Burger King testing out plant-based breakfast sandwich

Burger King’s meatless Impossible Whopper is a big success for the restaurant -- and now it’s targeting the first meal of the day.

The chain will test a meatless breakfast sandwich in five markets later this month.

The Impossible Croissan’wich has eggs and cheese on a croissant coupled with a plant-based sausage patty from Impossible Foods.

Burger King says meatless menu options have been key to bringing in younger customers.

The Impossible Croissan’wich will only be available for a limited time -- but if it does as well as the Impossible Whopper, you can likely expect a nation-wide roll-out.

Dunkin’ began offering a similar meatless breakfast option in November with a sausage patty made by Beyond Meat.
