What Place Has The Best Breakfast Sandwiches?

Wed Feb 06, 2013 3:52 am

The title says it all, really. If you feel the need to start your day by injecting egg and pork fat into your arteries and don't have enough time for a proper sit-down breakfast, so need you cholesterol on the go, what place has the best breakfast sandwiches? And what is your "go-to" one?

When I'm back east I stop by Dunkin Donuts and grab a Ham, egg, and cheese on a toasted croissant. I could eat one of those everyday, absolutely love them. Sadly though Dunkin doesn't like flyover country so I'm stuck with McDonalds. I typically grab a bacon, egg, and cheese McGriddle. Though I tried Burger King's breakfast a couple weeks back and I think it may be my new go to.

Usually would go to a little greasy-spoon type joint round the corner called "Le Mans Café". Just bacon on the sandwich w/ brown sauce and a cup of tea.

Perfect

McDonalds all the way, every single one of their breakfast sandwiches are absolutely delicious. I usually always go with the sausage egg mcgridde, egg mcmuffin and the steak bagel.

Not really my thing (or most people's thing in France) so aside from McDonald's I don't know. I eat a McMorning with McMuffin no more than once every couple of years, usually when it's not so early in the morning but 10-11am.

I seldom find myself near any of these places before "breakfast hour" is over, so I usually make my own breakfast; and my favorite "breakfast" is.......Jaxon's fried corn meal mush ! (smothered in "Land-o-Lakes" and Mrs.Buttersworth syrup!

At the McDonald's around here, a Sausage Biscuit w/folded egg is $3.19. However, you can buy a Sausage Biscuit for $1 on the value menu, and they'll sell you a folded egg, scrambled eggs, or an egg disk for $1 off-menu. So I order a Sausage Biscuit and an egg disk for $2 total, and assemble them together right there on the spot.

McDonald's is my go to place for one big reason.... I know they are actually cracking open and cooking an egg for my Egg McMuffin. Had one this morning in fact, and I sorta like the fact that it is semi-healthy and was surprised to find out they are only 300 calories.

Places like Subway (whose breakfast sandwiches are actually ok) and DD use those premade eggs that they heat up in their toaster oven thingies that I don't quite like.


That said the breakfast burrito is the superior handheld breakfast item. Being in New Mexico there is no lack of places for a quality breakfast burrito.

Not sure about US versions, but here in the UK sausage and egg McMuffins, the nicest option, have a silly amount of fat in them. About ten grams of saturated fat. Get a double and it gets much worse.

Here is the info for the US Egg McMuffin. http://www.mcdonalds.com/us/en/food/...on.breakfast.275.egg-mcmuffin.html

Looks like the slice of fake American cheese contributes to half of the saturated fat. I think there is room for improvement on it, a true whole grain English muffin would make a big difference in having more fiber. There could be a better cheese choice as well -- even something that packs more of a flavor punch than the fake American cheese.

Really? That sucks. Back when I was in high school I worked at a McDonalds, in Missouri, and we sold people eggs all the time, it was even on the menu. We also sold just meat patties a lot too, they were popular with people traveling with dogs.

I had some killer breakfast sandwiches last year in southern Indiana at a place called Grandy's. They had a bacon biscuit (streaky bacon for you the UK), a sausage biscuit, and the oh so delicious chicken fried steak biscuit. I have only seen Grandy's in Indiana, so I don't get to eat there often.

I'm all about Tim Horton's. In Canada they are more common than McDonald's, so I know I can always get a greasy breakfast nearby. About 90% of the time I'll order a Bacon Breakfast Wrap (whole wheat wrap, "zesty sauce", cheddar cheese, scrambled eggs, couple strips of bacon).

Since the nearest Timmy's to me also happens to have a McDonald's next door to it, I occasionally indulge in a couple breakfast burritos. I personally think it is superior to anything else they offer for breakfast, and for the price it's just a good deal. They've got decent hashbrowns to go with it too.

Agreed. The breakfast burrito is far superior. Egg, meat of your choice, potato, cheese, and fresh roasted green chile or delicious red chile. I'm not a breakfast sandwich person, but a breakfast burrito with green chile is tough for me to refuse.
It is a mistake to think you can solve any major problems with just potatoes.

When I travel in the UK I love to eat bacon baps, I really can't get enough of them. This past summer I spent a week in Thornton Le Dale, England and a couple of local places had some great sausage rolls and small pork pies. I could eat that stuff at every meal.

I wish you could get McD's breakfast all day. Back when I worked at McD's we couldn't cook breakfast items in the afternoon because the grills were at different temperatures. We would cook up hash browns upon request anytime (if you ordered a few). Back in 2001 I stopped at McDonald's in Colorado Springs, Colorado that was advertising breakfast all day. I saw the sign while I was driving down the road looking for a place to eat lunch. When I saw that sign under the golden arches I wheeled right in. I have never seen a McD's before or since that had breakfast items all day.

Surprised no one has mentioned A&W yet. Their Bacon 'n' Eggers and Sausage 'n' Eggers are super good. The cheese is more melted than McDonald's and the sausage has a bit more spice to it, I also find that their hashbrowns are a bit tastier too. I do like McDonald's Sausage And Egg McMuffin though.

As for Timmie's, I do like their Sausage and Egg sandwichs, but only on the biscuit. Their hashbrowns, while flavourful are just a tad too dry, but at least they serve breakfast until noon

Corn meal mush was one of my favorite breakfasts as a child, the other was scrapple.

As for breakfast at a fast food place my choices are limited, the only places open when I go to work are McDonalds (sausage muffin with egg) and Rigebertos (sausage, egg, cheese & potato burrito).

I second this! As a college student with the tendency to sleep later than any productive member of society should, I would find this amazing. Business wise in a college town it may not be a bad idea. They serve brunch on the weekends at my school and nobody shows up until 11ish. They could make a killing on the weekends. Plus they could sucker another meal out of us!

I really think Chick-fil-a does a stellar job on their breakfast sandwiches. Even though their Chicken biscuit is VERY good, I don't think you'll find a beter tasting bacon, egg and cheese biscuit in a fast-food restaurant chain in the US!

(if you must avoid the pork and eggs and want chicken, the only competition for the Chik-fil-a chicken biscuit that I've had that comes close was from Whataburger which closed down in my area. The honey-butter was the perfect topping!)

Now this is why I started this post... saw this so decided t try it out this morning (a detour of a few blocks on my way to work, but decided to try anyway) and the sandwich I had was amazing, with only a minimal amount of guilt afterwards. Not only that, but the general atmosphere of the place was really nice (hadn't been in a Panera in a long time so wasn't sure what to expect) and it seemed to have a lot of other stuff I want to try in the future (sweet and savory). Definitely worth the extra few minutes on my commute, so thank you.

Now come on, that is just cheating. You could be having a Horse Dung McMuffin on the shores of Lake Wakitipu in Queenstown and it would still be pretty close to a perfect breakfast experience. That is like saying I am a good photographer because my pictures of Glenorchy came out great - that place is so achingly beautiful that even the crappiest photographer with the worst camera in the world would turn out masterpieces.
