Udi’s Uncured Bacon Breakfast Burrito: Second Opinion

Udi's Uncured Bacon Breakfast Burrito

We tried Udi’s Uncured Bacon Breakfast Burrito not long ago (you can read the full review here), and we were a little bit underwhelmed. Of course, whenever we post a negative review, we have a tendency to question our judgement after the fact. Had we really cooked the food item properly? Is there something we were supposed to do that would have made us enjoy it more?

When we reviewed this particular burrito, we followed the microwave instructions for the most part. After all was said and done, we had the nagging suspicion that it might turn out better in the oven. We decided the only fair thing to do was to give it a second chance.

The microwaved version looked like this:

You can see how the texture of the wrap could be immediately off-putting. It has the look of finger skin that’s been in a chlorinated pool for far too long.

For the second round, we let the burrito thaw overnight, then wrapped it in tinfoil and stuck it into a pre-heated oven (at about 375 degrees fahrenheit). We let it cook for about 25 minutes, flipping it over about halfway through. Here’s how it turned out:

As you can see, it’s an improvement, but it came out of the oven smelling like melted plastic. That was clearly not a good sign. The bottom of the shell was still soggy as well. We’re inclined to think the sogginess problem is a result of the gluten-free shell trying to hold all the ingredients and the microwave isn’t to blame here. This shell just isn’t up to the task.

Despite its odd smell and sogginess, the filling still tastes okay. It’s not our favorite breakfast burrito by any means, but it will do in a pinch.

We would have loved to have been proven wrong on this one, but it turns out that our first instincts were correct. This burrito just can’t rise above mediocrity. If Udi’s were willing to up the quality of the filling ingredients, we’d be more willing to forgive them for the weird shell consistency. But as is, we just don’t have a lot of nice things to say about Udi’s Uncured Bacon Breakfast Burrito. A second tasting session couldn’t change that.
