Taco Bell is adding to its breakfast menu offerings, according to a press release sent to Daily Meal, and customers will soon be able to grab some Toasted Breakfast Tacos from the fast food chain. The tacos will combine scrambled eggs, melted cheese, and the customer's choice of bacon, sausage, or potatoes inside of a grilled tortilla. The tacos will be sold for $1.49 each for a limited time, and they'll hit restaurants on October 12.
The press release teased that the nationwide launch of the breakfast tacos will be the beginning of "a breakfast campaign," and that more Taco Bell breakfast-related news will be announced on social media on October 17.
Previously, the Bell featured Breakfast A.M. Grilled Tacos: soft tortillas filled with eggs, cheese, and sausage or bacon. Though these featured the same components as the new breakfast tacos, they were comparable to miniature quesadillas, thanks to the grilling aspect. Some also criticized the taco's lack of flavor, and the item eventually disappeared from Taco Bell menus.
Taco Bell Has Offered Breakfast Tacos In The Past
This may be the chain's return to offering breakfast tacos made with tortillas, but previous releases haven't always been so successful. Aside from the A.M. Grilled Tacos, Taco Bell's first breakfast items debuted nationally back in 2014 and featured a breakfast taco variation. The Waffle Taco combined eggs, cheese, and sausage or bacon in a folded waffle, paired with maple syrup to pour on or dip.
A year after the waffle taco's debut in 2015, it was replaced by the biscuit taco, featuring the same fillings, but inside a folded biscuit. The item was criticized for the quality of the biscuits, and it ultimately disappeared from menus by mid-2016.
The fast food chain currently offers a morning-friendly take on the Crunchwrap: scrambled eggs, a hash brown patty, cheese, and the customer's choice of bacon, sausage, or steak, all packed inside a tortilla. Customers can also order a variety of breakfast burritos and quesadillas, as well as a la carte hash browns and Cinnabon delights.
