CHICAGO — First they made the Doritos taco shells—now, Taco Bell is turning breakfast upside down just because they can.

Taco Bell unveiled its fried egg “Naked Egg Taco.”

It’s filled with potatoes and cheese, with the egg on the outside.

The Naked Egg Taco launches nationwide on August 31.

Taco Bell will give fans an early chance to try it out beginning August 17 with brunch-esque “Bell & Breakfast” events.

The events will kick-off in New York on Thursday, August 17, and will continue at Taco Bell restaurants in Laguna Beach, Calif., on August 25, Austin, Texas, on August 26, and Chicago on August 27.

Reservations are available exclusively through OpenTable and additional seatings will be released in the days before launch. Fans unable to score a seat are encouraged to follow along using the hashtag, #NakedEggTaco.

The taco is available for a limited time a la carte for $1.99 or in a breakfast combo that includes a coffee or medium drink and two Cinnabon Delights or a hash brown for $3.99.

For the more modest, it is also available “dressed” in a Gordita Flatbread.
