Hardee’s Releases Gloriously Fried Bologna & Velveeta Biscuit


It isn’t the salt or the nostalgia or the oil that elevates fried deli meats like spam or bologna from mere lunchbox staples to art form. No, it’s that crust.

New to the Hardee’s line-up is the entirely unhealthy Fried Bologna & Velveeta biscuit, a flaky invention consisting of — as you might expect — Hardee’s delicate made-from-scratch buttermilk biscuit, melted Velveeta, a slice of fried Oscar Mayer, and a folded scrambled egg.

According to Wikipedia, the deep fried bologna sandwich is indigenous to the Midwest, South, and Appalachian region, and fittingly this thing is only available at Hardee’s and not Carl’s Jr. locations. A shame really, because we can think of no better reason to end our summer diets early.

Carl’s Jr. Debuts Spicy Chorizo-Loaded Breakfast Biscuits and Burritos


We at Foodbeast hold these truths to be self-evident: that side salads are depressing, that life is too short to eat bad food, and that when deciding a breakfast protein, one must always choose bacon. Unless one of the other options is chorizo.


The spicy seasoned sausage has slowly but steadily creeped onto chain breakfast menus over the years, and is now available at Carl’s Jr. in both biscuit or burrito form. Sandwiched inside a “Made from Scratch” biscuit, the Chorizo, Egg & Cheese Biscuit offers a chorizo crumble-laden egg patty topped with pepperjack. The Chorizo, Egg & Cheese Burrito, on the other hand, stuffs the chorizo crumbles and scrambled eggs inside a soft flour tortilla, along with shredded cheese, hash browns, and pico de gallo.


As an early morning dessert, Carl’s also recently debuted its new monkey bread-style Cinnamon Pull-Aparts. Which are just pull-aparts for fun of course, because God knows we’re not sharing.

X-Men Themed Burgers from Carl’s Jr. Come Loaded with X-tra Bacon


The upcoming X-Men movie Days of Future Past may not make a lick of sense, but mo’ bacon always does.

In a promotional tie-in similar to last year’ s Superman-themed “Super Bacon Cheeseburger” and 2012’s Spiderman-themed “Amazing Grilled Cheese Bacon Burger,” Carl’s Jr./Hardee’s is now offering another X-TREMELY baconed-out set of sandwiches, in honor of the new X-Men film.

The first is the Western X-tra Bacon Cheeseburger, which comes with four strips of bacon, American cheese, beef patties, barbecue sauce, and o-rings. The other is the X-tra Bacon, Egg & Cheese Biscuit, featuring four slices of bacon, an egg patty, American cheese, and a buttermilk biscuit, for breakfast only.


Presumably, you won’t have to send yourself to the past in order to nab one of these little piggies, but you should probably stop by a Carl’s Jr/Hardee’s ASAP. When in doubt, just remember this little maxim: “If your future self doesn’t come back to stop you, how bad a decision can it be?”
