When I put the Jack in the Box Grande Sausage Breakfast Burrito on the table, I said out loud, “Holy crap! It’s as large as my forearm.”
Then I thought, “Holy crap! Do I have small forearms? Do I have weak forearms? Are my small forearms the reason why I could never win at arm wrestling? Why is this pen so heavy?”
After I stopped being self-conscious, I peeled back the foil the burrito was wrapped in and then I peeled back the flour tortilla to reveal the burrito’s sausage, scrambled eggs, hash browns, bacon crumbles, shredded pepper jack cheese, cheddar cheese sauce, and creamy sriracha sauce.
The burrito also comes with a container of fire roasted salsa. But if you decide to spend your hard earned money on a Jack in the Box Grande Sausage Breakfast Burrito, grab that container of salsa, throw it as far as you can, yell, “Suck it, salsa! Your services are not needed at this time!”, and then get ticketed for littering.
This breakfast burrito doesn’t need the chunky condiment thanks to the sriracha sauce, which has a mild garlicky and chili pepper flavor. If you do use the salsa, you’ll find it chompblocks the sriracha’s flavor. While the sriracha has a lot of flavor, it doesn’t have much heat. So if you’re a fan of spicy sriracha, you’ll be one sad rooster.
You’ll also be one sad piggie if you were hoping the bacon crumbles would have your mouth bursting with salty, greasy, and porky goodness. They don’t, but the sausage does.
Oh wait. One more. Sad animal.
You’ll also be one sad cow if you were hoping the shredded pepper jack would bring a little heat and peppery flavor. It doesn’t. The cheddar cheese sauce definitely dominates the other cheese.
The scrambled eggs didn’t really stand out, flavor-wise, which I expected. But my burrito came with a good serving of it, which helped the burrito look as large as my weak forearms.
Being wrapped in a flour tortilla with sauces and warm proteins and then all that being wrapped in a foil wrapper, I expected the hash browns to be soggy from sitting in that saucy sauna. But they still had a bit of crispness to them as I ate my way through the burrito.
Although the bacon and pepper jack cheese don’t add much to the Jack in the Box Grande Sausage Breakfast Burrito, the sausage, sriracha, eggs, cheddar cheese sauce, and hash browns more than make up for them. The breakfast burrito has a lot of flavor and a variety of textures, and, overall, it makes me one happy human with small forearms.

Pros: Makes my forearms look small. Creamy sriracha sauce has enough flavor that the included salsa is unnecessary. Hash browns are still a little crispy. Sausage provides all the salty, greasy, and porky goodness.
Cons: Makes my forearms look small. Bacon crumbles and pepper jack cheese don’t add much. Sriracha lacks heat. Sad animals.
*Because I live on a rock in the middle of the Pacific Ocean, things are a bit pricier here. You’ll probably pay less than I did.

Yeah, that was very much my impression, too, right down to forgetting the salsa. I think it’s the first fast-food introduction lately where I’ve gone back and had a second one due to the satisfying combination of glompiness and mild heat. (There are a couple Carl’s Jr items I like a little better, but not enough to make the trek, while JitB is right down the block.)
Even though there’s already a ton if sodium, it sounds like it could benefit from a simple shake of salt and pepper. I’ve noticed when ordering the Breakfast Platter that the scrambled eggs aren’t seasoned. Jack does still have those little tiny packets of salt and pepper, although they’re not the cool ones with the two little tubes that you snap open.
Yeah the ones with the two little tubes are the epitome of the fast food spice packaging category, there’s something deeply satisfying about the snap.
yes, because only America has fast food and obesity issues, right? That’s why McDonald’s operates in nearly 120 countries around the globe, burger kind operates in 73, and where these typical establishments aren’t, there is always another unhealthy alternative. It’s not an American tendency; some people just don’t know how to control themselves.
That said, stuff like this massive burrito is fine in strict moderation, like most things.
Go eat it and stfu weirdos weather ur skinny or big, ‘”smaller folks have massive health issues also” ppl have an tendency to belive what’s thrown around ole ur big then u have health issues I’m 5’5 220 and zero health issues so let’s keep it really real u skinny f–£$ are unhealthy mabey even more due to no meat on ur shinny bones grow up indulge and enjoy while bring safe
I was in the mood for something breakfasty with coffee. But the burrito was awful! I tried to pick it up and it fell apart. I ended up eating what I could with a fork. Just a last minute buy with a last time try.
