Sonic, Dunkin’ Donuts and Red Robin each introduced limited-time offer sandwiches to their menus this week.

On Nov. 7, Dunkin’ said it will offer a Smokehouse Sausage Breakfast Sandwich. The new item features a toasted English muffin filled with egg, American cheese and smoked sausage.

“We’re always looking for ways to innovate around our breakfast menu and introduce new and unique flavor choices,” Stan Frankenthaler, Dunkin’ Brands executive chef and vice president of product innovation, said in a statement. “We’re confident that our guests will love this new menu item.”

The new sandwich will be available through the end of December at participating Dunkin' Donuts locations at a suggested price of $3.29, the company said.

Canton, Mass.-based Dunkin’ Donuts has more than 9,700 locations worldwide.

Oklahoma City-based Sonic also introduced new sandwiches this week.

The quick-service chain will offer two Toaster Melt sandwiches during November and December. The Bacon Cheddar sandwich includes a beef patty, grilled onions, bacon, Cheddar cheese, pickles and barbecue sauce between Texas toast. The Mushroom Swiss sandwich, also served between Texas toast, features a beef patty topped with grilled onions, Portobello mushrooms, Swiss cheese and mayonnaise.

“These new Toaster Melt sandwiches pack an unbelievable one-two punch of flavor and value," Danielle Vona, Sonic chief marketing officer, said in a statement. “Sonic customers now have two more delicious ways to stay toasty this winter.”

For the holiday season, Red Robin has introduced a Sweet Jim beam Swiss Burger, which consists of a bourbon-glazed beef patty topped with Applewood smoked bacon, caramelized bourbon onions and melted Swiss cheese on a garlic butter toasted brioche bun.

“This burger is truly the epitome of sweet meets savory,” said Dave Woolley, Red Robin’s executive chef. “The bourbon is cooked down with molasses and caramelized onions, so there is no alcohol in the burger, and is paired with a buttery brioche bun, Swiss cheese and Applewood smoked bacon to make the perfect, crave-able holiday treat for burger lovers of all ages.”

The item is available for a limited time through Dec. 24.

Red Robin has more than 460 casual-dining restaurants in the United States and Canada.
