Wendy’s is expanding its breakfast menu with a new square-shaped item, the English Muffin Sandwich which will be available in two varieties.
“Light, fluffy and perfectly pillowy, the new morning additions are topped with a fresh-cracked egg, your choice of oven-baked Applewood Smoked bacon cooked daily (unlike the other guys…) or a savory grilled sausage patty and finished off with melted American cheese,” said Wendy’s in a press release.
It’s no secret that Wendy’s is stepping into McDonald’s breakfast territory with the new sandwich, stating they “knew they could create an English muffin sandwich that was better than anybody else’s.”
“We tested 60 variations of our English Muffin Sandwiches before we landed on these light and fluffy English Muffins made with a touch of honey and topped with a savory buttery spread, fresh cracked eggs and delicious bacon or sausage for the perfect harmony of breakfast flavors,” said John Li, global vice president of culinary innovation for Wendy’s.
The new English Muffin Sandwich will be available at Wendy’s restaurants nationwide beginning Aug. 22 during breakfast hours, which typically end at 10:30 a.m.
