Minnesota is the testing ground of a new McDonald's breakfast sandwich, which will be available at its 200+ restaurants across the state.

The fast-food giant is using the Land of 10,000 Lakes to test out its McGriddles French Toast breakfast sandwich, which if successful could be added to its permanent breakfast menu and rolled out across the country.

So what's in it? Well McDonald's says it has the following ingredients: Brioche, egg, cheese, sausage, bacon and syrup.

They describe it however in a far more alluring way: "The new all-in-one, golden breakfast sandwich comes on a warm brioche French toast bun with a grade-A freshly cracked egg, melted American cheese, savory hot sausage, thick cut Applewood smoked bacon and brushed with sweet syrup."

"You get savory and smoky flavors from the sausage and bacon," said McDonald’s Chef Mike Lingo in a press release.

"Creaminess, cheddar flavors and salt from the American cheese; sweet cinnamon, spice and vanilla flavors from the French toast. It tastes like homemade French toast. It’s everything you love about breakfast in one sandwich."

The McGriddles sandwiches, which were first introduced by McDonald's in 2003, traditionally comprise a maple-flavored pancake filled with egg, bacon and cheese, sometimes with sausage added.

The addition of French toast, McDonald's says, will fulfill "our customers' desires for a little indulgence at breakfast."
