Hardee’s Shows Off Its Chops with the New Pork Chop ‘N’ Gravy Biscuit

Customers can once again enjoy a different kind of pork for breakfast

ST. LOUIS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Hardee’s® is bringing back its take on a classic Southern meal with the reintroduction of the Pork Chop ‘N’ Gravy Biscuit. Now available at all Hardee’s locations, the Pork Chop ‘N’ Gravy Biscuit features a breaded, boneless pork chop topped with sausage gravy on a signature Made from Scratch™ buttermilk Biscuit. Always a popular menu item, Hardee’s has offered several versions of the Pork Chop Biscuit over the past 10 years.

“Beef may be what's for dinner, but pork definitely hits the spot when it comes to breakfast," said Brad Haley, chief marketing officer for Hardee’s. "From bacon to ham to sausage, in link or patty form, for a lot of people breakfast simply isn’t breakfast without pork. So, Hardee's just made pork a little more uptown with the new Pork Chop 'N' Gravy Biscuit. There is just something about a pork chop covered with sausage gravy and served in the middle of one of our signature Made from Scratch Biscuits that feels like the definition of comfort food."

The Pork Chop ‘N’ Gravy Biscuit is available for $2.99 as an entrée and $4.69 as a small combo with Hash Rounds® and a beverage. Prices may vary by location.
