Beginning Nov. 6 through early January, Denny’s will roll out a Hobbit-inspired menu featuring such mysteries as “Hobbit Hole Breakfast,” “Frodo’s Pot Roast Skillet,” “Gandalf’s Gobble Melt” and the “Build Your Own Hobbit Slam,” which includes a helping of Shire Sausage — presumably just regular sausage, but who knows?
Why Denny’s? The chain told AdAge hobbits are all about comfort food — they eat two breakfasts, after all — so Denny’s was an obvious fit.
Here’s a preview of the menu, which you can start enjoying ahead of The Hobbit’s release on December 14:
- Donald Trump broke with decades of US policy by speaking with the president of Taiwan Friday, a move that could anger China.
- A jury failed to reach a verdict Friday in the case of Michael Slager, a former South Carolina officer charged in the fatal shooting of Walter Scott.
- The CEO of Zenefits plans to step down after 10 months on the job. A legal mess nearly sank the company this year.
