Banquet Brown ‘N Serve French Toast Breakfast Review

Banquet Brown 'N Serve French Toast Breakfast

We love ourselves some breakfast here at Freezer Meal Frenzy — it’s why we can’t stop reviewing the stuff. That said, we approached the Banquet Brown ‘N Serve French Toast Breakfast with a bit of hesitation. It’s not that we don’t love French toast; it’s that we’re not sure Banquet has the chops to pull this off. Frozen French toast is already a difficult prospect, and this one costs somewhere around two dollars.

But we’re going to try this anyway. “Who knows?” we thought. “This could end up being amazing.” After all, we’ve certainly enjoyed some really low-cost meals in the past. Why should we treat this one any differently?

We were torn on how we should cook this. On one hand, the two-minute microwave time is extremely tempting. On the other, microwaved French toast just doesn’t sound appetizing to us. So we ended up going with the oven for this little experiment today. (If you want to read the full cooking instructions for both methods, you can scroll down to the bottom of this review and take a gander at our package scans.)

As you can see in the image above, this package includes a single piece of French toast, two sausage links, and a little bit of syrup. It’s hardly what we’d call a hearty breakfast, but it’s not nothing.

When cooked in the oven, the French toast portion comes out nice and crispy around the edges. Even then, it’s a little mushy in the middle — we can’t imagine how this would turn out in the microwave, but we’re going to guess soggy as all get-out.

The flavor is muted, but there is a little bit of sweetness buried in there somewhere. There’s actually no cinnamon in this French toast — at least, we couldn’t find it listed in the ingredients. But there’s a little dab of maple syrup included here to really sweeten up the deal. We have no complaints about the syrup, and the portion size seems to be pretty much perfect so you can dab both your toast and sausage in it. You won’t be able to absolutely soak these suckers, but you should have enough syrup for a fairly decent syrup-covered meal.

The sausage here is actually a pork and turkey blend, and we found it to be quite good. It ends up being nice and moist, even when cooked in the oven, and the flavor has that sausage “snap” to it. We were surprised by how good this portion of the meal is.

Altogether, this meal contains 300 calories and 670 mg of sodium. Both of those numbers are below average for a frozen meal, but keep in mind that this one is pretty small. In fact, before you even open this, you’ll notice that the box feels startlingly lightweight. There’s not a lot of food here, folks.

The Banquet Brown ‘N Serve French Toast Breakfast is actually pretty good if you cook it in the oven. We didn’t experiment with the microwave for this, but we can only imagine that it doesn’t do so well when cooked that way. Still, if you’ve got two bucks and 20 minutes, this really isn’t a bad breakfast.
