Life Cuisine Uncured Turkey Bacon & Aged White Cheddar Egg Bites Review

Life Cuisine Uncured Turkey Bacon & Aged White Cheddar Egg Bites

When we first learned that Lean Cuisine was getting into the business of low-carb breakfast bites, we were pretty excited about it. We love tasty breakfast items, and while Lean Cuisine isn’t our favorite frozen food brand, they do have some hits in their frozen meal lineup (as well as in their Life Cuisine spinoff brand).

However, our first encounter with Lean Cuisine’s egg bites didn’t go so well. We tried the Tomato & Spinach Egg Bites, and our reviewers couldn’t even finish them (split between two people). One reviewer commented that they tasted like bad cheese, and another that they tasted like soap. Ouch.

But that won’t stop us from pressing onward into this frozen food line. After all, we need to report to our readers how various flavors stack up against each other. It is our duty as frozen food reviewers. So today we’re going to check out the Life Cuisine Uncured Turkey Bacon & Aged White Cheddar Egg Bites (by Lean Cuisine). Wish us luck!

According to the box, all you have to do to cook these is remove them from the wrapper and microwave them for two minutes. For us, this ended up being not quite enough time, so we gave them an extra 30 seconds in the microwave. (To read the full cooking instructions directly from the box, check out the package scans at the bottom of this review.)

As you can see in the image above, these come out looking a bit pale and sickly. What you can’t see is that the texture is super weird. These have a consistency that’s soft and chunky like cheesecake, which is far less appealing in a hot egg bake than in a cold slice of cheesecake. There’s also no grainy crust to serve as a texture contrast here, like there would be on a cheesecake, and that makes it more difficult to stomach.

The flavor here isn’t awful, but it’s not great either. We think these are better tasting than their spinach counterparts, which is probably due to the turkey bacon. The salty meat gives them some much-needed flavor, because the egg portion on its own is pretty bland (though there are still undertones of stake cheese).

Even so, we struggled once again to finish these. The consistency wore us down to the point where we started feeling a bit gaggy by the end of the first egg bite. We had to stop eating before we started getting sick.

There are two egg bites in a box, and the serving size is two. That means there is one serving per box. A serving contains 280 calories (160 from fat) and 810 mg of sodium, which comes out to 140 calories and 405 mg of sodium per egg bite. Of course, you can reduce those numbers even more by not finishing your egg bites — you might not be able to!

The Life Cuisine Uncured Turkey Bacon & Aged White Cheddar Egg Bites are better than their vegetarian-friendly counterparts, but they’re still not great. In fact, the soft, curdled-milk consistency was off-putting enough that one reviewer couldn’t finish two egg bites (this same reviewer tasted the spinach ones prior to this). If eggs are your jam, there are much, much better options on the market. In fact, we recently discovered the Jimmy Dean Sausage Skillet, and it really knocked our socks off. As for the Lean Cuisine egg bites, however, we can’t recommend them.
