Burger King Is Now Making Breakfast Sandwiches Using French Toast as Bread

The idea is you no longer have to choose between sweet or savory to start your day.

One minute Burger King is looking all healthy with its rollout of a plant-based Impossible Burger Whopper. The next minute it is making breakfast sound more decadent than ever. The fast food joint has introduced a trio of breakfast sandwiches made using French toast instead of a bun or regular bread.

Burger King seems to be positioning the sandwiches, now available nationwide, for the indecisive (or maybe just the pre-coffee): “sweet or savory breakfast? we solved the biggest morning question with a sandwich — introducing the new French Toast Sandwich,” BK said on Facebook.

The Sausage, Egg & Cheese French Toast sandwich (“Savory seasoned sausage, fluffy eggs, and creamy American cheese … between two sweet, golden brown, and piping hot French Toast slices”) clocks in at 510 calories, with 32 grams of fat, 12 grams of saturated fat, .05 grams of trans fat, and 310 milligrams of cholesterol, 1,230 milligrams of sodium, 30 grams of carbohydrates and 2 grams of fiber, 10 grams of sugar and 25 grams of protein.

The Bacon, Egg & Cheese French Toast sandwich (“Thick cut naturally smoked bacon, fluffy eggs, and creamy American cheese … between two sweet, golden brown, and piping hot French Toast slices”) is 380 calories, with 20 grams of fat, 8 grams of saturated fat, 0 grams of trans fat, and 280 milligrams of cholesterol, 1,070 milligrams of sodium, 30 grams of carbohydrates, 2 grams of fiber, 10 grams of sugar and 19 grams of protein.

And the Ham, Egg & Cheese French Toast sandwich (“Thin sliced sweet black forest ham, fluffy eggs, and creamy American cheese … between two sweet, golden brown, and piping hot French Toast slices”) is 380 calories, with 18 grams of fat, 7 grams of saturated fat, 0 grams of trans fat, and 290 milligrams of cholesterol, 1,340 milligrams of sodium, 30 grams of carbohydrates, 2 grams of fiber, 11 grams of sugar and 23 grams of protein.

For perspective, Burger King’s Double Croissan’wich with Sausage is 710 calories, its Egg-Normous Burrito is 930 calories and the BK Ultimate Breakfast Platter clocks in at 1,170 calories, so you could definitely start your day logging more calories at Burger King if you tried.

However, those looking to get their French toast on and save their calories for later in the day might want to consider Burger King’s French Toast Sticks. Those are a relatively modest 230 calories. Sweet! (But not savory …)
