QUICK REVIEW: Lean Cuisine Morning Collection Turkey Sausage English Muffin

Lean Cuisine Morning Collection Turkey Sausage English Muffin

Purchased Price: $3.49
Size: 2 sandwiches/box
Purchased at: Target
Rating: 5 out of 10
Pros: Edible. Not the worst way to start your morning; that would be not having toilet paper. Why does the picture below make me want to play Super Mario Land? Low fat. Good source of protein and calcium. Cheese on box front image is a realistic representation of what cheese really looks like after being microwaved.
Cons: Not the most flavorful way to start your morning. Heating instruction are a slight pain (wrap in paper towel, 30% power for 90 seconds, flip over, heat on high for 60 seconds); can’t set it and forget it. One side of the English muffin gets a bit hard after being nuked (although it does also happen with other frozen English muffin breakfast sandwiches). Yes, just one side. The other side is fine. Egg whites have no flavor; could’ve used a little butter flavor. Turkey sausage wasn’t seasoned very well.

  1. I tried the canadian bacon one, but wasn’t too impressed. The english muffin doesn’t come out well microwaved, and the egg whites are blah. The Marie Callendar breakfast sandwiches are the only way to go, although they’re not exactly “lean”.

  2. I tried the Canadian Bacon morning sandwich and found the muffin to be way too chewy, most likely due to having been microwaved. Instructions advise NOT to heat in an oven which is my preferred way.

  3. I tried these and they were pretty good but I found the veggie ones to be so much better. The egg whites are more flavorful!

  4. I fell for it too……..tasted like rubberized jello. So for the second one, I removed the gross egg white and replaced it with a scrambled egg – 78 calories…….sheesh.

  5. Salty, but quite good except for the cheese (nearly 30% of RDA of salt per sandwich).

    Don’t microwave. Thaw in fridge, separate into two halves, get rid of Velveeta-like cheese substance, toaster oven for 10 min @ 350, add slice of REAL cheese, bake for 1 min more, enjoy.
