Eggo and MorningStar Farms — which are both owned by Kellogg’s — are joining forces to release a vegan breakfast sandwich featuring Eggo Liège-style waffles sandwiching Incogmeato Plant-Based Chik’n from MorningStar Farms (via Vegconomist). These waffles are thicker and sturdier than traditional frozen Eggo waffles, making them a great option for an on-the-go breakfast. Each sandwich is packed with 21 grams of protein to start your morning off energized.
The collaboration follows a limited release of a similar sandwich last year, according to VegNews. To celebrate National Waffle Day 2021, winners of a giveaway received a box of Chik’n & Waffles. Though this release was vegetarian-friendly, some criticized the product for not catering to vegans, due to the buttermilk waffles that were used. Well Kellogg’s listened, and the waffles in this new release will make history as the brand’s first vegan waffles. The new chicken and waffles-inspired sandwich will be sold two to a package for $8.49 at grocery stores where MorningStar Farms products are found.
