REVIEW: Dunkin’ Sourdough Breakfast Sandwich

What is the Dunkin’ Sourdough Breakfast Sandwich

Introduced as part of the winter seasonal menu, the sandwich consists of two eggs, five half-slices of bacon, and white cheddar on sourdough toast. ?

How is it?

I find immense joy in all types of breakfast sandwiches, but with this one, I walked away and found myself saying, “I’m not mad. I’m just disappointed.”

Unwrapping the massive sandwich, I was immediately greeted with a patchy toast pattern outside the sourdough bread. They aren’t toasting the bread and then putting the sandwich together. They assemble it and throw it in an oven to heat, which essentially acts like a broiler: the top is toasted, but the rest isn’t.

Dunkin Sourdough Breakfast Sandwich Eggs

The two eggs give the illusion of freshly cracked eggs, but ultimately fall into the category of “egg-like” discs. The bacon, while plentiful, reminded me of the thin precooked kind you’d get at the store. However, the cheese was a nice change from the normal processed “cheese product” you’d find on most sandwiches. ?

The bread not being toasted evenly and thoroughly really took away from what could have been a fairly successful sandwich. Sourdough, in my opinion, is at its best when toasted. It is very chewy and doesn’t necessarily lend itself to being a good sandwich when it’s untoasted. This leads to uneven bites of bread without the middle ingredients. That said, the bread itself is high quality and has that rich, unmistakable sourdough flavor.

Conclusion:

While I applaud Dunkin’ for taking a big swing, this one didn’t really pay off as well as I had hoped it would. While not the worst, it’s definitely not something I’d get again. It could probably be halfway decent if you get home and throw it in your air fryer or toaster oven. But let’s be real: most of us are just looking for something to shove in our faces between sips of coffee.

    1. Yeah I really had hopes because it sounded like a Panera breakfast sandwich (but cheaper!) and just didn’t work out. Maybe if you have a good relationship with the Dunkin’ employees or go during non-peak times, maybe they’d toast both sides.

  1. I had this and they made it slightly different. Where I got it they put the Sourdough in the toaster they use for the bagels and then used the oven to cook the eggs (I don’t eat bacon) and then put it together. I enjoyed it as a more filling egg sandwich than their croissant sandwiches and give them credit for using real Sourdough bread instead of the fake Sourdough that some fast food places use (I’m looking at you Burger King).

    1. That’s what I expected as far as toasting, but I’m guessing it’s extra steps my store isn’t taking. I don’t necessarily blame them. Often times it sounds good on paper, but the extra min it takes adds up during busy rushes. I did appreciate the bread and actually went out to buy some as a result.

  2. Have not posted in a few years but this one struck home because it was spot on.

    I tried to tell my wife about it, but I just said, “Ok, no great”. I will stick with the Sausage, egg and cheese on a Sesame bagel. Which I do at least twice a week.

    1. I appreciate your comment!
      It was so close to being a great option and it just doesn’t pan out.
      I’ve never thought of ordering your sandwich and might need to try it out for myself.

  3. At least yours was toasted! I tried this a few weeks ago and the bread was fresh with not toasting to be seen. The flavor isn’t terrible but a consistent toasting would help.

    1. So funny story: my first try was also completely untoasted.
      I had to get a second and hope it would be toasted which (as we see) was kind of more toasted, but not really.
      I’m tempted to try a third time, but order in person and ask for it to be toasted twice.
