I was running a bit late this morning, and while I had made my lunch the night before, I didn’t make a breakfast.  I knew I had a $1 off coupon for the new flatbread sandwiches and decided to give it a shot. 

First off, I ordered the Turkey sausage flatbread, and when I got to work I realized that they gave me the veggie one.  My only fear is the onion factor.  Whenever anything is veggie, onions always seem to make their way into it!


thankfully no onions, but the ingredient listed mushrooms, which I didn't taste at all

So how was it?  Just okay.  There was a lot more flatbread to egg white ratio, and if I didn’t have my trust Tabasco sauce it would have been really dry.  The veggie comes in at:

  • 280 calories
  • 9 fat
  • 39 carbs
  • 3 fiber
  • 11 protein

So I am thinking that’s pretty good – I don’t think its worth it without the coupon, and obviously this is something I can make at home.  So I go on their website (mainly to see if there is anything in the onion family in the ingredient list!) and this is what I find is in my simple egg white flatbread sammie:

I didn’t know that so many things were needed for a simple breakfast sandwich!   I see no signs of onions, so I have that going for me!
