Some of my readers asked that I compare the breakfast sandwiches I buy from food trucks and stalls to a more mainstream establishment, such as McDonald’s. I agreed in the name of science, and it’s all good because there happens to be a McDonald’s right on the edge of campus, so the geographical requirement of this Search for the Best Breakfast Sandwich (SBBS) in North Philly is fulfilled.
Points for asking if I wanted ketchup. Loss of points for only one packet.
It was a hot mess and the only part holding it all together was the biscuit.
Look how uneven! Half of the insides were falling out.
Egg tuckage FAIL!
Don’t even get me started. Dry, spongy, microwaved. Egg?
Bacon was eh. Not too tasty. Not too crispy.
But the biscuit saved the sandwich. It was a little flaky, a little greasy, and carried all of the flavor.
Look at the unevenness at the end. Unforgivable. And I could stomach the Whiz if it had been nice and melty. This Whiz was hard and cold.
The biscuit can be addicting. I really love me a McDdonald’s biscuit but the rest of the sandwich was a complete disaster.
