Bountiful Life Chipotle Scramble Review

Bountiful Life Chipotle Scramble

If you keep an eye out for the products that Oprah puts her name on, then you’re probably already familiar with the Bountiful Life Chipotle Scramble. At Freezer Meal Frenzy, we honestly don’t pay much attention to Oprah’s product recommendations, but we do tend to enjoy a good breakfast bowl. So we thought we’d give the Bountiful Life Chipotle Scramble a shot.

We have checked out the Bountiful Life by Oprah line in the past. We weren’t all that enthusiastic about the Greens & Protein Pesto Scramble, but we have a hunch that this chipotle bowl will be much more to our liking.

Before we dig in, this must be heated. The instructions on the box say you shouldn’t try to heat this in an oven or a toaster oven, so you’ll need to use the microwave. It takes four minutes, and then you’ve got yourself a steamy hot bowl of chipotle-infused breakfast. (You can see the full cooking instructions by scrolling to the bottom of this review and checking out our package scans.)

When we tried the Greens & Protein Pesto Scramble, we mentioned that it didn’t have a lot of flavor. That’s not a problem with the Chipotle Scramble, as the chipotle sauce really packs a flavorful punch. It’s smokey-tasting and just a little bit spicy — it’s quite good.

However, that’s where the pros of this breakfast end. As you can see in the image above, this comes out looking all pockmarked and weird. The reason for that is that the eggs are gritty and gravely, which is a really unappealing quality for eggs to have. We’d estimate that at least half this meal is egg, so we think it really needs some higher-quality stuff in order to work at all.

The turkey sausage has some problems as well. This is maybe the most rubbery sausage we’ve ever had in a frozen meal. In fact, it’s a little bit like chewing on a superball. Now some rubbery chewiness is pretty common with frozen turkey sausage, but we’ve actually had some that we really liked. The stuff in this bowl is really disappointing.

There are some chunks of potatoes in the mix as well, but they’re pretty small and kind of watery. They don’t have that satisfying heartiness that we expect from roasted potatoes. And that means this bowl isn’t filling at all. It only has 250 calories, so maybe that’s not a problem, but we would have liked to have felt at least a little bit satisfied after eating this. Instead, this scramble just left us wanting more food.

The Bountiful Life Chipotle Scramble uses a tasty sauce to cover up a low-quality breakfast bowl. Aside from the chipotle sauce, which is actually really good, the disappointing ingredients add up to a bummer of a breakfast that won’t even leave you feeling full. We wish we could recommend this just due to the sauce, but we unfortunately can’t.
