Trader Joe’s Egg Frittata Review

Subscribe to our food YouTube channel!!

Apparently, frittata roughly means “fried” in Italian. This whole time, though, Trader Joe never mentioned anything about Italy on his packaging. C’mon Trader Joe. Better not tell Paulie that you didn’t give credit where credit where credit was due.

Or your yard might pay for it.

These things get pretty nutritional

There’s a significant chunk of saturated fat in there, but for how low the overall calories are and how high the protein and fat content is, these will give your brain a good charge.

Just glancing at the packaging for these, they kind of look like sausage patties. At least the one with a piece taken out of it does:

Not sure if sausage or egg?

The first bite tasted a little too hard, maybe it was meant to be crispy on the outer crust. Eating through more of it, the Frittata did start to taste better, but, if every outer bite will only taste kinda okay, then that makes the whole experience kinda okay. That being said, the Frittata did hit a home run nutritionally. The other thing was that this was given at least five minutes to cool from the time I took it out of the microwave and STILL it was almost too hot to eat. If it had only cooled for TJ’s recommended one minute, my taste buds would have been blown up worse than that lady’s at McDonald’s:
