Who Wouldn’t Want To Start Their Day With This Breakfast Lasagna?

Immigrant Son Caffé in Ventura, California is no stranger to the viral spotlight. Back in January of 2020, they honored the late and great Kobe Bryant’s tragic death by serving their coffee with images of the Laker great and his daughter, Gianna, as the latté art. The coverage and feedback was tremendous, putting many on to the quaint Ventura cafe.

What may have been overlooked in the fervor of paying the due respects to Bryant, however, is a menu item at Immigrant Son that may be the first of its kind: a breakfast lasagna.

This unique take on lasagna features pasta and frittata serving as the delicious layers, while prosciutto cotto, spinach, a fried egg, and a béchamel marinara join in on the morning festivities. One succinct slice into this carby complex will have your tastebuds feeling at home immediately.

There was a time where you could only find avocado toast on the Sunday menu of restaurants. Looks like those days are long gone, as the ever-popular dish of smeared avocado on bread has hit the fast-food mainstream. 

Dunkin’ has just added a new spring menu, and one of the latest items is a slice of Avocado Toast

The new Dunkin’ Avocado Toast features a creamy avocado spread that’s made with avocado, sea salt, black pepper, and lemon juice. It’s served on a slice of Dunkin’s toasted Sourdough Bread. Finally, it’s topped with an Everything Bagel seasoning that features sesame seeds, poppy seeds, onion, and garlic.

Carl’s Jr. Adds Breakfast-Heavy PRIME RIB Menu To Their Lineup

Prime rib normally isn’t a meat option you would consider at a fast food chain. The only major chains that have had it on the menu in their past are Arby’s, Quiznos, and Boston Market.

Carl’s Jr. has decided to join that list with their own take on the roast meat. That spin involves a heavy blending of prime rib and breakfast foods.

This includes the above Prime Rib Breakfast Burrito, which takes slow cooked prime rib and wraps it up with eggs, salsa, and cheese. At Hardee’s, the sister chain to Carl’s Jr., salsa is not included in the burrito.

The other breakfast offering Carl’s Jr. is putting prime rib on is a breakfast biscuit, which gets Swiss cheese and a fried egg loaded on top. Hardee’s has an identical version on their menu as well.

Outside of the breakfast offerings, Carl’s and Hardee’s are also putting a Prime Rib Thickburger on their menu. Prime rib and a beef patty are joined by caramelized onions and cheddar sauce in this loaded hybrid.

All of the prime rib is cooked sous vide, a method you normally wouldn’t associate with fast food. However, it does ensure a tender and even cooking to an entire cut of beef, and should translate into what Carl’s and Hardee’s are offering.

The entire prime rib menu, including the breakfast options, are available for a limited time.
