Breakfast sandwiches are a filling and convenient way to start the day. It’s easy to get into the habit of stopping at your nearest fast-food restaurant on the way to work for one. For those looking to break this routine, Costco is carrying the Eat-in Breakfast Sandwich that can be microwaved in under two minutes and enjoyed at home or on the go. Are these breakfast sandwiches worth trading your McMuffin for?
We don’t go out for breakfast often anymore and I never make breakfast sandwiches. If I’m going to make something that takes a little more time it’s usually pancakes. I use Kodiak Power Cakes mix and Krusteaz Buttermilk Pancake Mix. The Krusteaz is my husband’s favorite mix. I serve pancakes with bacon or sausages like The Smokey River Meat Company Turkey Breakfast Sausages.
When I went on my solo trip to Costco I saw these new Eat In Breakfast Sandwiches and decided to pick them up as a treat!
If breakfast sandwiches aren’t your thing Costco also sells the Spudlers Breakfast Hash, La Terra Fina Quiche, El Monterey Breakfast Wraps and an assortment of breakfast pastries like the Kirkland Signature Muffins.
Location in Store
The breakfast sandwiches are in the freezer aisle near the other frozen breakfast products. The item number is 1164991.
If you’ve had fast food breakfast sandwiches before, particularly the McMuffin, these taste very similar! I’m not sure if I could taste the difference if I was blind taste tested. I think the bacon tastes like ham and the cheese is really processed tasting.
The egg is pretty salty and also tastes pretty processed. One thing I don’t like about these sandwiches is that the English muffin is very chewy! Enough to make me run out to buy a real McMuffin over these.
I think if the English muffin weren’t so tough I would think these are absolutely delicious, in a super processed, tastes-like hangover food way.
These aren’t cheap but they’re cheaper than running to your nearest fast-food joint to buy a similar version. The box contains 12 sandwiches and costs $21.89 Canadian.
Each breakfast sandwich comes individually packaged so it’s easy to pop one in your work lunch or send to school or sports practice. The sandwiches need to be kept frozen and the best-before date is eight months from when they were purchased.
To heat the sandwiches you just remove them from the plastic package, wrap them in paper towel and microwave them for a minute and thirty seconds. I’m sure they’d also be tasty and a bit more crispy if they were heated in the air fryer.
One sandwich contains 250 calories, 10 grams of fat, 26 grams of carbohydrates, one gram of fibre, two grams of sugar, 13 grams of protein and 670 milligrams of sodium, That’s almost half your daily sodium intake in one sandwich.
Fifteen grams of protein is nothing to scoff at but there are other healthier breakfasts with more protein to keep you full longer! The calories and fat are pretty similar to a McMuffin. The McMfuffin has about 40 more calories and one more gram of fat.
Making your own breakfast sandwich at home is a much healthier option. Your egg wouldn’t contain soy lecithin or soybean oil and your list of ingredients would be much shorter without so many chemicals and additives.
The sandwiches contain wheat, soy, eggs and milk.
Give it a try!
I think these would be super convenient for camping this summer and they are pretty tasty if you like breakfast sandwiches from fast food restaurants!
