Dr. Taunt-a-burger breakfasts at Taco Bell

Posted on April 6, 2014


Following the untenable desire for ever-expanding profit, Taco Bell has ventured into the fast food category with the most growth – breakfast.

On offer are various “tacos” and “burritos” that do not appear to have anything in common with the establishment’s normal fare, aside from the shape. A waffle square with a sausage patty and some scrambled egg with cheese on top – fold the entire mess in half and you have their flagship breakfast “taco”. While the egg was sub-par it was far from inedible, making this a viable choice for one whose sweet tooth is overruling their better judgement.
The grilled breakfast taco is slightly more authentic, being presented in a flour tortilla. It’s one of a small bargain line-up; containing scrambled egg, cheese and a choice of bacon or sausage. Having had sausage in my previous “taco” I regrettably opted for bacon. There is no bacon. The entire breakfast line-up uses, where bacon is called for, what appears to be Hormel bacon pieces straight from the resealable bag. Still, it wasn’t terrible, and plugs a gap for a traditional breakfast sandwich.
I also partook of an A.M. Crunchwrap (sausage), which pleasantly surprised me by including one of Taco Bell’s standard sauces (the peppery one) – finally bridging the gap between the fare and the venue.
Over-all, not bad food, but nothing special either. Dr. T’s recommendation: don’t go out of your way.
