Popeyes launches first breakfast menu to rival McDonald's including cajun hash browns | The Sun

POPEYS has launched its first ever breakfast menu to rival McDonald's.

Available from today, the US fried chicken giant has launched a host of savoury and sweet items for fans to kick-start their day with.

All of the items are exclusive to the UK and can be enjoyed from 11am everyday.

Fast food fans can tuck into a Big Cajun Roll for £4.99.

The savoury snack is made up of a sausage patty, Cajun hash brown, egg, smoked streaky bacon and American cheese.

It comes in a brioche bun and is served with Cajun ketchup.


McDonald’s launches huge discount never seen before – but you’ll need to be quick

How do I use the McDonald’s app?

You can make this into a meal by adding hash browns and a drink for £5.99.

Eary birds can also tuck into a egg, cheese, bacon or sausage breakfast muffin and cajun hash browns.

But if you prefer something sweet, then you can also get cinnamon or plain breakfast biscuits, topped with Nutella, honey or jam.

Customers can wash their brekkie down with a mocha shake, a variety of coffees or a Tropicana orange juice.
