Morrisons have launched a staggeringly huge breakfast butty for a bargain price

Your scientists were so preoccupied with whether or not they could, they didn’t stop to think if anyone could actually eat this in one sitting

To err is human; to be served ten breakfast items in one bap, divine

Morrisons are no strangers to this game. They brought us beer battered halloumi. They brought us extreme heat cheese. They brought us the foot-long sausage roll. Morrisons know what the fuck is up.

Earlier this year, the supermarket launched the Big Daddy Breakfast, a 19-piece fry up that could be in your face for a very reasonable £6. Now comes another addition to the unnecessarily large breakfast canon: the Builders Big Breakfast Butty.

Let’s take a look at that beauty.

Whoa there, big fella. That’s a lot to be taking in. So what have we got under the hood here?

In no particular order, we have:

  • Two rashers of back bacon
  • Two hash
  • Two pork
  • Baked beans
  • Mushrooms
  • Fried egg
  • Grilled tomato

That’s a lot of breakfast.

The whole thing weighs three quarters of a kilo and is a full four inches deep.

Being a bap-based breakfast, you can take it on the go, though one suspects that trying to cram this down your neck on your commute to work may be a terrible, terrible idea, but we’re gonna do it anyway. If that’s not your style, you can just enjoy it in store.

And the best part, the whole thing costs just £5.

According to Morrisons, the Builders Big Breakfast Butty came into existence “after café regulars reported not always having the time to sit down and enjoy their beloved Big Breakfast in the café so in response, the café team has made the breakfast sandwich to go with a foil wrapping to keep it warm.”

Danny Clee, Cafés Manager at Morrisons, said: “Customers were telling us that they didn’t always have the time to have breakfast in the café so we set about creating an on-the-go version. It’s the biggest butty we’ve ever made and not for the faint-hearted.”

The Builders Big Breakfast Butty ain’t just for meat-eaters; a vegetarian option will also be available, as well as a Scottish twist, which does not involve haggis, Irn-Bru and bad weather, as you may have thought. Instead, the hash browns are swapped for potato scones.

Can’t wait to get a hangover just so we can justify demolishing this of a Sunday morning.
