Coffee chain boosts rehiring efforts; Fox Biz Flash: 6/8. Dunkin' is hungry for your lunch business. The coffee chain is strolling into spring in a savory way, adding avocado toast and two varieties of grilled cheese to its seasonal menu.

Dunkin announced the bougie new breakfast offering Wednesday, along with a slate of other new dishes.

"We've taken a popular brunch staple and made it accessible for anyone looking for something easy and delicious to eat on-the-go," Dunkin' Vice President Jill Nelson said in a statement.

But being the serious professional I am, I agreed to the assignment and promptly headed for the farmers market.

This recipe originally appeared on Food52. Yesterday morning, I was assembling avocado toast in the staff kitchen when one of my coworkers walked in, pulled an avocado out of her bag, and said, "Emma! This tells you all you need to know about our office. Sort of like that time I made avocado toast for breakfast, got to work, then found out that our team lunch was--surprise!--avocado toast. Or anchovies and boiled egg.
