IF you’re a fan of a big breakfast to set you up for the weekend Morrisons’ new meal deal, where you can get 13 items for £6, might be for you.
The catch is that two people are needed to get the offer, as it’s two breakfasts for £11.99, so you need to grab a pal to help you finish the food.
Under the deal, which is available every weekend from now on, you get a “continental breakfast”, a hot brekkie, and a glass of orange juice for £6.
Continental breakfasts are new to the menu and they are made up of a croissant each, two rounds of toast each, plus butter and jam – and this costs £2.25 on its own or £4.50 for two.
Hot breakfasts are anything off Morrisons’ existing breakfast menu excluding the “Big Breakfast”, “Builders’ Big Breakfast Butty” and their vegetarian equivalents, plus porridge.
Juices, meanwhile, are normally £1.40 each or £2.80 for two.
So if you opt for eggs on toast – the cheapest hot menu item – you’d pay £12.30 in total if you bought everything separately – so you’d save 31p with the meal deal.
But if you go for pricier hot meals, such as the Big Breakfast, you’d pay £16.90 for everything individually, so you’re saving £4.91 with the meal deal – or £2.45 a person.
And with the Big Breakfast and the continental breakfast combined, you’d end up with 15 different items each: two sausages, two rashers of bacon, two hash browns, one fried egg, baked beans, mushrooms, two halves of tomato, a giant bread roll, croissant and two pieces of toast.
Morrisons has 494 stores across the UK and 404 of these have cafés – use its store locator tool to find your nearest.
Breakfast is served until 3pm although the meal deal is only available until 11.30am.
