Special K: Sausage, Egg & Cheese Flatbread Sandwich

After a long hiatus, Tasty Lies has returned!  Our apologies for the long time away. As noted in the last review I moved cross-country back to California over the New Year’s holiday and have been without internet in my apartment until this past weekend.  So posting new reviews has been a bit problematic. Hopefully we can get back on a bit more of a schedule now, though.  Starting with this!

Today we have a breakfast sandwich from our breakfast expert, Marissa. This is the first time we’ve seen one from Special K. I don’t know about you, but in my mind Special K is the cereal people. I didn’t know they had frozen meals as well. Hopefully it’s even partially as good as their cereal. Let’s check it out!

Well, so far it looks like your standard breakfast sandwich. The main difference is that instead of being on an English muffin or biscuit, this one is on flatbread. That makes it healthy! Right? The cheese is also different. Usually you get yellow cheddar on just about every single breakfast sandwich. I’m not sure exactly what this cheese it, but I’m intrigued. The egg and sausage look decent. Let’s see what the real deal looks like!

It looks pretty good, to be honest.  The cheese melts a lot better than the box would have you believe. The fact that it’s white cheese helps it stand out, I think. On the box the sausage and the egg are the same size.  Obviously that’s not quite the case with this one, the egg is a bit bigger. It looks fluffy, which I didn’t expect. I’m really hopeful for this one, but of course Marissa will be the judge.

Another morning, another breakfast sandwich. During my last trip to the grocery store, I was happy to see a new offering for breakfast Sandwich. The Kellogg’s Special K Sausage flatbread looked pretty good. Nutritionally, it is VERY comparable (SK has a fewer calories, but a little more fat and everything else), to the Jimmy Dean D-Lights Sausage sandwich (and you all know how much I like that one) so I figured this might be ok, but not as good.

I was wrong. This is definitely as good. The cheese (which I had to find out from the ingredients what KIND) is “Pasteurized Process White Cheddar Cheese Product” which is almost the same as the JD one, except not yellow. And the cheese actually has a lot of flavor, more than JD. Also, there is a healthy amount of kick to this sausage. I would definitely say that it’s spicier than the JD one. The “flatbread” is one of their Sandwich Thins. Although it got a little harder around the edges, because it is so thin you don’t notice it as much as you do on some of the thicker breads that get really chewy or inedible.

Huh. I guess this one is almost better. Who knew!?!
