(Newser) – Because sometimes, a single layer of sausage, meat, and cheese is just not enough: McDonald's is adding a new breakfast item to its menu, the Triple Breakfast Stack. The sandwiches are basically oversize versions of the fast-food chain's pre-existing McMuffin, McGriddle, and biscuit products, except these have two sausage patties, two slices of cheese, bacon, and egg. Today estimates they'll clock in at 970 calories apiece. They hit stores Nov. 1, CNN reports. "We were inspired by your love for menu hacks and our 'Secret Menu,'" the company explained in a tweet. The company teased the announcement during an earnings call Tuesday, at which the CEO mentioned that breakfast is a "battleground" as competitors continue to offer new options. (Like Taco Bell's "biscuit taco" or Burger King's ... Whopper?)
