The 1/2 pound Breakfast Burrito: The McSkillet

November 27 2007 - 5:15 PM

I was frightened by the news of the 900 calorie Hardee’s breakfast burrito… had something like 60 grams of fat. Holey Schnikie…

While I’m not used to McDonald’s playing catch-up, especially with Hardee’s they sure enough come through in the clutch with the McSkillet breakfast burrito.

It’s got egg, sausage, American cheese, potato, jack cheese, salsa, a veggie selection all wrapped in a flour tortilla. That’s one durable flour tortilla.

The sausage version comes in jeux gonflables at 610 calories nothing close to the 900 that the Hardee’s breakfast-tube sports… The McSkillet has 330 calories from fat, 36 grams of fat… 56% of your daily value and 14 grams of saturated fat.

All this results in 137% of your daily value of cholesterol. What a way to start your day. If you wondered the 60 grams of fat from the Hardee’s option ends up translating into god knows what but I’d speculate that if you’re into Hardee’s you don’t really care.
