OAKVILLE, Ont. — Sunset Grill Restaurants and the McIlhenny Company’s Tabasco brand have teamed up to create a new dish at the Canadian breakfast chain — the new Southwest Vegan Breakfast Hash with Tabasco Chipotle sauce.
Sunset Grill’s vegan hash combines home fries with sautéed onion, red pepper and mushrooms, served with a side of diced tomatoes and gluten-free guacamole. The dish was created in part due to guest demand for more vegan-friendly breakfast options.
“The smoky profile of the Tabasco Chipotle Sauce perfectly complements the southwest flavour of Sunset Grill’s vegan hash and really takes the dish to a whole new level,” says Angelo Christou, founder and CEO of Sunset Grill Restaurants Ltd.
The sauce — available in all Sunset Grill franchised locations until late April 2019 — is considered a medium on the Scoville scale and is made of vine-ripened red jalapeño peppers smoked over an open pecan-wood fire. It’s also preservative-free, gluten-free, non-GMO, kosher and halal.
“Tabasco Foodservice Canada is thrilled to partner with an iconic local Canadian brand in Sunset Grill. We salute their ongoing efforts to innovate customer-centric, healthier — in this case vegan-friendly —options that deliver big flavour and satisfaction,” says Daryl Lunney, vice-president, Marketing at Tabasco Foodservice Canada. “Loyal Sunset Grill patrons will now have the opportunity to elevate their other amazing offerings with a touch of the southwest by adding just a few dashes of Tabasco Chipotle Sauce.”
