Best of Flavor 2018
Global breakfast items continue to drive innovation in the morning daypart, with bolder flavor profiles being anchored by comforting traditional ingredients like eggs and potatoes. At Flying Biscuit Café, a Southern-inspired casual chain, this takes shape as a Chorizo Hash—a new menu item that has quickly become a hit.

The hash base is a mixture of the brand’s oven-roasted “moon-dusted” potatoes, red and green peppers, onions, cheddar cheese and chicken chorizo, topped with two over-medium eggs, homemade tomatillo sauce and fresh cilantro.

“The dish has a Southwestern flavor profile with a Flying Biscuit twist, using chicken chorizo versus traditional pork chorizo,” says Brent Fuller, Brand Leader for the concept. The chicken chorizo lends itself well to unique menu-expansion opportunities.

“We plan to use our chicken chorizo in the future with breakfast sandwiches, entrées and bowls,” adds Fuller.
