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

Carl's Jr.'s (also Hardee's but I live on the West Coast) Maple Sausage, Egg, and Cheese Biscuit features three maple sausage links, a slice of American cheese, and egg in a fresh-made biscuit.

It's $2.69 for one but I received this one courtesy of Carl's Jr.

The biscuit had a nice, hard crust and soft, dense interior and seems a fair bit bigger than other fast food chains. That being said it's also a little too big for three sausages. It's pretty thick as well leaving me with a couple of less enjoyable sausage-less bites.

The sausages had a nice sear to them and looked pretty tasty. They ended up being just typical though; there was a little bit too much gristle and the maple flavor was a bit too light. I felt like I should have poured a little syrup on.

The egg was of the folded variety and was pretty soft and a little fluffy. The cheese was standard American and melt through.

Overall, Carl's Jr. Maple Sausage, Egg, and Cheese Biscuit felt like a pretty ordinary sausage breakfast biscuit with just a touch of maple and a little too much biscuit.

  1. compared to their Johnsonville Smoked Sausage biscuit, which I loved, this is an epic fail. The "maple" sausages tasted neither like maple, nor even sausage... and they were mushy...

  2. Agreed. The sandwich was okay at best. It was no where near as good as McDonald's. (Now there's a sentence I wouldn't have thought I would ever write!)

  3. Didn't this sandwich already get reviewed on this site? I know I posted my own scathing review in the comments section. Stick with bacon/ egg/ cheese, Sausage & gravy Bisc, or Ultimate Omelette. Those are much better choices. .
