Burger King has already released a large amount of new items this year (at least 5 off the top of my head), and this month they’ve expanded their menu even further with the addition of the Bacon Gouda Muffin, Bacon Gouda Biscuit, and a new line of Seattle’s Best coffee. The Bacon Gouda Sandwich features fluffy eggs, bacon (or your choice of meat), an herb spread, and a slice of Gouda cheese. I purchased a Bacon Gouda Muffin for $2.49.
How Does it Taste?
The Burger King Bacon Gouda Muffin is one of the more interesting fast food breakfast creations I’ve seen lately. It’s not everyday that you see a fast food item featuring Gouda cheese and an herb spread. I have to give Burger King some innovation points on that, this was pretty unexpected.
The Bacon Gouda Muffin was pretty much delicious. This sandwich was definitely a cut above their usual breakfast offerings. The scrambled egg on this sandwich was light and fluffy, and it was steaming hot (just cooked). There was also no shortage of scrambled eggs – they made up the bulk of this sandwich.
The bacon, while there were only 2 modest sized strips of it on the sandwich, was still a dominant feature of the Bacon Gouda Muffin. Some people prefer a lot of bacon, but I think there was just enough on this sandwich.
The slice of Gouda cheese was a prominent feature of this sandwich. The Gouda by itself has a strong, smokey cheese flavor to it, but on the sandwich it adds the perfect compliment of Gouda to every bite. I was worried that Burger King would wuss out on this aspect of the sandwich, but they really nailed it.
The other part of this sandwich that captivated me was the herb spread they applied to both sides of the muffin. This spread was buttery and had a slight garlic flavor to it. Combined with the Gouda cheese, it provided a flavor you currently can’t find at any other fast food restaurant. I simply loved it.
The Burger King Bacon Gouda Muffin is the best breakfast sandwich I’ve had in a long time. The Gouda cheese and herb spread made for a tasty combination, there were plenty of scrambled eggs on this baby, and it was pretty filling. I normally prefer McDonald’s over Burger King for breakfast, but this sandwich will bring me to Burger King more often in the a.m. now. The Bacon Gouda Muffin gets my recommendation.
Pros: Gouda cheese was a tasty addition, buttery herb spread added a new dimension of flavor, filling, but not terrible nutrition-wise.
Cons: Only 2 pieces of bacon.
