Tim Hortons' Breakfast Sandwich

On Sunday morning, I finally made it to Tim Hortons to try their new hot breakfast sandwich, which I haven't stopped talking about since seeing the advertisement (it appears that they allow their Canadian customers to have their sleep and eat too, offering the sandwich until noon on weekends but only until 11am in the States).

I have always been a fan of the Sausage McMuffin at McDonald's, but if I had to compare English muffins with biscuits as a base, the latter would win every time. For this reason, Tim's sausage sandwich is my clear favorite. It is marginally bigger than the McDonald's version (with 60 more calories), but at $2.49 plus tax, it's fairly pricey; for that amount you could almost buy an entire meal at McDonalds. Still, it would be well worth the occasional "splurge" when you're craving a cheesy, egg-tastic treat to start out your day.

For the record, my dining companion consumed both the sausage and bacon versions, and claimed he felt "sick" afterwards. Weak.

Understand that I never intended on taking a photo that seems to undercut the appeal of the sandwich...

Which one has 60 more calories? It's not clear from your post.

I agree, your "dining companion" is clearly weak. Pathetically weak!

The "it" in that sentence refers to the Tim Hortons' sandwich (which is larger; hence the increase in calories). But thanks for checking!
