Breakfast popularity is on the rise, with Mintel predicting sales to increase by 22.1% between now and 2017. As more people eat breakfast away from home, chefs and operators need a continuous flow of new menu ideas to attract discerning patrons. According to the National Restaurant Association’s What’s Hot 2014 Culinary Forecast, the top trend in breakfast and brunch menus is ethnically inspired breakfast items.

To help operators meet this growing trend, Butterball Foodservice offers a full line of products that satisfy a variety of breakfast needs. Turkey sausage, bacon, filets, medallions and more give rise to countless menu possibilities. With recipes inspired by cultures all over the world, Butterball Foodservice has several inventive ideas to keep menus fresh, flavorful, and on-trend:

  • Migas with Breakfast Turkey Sausage—This healthy, Tex-Mex staple is made with turkey sausage, sauteed peppers and tortilla strips mixed into scrambled eggs and served with salsa.
  • Turkey Hummus Sandwich—Turkey bacon, red pepper hummus, and hard-boiled egg with tomato and basil make this Mediterranean-inspired treat a hearty favorite, as well as a great on-the-go option.
  • Turkey Breakfast Tacos—Turkey taco filling, scrambled eggs, roasted tomato salsa and Jack cheese folded in a tortilla brings real Southwestern flavor to breakfast menus.

Richie Jenkins, Butterball Foodservice’s Senior Director of Marketing, said, “We pride ourselves on offering quality turkey products to help chefs and operators menu delicious and innovative dishes for all dayparts. With breakfast sales rising, turkey is a versatile protein uniquely suited for creating healthier, on-trend menu offerings.”
