Earlier this morning, I headed over to Carl’s Jr to try their Grilled Pork Chop Biscuit sandwich that recently was introduced. I am a big fan already of breakfast items from Carl’s Jr, as you can read my review of the Double Loaded Omelet Biscuit here.
I was a little apprehensive going in because a pork chop seems strange for breakfast, as well as having one alongside egg and cheese.
The Grilled Pork Chop Biscuit sandwich comes in two varieties, the version with egg and cheese, and the version without.
I paid $3.49 for the Egg and Cheese Grilled Pork Chop Biscuit, while the other version would have cost $2.99.

At first glance, the Grilled Pork Chop Biscuit sandwich looks amazing. For some reason, I love the look of melted cheese oozing out of the biscuit and sticking to the wrapper. This sandwich is about the same size as all of their other sandwiches, with the same flavor profile (which I love).
The biscuit itself was warm and buttery and always delicious. The slice of American melts over the entire sandwich. It is hard not to get your fingers sticky with the oozing cheese. The egg is nice and fluffy, but definitely gets lost between the pork chop and the cheese. There are just so many flavors working where the egg doesn’t quite stand out.
The pork chop itself has a nice seasoning around the edges, and is very nicely cooked. It is soft and tender and fortunately without any bones. The pork chop is about twice as thick as the slices of ham used on other Carl’s Jr sandwiches and comes apart really easily. If you eat the pork chop by itself, it tastes very similar to something I might have during a formal Sunday dinner. I think Carl’s Jr is probably roasting a while pork loin and then slicing these pieces for the sandwich.

Overall, the pork chop really helped balance the flavors in the egg and cheese. Normally I wouldn’t think it would work, and be much more chewy, however I think Carl’s Jr has a winner with the Grilled Pork Chop Biscuit. The whole thing was really tasty. I do have some concerns about the price, but I think the sandwich was filling enough as a standalone breakfast item (although I would have been more comfortable paying around $2.75).
All in all, I might need to start adding pork chops to my breakfast meals more often.
