Earlier this week, Carl’s Jr and Hardees announced their Double Loaded Omelet Biscuit Sandwich which looks absolutely delicious in it’s picture. I knew I had to try it, and all in all, the sandwich is very tasty. At first glance, it is large. Taller than their other biscuit sandwiches, and much gooier. Carl’s Jr uses one of the standard “Made From Scratch” biscuits, but those biscuits cannot hold everything inside, and the omelet contents just sort of ooze out either side.
The sandwich has multiple layers of egg and cheese, but from a cross section view, the meat contents are unbalanced. They are mostly off to one side and around the edge. It would be nice if it is more evenly incorporated into the egg. The sausage is chopped into small pieces, that is the consistency of ground beef. It has a really nice flavor. The ham and bacon are chopped into small pieces as well, and are almost indistinguishable from each other. This is the first Carl’s Jr breakfast sandwich I’ve seen that didn’t have the meat all in one piece, so it does bring a interesting flavor mixed with the egg and cheese.
The biscuit itself isn’t new, but tastes great. It is very fluffy and buttery. The egg and cheese combination is very tasty. By the time I ate mine, the cheese was almost all melted and very gooey. It has just the right flavor, and it wasn’t too salty. Most of the sandwich is the egg and cheese that it really overpowered the meats in flavor. I think a more balanced position of the meat (or more of it) could have made for a better overall flavor.
Also, as this is an omelet, I could have used for a few other ingredients, like chopped up tomato, pepper, or onion, however that might have not fit in with Carl’s Jr’s offering of biscuit sandwiches and turned others off. This sandwich is simple.
Hunger Filling Grade: B+ – The sandwich is very filling. I could have eaten on of these and be set for breakfast.
Value Grade: C – I thought it was a bit more expensive than it should have been, and that might be the reason why I don’t come back to it in the future. I paid $3.49 for it, which was higher than the $2.79 price that was mentioned when it was first being talked about. Maybe my local Carl’s Jr is just more expensive than others, but I don’t think it should be more expensive than the other breakfast sandwiches in their offering.
Bottomline – A little too expensive, but very tasty and filling. The egg and cheese are the heros in this sandwich, with the bacon, ham, and sausage not doing a ton for overall flavor (but adding a really nice texture). I could have used some extra ingredients, but I can’t really complain. Overall, it is a great addition to Carl’s Jr’s breakfast offering.
