Burger King Enormous Omelette Sandwich - - meh......

Decided I was too lazy to make breakfast for myself this morning, and also realized that I had a coupon for a free BK Enormous Omelette Sandwich (if I bought a BK EOS value meal) that was expiring today. So I hop in the car and race to the nearest BK, getting there about 5 minutes after breakfast service closes. They were gracious enough to serve me up a couple of the EOS's along with a large hash brown nuggets and Minute Maid OJ.
Went home and dug in. BK wasn't lying when they used the term Enormous. Roll is about 7 inchese long by 3 inches wide. Multiple layers of American cheese, along with a layer of eggs (omelette style), bacon (pre-cooked dreck) and sausage patty (should've asked for it to be cooked crisped). Weight is substantial. Taste's like a fast food creation, rather than anything resembling homemade. I'm scared to look up what the caloric and fat count is for the EOS, but it's definitely not worth it IMO. I think Costco could have a better version of this in their freezer section if they put their minds to it.
I would never order this again unless I had a coupon and no other credible food choices available. Two BK EOS's, large hash brown nuggets and a 10 oz. MM OJ carton set me back $4.85 total after the coupon was applied. At least it was cheap......=-/
... "I'm scared to look up what the caloric and fat count is for the EOS, but it's definitely not worth it IMO. " ...
You intrigued me, so I decided to look it up.
Each sandwich has 730 calories and 45 grams of fat. So two has 1460 calories and 90 grams of fat.
Hash browns have 230 calories and 15 grams of fat.
Orange juice has 140 calories and 0 grams of fat.
All told that's (getting out calculator) 1830 calories and 105 grams of fat.
At least Ultimate Cheeseburgers taste good. The EOS is terrible, as is the entirety of BK's breakfast menu in my opinion. If you want a fast food breakfast, I've found that McDonald's sausage biscuit is the best. The sausage is nicely spiced and the biscuits are founts of buttery goodness.
I really like the sausage biscuit at McD’s too.. the sausage itself is very tasty. But if I want something with an egg, I usually go for the sausage and egg croissant at BK. And I think it tastes MUCH better if you order it without the cheese.
That Enormous Omelette thing just scares the bejesus out of me.....
I personally find the McD's biscuit creations too dry. For me, the biscuit overwhelms the fillings. I'm actually pretty fond of the steak, egg & cheese bagel @ McD's, counting that as my fave fast food breakfast item.
