Grilled cheese is a staple comfort food, but why save it for lunch? With the introduction of its Grilled Cheese Breakfast Sandwich, Carl's Jr. and Hardee's are making it easy to enjoy this treat even earlier in the day. The breakfast sandwich is prepared on slices of grilled sourdough bread, with a customer's choice of ham, sausage or bacon, as well as an egg and of course, some melty American and Swiss cheeses. The sandwich is available as a standalone item or as part of a combo meal with hashbrowns and a drink.
As far as why the classic breakfast sandwich is being mashed up with grilled cheese, Brad Haley, the chief marketing officer of Carl’s Jr. and Hardee’s says: "Mornings can be full of rude awakenings so we wanted to offer a new menu item that made the daybreak a little easier on people."
