I just enjoyed a wonderful breakfast on United Airlines…the subject of this week’s Meal of the Week.
Whenever I am on a breakfast flight, I typically order eggs. Eggs are difficult to screw up, tend to be healthier and higher in protein than other options, and also are often quite tasty. But once in awhile I mix it up.
Yesterday, I flew from Newark to Los Angels aboard United’s “Premium Transcontinental Service” in business class. The breakfast menu offered three choices: savory cheese quiche, brioche soufflé with apple, or cereal. The “brioche soufflé” is a essentially French Toast covered in vanilla and berry sauce.
I’ve heard many good things about this dish over the years but never actually tried it. So I did.
And I’m so glad I did. It was so delicious…like the best airline dessert (let’s call it what it is) I’ve EVER had on an airplane. Plus a cinnamon roll on top of it.
Carbs and fat with carbs, fat, more carbs and more fat. I know.
The last time I ordered French Toast on United was in 2013…it happened to be on the same route. Back then, the French Toast was horrible. What a difference five years makes.
I’m guesstimating between 1,500-2,000 calories for this breakfast, but I can assure you…it was worth it.
If you are ever flying United and see this on the menu, order it. You won’t regret it.
