Not too long ago, McDonald’s brought back the crispy chicken to its breakfast menus. It looks like the options are expanding for the lauded protein — at least in the testing stages. 

Brand Eating reports that McDonald’s has begun testing a Cripsy Chicken and Bacon Breakfast Sandwich

The new sandwich features the chain’s crispy chicken filet, butter, honey sauce, applewood-smoked bacon, and the customer’s choice of an English Muffin or a biscuit. 

Currently, the sandwiches are available at select McDonald’s locations in Sacramento and Stockton, CA.

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. 

Dunkin’s new Avocado Toast is available now at nationwide locations, along with Grilled Cheese melt and a new selection of spring drinks.

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.

Cinnabon Launches Frozen Breakfast Line Including Chicken Biscuit

When I think of Cinnabon, I think of those mall food stalls that deliver a euphoric dose of cinnamon butter smell particles as I walk past on my way to the movies. While movies aren’t happening any time soon, Cinnabon is hard at work expanding their offerings past concession stands and straight onto your breakfast table. 

The brand just announced its first-ever line of frozen breakfast items that cover both the sweet and savory sides of everyone’s favorite meal.

Six new items are set to drop simultaneously, each with Cinnabon’s own signature style of flavor: Caramel Pecan Ooey-Gooey Rolls, Frosting Filled CinnaPastry, Frosted CinnaSweet Swirls, CinnaBiscuit Chicken Sandwich, Jalapeno Cheddar Sausage Bites, and CheddarRoll Sausage & Egg Sandwich.

The new breakfast line is now available nationwide in the breakfast aisle of your local grocer’s frozen food section. I wonder if I can piece them all together and form some kind of Cinnabon breakfast Megazord. 

Probably shouldn’t.

Burger King Adds New Impossible Foods Breakfast Croissan’wich To Menus

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?
