I believe this is the best idea Tim Hortons never even thought of; but, they can take this idea if they want. Just as long as they name it after me.
First, a bit of background. I love the Tim Hortons breakfast sandwiches. I think they are like 3 kabillion times better than an Egg McMuffin, and contrary to Torontoist's opinion, I think the Tim Hortons sandwich looks 100 times better too.
Anyway, McDonald's has a different sandwich offering than just the Egg McMuffin. They have the McGriddle. Essentially, it's a breakfast sandwich that can come complete with all your favourite greasy goodness - bacon or sausage, cheese, and egg - but instead of an English muffin or a biscuit or something, it's shoved in between two pancakes infused with syrup.
In short, it's a breakfast buffet in a sandwich. It's brilliant.
Well, Tim Hortons must compete and so I got to thinking.
Tim Hortons does the breakfast sandwich. What does Tim Hortons have that is sweet and could hold in a whole pile of breakfast sandwich goodness? Don't make me draw you a picture.
That's right: doughnuts (or donuts, whatever).
Tim Hortons should offer the Donut Breakfast Sandwich! Customers could put their choice of fillings - egg & cheese, bacon, or sausage - and shove it inside their choice of donut. The donut would be masterfully cut in half and filled with all that good stuff.
What says Canada more than a maple dip donut filled with bacon, cheese and egg? That's good eatin'.
