Smart Ones Turkey Sausage English Muffin Sandwich

At Freezer Meal Frenzy, we love a good breakfast sandwich, and we’ve found some real winners in our time writing frozen food reviews. So we thought it was time to check out the Smart Ones Turkey Sausage English Muffin Sandwich to see how it holds up against the competition.

This is supposed to be a lightweight version of a true classic, at 230 calories a pop. Since this is a Weight Watchers product, the SmartPoints Value is easy to find; each sandwich is worth 7 SmartPoints — there are two sandwiches per box.

Thankfully, these are individually wrapped, so eating one at a time is no problem from a logistical standpoint. Simply pull one out of the wrapper, wrap it in a paper towel, and toss it into the microwave. You’ll have to flip it about 3/4 of the way through.

The paper towel trick actually does wonders for this, as the english muffin survives without getting soggy. It’s not as crispy as an english muffin straight out of the toaster, but it has the minimum amount of crisp required for a pleasant sandwich experience. Of course, if you pull it open and put your finger on the inside of the english muffin, it feels a little moist and sticky. It’s also a bit hard to chew.

The picture on the box greatly exaggerates the amount of cheese on one of these. In reality, the slice of American cheese here is miniscule, which we found a bit disappointing. And, since the egg white portion is virtually flavorless, this really needs a good, thick cheddar slice to sharpen up that taste.

The turkey sausage patty is the best part of this sandwich by far. It’s rich and juicy, and the flavor is excellent. There’s even a hint of spice to it.

While the sausage patty is great, the rest of the Smart Ones Turkey Sausage English Muffin Sandwich falls short of our expectations. None of the other ingredients really works on its own, and the sandwich eaten as a whole is definitely lacking. It’s also not very filling, so it will be tempting to eat both sandwiches in one sitting, which negates the benefits of a low-calorie breakfast. To get around that, you could try to pair it with some fruit and a hot cup of coffee, though the sandwich will be the least enjoyable part of that combo.
