KFC is trialling a crazy new concoction for next Easter, which sees it replace traditional burger baps with a hot cross bun.
The Hot Cross Bun Burger is currently being tested with KFC saying it could launch nationwide next year if it gets “egg-cellant” feedback.
KFC is trialling a Hot Cross Bun Burger
It sees its Classic Fillet Burger bun replaced with a hot cross bun that’s stuffed with its original recipe chicken breast fillet and served with fresh lettuce and mayo.
The fast-food chain says it’s too early to speculate on prices.How to make your own Hot Cross Bun Burger
But if you’re chomping at the bit to get your hands on the hopping mad new creation, you could make a DIY version in your own kitchen.
Just buy KFC’s Mini Fillet burger, which comes with lettuce and black pepper mayo, whip off the baps and slap your own hot cross bun around the meat.
Prices vary by store but at one London KFC branch we checked the Mini Fillet Burger cost £1.79.
Meanwhile the cheapest price we could find hot cross buns is 69p for a six-pack from Asda.
That makes it £1.90 all-in for your own version.
Or you could buy one piece of original recipe chicken on its own – costing £2.59 at the store we checked – and again stuff it inside your own hot cross bun bap – costing £2.70 all-in.
And if you sweet talk staff, you may even get some lettuce, mayo and cheese chucked in for free.

If you’re feeling extra hungry, you could pair your Kentucky fried chicken with Morrisons’ GIANT hot cross buns.
But before scoffing the tasty treat down bear in mind that hot cross buns contain up to 25g of sugar — a whole day’s worth for a child.
