Plant-based proteins are finally making it onto fast food breakfast menus and as a breakfast lover who's unable to eat meat for the next few months, I couldn't be happier to have another morning option that isn't fruit or oatmeal.
After flocks of customer requests to add more diverse protein options to the menu, Starbucks locations throughout Canada will be releasing a Beyond Meat Breakfast Sandwich early next week. Next week, Beyond Meat fans up north will be able to sink their teeth into these meatless breakfast sandwiches.
The Beyond Meat, Cheddar, and Egg Sandwich is made with a 100% plant-based Beyond Breakfast Sausage comprised of ingredients such as soy, peas, brown rice, and gluten. Paired with a fried egg, and a slice of cheddar cheese, the sandwich is loaded between two slices of English Muffin.
While meatless, the new breakfast sandwich isn't truly vegan — as it still contains egg and cheese. The chain, however, says all you have to do is take the egg and cheese off upon ordering to get that full vegan effect.
Look for this new sandwich at all Starbucks locations across Canada beginning March 3.
Full disclosure, I own a share of Beyond Meat.
