It seems like every time I walk in or drive through a Jack in the Box, there are signs touting a new menu item. The newest additions to the Jack in the Box breakfast menu are two new breakfast bowls and a Cinnamon Roll. I went down there today and got one of each. The breakfast bowls ($2.99) come in both "Hearty" and "Denver" varieties. The Hearty breakfast bowl comes with hash brown sticks, scrambled eggs, sausage, bacon and shredded cheese. It is then all covered with a white cheese sauce. The Denver bowl has hash brown strips, scrambled eggs, ham, bell peppers, shredded cheese and white cheese sauce. I ordered the Denver bowl without the bell peppers.

The bowls start with a layer of hash brown sticks on the bottom. The next layer is scrambled eggs that are reminiscent of eggs from a hotel breakfast bar. They then sprinkle on a little bit of meat and cheese and then cover it all with the cheese sauce. The bowls were ok, but nothing spectacular. Without the cheese sauce, they would be really dry. I think I would rather consume less fat and calories by having a Sausage McMuffin and Hash Browns from McDonalds. The cinnamon roll was quite good. It was warm, gooey and very cinnamony. It might also be a little too sweet. Unfortunately, the cinnamon roll gets cold really fast and quickly becomes dry and hard. If you buy this, make sure to eat it right away.
