Fast Food Corner
Burger King is a distant second (or third, if you consider Wendy's) to McDonalds for most things fast-food. However, the King is surprisingly close to the Clown when it comes to breakfast (in my opinion). Their Croissanwich's compete very well against McMuffins, and I prefer their hashbrowns to McDonald's hashbrown thingy. Plus, a couple of their calorie bomb sandwiches are pretty cool (you have to admire a fast-food company that doesn't care about nutrition) - like the "Enormous Omelet Sandwich.
But, I found something on the breakfast menu that is truly light years better than a comparable product at Mickey D's. Burger King has something called the "Breakfast Wrap." Now, I'm not sure if you can get this at every BK, because I'm having a difficult time finding it on their website. Anyway, it basically consists of scrambled eggs, bacon, cheese and a couple of hashbrowns in a wrap. McDonalds has something called the Breakfast Burrito - I guess in theory, it isn't that bad, but I don't like the peppers in the wrap - sometimes simple is better ... and to me, that is especially true when it comes to breakfast.
Plus, this BK Breakfast Wrap is extremely easy to eat whilst driving - a very important item to consider when ordering fast food. Bravo, Burger King, for getting it right with regards to breakfast! As an aside, I didn't try the BK Breakfast shots yet - these are kind of like breakfast "sliders" with your choice of bacon, sausage, or ham to go with the eggs ... obvously, ham is the worst choice.
