Tesco Egg & Bacon Sandwich Review

This Tesco egg and bacon sandwich consists of sweet cure bacon with a sliced hard boiled egg and dressed with a light spread of mayo in a medium cut malted brown bread.

Well combining two of the most common fillers, rarely are these ingredients presented in this way. It’s either just bacon or an egg mayo sandwich – but never together.



And well it seems quite a basic sandwich, it is an enjoyable one. Not to filling with little ingredients, but it does have some bulk and very flavourful.

Serving sliced hard boiled egg this way does provide a new perspective and a new taste from egg mayonnaise, well the sweetness comes through from the salty sweet cure bacon.

However, take a closer look at the images below, you’ll notice there’s next to nothing when it comes to ingredients in this sandwich. And well probably a way to cut corners, actually it is a good balance between to little and to much.

Overall, a tasty egg bacon sandwich needing more mayo and perhaps a little more sliced egg and an extra rasher of bacon – if only to get more value for your money at £2.20.
