Dunkin’ Donuts Bacon, Egg, and Cheese Biscuit

It’s 6 in the morning and you just got in from a cross-country red-eye flight. You are starving, but still have a two-hour layover before your next flight. Time to find some breakfast. The sweet aroma of freshly baked doughnuts calls you into the Dunkin’ Donuts, but you resist the urge for a delicious pastry and settle for something more substantial instead – a bacon, egg, and cheese biscuit. Well, it turns out you probably should have gone with that doughnut after all. At 490 calories, the biscuit is comparable if not worse than most of the doughnuts, and higher in fat and sodium (30 grams and 1300 milligrams respectively), as well as a whopping 205 milligrams of cholesterol. So unless you are willing to consume nearly half of your daily fat intake and more than half of a day’s sodium and cholesterol, grab a bagel instead.
