Review: Pillsbury Grands Biscuit Breakfast Sandwiches

Last week, my wife was at one of our local stores and ended up in the freezer section looking for breakfast. While there, she came across a couple new products from Pillsbury and bought a couple of them for us to try over the weekend. One of these products was Pillsbury Grands Biscuit Sandwiches.

When I first saw these, I thought they looked interesting but I also had some doubts because I have yet to find a decent frozen breakfast sandwich. However, prior to trying these, we ended up trying another product from Pillsbury (their egg scramble) and I was very impressed with it. So, when we made these for breakfast the next day, I was actually expecting a lot more from them.

Unfortunately, while not terrible, they did prove to be a bit of a disappointment as well.

There were some things I liked about this product. First, much like the Pillsbury Egg Scramble I tried the day before, the eggs (along with the cheese, ham, peppers and onion that were mixed with them) weren’t too terrible and tasted pretty fresh considering this was a frozen product.

The sandwiches were also very filling. There were two in the box and my wife and I each had one. I had doubts about this at first because they were somewhat small in size. But, I wasn’t hungry after eating mine.

I also thought this product was easy enough to make. All we had to do was pop the sandwiches in the microwave and they were done in a matter of a couple minutes (and part of that was getting them out of the packaging).

However, even though I liked the egg, bacon, etc. I, ironically, wasn’t a huge fan of the biscuit portion of the sandwich. This part didn’t come out as well as I was expecting it to and it was both soggy from the microwave and didn’t taste quite as fresh as a fresh baked biscuit might. At first, I thought maybe this was just me (I’m not a huge biscuit fan to begin with) but my wife shared my opinion.

Overall, I would give the sandwiches a passing grade. Other than the biscuit part, they were decent tasting and were very filling. And, I would recommend them as a result of that (and the convenience). However, if you do buy them, I would suggest only doing so if they are a reasonable price because, while they are OK, they aren’t good enough to justify spending a fortune on them.
