Breaking breakfast news: Taco Bell is launching a new menu for the most important meal of the day. After Taco Bell announced its biggest menu expansion in history this morning, pictures of one of the new offerings-the legendary waffle taco-are already trending on Twitter.
First introduced as a test run last August at 100 locations, the waffle taco uses a waffle for the shell, wrapped around eggs, cheese and syrup on top with the choice of sausage or bacon. The restaurant now plans to roll it out in over 5,500 locations starting March 27.

It's been a big day for breakfast, as Taco Bell's announcement comes right on the heels of AP reports of McDonald's considering extending its breakfast menu hours. It remains to be seen if other fast food chains, like Chipotle, which serves a secret breakfast menu at just two of its locations, will be next.
"After years of the same old thing, we're confident our breakfast will wake up customers' morning routine," said Taco Bell chief marketing officer Chris Brandt in a press release.
