Trader Joe’s Eggwich Breadless Breakfast Sandwich Review

Trader Joe's Eggwich Breadless Breakfast Sandwich

The Freezer Meal Frenzy crew goes wild for breakfast sandwiches, and in the years we’ve been running this website, we’ve tried some real bangers. So when we spotted the Trader Joe’s Eggwich Breadless Breakfast Sandwich during our latest TJ’s run, we knew right away that we just had to try it.

Now, we should point out right away that we do tend to prefer our breakfast sandwiches breaded rather than breadless. Whether that’s a wrap, an English muffin, or a croissant, we prefer to have something outside of our eggs. With this particular breakfast sandwich, the eggs are the outside of the sandwich, similar to Jimmy Dean’s Egg’wich line. But we are curious to see what this tastes like, so we’re going to try these sandwiches despite our misgivings about the egg-on-the-outside construction.

To cook one of these sandwiches, you’ll need to remove it from the packaging, then wrap it in a moist paper towel. You’ll want to stick it in the microwave for about a minute, then flip it over and nuke it for another minute (the package actually says 50 seconds, but we went with a full minute on each side).

Now, even though we’d rather have our egg on the inside of the sandwich, the egg patties here are nice and fluffy, with a pretty good texture. It ends up moist to the touch, which makes us hesitant to eat one of these with our fingers, like a normal sandwich. But you can always grab a fork if you’d like to!

The sausage patty is good enough. We’ve definitely had more flavorful breakfast sausage in our years of reviewing this stuff, but this patty does its job. And it’s covered in a melty American cheese, which actually does have a lot of flavor, so the whole package comes together nicely.

Now, if we’re comparing this against the Jimmy Dean version, we’d have to acknowledge that Jimmy Dean has much better sausage, while the egg portion of TJ’s sandwich is far superior. We’d love to try a JD sausage patty stuffed between two of TJ’s egg patties, because that would probably be the perfect eggwich.

There are two sandwiches in a box, but TJ’s recommends a single sandwich as a serving rather than gulping down the whole box in a sitting. If you stick with that recommendation, you’ll be consuming 190 calories and 610 mg of sodium. If you eat both in a sitting, you’re up to 370 calories and 1,220 mg of sodium. It’s important to note that these sandwiches are pretty small, so they’re not very filling. Eating two in a sitting is certainly not an unreasonable thing to do.

The Trader Joe’s Eggwich Breadless Breakfast Sandwich is pretty alright for a breadless sandwich option. We personally would rather have had all of the contents of these sandwiches smooshed between two pieces of bagel or English muffin, but as is, this is a halfway decent breakfast item to go with a cup of coffee and maybe a side of fruit.
