One of America’s Favorites – Bacon, Egg and Cheese Sandwich

December 30, 2019 at 6:02 AM | Posted in One of America's Favorites | 2 Comments

An open bacon, egg, and cheese sandwich

A bacon, egg and cheese sandwich is a breakfast sandwich popular in the United States and Canada. The sandwich is typically made with bacon, eggs (typically fried or scrambled), cheese and bread, which may be buttered and toasted. Many similar sandwiches exist, substituting alternate meat products for the bacon or using different varieties of cheese or bread. The sandwich is often served as a breakfast item with coffee. BEC is sometimes used as an acronym for the sandwich, as is BE&C.

Bacon, egg, and cheese sandwiches are particularly popular in urban areas such as New York City. Their popularity in such settings may be attributed to their ubiquitous availability from numerous convenience stores, food trucks, and other small businesses, and the rapidity with which they can be produced. In addition to their availability at the above locations, restaurants exist with menus themed around variations upon the dish.

Many variations of the sandwich exist. Common choices for cheese include American, cheddar, provolone, and Swiss. The bacon can be substituted with many other types of preserved or seasoned meat like breakfast sausage, ham, back bacon (Canadian bacon), or pork roll. Various types of bread roll can be used as the bread for the sandwich, such as a croissant, bagel or kaiser roll. Tomato is sometimes used as an addition, and more robust versions include a hash brown. The dish can also be served as a burrito or taco. The eggs are commonly scrambled or prepared as an omelette, but are occasionally fried. Either whole eggs or egg whites may be used.

A typical sandwich with these ingredients has about 20 grams of fat and 350 calories. A version has been adapted to make a low carbohydrate meal. In the United States, the bacon egg and

McDonald’s Egg McMuffin, a bacon, egg and cheese sandwich using Canadian bacon

cheese sandwich has also been modified into a prepackaged food product as a Hot Pocket (170 calories and 7 grams of fat) and a Lean Pocket (150 calories and 4.5 grams of fat).

In the United States, Sonic Drive-In offers a bacon egg and cheese “toaster”. Arby’s offers a “Sourdough Bacon, Egg & Swiss” with 500 calories and 29 grams of fat. Burger King serves up a “Croissan’wich with Bacon, Egg & Cheese” (360 calories and 22 grams of fat) as well as a “Double Croissan’wich with Sausage, Bacon, Egg & Cheese” (610 calories and 46 grams of fat). In New Zealand and some parts of Australia a “Massive McMuffin” is offered with ketchup, bacon, egg, American cheese and two sausage patties. For a time, Burger King offered an “Enormous Omelet Sandwich” with two egg patties, two strips of bacon, two slices of cheese and a sausage patty.
