Review: Taco Bell - Sausage Flatbread Melt

Sitting at the cheap end of Taco Bell's new breakfast menu, the Sausage Flatbread Melt features a sausage patty and shredded cheddar folded inside of a flatbread and grilled.

I picked one up for $1.

The meat-to-bread was pretty nice with this one, especially compared to your typical breakfast sandwiches.

The pillowy flatbread was my favorite part. It was grilled to just the slightest thin, crispy crust, while remaining soft, warm and airy inside. I wouldn't mind just eating a warm, grilled flatbread by itself.

The sausage was meaty but could stand to use a few more herbs and/or spices. As it was, it feels like meat and salt and not much else.

I could have used a bit more cheese, while I could taste it, the flavor is very light and doesn't the texture never quite reaches the ooze of "melt" status.

As for eating-on-the-go, the Sausage Flatbread Melt is pretty near perfect for that. It's folded closed on three sides with just one open end. The cheese, though thin, was completely melted, and the sausage patty was firmly ensconced inside the flatbread. You can pretty much run and eat this without dropping a thing.

Overall, Taco Bell's Sausage Flatbread Melt was decent but a bit plain. It's cheap though and you can always grab a sauce packet or two to liven it up. I wonder if you can get it with warm nacho cheese or if that's not available in the mornings...
