We compared two popular eggwiches on the market… and we’ve got a favorite!
We’re seeing more keto options in regular day-to-day mainstream life, and we couldn’t be more thrilled about it! Breakfast meals, specifically, are just one of the keto-friendly options we’ve been seeing. Breakfast sandwiches are some of the simplest and yummiest meals to have, and being keto doesn’t mean you have to give that up.
Eggwiches, aka breakfast egg-based breadless sandwiches, make it convenient and tasty to enjoy a quick keto meal, and today we’re comparing two types of eggwich, one from Red’s and the other from Trader Joe’s.
Whether it’s for an on-the-go breakfast or you’re enjoying it at home, this is a solid option! 🙌
Please note that these eggwiches may be considered dirty keto due to the ingredients. Be sure and check the nutrition info to decide if they are products that would work for your keto lifestyle.
What are the Eggwich price differences?
Trader Joe’s Eggwich Breadless Breakfast Sandwich, 2-pack $4.99
At first glance, you probably notice the price difference of $2, however, two eggwiches come in Trader Joe’s package and only one comes with Red’s, so the Trader Joe’s eggwiches are 50¢ cheaper per sandwich than Red’s.
The sandwiches from both Trader Joe’s and Red’s come with two egg patties, turkey sausage, and American cheese. Yum! 😋
Where can I buy an Eggwich?!
Trader Joe’s eggwich is clearly only available at Trader Joe’s, and, as you may know, Trader Joe’s offers many keto-friendly options. It’s awesome that they now offer an eggwich!

Time for a taste test!
My Hip sidekick Cam has done all of us a favor and tried both Trader Joe’s Eggwich and Red’s eggwich!
Here’s what she said about Trader Joe’s Eggwich:
“The Trader Joe’s sandwich was nice and light. The eggs were super fluffy and the turkey sausage almost tasted like a plant-based sausage.”
And now her feedback on the Red’s Eggwich:
“The Red’s sandwich was very flavorful! Tasted like a homemade breakfast sandwich! The turkey sausage tasted just like a freshly cooked sausage and it was a little bit more filling than the Trader Joe’s sandwich and had more flavor.
Both sandwiches were delicious! Both 190 cal, Red’s sandwich has 17g of protein while Trader Joe’s has 16g!”
My Hip sidekick, Stetson, also tried the Red’s Eggwich, and here’s what he had to say:
“if you are looking for a quick easy breakfast for on the go and trying to maintain keto, this isn’t a bad option. For me, however, I am not a fan of microwaved eggs. But, with that being said, this still wasn’t bad. There was no bad after-taste.
I think it was tasty for someone that doesn’t really do keto. It definitely filled me up! It seemed to cook all the way through for 1 minute and wrapped up in a paper towel. It could be a great on-the-go breakfast.”
According to Cam, although both are delicious, Red’s is our winner!
Be sure to give these a try if you’re a breakfast sandwich lover… well, breadless sandwich lover, of course. 😉
