Today I’m reviewing the Costco El Monterey Egg, Sausage, Cheese & Potato Breakfast Wraps. I’ve seen these breakfast wraps at Costco for a really long time but haven’t reviewed them before.

Other Costco breakfast items I’ve reviewed are the Costco Spudlers Breakfast Hash, Costco Smokey River Meat Company Turkey Breakfast Sausages, Costco Crepini Egg Wraps and the Costco Garden Lite Veggies Made Great Spinach Egg White Frittatas.

Location in Store

You can find these El Monterey breakfast wraps in the freezer section at Costco. The item number is 1226702.

Taste

My wrap came out of the microwave hot, even after letting it cool for the recommended two minutes. You have to be careful with the first couple of bites!

The tortilla is soft and chewy and a little on the thick side. I could do with a little less tortilla. The filling is flavorful with a decent amount of spiciness; it might be too much for people who are sensitive to spicy foods, but I liked it.

The filling seems to be mainly eggs and cheese, but I notice plenty of sausage and potato chunks too. The cheese is probably the most noticeable flavor in the wraps.

Overall, I don’t love the taste and I find the wraps really heavy, mainly because of the tortilla, but the cheese and potato contribute to this too.

Cost

I paid $12.99 Canadian for the bag of 14 breakfast wraps. This isn’t cheap but it’s less expensive compared to buying a breakfast wrap from a restaurant or fast food joint.

Convenience

One nice thing about the breakfast wraps is how well they’re wrapped and how they stay together as you’re eating them. My wrap didn’t leak or come apart at all. The wraps are microwaveable and are only take one minute 30 seconds in the microwave.

Be cautious taking the wrap out of the microwave as it’s very hot after heating it in the microwave. Each wrap is individually packaged, they need to be kept frozen and the best before date is about 14 months from the date we purchased the wraps.

Breakfast wraps are convenient for busy mornings. Additionally, because the wraps are individually packaged you can easily pop one in your bag to bring to work or school to heat up.

Ingredients

The Costco El Monterey Breakfast Wraps have a long ingredients list with unhealthy ingredients like soybean oil, vegetable oil, corn syrup, sugar and processed cheddar cheese. Honestly if you can make a breakfast wrap at home and skip these that would be far healthier.

Overall

Give it a try!

Honestly I can’t say I love the Costco El Monterey Egg, Sausage, Cheese & Potato Breakfast Wraps. They’re convenient but the taste just isn’t worth the calories and unhealthy ingredients.

Have you tried these? What did you think of them?

  1. I like the Chicken Taquitos that Costco sells by them, they are really tasty and convenient. Frozen burritos have never ever once impressed me so I would skip these.
