McDonald’s Is Testing A New ‘Gourmet Breakfast’
Breakfast is — easily — the best thing McDonalds has going for it. Now staples like the Sausage & Egg McMuffin, Hashbrowns, and Hotcakes are being offered 24-hours a day in many McDonalds locations in the United States. Horray! But the fast food chain is now testing a new concept down in Australia that might be a game changer — gourmet breakfast. Finally, Au Bon Pain meets MickeyDs! via:
Gourmet Breakfast, testing in Annerley, a Brisbane suburb in Queensland, is a completely new morning menu, anchored by a “Café Breakfast” platter of toasted sourdough bread, bacon, two chipolata sausage (a small pork sausage) links, scrambled eggs, wilted spinach, grilled tomatoes, a hash brown patty and tomato relish.
McDonald’s Gourmet Breakfast 2Also on the menu are Belgian waffles with yogurt and fruit; a corn fritter platter with avocado, grilled tomatoes, crumbled feta cheese, tomato relish and spinach; a Bacon and Egg Roll (bacon, egg, spinach and tomato relish on a toasted brioche-style bun); and an Avocado Smash platter with toasted sourdough, mashed avocado, crumbled feta, spinach and sliced tomato.
I like this move, strictly because it means you can get something decently healthy (or, at the very least, not greasy) at an airport Mcdonalds before grabbing a flight. I support that.
