There’s no denying that starting the day off with a hearty breakfast is an absolute must. There’s also no denying that we’ve all skipped breakfast some mornings when we find ourselves in a rush. Wendy’s
On those days, we need a tasty, filling alternative that can set us up for the day ahead without taking up too much time.
The solution is a delicious fast food breakfast. While most fast food joints offer an excellent breakfast, Wendy’s has one of the best breakfast menus out there.
Offering a wide range of croissants, breakfast drinks, sandwiches, and biscuits, Wendy’s has something for everyone.
Today, we want to show you just how much Wendy’s has to offer on its breakfast menu.
The fact you’ve landed here would suggest that this is something you’re keen to know. In this article, you’ll find a list of 17 awesome Wendy’s breakfast items you should try.
If you’re on the lookout for a quick bite to eat or want to try something new for breakfast, make sure you check our list out!
The first Wendy’s breakfast menu food item on this list is the bacon, egg, and cheese sandwich.
This classic Wendy’s breakfast sandwich should be your go-to if you want a super quick, yet filling bite to eat on your way to the office.
If you haven’t already tried this sandwich before, you’re seriously missing out.
Offering simple breakfast perfection, the warm muffin is filled with a freshly cracked and fried free-range egg, creamy cheese, and delicious Applewood smoked bacon.
You’ll find this easy breakfast sandwich in most fast food joints but we firmly believe that Wendy’s is the best, as do many others.
The high-quality ingredients used to make the sandwich makes the sandwich that much better. Better still, this sandwich only contains 375 calories.
If you want the best of the best when treating yourself to a Wendy’s breakfast, you should strongly consider ordering the Breakfast Baconator. The Breakfast Baconator is one of Wendy’s more classic, iconic breakfast sandwiches, and it’s just one of the tempting items from the Wendy’s breakfast menu.
You’ll find it on the regular menu despite the sandwich being an absolute beast. While indulging in this hearty breakfast sandwich, it’s worth checking out Wendy’s 4 for 4 menu for some budget-friendly options.
Helping you start your day off perfectly, this sandwich contains Applewood smoked bacon, American cheese, grilled sausage, a freshly cracked egg, more bacon, more cheese, and finally Wendy’s signature cheese sauce.
There’s no doubt that this sandwich will fill you up for the day ahead.
The only downside to the Breakfast Baconator is that it contains just over 700 calories. That’s quite a lot for a breakfast sandwich.
However, if you know you won’t be eating for a while it’s ideal.
Next up, we have the Wendy’s bacon, egg, and cheese biscuit. This breakfast item is almost identical to the bacon, egg, and cheese sandwich meal we mentioned above.
However, the bacon, egg, and cheese biscuit recipe is a true classic that takes some beating.
Similar to the sandwich option Wendy’s offers, the bacon, egg, and cheese biscuit comes with Applewood smoked bacon, cheese, and a freshly cracked, free-range egg.
The difference between the two is that the biscuit option is served with a buttermilk biscuit instead of a breakfast roll.
In our opinion, the buttermilk biscuit takes this breakfast dish to the next level. The fluffy texture and butteriness of the biscuit combine with other ingredients perfectly to create a delicious comfort food.
You’ll find yourself thinking about this sandwich for the rest of your day.
The next breakfast menu item from Wendy’s that we want to share with you is the honey butter chicken biscuit. This masterpiece is one of the most popular breakfast items on the Wendy’s menu and with good reason.
If you want a tasty breakfast that will never let you down, make this biscuit your go-to Wendy’s food item.
A Southern-style breakfast, the recipe includes a golden crispy chicken fillet seasoned to perfection and topped with a sweet and savory maple honey butter.
The ingredients are then served on one of Wendy’s fluffy, buttery biscuits.
This biscuit alone is enough to get you out of bed in the morning. While the crispy chicken is incredibly tasty, the sauce has to be the highlight of this breakfast biscuit.
Did you know that Wendy’s also sells breakfast croissants? If you didn’t, you do now! The breakfast croissants at Wendy’s give you the chance to try something new at breakfast.
This is perfect for you if you’re bored of eating the same things for breakfast every day.
While all of the breakfast croissants Wendy’s offers are great, the bacon, egg, and Swiss croissant has to be the best.
Containing just 403 calories, this breakfast croissant comes with Applewood smoked bacon, a free-range egg, a creamy cheese sauce, and a delightfully flaky croissant bun.
The combination of savory and sweet flavors and a mix of different textures is sure to help you start the day right.
Next up, we have another one of Wendy’s delicious croissant items. This time we have the maple bacon chicken croissant. As far as unique breakfast recipes go, this is easily one of the most unique.
The maple bacon chicken croissant is unlike any breakfast sandwich you’ve ever tried or will ever try again. As far as we’re aware, you won’t find it in any other fast food restaurants either.
What we love about this breakfast is that it isn’t too different from the honey butter chicken biscuit.
The only real difference between the two is that the maple bacon chicken croissant sandwich uses a flaky croissant instead. It also comes with heaps of Applewood smoked bacon.
Trust us, you’ll love the combination of sweet and salty flavors. Served with a cup of fresh coffee and you’re ready for the day.
We have one more Wendy’s breakfast croissant for you. This one is a sausage, egg, and Swiss croissant. Certain to please, this is one of those breakfast’s that you can’t wait to eat.
You’ll find yourself jumping out of bed as soon as your alarm goes off ready for your hearty breakfast.
Just like the other croissant recipes on this list, the flaky bun is the ideal base for a sandwich. It adds a great texture and divine butteriness.
We find that the spicy flavors of the sausage also go with the croissant really well. The addition of the egg only helps balance the flavors out more, providing us with a hearty, well-flavored breakfast.
Altogether, this breakfast croissant only contains 492 calories.
Sticking with our theme of sausage and egg, the next breakfast menu item on this list is the Wendy’s sausage, egg, and cheese biscuit.
This is a more classic breakfast item that can be found in fast food restaurants all over the United States. However, we have to say, Wendy’s has absolutely perfected its own recipe.
An excellent quick and easy bite to eat, this sandwich comes with a fluffy buttermilk biscuit, egg, cheese, and Wendy’s famous grilled sausage.
Personally, we find the sausage more filling than the bacon in the bacon biscuit. This makes it a good choice for those who have a busy day ahead of them. This sandwich contains just over 600 calories.
It has to be said, Wendy’s makes some pretty impressive breakfast potatoes.
Available in small, medium, and large, Wendy’s uses natural-cut, skin-on potatoes to make the perfect crispy potatoes that will fill you up in the morning.
Seasoned with garlic powder, salt, and cracked black pepper the potatoes are crispy on the outside and smooth and hot on the inside.
You can order Wendy’s seasoned potatoes on their own or add them as a side dish to another breakfast item. You can even create a breakfast combo that includes potatoes, a sandwich, and a drink.
This could be a great option for anyone looking for a treat. The small potatoes contain 263 calories, the medium 380, and the large 475.
If you want something that’s easy to eat on the go, you can’t go wrong with the sausage, egg, and cheese burrito from Wendy’s.
Super compact, convenient, and tasty, your whole breakfast is neatly packed into one burrito.
Perfect for those times you’re running for the train or need a quick bite to eat before a meeting, this burrito stands above any breakfast burrito you’ve ever had.
The spicy sausage, soft, hot, and fluffy scrambled eggs, and melted cheese help create a hearty, extremely filling breakfast that will keep you going throughout the day.
Despite being loaded with ingredients, the burrito isn’t too big either. In fact, Wendy’s has got the sizing perfect.
No breakfast is complete without a fresh beverage. Luckily for us, Wendy’s has a wide range of great beverages to choose from.
While they serve common beverages like Coca-Cola and Sprite, Wendy’s is also known for its Frosty-ccino’s.
Available in small or large, a Frosty-ccino is a coffee-based beverage that has been mixed with Wendy’s chocolate frosty mix. The beverage is then served over ice.
The end result is a stunning iced coffee with a chocolatey flavor. This refreshing beverage is a great mood booster and a solid option during hot summer mornings.
We sometimes head to Wendy’s just for a Frosty-ccino but they also go well with most of Wendy’s breakfast sandwiches and biscuits.
12. Pain Au Chocolat
If you want something super simple, look no further than Wendy’s pain au chocolat. Also known as chocolatine, a pain au chocolat is made from the same layered dough as a croissant.
However, unlike the croissant, a pain au chocolat is full of chocolate. Often served hot so that the chocolate is still rich and gooey, this is a food item that will make you smile.
The best thing about this chocolatey goodness is that they are prepared in advance.
Therefore, you can simply walk into Wendy’s grab a pain au chocolat, and carry on with the rest of your morning.
One pain au chocolat only contains 206 calories too which is a huge bonus. We like to buy our pain au chocolat from Wendys with a coffee.
Another great beverage you can buy from Wendy’s is Cold Brew iced coffee. Slow steeped and then served over ice, there are a lot of things to like about this refreshing beverage. For starters, it tastes awesome.
The rich, bitter, and smooth flavors of the coffee are to die for. They will most definitely help you wake up first thing in the morning.
Secondly, the Cold Brew iced tea is wonderfully refreshing on a hot day. Finally, this beverage contains very few calories.
In fact, a large Cold Brew iced coffee only contains 25 calories. The small only contains 15. You can quite easily have a Cold Brew iced coffee with any food item off this list.
14. Regular Coffee
Okay, so there might not be too much to say about a regular coffee, but if you’re looking for a simple, yet tasty beverage to accompany your breakfast meal or cold journey to work, a regular coffee from Wendy’s is an option that won’t let you down.
Admittedly, most fast food restaurants make good coffee, making it hard to bang on too much about how good the coffee at Wendy’s is.
However, you only have to look at the ingredients used to make a Wendy’s coffee to understand what makes it special.
The regular coffee at Wendy’s is made out of 100% high-quality Arabica beans from central and south America. These beans produce a rich, smooth coffee, full of flavor.
To make things even better, one mug of this hot coffee only contains 5 calories.
15. Oatmeal Bar
A breakfast food item at Wendy’s that we do have a lot to say about is the oatmeal bar. The oatmeal bar at Wendy’s is shockingly overlooked.
This unbelievably tasting food item goes perfectly with any meal that needs a side. It is also the perfect sweet snack for those in a rush. If you simply want a quick bite to eat and a coffee, the oatmeal bar is also perfect.
If you don’t try the oatmeal bar at Wendy’s you’ll regret it massively. The bar is made fresh every day out of whole oats, tart cranberries, and sweet blueberries.
The balance of sweet and tangy flavors is absolutely divine. We consider it the perfect comfort food to start the day and a great source of energy.
The second to last breakfast food item on this list of Wendy’s breakfast items is the sausage gravy and biscuit.
Despite combining two of most people’s favorite Wendy’s breakfast foods, not many people are actually aware that this food exists.
This is something that should change. If you’ve never tried sausage gravy and biscuits before, make sure you give it a try the next time you pay Wendy’s a visit.
The dish combines Wendy’s delicious white, creamy gravy with a fluffy buttermilk biscuit and grilled sausage.
Wendy’s sausage gravy and biscuit tastes great on its own, but it’s also a great side dish that goes well with a variety of other breakfast items.
17. Sausage Biscuit
The final Wendy’s breakfast food item on our list is the sausage biscuit. The sausage biscuit is arguably the best biscuit Wendy’s offers if you’re looking for something simple.
Flavorful, soft, fluffy, and slightly spicy, this biscuit is very underrated. Having said that, it’s probably not the best option if you’re feeling hungry.
If you are feeling hungry, we would recommend ordering the sausage biscuit with a side dish. Seasoned potatoes will do nicely.
The sausage biscuit is also one of the healthier breakfast options at Wendy’s. Thanks to its simplicity, the whole biscuit only contains 470 calories.
Of course, you then need to take the extra sides you choose into consideration.
