Bob Evans New Menu Design

Bob Evans Farms Inc. introduced a streamlined menu this month that aims to be more user­ friendly. The menu has some additional items, and a new dinner special that allows customers to upgrade every regular­ sized dinner entrée to a three ­course meal, with a choice of soup or salad and a dessert, for $2.

The menu is physically smaller, with once heavily laminated pages replaced with smaller, thinner ones. The menu also has fewer pages. The menu has fewer photos, too, with a focus on pictures of items that underscore Bob Evans' strengths, such as the brand's signature Sausage Gravy & Biscuits, and a Border Scramble Omelet.

The menu also has some new items, including a candied bacon side dish, a proprietary
recipe with caramelized brown sugar. The item is priced at $3.99 for five pieces of bacon.
Bob Evans is promoting the candied bacon on Wednesday by offering a free slice to
anyone who orders an entrée after 11 a.m.

The chain has also introduced two new premium hamburgers made with 7 ounces of Black Angus beef. Each burger is priced at $9.99, at most locations.

  • The Bob Evans Burger is a bacon cheeseburger topped with a fried egg. 
  • The Steakhouse Burger is dressed with hardwood­ smoked bacon, grilled mushrooms, onions, cheese and steak sauce.

Bob Evans also introduced a Veggie Omelet made with broccoli, onions, roasted
mushrooms, red and green bell peppers, and Cheddar cheese, topped with tomatoes and
green onion, priced at around $5.49.

salt and ground black pepper to taste 
1 tablespoon vegetable oil 
1 tablespoon butter
1/4 cup apple cider vinegar 
2 cups apple cider

Add apple cider and Dijon mustard, bring mixture to a boil, and cook until sauce is reduced and thick, 3 to 4 minutes.
