New Breakfast Items for 2019


The National Restaurant Association surveyed 650 professional members of the American Culinary Federation to determine food trends in 2019.  Plant-based alternatives and globally-inspired menu items will emerge in 2019. Alternative sources of protein and locally sourced meats and seafood will become more frequent in menu offerings. 


Ethnic flavored breakfast items such as shakshushka were mentioned as a “globally-inspired breakfast item”.  This dish which is traditional in North Africa includes a poached egg overlaid on tomatoes, onions and peppers.  Spices include cumin, paprika and nutmeg.
