Carl's Jr.: Vegan breakfast, too

Carl's Jr. now has "Beyond Meat" vegetarian breakfast sandwiches and breakfast burritos. Pretty cool.

I don't think the Beyond Meat breakfast sandwich can be made vegan, because the buttermilk biscuit is not vegan. The burrito should be vegan, if the eggs and cheese are omitted:

Before everyone gets pissed off because the Beyond Meat patties are being cooked with the same utensils as the beef burgers, let's remember that (1) eating a milligram of accidental beef grease doesn't worsen animal suffering, and (2) over 90% of "Beyond Meat" customers are omnivores who are interested in reducing their meat consumption (that's good, right?)

Sorry, must do:

I wouldn't have a problem with traces of non-vegetarian ingredients on the grill, since that wouldn't increase animal exploitation- but I was wondering about the eggs and cheese. Then I read further: a customer can ask them to leave the egg or cheese off, although again, there might be nonvegan cross-contamination.

I dunno... if I ask them to leave the egg and cheese off, shouldn't it be a tiny bit cheaper?

I've tried this already, it is good and it's a start for them to make a change with their menu.
