> Sandwich: Chicken and the Egg Biscuit
> Restaurant: Cahawba House
> City: Montgomery
This Montgomery mainstay offers a “build your own” selection of breakfast sandwich ingredients to be enclosed in a biscuit, a bagel, or a couple of pieces of toast, but also lists this particular sandwich as one of the house favorites. The ingredients are a fried chicken patty, an egg, and goat cheese.
> Sandwich: Reindeer Breakfast Sausage
> Restaurant: The Sandwich Deck
> City: Anchorage
Yes, the sausage is made with reindeer meat. Scrambled eggs and American cheese complete the sandwich on toasted bread.
> Sandwich: No. 22 Breakfast Sandwich
> Restaurant: Zookz Sandwiches
> City: Phoenix (two locations)
The ingredients in this sandwich acknowledge the Southwest, adding black beans, avocado, and Chipotle sauce to two poached eggs, bacon, ham, and cheddar.
> Sandwich: Big Pig
> Restaurant: Ozark Mountain Bagel Co.
> City: Bentonville
Ozark offers 17 kinds of “New York style bagels made in Northwest Arkansas.” The Big Pig is a sandwich on any one of these that includes egg, cheese, and three pork products — bacon, ham, and sausage. The combination probably goes better with some bagels than others — plain or onion, say, rather than blueberry or chocolate chip.
> Sandwich: Sausage, Egg & Cheese
> Restaurant: Eggslut
> City: Los Angeles (four area locations)
This cult breakfast spot doesn’t serve just any old sausage, egg, and cheese breakfast sandwich. The sausage is house-made turkey; the over-medium eggs are cage-free; the cheese is cheddar; and there’s honey-mustard aïoli on the brioche bun.
