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.
