They had us at "fried chicken benedict bowl."
Born in Lebanon, Tennessee in 1969, and perfecting it's down-home craft ever since, it's no surprise that Cracker Barrel knows what Southerners crave. With their latest menu arrivals for spring 2018, it's clear they've once again knocked it out of the park.
Available nationwide March 19th for $8.99 each, the comfort food maestros will be launching three seasonal "Southern Bowls" that riff on traditional favorites. First, there's the Fried Chicken Benedict bowl (pictured above) with fried chicken, two over-easy eggs smothered in pimento cheese sauce, and garnished with parsley on a split buttermilk biscuit. The bowl will also include their new sweet pepper n' red skin hash.
Next, the Ham n' Maple Bacon Bowl combines maple-pepper bacon with hickory-smoked country ham, alongside sugar-cured ham with sticky-sweet maple onion jam slathered on top. In addition to the sweet pepper n' red skin hash. This meal also comes with two scrambled eggs sprinkled with Colby cheese, and two buttermilk biscuits.
Last but certainly not least is the Sausage, Grits Cakes n' Green Tomato Gravy Bowl. This mouthwatering dish starts with a layer of the new hash under sausage patties and two scrambled eggs with shredded Colby cheese. The pièce de résistance? Two deep-fried stone-ground pimento cheese grits cakes, clearly designed to stay in your dreams for many, many nights to come. To complete the meal, rich, green tomato gravy with fresh parsley is ladled over the top. Of course, it's also served up with those signature buttermilk biscuits.
