If there’s a brand that understands the limits of a tortilla, it’s Taco Bell. Starting in mid-April, the chain will begin testing its Naked Breakfast Taco at Flint, Michigan, locations.

In similar fashion to the early-year creation of the Naked Chicken Chalupa (since dropped from menus), where fried chicken was wrapped around ingredients like a shell, this invention will feature a flattered fried egg with potato bites, sausage or bacon crumbles, nacho cheese, and shredded Cheddar stuffed inside. The item will cost $1.99.

And if customers are turned off by the idea, they can order a “dressed” version wrapped in flatbread.
