Starbucks Launches Impossible Breakfast Sandwich

Impossible Foods has joined yet another fast-food chain by beefing up (apologies for the pun) Starbucks’ breakfast lineup with a new meatless sandwich. The new sandwich features one of Impossible’s newest proteins: the vegan sausage patty.

The new breakfast option features an Impossible Sausage patty, a fried egg, and aged cheddar cheese sandwiched between Ciabatta bread.

It should be noted though, that while the patty is entirely plant-based the sandwich itself is far from it with the egg and cheese rounding it out.

Still, if you’re trying to go for something meatless in your morning commute, this a pretty solid option especially if you’re looking for something more on the savory side of breakfast.

A ‘Beyond Sausage’ Egg and Cheese Is Dunkin’s Latest Addition to Their Revitalized Menu

The plant-based protein takeover continues. 

Dunkin’ Brands Group Inc. announced this morning that, starting today, July 24th, a breakfast sandwich with Beyond Meat Inc.’s plant-based protein will be available in all of their Manhattan locations.

The new item is a version of the classic sausage, egg, and cheese with a plant-based sausage patty. They throw their hat into the ring of fast food joints using Beyond’s plant-based protein, along with Tim Horton’s, Del Taco, and Carl’s Jr.

It’ll be sold for $4.29, about the running price of a normal breakfast sandwich at Dunkin’. Each franchise can set their own price, but if that’s the price of it in one of the most expensive places to live on Earth then it shouldn’t be too much of a problem when the sandwich goes nationwide. 

When that will actually be is a mystery, though. Dunkin’s representative said that the company plans to bring the sandwich to every location soon, but they’re not sure exactly when. 

The question is, as it is with all plant-based products, does it taste like the real thing? Luckily, fellow Foodbeast Reach Guinto got an early taste.

“I would take it over any other sausage sandwich.” he said. “It tastes exactly like the real deal, except it won’t give me a heart attack.”

If you ask me, that’s about as good as it gets — all the health, none of the heart attack. The meat industry is shaking in its boots.

 

Hopefully, soon all health-conscious Foodbeasts (if I eat plant-based the next morning, it evens out the carne asada fries I had last night, right?) will have a chance to try this plant-based breakfast. Until then, live it up Manhattan.

Burger King’s New Breakfast Sandwiches Use French Toast As The Bun

I consider my day off to a fantastic start if I’m able to work in a breakfast in any capacity during the work week. One of my favorite items in the breakfast world is the humble French Toast. Eggs, bread, a hint of cinnamon, and vanilla come together to create an euphoric union of the two items. Unfortunately, it’s something I always viewed as a weekend treat.

At least until Burger King just dropped their new line of breakfast sandwiches.

The burger chain just released a trio of breakfast sandwiches that take the lauded French Toast and uses them as the bun that binds together the core elements of a breakfast sammie. This includes eggs and Slice, and the customers choice between sausage, bacon, or ham.

We grabbed a couple for the office to see if they live up to the hype I built in my head.

“The hint of sweetness from the maple balanced out the savoriness of the cheese and ham really nicely,” said Foodbeast’s Theresa Tran. “French Toast was plush, but not soggy either.”

She also recommends adding hot sauce to the sandwiches to add that extra layer of depth to them.

Customers will be able to find the new French Toast breakfast sandwiches at participating Burger King locations for a limited time.

While there are excellent brunch favorites like a Classic Eggs Benedict and Buttermilk Fried Chicken & Malted Ale Waffles, it’s the brunch specialties like The Bubba, that has really become a go-to option for everyone stopping by Jimmy’s.

For specs on The Bubba, picture a fluffy biscuit filled with beer-battered fried chicken, then baked with thick slices of cheddar cheese on top, topped crispy bacon, sausage gravy, and crowned with a sunnyside up egg. Still, even something this good can’t last all day. Jimmy’s brunch is from 10:00 a.m – 2:00 p.m. daily, so don’t sleep on The Bubba or any other of Jimmy’s Famous brunch offerings.  

With locations peppered across Southern California, Jimmy’s Famous American Tavern isn’t hard to find, but it might be hard to leave.

Spotted: Cinnamon French Toast Breakfast Sandwich at Carl’s Jr.

carls-jr-french-toast-sandwich

Earlier this week, Carl’s Jr. dropped their new Double Loaded Omelet Biscuit but it seems like the chain is already looking for the next best thing.

In case a savory double omelet stuffed with bacon and cheese isn’t your thing, maybe this Cinnamon French Toast Breakfast Sandwich will satisfy your sweet tooth. Still in a testing phase, the sandwich was spotted at a Carl’s Jr. in Torrance, CA and featured your choice of ham, bacon, or sausage, eggs, cheese, and maple syrup sandwiched between two cinnamon swirl pieces of french toast.

The Cinnamon French Toast Breakfast Sandwich is being featured at a sweet introductory price of $2.99 , we’re hoping this latest breakfast mashup will be tested at more Carl’s Jr. locations soon.

Finally, Bruegger’s Bagels Rolls Out New Sriracha Egg Sandwich

Brueggers-sriracha-bagel

It’s about time someone made this a thing. Bruegger’s Bagels is rolling out with a new summer menu that’s “bold, spicy, sweet and savory.” Among the Morning Glory Bagel and a couple seasonal salads, the new lineup includes the Sriracha Egg Sandwich.

The Sriracha ‘wich features egg, sausage, cheddar cheese, red peppers and everyone’s favorite  cock sauce added for a kick. Just look at how glorious it looks in that perfectly lit photograph. The egg properly keeps its yolky color (take note Mickey D’s) as the cheese drips over the edge of the bagel, passing that peekabo sliver of Sriracha.

You can get this spicy, savory egg sandwich made on any of Bruegger’s 15+ bagel varieties. We recommend trying it on the jalapeno bagel, as it’s only fitting. The Sriracha Egg Sandwich is available at all Bruegger’s Bagel locations until September 10.

Egg White McMuffin, watch out.
