I have come late to the egg sandwich party.
I have been eating eggs-on-a-plate for years but not all stacked up on bread with bacon or cheese or spinach on ‘em. Over the last year in particular, I have gone looking for egg sandwiches. And I thought I might put this blog to use for the greater good by creating a national clearing house for the egg sandwich. This way we can travel the globe and hopefully find what we’re looking for nearby.
Consider the gauntlet thrown!!
Please leave your egg sandwich recommendations NOW!
Chicago Egg Sandwich Overview:
I need somebody to speak to the McDonald’s situation. I have never had a McMuffin and if it’s like the Dunkin Donuts cheese, I won’t be trying one either. Although DD has a croissant, the whole thing is too processed for me.
Einstein Bagel makes an egg sandwich on a bagel. I find it too doughy although the eggs are quite good.
Starbucks has had a spectacular opening with their assortment of egg sandwiches. Done on an English muffin, which I like very much; I order the *Florentine* and the *Black Forest* although there are two other varieties, I can’t get past those first two. I also like the way they call your name when it’s ready.
Please feel free to add to this list of food-chain options.
Now for individual restaurants:
M Henry: (Edgewater, 5707 Clark St.) This bakery café has really delicious egg sandwiches that are fairly large and expensive but mmhhm-good! Don’t die wondering.
There’s also a place on Clark, just south of Diversey (east side of the street on a corner) that does have the biggest egg sandwich (and most expensive–like, $9.00) that I’ve ever had. It is as big as your head and wrapped in foil and takes like 10 minutes to prepare. But it’s something to do with a date or a yoga partner after class when you’re so hungry you could eat a chair. I’ll come up with the name eventually.
Okay, show me what you got. No dive bar, Ma & Pa store or breakfast nook should go un-mentioned.
