With news out last week about the brand new Impossible based breakfast items at Burger King – we had to dig in ASAP. We had no problem scooping up both the Impossible Croissan’wich and Impossible Biscuit on our first visit to our local BK.
First up, it’s worth noting if you’re vegan – this is not! The items are cooked on the same kitchen appliances as regular meat based items plus there’s also dairy based egg and cheese too.
The Impossible Biscuit is a stout little guy as you can see below, the Impossible sausage patty sneaks out from the biscuit in all directions:
It makes this feel much more generous than the typical hockey puck breakfast sausages at fast food places. The egg and cheese are run of the mill affairs as you might expect.
The biscuit is unassuming star here. Buttery, hearty, not too crumbly. It adds a lot of textural interest to this sandwich, so much so, we prefer this 10X more than the Impossible Croissan’wich which is all soft and saggy texture.
But what about the Impossible sausage you ask? Well…we’re blown away. So much so we’re not even sure we got a real sausage by accident. The texture is remarkably meaty, with lots of chew and tear and bite. There’s noticeably less greasy ooze than pork based sausage, which was our single real tell this probably plant based. We actually preferred the slightly less messy affair truth be told.
The Impossible sausage taste is just impeccable. Honestly, give this to someone without telling them and they’d gulp it right down unawares. There’s some herby notes like rosemary that you’ll be instantly familiar with in a breakfast sausage patty – plus a healthy amount of black pepper kick than hits you a few moments afterwards.
All in all this was a knockout breakfast sandwich, it really wowed us. We paid $4.49 for this Impossible Biscuit – and we will do many times again…
