The new BK Breakfast Ciabatta Club Sandwich has so much pork, in the forms of sliced ham and bacon, that if one were to put a white gown on it, a blonde wig on top of it and somehow make it say moi, Kermit the Frog would fall in love with it.
However, the most interesting ingredient found in this breakfast sandwich are the two slices of tomatoes. I don’t know about you, but it feels a little weird to be eating vegetables in the morning. I think they do it on a regular basis in some European countries, but I’m too lazy to Google it to see if it’s true. I guess I’m just used to fast food breakfast sandwiches only having filling that was either slaughtered or comes from the poop hole of a chicken.
Along with the ham, bacon and tomatoes, the BK Breakfast Ciabatta Club Sandwich also comes with cheese, a layer of scrambled eggs and a smoky tomato sauce in between a rectangular whole grain ciabatta bun. Wait…tomatoes AND a whole grain bun? Those ingredients almost make it sound kind of healthy and makes me think I won’t need a Zumba workout to burn it off.
Unfortunately, it contains 23 grams of fat and seven grams of saturated fat so I’m still going to need the workout sensation that’s sweeping the nation — Zumba!
The sandwich is a decent size and is as heavy as Burger King’s Sausage, Egg & Cheese Croissan’wich. The slightly stiff crust of the ciabatta bread makes it quite sturdy and helps prevent ingredients from falling out of the sandwich. If only celebrity dress were made out of the same stuff, then maybe The Superficial would have less nip slip photos.
Oh wait, that would be a bad thing.
While the ciabatta bun is nice, what really makes this sandwich are the tomatoes and the sauce. They give the sandwich a nice flavor that compliments well with the ham, cheese, egg and bread. What about the bacon? Well, the typical flavorless BK bacon doesn’t contribute anything, which makes it seem unnecessary, like news anchor banter in between stories. But the ham definitely makes up for the bacon.
Overall, I really enjoyed the BK Breakfast Ciabatta Club Sandwich. It’s not your typical egg, meat, cheese and bread breakfast sandwich, thanks to the addition of something simple — a couple slices of tomatoes. At first, I thought having vegetables for breakfast sounded weird, but now that I think about it, it doesn’t sound too crazy at all since I already eat cereal for dinner.

Pros: Tasty sandwich, thanks to the tomatoes and sauce. Decent amount of ham. Eating cereal for dinner. Sturdy ciabatta bun. Bun made from whole grains. Zumba! Nip slip photos.
Cons: BK Bacon is useless and a poor excuse for bacon. Eating tomatoes in the morning might seem weird. Despite tomatoes and whole grain bun, it has typical fast food nutritional facts. Finding out chickens poop and lay eggs from the same hole.

This looks really good to me, though I’m not really a fan of ham. If this sort of thing ever showed up in Japan, I’d love to eat half of one for breakfast. I don’t think I could manage a whole one.
If they do come to Japan, you could eat half of it for breakfast and the other half for lunch. Or you could give the other half to a Japanese kid and get them hooked on fast food.
This actually sounds pretty good. I do agree with the fact it would be weird to find tomatoes on a breakfast sandwich. However, it does sound delicious. I might have missed it, but did it have any type of spread on it like ketchup, mayo, etc?
Yup, there’s a smoky tomato sauce in there too. It enhances the tomatoes. Thankfully, it wasn’t mayo, because if there’s something that’s weirder to eat in the morning than vegetables, it’s mayo.
Good review, just one thing which is that a tomato is fruit.
Botanically, it is considered a fruit. But I like to follow the Supreme Court decision regarding tomatoes. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nix_v._Hedden
Do you guys not have BLTs for breakfast then? They’re yummy 🙂
We do have BLTs here in the US, but they’re a lunch item. And, yes, they are yummy in my tummy.
Tomatoes are fairly normal on breakfast sandwiches here in Canada.
I really need to visit Canada more often. The only Canadian culture I get is when I watch hockey, when the South Park episode I’m watching features Terrance and Philip, and when I want to get fancy with my words by adding U’s to them.
That looks really good, actually. Might have to try one in the AM this week. Preferably on a day when I go work out as well.
I’ve want to try their new breakfast platters too. Maybe have a head-to-head with the McDonald’s Big Breakfast and then fall into a fast food coma from it.
BK requires me to get out of bed by 10AM…so I generally hit the all-day breakfast sandwich mecca at Jack in the Box.
Time to set the alarm.
I wish more places would offer all-day breakfast. ARE YOU LISTENING, MCDONALD’S? Sometimes I crave a Big Breakfast platter at 3:36 in the afternoon.
Best opening sentence ever.
Muppets always equals win. Just ask YouTube.
Love the site 🙂 This looks pretty tasty!! Just wanted to point out that you put “cereal for breakfast” instead of dinner in your Pros. Keep up the good work!
I love ciabatta bread and I hate Burger King, so this sandwich leaves me feeling conflicted somewhere in between the two. It’s disappointing (though not surprising) to hear that the bacon is flavorless, because bacon makes a good breakfast sandwich that much better. The messy melted cheese also makes me cringe a little, but as long as it tastes good, I guess I wouldn’t mind. I personally think Jack in the Box and even McDonald’s have better breakfast options than BK, but if I happened to be at BK for breakfast, I’d try this — though mostly because of the bread.
