One of America’s Favorites – Breakfast Sandwich

Breakfast sandwich

Breakfast sandwich

In North America, a breakfast sandwich is any sandwich filled with foods associated with the breakfast meal. Breakfast sandwiches are served at fast food restaurants and delicatessens or bought as fast, ready to heat and eat sandwiches from a store. Breakfast sandwiches can also be made from scratch in the home.

Breakfast sandwiches typically are made using breakfast meats (generally cured meats such as sausages, patty sausages, bacon, country ham, Spam and pork roll), breads, eggs and cheese. These sandwiches were typically regional specialties until fast food restaurants began serving breakfast. Because the types of bread common, such as biscuits, bagels, and English muffin were similar in size to a fast food hamburger buns, they made an obvious choice for fast food restaurants. Unlike other breakfast items, they were perfect for the innovation of the drive-through. These sandwiches have also become a staple of many convenience stores, that serve them as take-away items.

 

 

Although the ingredients for the breakfast sandwich have been common elements of breakfast meals in the English-speaking world for centuries, it was not until the 19th century in the United States that people began regularly eating eggs, cheese, and meat in a sandwich. What would later be known as “breakfast sandwiches” became increasingly popular after the Civil War, and were a favorite food of pioneers during American westward expansion. The first known published recipe for a “breakfast sandwich” was in an 1897 American cookbook.

 

 

There are several types of bread used to make breakfast sandwiches:

A bacon, egg and cheese sesame bagel

A bacon, egg and cheese sesame bagel

* Hard roll: The traditional breakfast sandwich of the northeast’s tri-state region of New York, New Jersey, and Connecticut. It is believed to be one of the earliest forms of the breakfast sandwich in the United States. It consists of a hard roll, eggs, cheese and sausage, bacon or ham. In New Jersey, a common breakfast sandwich is the Jersey Breakfast which consists of pork roll, egg, and cheese on a hard (Kaiser) roll.
* Biscuit: Consists of a large, or cat-head biscuit, sliced, on which meat, cheese, or eggs are served. Popular biscuits include: Sausage biscuit, bacon, tomato, and country ham. Fast food restaurants have put smaller versions of fried chicken fillets on biscuits to create chicken biscuits. Scrambled eggs and/or American cheese are often added.

* Bagel Sandwiches: Due to its Jewish connection, bagels often contain foods associated with the community, such as deli meats, lox or other smoked fish, and cream cheese.
* English muffin: Generally contains egg and cheese with either breakfast sausage or ham. Often served in U.S. fast food outlets such as McDonald’s and Starbucks.
* Toast: Toasted bread is one of the oldest forms of breakfast sandwich in America, and the closest to the original sandwich in form. While any number of items might be served on toast, eggs and bacon are the ones most associated with breakfast.
* Specialty breads: Mostly served by restaurant chains, there are other breakfast sandwiches that do not use one of the common breakfast breads used in the United States. Burger King uses a croissant to make a breakfast sandwich called the Croissan’Wich, or croissant sandwich, depending on the market. McDonald’s offers its traditional biscuit fillings on a sandwich made from maple flavored pancakes called a McGriddles. Dunkin’ Donuts has a waffle sandwich that is similar to the McGriddles. These can be found at American fast food franchises worldwide.

The Best & Worst Fast-Food Breakfast SandwichesEatingWell2
Find out how to make the healthiest choice on your next fast-food breakfast sandwich.
Breakfast is important—it fuels your morning and may help keep your hunger in check so you don’t overdo it at lunch. Although making breakfast at home is ideal—you have more control over the ingredients and can make sure you have a healthy, balanced meal—there are times when you need or want to pick up breakfast on the go. Many popular fast-food restaurants now offer breakfast sandwiches, which spurred me to look into the healthiest (and least healthy) options.

 

 

Starbucks
The Best: The Starbucks Spinach & Feta Breakfast Wrap has 290 calories, 3.5 grams of saturated fat, 6 grams of fiber, 19 grams of protein and 830 mg of sodium. It’s Starbucks’s lowest-calorie option, plus the 6 grams of fiber will help you feel full longer. If you want a more classic breakfast sandwich, try the Starbucks Turkey Bacon & White Cheddar Classic Breakfast Sandwich. It has 320 calories, 2 grams of saturated fat, 3 grams of fiber, 18 grams of protein and 700 mg of sodium.

The Worst: The Starbucks Sausage & Cheddar Classic Breakfast Sandwich has 500 calories, 9 grams of saturated fat, less than a gram of fiber, 19 grams of protein and 920 mg of sodium. Choosing sausage over the turkey bacon in the healthier sandwich makes a big impact on calories and saturated fat……

 
McDonald’s
The Best: The McDonald’s Egg McMuffin® has 300 calories, 5 grams of saturated fat, 2 grams of fiber, 18 grams of protein and 820 mg sodium. This basic breakfast sandwich has fewer calories and less saturated fat than any of the McDonald’s options with sausage, bacon or served on biscuits or McGriddles®.

The Worst: The McDonald’s Sausage, Egg & Cheese McGriddle® has 560 calories, 12 grams of saturated fat, 2 grams of fiber, 20 grams of protein and 1,360 mg of sodium. By choosing a breakfast sandwich that has sausage and is served on a pancake-type bun, called a McGriddle®, you add extra calories, saturated fat and sodium…..

Mom  Hamilton Beach Sandwich Maker 002

Well I received my newest kitchen gadget yesterday afternoon and tried it out today. Out of 5 stars I give this one a perfect 5 star rating! Makes a perfect breakfast sandwich, McDonalds you’ve been served! Love this thing, easy to use, makes perfect breakfast sandwiches, and easy to clean up. No more skillets and no Olive Oil or Canola Oils needed, just a little Pam Spray is all that’s needed.

 

My first attempt at a sandwich went perfect. I used a Healthy Choice Whole Grain English Muffin, 1 Medium Size Egg, 1 Slice of Canadian Bacon (Ham), and a spray of Pam Cooking Spray. Took a few minutes to warm up and then 5 minutes to heat the sandwich and done! Hot breakfast sandwich and it was only 190 calories and 13 net carbs! I’ll be getting alot of use out this purchase!

The Golden Arches got me this morning…

I had purchased some JTM Hogies to grill for dinner tonight but forgot to pick up a bag of Aunt Millie’s Whole Grain Mini Sub Buns. Friday’s are always busy at local Walmarts and sometimes real tough to get an electric cart, and if your handicapped and rely on the carts to get around you go early. So I went early this morning, around 7:00 and grabbed a package of the buns and some milk. After that I’m on my way home and it happened my car was pulled into the parking lot of the Golden Arches, McDonald’s! I haven’t had a Breakfast Sandwich or anything else from McD’s in at least 5 – 7 years. But in a moment of weakness and convenience I had a Sausage McMuffin. I’m not going to lie the sandwich never stood a chance! I inhaled it and it was delicious. It may not be another 5 – 7 years before I have another!

Egg White Delight McMuffin

Egg White Delight McMuffin: McDonald’s To Roll-Out Breakfast Item Nationally
McDonald’s is rolling out a yolk-free version of its Egg McMuffin this spring.

The world’s biggest hamburger chain says the “Egg White Delight” will be made with a whole grain muffin, Canadian bacon and white cheddar cheese. It will be available nationally April 22 and clock in at 250 calories, compared with 300 calories for a regular Egg McMuffin.

The Oak Brook, Ill.-based chain says the egg whites will be cooked on the grill with a spatula. Customers can request the egg whites for Egg White Delight McMuffinother breakfast sandwiches as well. When asked whether there would be an extra charge for the egg white substitutes, McDonald’s spokeswoman Ofelia Casillas said in an email that the company doesn’t stipulate pricing to franchisees.

McDonald’s had announced last year that it was testing the breakfast sandwich. It was revealed as part of the company’s announcement that it would begin posting calorie counts on menu nationwide ahead of a new federal regulation.

The move was also intended to address criticism that fast-food chains such as McDonald’s Corp. contribute to rising obesity rates and appeal to customers looking for healthier menu options.

The launch date was reported earlier by The Daily Meal, a website that covers food news.
