What has a runny egg, meat (sometimes veggies) and cheese sandwiched between two buttery biscuits that’s sure to get ya goin’ in the morning?
That’s right, we’re talkin’ breakfast (or brunch) sandwiches – the most productive cure to any hangover, kick-starter to any work day, and freakin’ awesome on-the-go breakfast to eat with your hands during your morning commute.
If you’re in Chicago, these breakfast sammies are a great cure to your Lollapalooza hangover but no worries, West Coast, we’ve got you covered too. Here are some of our favorite breakfast sandwiches you should check out!
While we wouldn’t say no to a burger in the morning, opt for one of the breakfast sandwiches at M Burger at the Thompson Center! All come on a warm toasted English muffin – Classic Egg and Cheese ($2.99), Bacon, Egg and Cheese (with brown sugar, black pepper bacon!) ($3.49) and Turkey Sausage, Egg and Cheese ($3.99). FYI – Guacamole can be added to any sandwich for an extra $.30.
Breakfast Bao are a magical thing! Try their Egg, Bacon & Cheddar, Egg Spinach and Mushroom, Egg and Spicy Sausage or BBQ Pork ($1.99 each). Breakfast Buns are also available and include Pork Belly, Egg and Cheese, Spicy Sausage, Egg and Cheese or Spinach, Mushroom, Egg and Cheese ($3.19).
