Sonic Drive-In is giving breakfast a jumpstart with two flavorful new limited-time breakfast offerings: the Salsa Verde Breakfast Burrito and the Salsa Verde Breakfast Toaster sandwich. Made with salsa verde and avocado, these distinctly Sonic menu items keep breakfast fresh and can be enjoyed any time of day for a protein-packed meal.

“We are constantly working to create new and innovative offerings for our breakfast menu using ingredients not typically found at quick-service restaurants,” says chef Claes Petersson, vice president of product innovation of Sonic. “The combination of zesty salsa verde and rich, real avocado brings an added layer of depth and dimension to our breakfast burritos and toasters. When you add crispy bacon and fluffy eggs, you’ve got a complete breakfast in a neat package that’s convenient for those on the go.”

The Salsa Verde Breakfast Toaster is made with bacon, salsa verde, eggs, onions, and melted American cheese sandwiched between two slices of Texas Toast. The Salsa Verde Breakfast Burrito is comprised of the same ingredients, as well as melted Cheddar cheese and Sonic Drive-In’s signature Tots, wrapped in a warm flour tortilla.

Named for its green color, salsa verde is a combination of fire-roasted tomatillos, onions, jalapenos, and roasted garlic, lending a slight heat and deep roasted flavor to these breakfast favorites.
