Three Egg Sandwiches to Start Your Morning Right
Why settle for anything less when breakfast options like these exist?
Sunday Morning Breakfast Sandwich
Johnson Public House, 908 E. Johnson St., 347-0483, johnsonpublichouse.com
- Madison Sourdough country wheat bread
- New Century Farm hardboiled egg
- Usinger’s Black Forest ham. The smoky flavor from the slow-roasted ham lends substance without feeling too meat-heavy.
- Wisconsin mild cheddar
- Sam & Sons pure maple syrup. Genius. The touch of sweet mixed with the full-on savory flavors from the egg, cheese and ham is what makes this sandwich so incredible.
Breakfast Sandwich #1
4&20 Bakery & Café, 305 N. 4th St., 819-8893, 4and20bakery.com
- Buttermilk biscuit. This ain’t no Pillsbury. Made in-house, the biscuit is salty and buttery and worth every last bite.
- Butterbean Farm spinach
- JenEhr Family Farm roasted red pepper. The pepper adds an interesting texture and a slight sweet and smoky taste.
- New Century Farm organic egg
- Havarti cheese. The choice of Havarti over a more common cheese provides a leg up on your typical egg-on-a-biscuit.
Pesto Omelet Focaccia
Indie Coffee, 1225 Regent St., 259-9621, indiecoffee.net
- Focaccia. Hints of infused rosemary and thyme complement the chèvre while the just-outta-the-oven temp warms the whole sandwich through.
- Roasted red pepper
- Pesto omelet. The simple egg omelet is smothered with a garlic-forward pesto spread that adds a flavorful punch.
- Chèvre. The goat cheese oozes out when you take a bite, making this sandwich one best enjoyed from the safety of a table and chair, not a moving vehicle.
