Although McDonald’s has made quite a splash with its all-day breakfast here in the U.S., there are some breakfast items the fast food chain has yet to take on. Like the breakfast burger, a staple at any diner worth its salt. McDonald’s is dipping a toe into those waters in Australia, where it’s serving up the Aussie Angus ‘n’ Egg burger.

The new limited-time “Legends” menu item will debut Wednesday, Macca’s (as it’s called Down Under) confirmed to, and is timed to the upcoming opening of the Summer Olympics.

The burger combines Angus beef, of course; cooked egg, beetroot (weird, Australia), grilled onions, bacon, barbecue sauce, and cheese on a sesame-seed bun.

There’s another new “Legends” item that’s showing up for the Olympics as well, a strange beast called the Aussie Chicken ‘n’ Pineapple, which has grilled or crispy chicken, bacon, lettuce, pineapple, cheese, and mayo on a chili-chive bun.
