Review: Breakfast Baconator from Wendy’s
Did you know that Wendy’s has breakfast? They’re few and far between, but I found a Wendy’s within an hours drive that offers breakfast. I couldn’t resist picking up the Breakfast Baconator as my first Wendy’s breakfast experience.Here’s how Wendy’s describes their Breakfast Baconator:
Grilled sausage, American cheese, Applewood smoked bacon, fresh-cracked grade A eggs, (deep breath) more cheese and more bacon all covered in swiss cheese sauce. Don’t just break your fast. Destroy it.
I’ve reviewed Baconator Fries and the Son of Baconator, but not the actual Baconator (shame). Now I’m onto another offshoot of the original with the Breakfast Baconator. Let’s review:As my first experience into breakfast at Wendy’s, the Breakfast Baconator really takes care of a lot of important breakfast sandwich components. There’s sausage, egg, cheese and of course a lot of bacon. It’s a well put together sandwich. The fried egg was pretty perfect with just the right amount of runny yolk. There’s plenty of cheese… two American cheese slices and Swiss cheese sauce on the inside of the top bun. Unfortunately, both cheeses weren’t flavor standouts. I would’ve preferred a sharp cheddar.The grilled sausage patty beefed up the sandwich a little, yet needed some extra peppery seasoning. It was about the size of a Jr. Hamburger patty. Fortunately, this is a Breakfast Baconator and the bacon did not disappoint. There were six pieces of Applewood Smoked bacon layered on two levels of the sandwich. Each bite had some salty pork to work through so this sandwich was worthy of the Breakfast Baconator name.My Breakfast Baconator was priced at $3.99. Considering it features sausage, six strips of bacon, plus all the cheese it was right in the sweet spot of premium breakfast sandwich values. While not everything was stellar, the bacon was the highlight as it should be. This is worth a try if you can find a Wendy’s that offers breakfast.
Pros: Six strips of bacon. Good-sized breakfast sandwich for a fair price.
Cons: With all that cheese, it didn't make the impact it should have. Sausage was under seasoned.
