Taco Bell's New Breakfast Menu

tbfirstmeal.jpgI am not a morning person. Because of that, I hardly ever get a chance to eat breakfast. Still, I couldn't help but get excited when I first found out that Taco Bell would be selling breakfast items in my area. So I got up early one morning and drove on over to Taco Bell to see if this would be any good. I ordered the Johnsonville Sausage and Egg Wrap, Steak and Egg Burrito, Hash Browns, and Cinnabon Delights to round out this review.

The sausage and egg wrap looked just like a Crunchwrap, except for the fact that it was almost half the size. The combination of egg, sausage, and cheese is a familiar one, so this item didn't stand out too much. The only difference between this and a standard breakfast sandwich is the use of a grilled tortilla. The hash browns were good, although a bit too greasy and not that filling. It was considerably larger than the hash browns at McDonald's, and tasted just as good if not better.

The highlight of the meal was definitely the Steak and Egg Burrito. The steak was tender and meaty, the eggs tasted better here than in most fast food joints, and it included a spicy sauce that complimented everything nicely. To top it all off, I had the Cinnabon Delights which were basically doughnut holes sprinkled with the same cinnamon and sugar mixture found on the Cinnamon Twists. A healthy dose of cream filling found in the center was arguably the best part. All in all, First Meal doesn't set the bar for breakfast foods any higher, but does an admirable job in introducing some much-needed variety to the Taco Bell formula.
