Burger King just launched a new breakfast item that’s expanding their meatless menu options to a more sustainable alternative. This comes in the form of the Impossible Croissan’wich.

This new Croissan’wich sandwich features a vegan patty made from Impossible Foods’ sausage.

Burger King’s new item boasts eggs, melted American cheese, and a seasoned sausage that’s composed of plant-based Impossible Foods squared away within a flaky croissant vessel.

It should be noted, however, that the sandwich itself is far from vegan. Neither the eggs, nor cheese are plant-based. We’re also pretty sure there’s butter in the croissant as well. Fans have already taken to the chain’s social accounts suggesting an all-vegan version would sell much more.

However, this could be a step towards sustainability within fast food especially when it comes to the scarcity of meat these days.

The Impossible Croissan’wich is available nationwide now at participating Burger King locations. BK is also giving away up to 100,000 free Impossible Croissan’wich sandwiches to any late-night diners through their app to with the minimum of $1 purchase.

Frosted Flakes And Froot Loops Get A First-Ever Cereal Mash-Up

As a kid, have you ever faced the tough decision between eating Frosted Flakes or Froot Loops for your breakfast cereal? Have you ever waited until your mom walked away and ended up just combining the two together? I totally have.

To the delight of my inner child, Kellogg’s has created the first-ever cereal mash-up between Frosted Flakes and Foot Loops.

Taking the colorful loops handcrafted by Toucan Sam and the Frosted Corn Flakes whipped up by Tony the Tiger, this amalgam of iconic breakfast cereals blends together two unique tastes.

Those who have combined the two in their youth will definitely know what this tastes like already, but the purists who can only have one box at a time will surely find some joy in this new experience.

The cereal mashup will be available at participating grocery retailers nationwide for a limited time beginning this June.

Pancake Cereal Is The Hottest Breakfast Trend Since Buttering Toast

 

Pancake Cereal might be one of the most innovative and visually amazing breakfast hacks we’ve seen come across this newsroom. Even better, it’s ridiculously easy to pull off.

The trend has been popping up all over our social feeds lately and, frankly, it’s pretty awesome.

As seen by @TheNaughtyFork‘s video, all you have to do is add pancake batter into tiny little coin shaped circles over a hot skillet. Let one side cook then, taking a spatula, carefully flip your mini pancakes over to evenly cook off the batter. What’s left is a ton of tiny little pancakes you just toss into a bowl with a pat of butter and drown in maple syrup.

Wonder how many folks are attempting this viral sensation while working from home?

IHOP Introduces Massive Breakfast Feasts Delivered To Your Home

As amazing as American breakfasts are every morning, home cooks will attest that they are a HUGE pain to cook at times, especially if you have a large family to feed. Rather than being stuck doing an hours worth of dishes after a relaxing meal, wouldn’t it be easier to order out?

IHOP was wondering the same thing and is now offering a selection of Family Feast Meals that you can order and have delivered straight to your home.

There are four feasts customers can choose from depending on their cravings:

IHOP’s Breakfast Family Feast features 16oz of scrambled eggs, 4 servings of hash browns, 8 bacon strips, 8 sausage links and your choice of 8 pancakes, 8 French toast triangles, or 12 Belgium Waffle triangles.

The Pancake Creations Family Feast with Sausage or Bacon gives you 8 buttermilk pancakes, 4 servings of scrambled eggs and hash browns, 8 pieces of meat, and a choice of two pancake toppings.

There is also a Lunch/Dinner Feast for those looking to step outside the warm comforts of breakfast foods which includes 16 pieces of buttermilk Crispy Chicken Strips with your choice of dipping sauce, a basket of mini churros and icing dipping sauce, and a basket of fries. You can, however, sub out the fry basket for buttermilk pancakes or Belgium waffles if you’re looking for that chicken and waffle action.

Customers can order their Family Feasts for an average price of about $24.99, though prices may vary depending on your location. IHOP is also releasing a new Classic American Breakfast sandwich too, for those looking for a lighter dining choice. All options are available for takeout, delivery, or curbside pickup.

With many of us working from home, one positive thing to note is you can enjoy breakfast at practically any time of the day.

Keeping in this view, Hot Pockets appears top have launched a new frozen breakfast entry that somehow uses pancakes as the crust. Called Pancake Crust Stuffed with Bacon, Egg, & Cheese, the new item essentially replaces the flaky crush of a breakfast Hot Pocket and swaps it with the pillowy, sweet texture of a pancake.

First spotted by CandyHunting, the item is believed to be available at major participating grocery retailers in the frozen food aisles.


Set to launch at select grocery retailers in May 2020, Hot Pockets is also debuting a Biscuit variation of the breakfast pocket as well.

Bruegger’s Bagels Just Launched A Massive Brunch Box That Feeds An Entire Family

My early morning bagel runs have become something I’ve missed terribly since the “Stay At Home” mandate was issued over here in California. Sure, someone more masterful in the kitchen can probably make their own bagels to spread with cream cheese, but let’s not kid ourselves that I’d be one of those individuals. Give me a shop bagel caked in garlic and onion any day of the week.

For those missing their bagel fix, Bruegger’s Bagels is offering a Hot & Ready Brunch Box that will essentially feed an entire family of 6-8 — or a dude like myself who just misses his morning routine for at least a couple meals.

The box includes 6 fresh baked bagels, a tube of cream cheese, 1 Farmhouse Egg Sandwich, 2 Egg, Peppered Bacon & Cheddar Sandwiches, 4 Blueberry Muffins, and 4 Twice Baked Hash Browns.

Yes. That’ll do nicely.

For anyone interested in getting their hands on this delightful Brunch Box, you can find it at any participating Bruegger’s Bagels location for $29.99. If you’re noting looking to leave the house, home delivery is available through DoorDash.

McDonald’s Cuts Menu Items And All-Day Breakfast Due To COVID-19

Thanks to the COVID-19 pandemic, it looks like McDonald’s will be going through a pretty big change in the weeks to come. Fans of the fast food giant may soon find a much more limited menu upon their next visit.

According to Business Insider, an internal document from McDonald’s states that they plan on cutting some menu items in efforts to simplify their nationwide over the next few weeks.

This means you might not see items such as grilled chicken sandwiches, grilled chicken salads, or chicken tenders for a while.

McDonald’s senior Vice President of operations Bill Garrett, told Business Insider that this is to simplify operations in the kitchens and for the McDonald’s crew and create the best experience (in this viral crisis) for customers.

Another big blow to the menu is that McDonald’s All-Day Breakfast will take a, hopefully, temporary step back. Items such as the Sausage Egg and Cheese McMuffin, McGriddles, and Biscuits will only be available once again during breakfast hours.

No word yet on when this will officially take place, but we’re optomistic that once the pandemic ends we’ll see the All-Day Breakfast Menu and slashed items return to the Golden Arches one day. Until then, we bid a sorrowful see you later.

Taco Bell Debuts Three New TOASTED Breakfast Burritos

Taco Bell has carved a lane for themselves in the fast food breakfast game by continually introducing new items to its morning menu since its launch in 2014. Keeping this momentum, The Bell will roll out three new breakfast burritos on March 12: the Cheesy Toasted Breakfast Burrito, the Hash Brown Toasted Breakfast Burrito and the Grande Toasted Breakfast Burrito.

Shown in our newest News Bites, the Cheesy Toasted Breakfast Burrito keeps it true to Taco Bell by using its signature nacho cheese along with a classic combo of egg and sausage, and only costs $1.

The Hash Brown Toasted Breakfast Burrito is carried by an entire hash brown patty inside of it, but also has eggs, a three cheese blend, and your choice of sausage or bacon.

The Grande Toasted Breakfast Burrito is a beast of a burrito. It comes with eggs, a three cheese blend, fresh pico de gallo, potato bites, and your choice of bacon, sausage, or steak — making it one of the most hefty and most satisfying things on the breakfast menu.

Now, Taco Bell has indeed had breakfast burritos before, but this is their first time introducing this toasted burrito lineup. And, realistically, crisping up the tortilla and melting the cheese automatically makes any breakfast burrito 50% better, at the very least. Trust me, this math is tried and true, so I’m here for the toasting.

Like anything at The Bell, what’s actually listed as the ingredients on the menu won’t limit customization. So, naturally, resident Foodbeast Elie Ayrouth got a tip to put the Cinnabon Delights inside the burritos, to which he immediately obliged. Lo and behold, out came three breakfast burritos brimming with those lustfully sweet balls of cinnamon. Don’t ask why, just do it.

If you want to peep what a breakfast burrito looks like with Cinnabon Delights stuffed inside it, or just want to catch a view of the new items, check the video embedded above.
