Chick-fil-A testing new breakfast item in select markets, including New Orleans

NEW ORLEANS (NOLA WEEKEND) - Chick-fil-A might soon add a new bold, bite-sized offering to its breakfast menu, but it all depends on your feedback.

The restaurant chain will start testing Chorizo Cheddar Egg Bites on breakfast menus in select markets starting Aug. 22, including locations in New Orleans, Chick-fil-A announced.

Chick-fil-A’s new Chorizo Cheddar Egg Bites are the first new breakfast entrée the chain has created since the Hash Brown Scramble Bowl joined menus nationwide in 2017.

The baked-in-house item is made with whole eggs, Mexican-style chorizo sausage, and a blend of cheddar and Monterey Jack cheeses. Each order includes four egg bites, making them ideal for a meal on-the-go.

“As summer ends and the back-to-school morning routine begins, we wanted to offer our customers a new protein-packed entrée that keeps them satisfied when they’re on-the-go without sacrificing taste,” said Leslie Neslage, director of menu and packaging at Chick-fil-A, Inc. “Our guests are asking for more bite-sized, shareable breakfast options, and we look forward to hearing what they think about our limited-time Chorizo Cheddar Egg Bites test.”

In addition to New Orleans, Chick-fil-A will also test the new item at participating restaurants in Augusta, Georgia; Aiken, South Carolina; Columbus, Ohio; Norfolk and Portsmouth, Virginia and Miami. The company says guest feedback will help determine if the new breakfast bites will be featured on menus nationwide in the future.

Customers can check the Chick-fil-A App® or contact their local restaurant to find out if Chorizo Cheddar Egg Bites are served at a nearby participating location. Guests can place an order for pick-up, dine-in or delivery on the Chick-fil-A App or online.
