and Cheese version comes, unsurprisingly, with a sausage patty, fluffy folded eggs, and a slice of melted American cheese.

My local Burger King offers them for $2.99.

One of the things about getting a croissant from a fast food chain is that the croissant always gets a little flattened, which tastes fine but doesn't look so appealing.

That being said, Burger King's croissant is pretty tasty. It's a lot on the soft size (like if you bought a store croissant and microwaved it), but it's buttery, flaky, and has a good number of layers. You might get more of a crust if you eat it at the restaurant, but since most people tend to order fast food breakfast to-go, I recommend using the toaster oven for a minute or two if you have access to one.

Burger King's sausage is fairly middling. It does its job, but it doesn't really stand out. I'd like a bit more seasoning on it. Like more pepper or garlic or something herby like rosemary or sage. McDonald's does a good job with their sausage, with the way Burger King's been copying McDonald's, I wish they'd copy that too.

The egg was really good. It's one of those pre-mixes but it was fluffy, soft, and warm. They give you two reasonably-thick layers worth.

The cheese was melted to oozing and offered the distinct flavor of American cheese.

Overall, there's a lot to like with Burger King's Sausage, Egg, and Cheese Croissan'wich. Sausage, egg, and cheese is a tried-and-true combination and Burger King manages to balance the proportions very well. If you like croissant breakfast sandwiches, Burger King has a pretty good one.
