Trader Joe’s Eggwich breadless breakfast sandwich is a tasty and convenient option for those who want a low-carb, high-protein breakfast on the go. This sandwich comes with a filling of eggs, turkey sausage, and American cheese, all sandwiched between two fluffy egg patties instead of bread.
The first thing that caught my attention was the packaging. The Eggwich comes in a small, brightly-colored box that is easy to spot on the shelf. Inside the box, there are two egg individually wrapped Eggwich sandwiches wrapped in plastic, making it easy to grab and go on busy mornings. It would probably stay frozen long enough to make it to work where you can pop it in the office microwave. The packaging also boasts that the sandwich is free from gluten and artificial flavors, which is a big plus for those with dietary restrictions.
When I opened the package, I was pleased to see that the sandwich looked just as advertised. The two egg patties were thick and held together well, and the filling of eggs, turkey sausage, and American cheese looked appetizing. I microwaved the sandwich for the recommended time of 1 minute and 15 seconds, and it came out hot and ready to eat.
The taste was surprisingly good for a pre-packaged breakfast sandwich. The eggs were fluffy and tasted fresh, and the turkey sausage was flavorful and not too greasy. The American cheese was melted and added a nice creamy texture to the sandwich. The combination of all the ingredients worked well together, and I was impressed with how well the egg patties held everything together.
One thing to note is that this sandwich is on the smaller side, at 190 calories per sandwich, so if you have a big appetite, you may want to pair it with a side dish or snack or eat two of them. However, for me, the sandwich was the perfect size for a quick breakfast before heading out the door.
In terms of nutrition, the Eggwich is a great option for those who are looking to cut down on carbs. Each sandwich has only 3 grams of carbohydrates and a whopping 16 grams of protein, which makes it a filling and satisfying breakfast. The sandwich is also relatively low in calories, with only 10 calories per serving.
The only downside that I could see was that the egg top and bottom were relatively dry. The cheese helps a little but not much. Also, when cooking it, the cheese melted and ran out of the sandwich and stuck to the paper towel they recommend putting around it.
Overall, I would definitely recommend Trader Joe’s Eggwich breadless breakfast sandwich to anyone who wants a quick and easy breakfast option that is both tasty and low in carbs. It’s convenient, affordable, and tastes great, which makes it a win in my book. I am going to give it 7 Bells! Just because of the mess of cooking and the dryness of the eggs.
