It’s said that breakfast is the most important meal of the day, and that a good breakfast helps get people off on the right foot in the morning. But you wouldn’t know it from the glut of increasingly bizarre breakfast creations being sold to people as the perfect way to kick start their day. While doctors recommend a light breakfast of whole grains, yogurt and skim milk, restaurants and frozen food companies across the land are peddling ever growing piles of food that are sure to clog arteries and induce heart attacks. When it comes to breakfast, it seems that bigger is always better. Here are 10 truly bizarre breakfast creations you won’t believe exist.
10. Pancake and Sausage on a Stick
For busy people on the go who still want a hearty breakfast, there is the Jimmy Dean Pancake and Sausage on a Stick. Like a corn dog or Pogo only with a Jimmy Dean sausage at the centre and a pancake wrapped around it, this creation can be found in the frozen food section of the grocery store, comes in packs of 12, and is microwavable. The perfect thing for parents to eat in the car as they commute to work, or for kids to munch on at the bus stop in the morning. The only question is how messy will things get when you pour syrup on this thing?
9. The Pop-Tart Ice Cream Sandwich
If a toasted Pop-Tart isn’t sweet enough for you, trying throwing some ice cream in-between two Pop-Tarts and eating it like an ice cream sandwich. That’s what a growing number of people who need a sugar rush in the morning are doing, and many people who try this breakfast delicacy love it. It comes from the Pop-Tart recipe book and is one of many interesting things people can do with Pop-Tarts. There are also Pop-Tart BLTs and Pop-Tart Sushi. And let’s not forget French Canadian pizza—a Pop-Tart with ketchup on it. Mmmmm breakfast and Pop-Tarts.
8. Waffle Breakfast Sandwich
Why use bread to make a breakfast sandwich when you can use waffles? White Castle offers a waffle breakfast sandwich that features an egg, sausage or bacon, and cheese sandwiched between two waffles. People just pick up the darn thing and eat it all. No crust to leave behind on the plate or nothin’. Again, it may get messy with syrup poured on top, but, hey, if you’re picking up a sandwich made out of waffles and eating it, chances are the last thing you’re worried about is sticky fingers, right?
7. The Waffle Taco
While we’re on the topic of waffles, how about Taco Bell’s scrumptious Waffle Taco. Just like the breakfast sandwich, this delicacy has a sausage patty and scrambled eggs that are served on a waffle that can be bent and picked up like a regular taco. Plus it comes with a pack of syrup. Really, how can you go wrong? Just don’t try and eat it in the car, one-handed, while driving. That could get real messy real fast.
6. Nutella French Toast Roll-Ups
This is the breakfast dish that fans of the Nutella chocolate spread have been screaming for. You take French toast, slather it in Nutella and then roll it up like a crepe and eat it with your bare hands. Not only do you get to enjoy delicious French toast, but you also get a major rush from the Nutella chocolate spread. And, there are no utensils to wash afterwards. Speaking of which, why are so many of these breakfast dishes eaten with bare hands? Shouldn’t utensils be required for some or all of them?
5. Glazed Donut Breakfast Sandwich
You love a good glazed donut. You also love a breakfast sandwich. How can you possibly choose between the two—especially early in the morning when you haven’t had your coffee yet? Well, thanks to Dunkin’ Donuts, you never have to choose between a donut and a breakfast sandwich again. The restaurant chain offers the Glazed Donut Breakfast Sandwich, a gooey creation that has a fired egg, bacon and cheese sandwiched between a glazed donut. Sweet, hot and greasy all at the same time. Awesome! Goes great with a side order of tater tots and a large black coffee. Everything a person needs to have a heart attack first thing in the morning.
4. The Double Loaded Omelet Biscuit
Leave it to Carl’s Jr. to answer the question: How much egg can be crammed into a biscuit? The answer: A LOT! This bad boy breakfast sandwich features two large omelets loaded with sausage, diced ham and chopped bacon folded in half, stuffed between a biscuit and covered in melted cheddar and Jack cheese. And it’s only 820 calories, or about half the calories a grown woman needs to consume each and every day. If this gargantuan sandwich doesn’t get you going in the morning, it’s probably because it’s killed you.
3. Tater Tot Breakfast Pizza
If you love eating cold pizza for breakfast (and who doesn’t), then we recommend you try the Tater Tot Breakfast Pizza. This little online recipe that went viral a few years back features over easy eggs and tater tots on a pizza shell with the egg yolk serving as the pizza sauce. Add some raw onions and peppers to make this a truly unique creation. Great for serving to groups of friends and family when hosting brunch on the weekend, or to eat alone depending on your mood. Note though that the Tater Tot Breakfast Pizza does not keep as well in the fridge over night as regular pizza. The yolk tends to go bad pretty darn quick.
2. French Toast Grilled Cheese
Perfect for serving at breakfast or lunch, the French toast grilled cheese is for people who can always find an occasion to eat a delicious grilled cheese sandwich. And who says you can’t have a grilled cheese at breakfast? This dish involves melted cheese between two pieces of French toast. Grilled cheese aficionados add a fried eggs on top to give the sandwich extra character. But make no mistake, this breakfast treat is fine as a simple grilled cheese. The only question is: Do you eat it with ketchup, syrup or both?
The Bacon Burrito
The bacon burrito represents breakfast distilled to its very essence. People who enjoy this creation claim that eating it is to have breakfast in its purest form. And this is one item people can make at home, on their own. It involves taking an omelet loaded with all your breakfast favorites—sausage, onions, peppers, cheese, bacon—and then wrapping it in a dozen strips of bacon. No burrito shell required. Just bacon, baby. Stick some tooth picks in it to prevent the whole thing from flying apart and enjoy. From the grill to your mouth to heaven in a matter of minutes. Don’t think about the fact that it’s more than 1,000 calories per bite, and just enjoy the pure bacon of it all. After all, is there really such thing as too much bacon? Never!
