Finding a hot breakfast might be difficult is you go into work in the early morning hours. That may change thanks to Dallas-based 7-Eleven.

The company is offering a Big Morning Combo Meal that features an improved hot-breakfast sandwich and a 12-ounce hot beverage. Sandwich choices include sausage, egg and cheddar cheese on a buttermilk biscuit or English muffin or an egg and cheddar cheese croissant sandwich with choice of ham or bacon.

You can stop and buy one of these sandwiches either hot to eat right away, or cold, so that you can take it with you.

The new combo meal is already having a positive impact on breakfast sandwich sales for 7-Eleven. Breakfast-sandwich sales increased 55 percent the first week they were sold as a meal with a cup of coffee, according to a company news release.

Not only will these new breakfast sandwiches offer consumers another choice but sausage and bacon sales will continue to rise. Both of these products are hot items on restaurant menus.
