Those of you running 4-day and 5-day programs, we want to let you in on a secret. Did you know you can find new entrees to sub into your menus weeks on our 7-day menus? That's right. Our 7-day menus offer many entrees found exclusively in our 7-day menu rotation. On Sundays, you'll find breakfast-for-lunch entrees including:

  • Chicken and Cheese Biscuit
  • Breakfast Fajita (pictured above)
  • Scrambled Egg Wrap
  • Breakfast Pizza
  • Cheese Omelet
  • Turkey Sausage and Gravy

There are also exclusive entrees offered on Saturdays. These include items such as:

  • Cuban Sandwich
  • Beef Curry
  • Grilled Cheese Sandwich and Tomato Soup
  • Hot Ham & Cheese Sandwich
  • Chicken Tortilla Soup
  • Cheese Calzone
  • Beef Rib Sandwich
  • Been & Cheese Burrito
  • Beef Chili

To offer one of the entrees from the 7-day menu, look for one that offers the same components and amounts as the day you're swapping out to ensure your menu week remains in compliance. You can find the components and equivalencies of each recipe at the bottom of the recipe card in the CookBook. If the entree you want to replace includes 1.5 oz. M/MA, choose a recipe that also offers 1.5 oz. M/MA. Be sure to include all the recipes that comprise your entrees when determining the components and equivalencies that need to be offered. For example, the Beef & Potato Wrap entree includes recipes 1350-Beef & Potato, 1371-Cheddar Cheese and 373-Whole Wheat Tortilla for a total of 2 M/MA and 2 WGE. A suitable substitute from the 7-day menu would be waffles and sausage from week 22, day 1.
