Review: Bacon Supreme Omelet Breakfast Sandwich from Dunkin’ Donuts
Sometimes I’m enticed by a new fast food product for reasons that might not make a lot of sense. The new Bacon Supreme Omelet Breakfast Sandwich from Dunkin’ Donuts didn’t lure me in with its bacon or by calling itself “Supreme”. There’s only two ingredients that really make this sandwich different from most of Dunkin’s other stuff and that’s the potatoes and green onions.
Dunkin’ Donuts describes their new Bacon Supreme Omelet Breakfast Sandwich like this:
This immensely satisfying breakfast sandwich is topped with bacon, American cheese, and an omelet filled with red and green bell peppers, potatoes and green onions—all served on an oven toasted flaky croissant. Eat up!
Immensely satisfying is a stretch, but I still found the sandwich to be an “OK” new offering. There’s nothing that stands out specifically as far as problem areas go, and at the same time, there’s no standout selling points either.
The bulk of the space in the Bacon Supreme Omelet Sandwich is occupied by the oversized omelet patty. The omelet has almost twice the amount of egg you’d find in other Dunkin’ breakfast sandwiches… and at $3.79, thankfully it’s filling. Missing from the description of the sandwich are a couple of ingredients that weren’t noticeable enough to be worth mentioning in much detail. Apparently there’s bits of mushroom and some Monterey Jack cheese within the omelet mix and they are MIA just like the potatoes.
What you see is what you get and with that said, the red and green bell peppers and the pieces of green onions are noticeable visually so it sort of pushes your brain to seek out those flavors. I found the flavors, but none were potent enough to make an impact to the overall sandwich. The combination of ingredients makes for a heartier omelet with some extra substance to the texture and that’s about it.
There were four pieces of bacon for some added salty protein and a slice of American cheese that had a nice melt going for it. I loved the oven-toasted croissant despite its greasy, flaky mess. It’s buttery and a has a hint of sweetness that assists the flavor balance. Overall, the new Bacon Supreme Omelet Breakfast Sandwich is a decent item, but not too memorable. With recent excellent menu innovations like Sweet Black Pepper Bacon, I found myself wanting a taste of that in this sandwich. Also, in my opinion, Dunkin’ Donuts has the best hash browns in the fast food world so why not incorporate that into this? Those hash browns have a standout flavor of potato and onion that could takeover whatever potato and green onion concoction this omelet was going for.
Pros: Bigger omelet, fiilling. Croissant.
Cons: Almost 4 bucks for a breakfast sandwich. Most of the ingredients within the omelet are hard to identify.
