Great news for breakfast enthusiasts: Taco Bell’s bizarre “naked egg taco” is coming back

If you love tacos so much you’d eat them for breakfast, it’s time to put your money where your mouth is. Taco Bell has been hyping up its breakfast menu a lot lately, and now it’s bringing back one of the items that debuted last year. It’s official: Taco Bell’s “naked egg taco” is coming back, and…we’re confused on whether or not this is a good thing or a bad thing.

If you’ve never had one before, the naked egg taco is basically exactly what it sounds like: a “taco” with a fried egg as the shell, with potatoes, nacho cheese, and either bacon or sausage inside. The brand announced its return this week, along with a special: Starting March 8th, you can get two for $3.49, which sounds like a pretty cheap breakfast deal to us.

So whether you’ve really missed the naked egg taco during breakfast hours or want to give it a try for the first time, head on over to Taco Bell.

In its press release, Taco Bell’s chief food innovations officer, Liz Matthews, said that the naked egg taco lets Taco Bell “shake up the ordinary breakfast in a way only we can,” and we’d definitely have to agree with her. Feast your eyes on this, folks:


That actually looks pretty good, right? And if you’re feeling a little squeamish about the fact that the shell is an egg, don’t worry — you can also order this with a Gordita flatbread so it becomes more of a traditional, less naked breakfast sandwich.

This naked egg taco might actually be worth a try, especially since Taco Bell has such an awesome track record for making weird-sounding food taste delicious. After all, where would we be without Doritos tacos and nacho fries?
