Hardee’s and Carl’s Jr. are adding a suite of new breakfast items featuring plant-based products made by Beyond Meat.

Starting Wednesday, Carl’s Jr. is serving a Beyond Sausage burrito, made with Beyond’s meatless sausage, egg, cheese and other ingredients, as well as a Beyond Sausage egg and cheese biscuit. The chain already sells a plant-based version of its Famous Star burger featuring a Beyond Meat patty and has launched a limited-time Beyond BBQ cheeseburger.
