In their never-ending assault on using everything except taco shells as taco shells, Taco Bell has recently unveiled its latest culinary monstrosity --The Naked Breakfast Taco. The fast food breakfast wars have become more heated every week with every chain under the sun announcing some crazy version of breakfast, like Del Taco's Huevos Rancheros burrito heavier than a newborn baby. Taco Bell, though, is slimming down.
Not content with its previous attempts to unmake tacos with waffle, biscuit, croissant and fried chicken (RIP) shells, Taco Bell's latest creation is made with a shell that is literally a folded fried egg filled with an assortment of breakfast items like potato bites, sausage crumbles or bacon, drizzled with nacho cheese sauce and dusted with shredded cheddar.
@tacobell is changing the breakfast game again!!!! Here's a look at their new test item: the Naked Breakfast Taco! It's got a whole fried egg as a taco shell, which turns this into the BAMF of #breakfasttacos. You can also get it "dressed" with a Gordita shell, no extra charge. Flint, Michigan is gonna be able to get this starting 4/18! More info at the @foodbeast website ?? Oh, they're also working on making a Croissant Burrito happen. So that's cool. #foodbeast #tacobell #nakedbreakfasttaco #eggtaco #croissantburrito
If you're not quite ready to go all in, Taco Bell is also offering a "dressed" version of its Naked Breakfast Taco, with a warm, pillowy gordita flatbread wrapped around the egg.
The Naked Breakfast Taco will hit the breakfast menu of stores in Flint, Michigan -- as if the people of Flint haven't suffered enough -- beginning April 18.
