You now have an excuse (other than a horrible hangover) to eat Chick-Fil-A’s nuggets in the AM. The Southern-based fast food chain has officially rolled out a new breakfast option for on-the-go customers who simply can’t get enough fried chicken. (We definitely consider ourselves part of this targeted demo.)

Meet the Hash Brown Scramble: Served either as a breakfast bowl or a burrito, this dish boasts a delicious blend of hash browns, scrambled eggs, jalapeño salsa, Monterey Jack and cheddar cheeses, and is then topped with a choice of the famous nuggets (sliced) or sausage. It’s essentially a Chipotle Burrito Bowl, but with all of your favorite breakfast menu items. Consider us sold.

“At Chick-fil-A, we understand the importance of breakfast and want to provide a wide range of options to our guests who are looking for a fast and delicious breakfast,” said Amanda Norris, senior director of menu development in a statement. “We’ve definitely seen an increase in popularity for breakfast bowls

The entree joins the less-exciting Egg White Grill, which features grilled chicken on egg whites and a multigrain English muffin. Prices for everything begin at $3.49, which is frankly a steal compared to your kale, spinach, and spirulina smoothie. We’re just not so sure its the healthiest early morning option.

Chick-Fil-A now joins the ranks of restaurants like McDonald’s and Taco Bell, though we’re not entirely sure they’ll be as bold and adventurous as the latter. If you haven’t heard the news, Taco Bell just rolled out a Naked Egg Taco with a fried egg shell. It’s like a breakfast version of last year’s Naked Chicken Chalupa, which boasted a fried chicken shell. Frankly, we’re thoroughly impressed with the ingenuity and can’t wait to get our hands around one (or seven. At only $1.99, such a feat is possible.)
