Udi’s Chicken Maple Sausage Breakfast Sandwich Review

Udi's Chicken Maple Sausage Breakfast Sandwich

For those avoiding gluten, Udi’s brand foods are a lifesaver. Udi’s will bring pasta, pizza, burritos, and more back into your life, and with their line of breakfast foods, the most important meal of the day is covered.

The Chicken Maple Sausage Breakfast Sandwich is a decent attempt at a small, gluten-free breakfast, but it misses the mark in a few key areas.

These sandwiches take twice as long to heat as Sweet Earth’s Farmstand sandwiches do, though keep in mind that Udi’s uses real meat while Sweet Earth uses vegetarian-friendly substitutes. The extra cook time is for your own safety. That doesn’t make it convenient, of course. Then again, we’re talking about three minutes as opposed to a minute and a half, so this isn’t a huge complaint; we’ve just grown quite fond of Sweet Earth’s sandwich cook times.

The flatbread biscuit is the biggest problem here. The box makes it look fluffy, but it’s more like a cracker than an actual biscuit. It’s not soggy, which we’re thankful for, but it’s crunchy and rubbery at the same time, which is not pleasant to bite into. Now, we understand that this has to be┬áthe toughest part about creating a good breakfast sandwich without gluten, so we don’t want to be so hard on it. But we did find it to be off-putting.

The other parts of the sandwich, however, are quite good. The chicken maple sausage patty is definitely the bestpart of this meal. The second you pull this thing out of the microwave, the smell of maple syrup will have you salivating. The egg white patty is a little mushier than we’d like, but that also allows it to soak up the juices from the sausage. So even though the texture is a little off, the flavor is on point.

There’s some cheddar cheese as well, but the portion is small and it melts into the other components, so you might completely forget that it’s even there. We would have liked a bigger portion, but perhaps that would have taken a little something away from the true king of this sandwich, the sausage.

The bottom line: we were impressed by the sausage, but the biscuit made this meal a little hard to stomach. We’re sure that’s a constant problem for anyone who needs to avoid gluten for medical reasons, so we do feel a little bad about calling it out so prominently. To be completely honest, we were hoping for something a little bit more like what we saw on the box art.
