Every couple of weeks I grab some coffee with a neighbor of mine to catch up on our mutual worlds and we either hit the local Dunkin Donuts, McDonalds or Burger King since each of them offers up a tasty breakfast menu. I’m a big fan of the Sausage and Egg Burrito or the McMuffin (but I don’t indulge in them as much anymore since they don’t work off of me as fast as they used to). Yesterday my friend had coupons for Burger King and they had a brand-new breakfast platter. The price was fantastic from the coupon so why not give it a try. My photo is of the exact item but you cannot really see the cup of coffee that was also a part of the deal.
As you can see, the Burger King “Ultimate Breakfast Platter” has all of this stuff on the plate. There are scrambled eggs, Hash Browns, sausage, a warm baked croissant and three fluffy pancakes drizzled which you can add butter and syrup to. If you think that this sounds like a lot of food well it is. Technically speaking you can assemble the eggs and sausage onto the croissant for ease of eating it all but I didn’t do that with this go round. I do love the hash browns that BK serves up since they remind me of tater tots and are easily dipped into the little ketchup cups. I should point out that there were a few more of them than you see in the photo but I was rather hungry that morning and ate a bunch before I realized that I should snap a photo to use in this foodie blog post. With this order would also be my very first time trying their pancakes and they were very tasty as well.
This can be compared to the McDonald’s “Big Breakfast” but it does seem to give you more for the money. Never a bad thing. From the look of the morning menu, it appears that BK is adventuring into breakfast a little more and offering up some interesting items. There is a giant burrito of some kind but it was not what I had a coupon for and it was pricey without one. This was a proper choice but will leave you full so a little extra walking is encouraged afterward.
