The typical breakfast for most New Yorkers involves bagels or egg and cheese on a roll. But some of the city’s restaurants have begun turning out delicious sandwiches to replace the usual fare. Here are a few of the city’s top breakfast sandwiches By Siobhan Wallace.
Murray’s Melts, the take-away counter inside Murray’s Cheese, takes your generic egg, bacon, and cheese and makes it extraordinary in their Breakfast Melt. The traditional fried egg is complemented with smoked bacon and fontina cheese over a Bay’s English muffin. At $6, this is a special breakfast treat for mornings that call for it.
The Breslin Bar & Dining Room
The Breslin is known for delicious fried foods, and their breakfast menu is complete with a Fried Peanut Butter & Banana Sandwich. The center is full of heated peanut butter that becomes a wonderful gooey mess and is made even better with the addition of some bourbon. This is definitely for those morning where you need a little bit more than granola and yogurt.
City Sandwich’s Portuguese influences appear in a lot of their sandwiches, including the Bench Girl. It’s filled with an omelet, melted mozzarella, grilled onions, spinach, and Portuguese Alheira–a chicken and pork sausage. This sandwich is enough for breakfast and lunch.
Court Street Grocers
Brooklyn’s Court Street Grocers also brings sausage into play with their McVictor. Eggs, hickory smoked sausage, arugula, and Cabot Creamery Cheddar all on ciabatta bread. And all for only $6, making it the perfect stop before heading into work.
Hill Country Chicken
Hill Country Chicken is best known for their fried chicken meals, but stop by in the morning for nice down-home breakfast items like the Eggs Armadillo. It’s a poached egg on top of one of their signature buttermilk biscuits, and then covered in delicious, creamy sausage gravy.
