Wendy’s has now entered the breakfast market with over 650 restaurants serving breakfast. They say by the end of 2008, the whole chain should have the new menu. The one thing that I’m most excited about is the new Buttermilk Frescuit with bacon.
I guess since Wendy’s is the home of square burgers, they figured their breakfast sandwich should be square too. I am not sure if this was a good idea. Just like with the new Dunkin’ Donuts sandwich I am not happy with the breading. What the heck is a Frescuit? I long for the days when English muffins were top dog in the breakfast sandwich market.
Let’s take look at what is inside the Bacon Frescuit: bacon (most likely not crispy), scrambled eggs and American cheese on a biscuit. Other places put a fried egg on there sandwiches, but Wendy’s Frescuits are using scrambled eggs gently folded into a square omelet. Again it seems they can’t get a way from this square thing. I think this looks pretty good and I can’t wait to try one. I just hope they cook the bacon crispy.
If you live and the Pittsburgh area and know of a Wendy’s that is serving breakfast let me know. Thanks!
