January 08, 2014 // Franchising.com // OKLAHOMA CITY – SONIC Drive-In (NASDAQ: SONC), the nation’s largest chain of drive-in restaurants, is giving breakfast a jumpstart with two flavorful new limited-time breakfast offerings: the Salsa Verde Breakfast Burrito and the Salsa Verde Breakfast Toaster® sandwich. Made with bold salsa verde and real avocado, these distinctly SONIC menu items keep breakfast fresh and can be enjoyed any time of day for a protein-packed, flavorful meal.
"We are constantly working to create new and innovative offerings for our breakfast menu using ingredients not typically found at quick service restaurants," said Chef Claes Petersson, vice president of product innovation of Sonic. "The combination of zesty salsa verde and rich, real avocado brings an added layer of depth and dimension to our breakfast burritos and toasters. When you add crispy bacon and fluffy eggs, you’ve got a complete breakfast in a neat package that’s convenient for those on the go."
The Salsa Verde Breakfast Toaster is made with crispy bacon, bold salsa verde, fluffy eggs, fresh onions and melted American cheese, sandwiched between two thick slices of Texas Toast. The Salsa Verde Breakfast Burrito is comprised of the same savory, quality ingredients, as well as melted cheddar cheese and Sonic Drive-In’s signature Tots, all wrapped in a warm flour tortilla.
Named for its green color, salsa verde is a tangy combination of fire-roasted tomatillos, onions, jalapenos and roasted garlic, lending a slight heat and deep roasted flavor to these breakfast favorites. Both the toaster and the burrito are finished off with Wholly™ Avocado – all-natural, 100 percent Hass avocado brought to you by the makers of Wholly Guacamole® brand, America's number one selling guacamole.
