Reality Check: The Egg White Delight McMuffin From McDonald's

Let's face it: If you're eating breakfast at McDonald's, chances are you're either hungover, late for work, or possibly both. Regardless, dieting is not part of the equation. But let's say you could cut some of the fat and cholesterol out of breakfast with something that was just as tasty. No reason not to do it, right? That's the promise McDonald's is making with its new egg white-based breakfast sandwiches. More

Want Real Eggs at McDonald's? Just Ask!

Here's the deal: you can get your McDonald's biscuit sandwiches (or any breakfast sandwich, for that matter) made with a 100% real egg, cracked and cooked fresh on-premises. All you've got to do is tell the cashier that you'd like your sandwich made with a "round egg" and they'll replace your folded egg patty with a real egg, free of charge. An egg sandwich from McDonald's that actually tastes like egg? Who'da thunk it? More

Spam and Egg Breakfast Sandwiches

When Spam and eggs are wedged into a toasted Hawaiian roll slathered in jelly (pineapple, mango, and even strawberry, all work well), it makes for an epic breakfast sandwich that might even sway the harshest of Spam critics (one could only hope). The sweetness of the rolls and the jelly balance the salty Spam and the rich, runny egg yolk. Oh, and a squirt of Sriracha never hurts either. More

A Sandwich a Day: Breakfast Torta from Taqueria El Jarocho in Seattle

In the landscape of Seattle taco trucks, Taqueria el Jarocho is a relative newcomer, but it sets itself apart from the crowd with two words: breakfast torta. Sure, there are excellent tortas elsewhere in the city (including the nearby Barriga Llena), and you can put an egg on them and maybe call them breakfast, too. At el Jarocho, this is no 'put an egg on it' type of situation, though. More

'Go Home Thomas' Egg and Sausage Sandwich

While many restaurants offer over-the-top dishes of fried meats smothered in gravy, Southeast Portland's Toast offers simpler (but no less hangover-curing) dishes like their egg and sausage sandwich puzzlingly named 'Go Home Thomas.' Their recipe offers directions for making each element from scratch, including the English muffin. More

Sandwiched: The Breakfast Sandwich

The whole mess of ham, bacon, eggs, and thin slices of yellow American cheese are piled onto one side of the bun, then covered and pressed to squash everything together: cheese melts on contact with the hot contents, egg yolks ooze out velvety yellow goodness, fat-slicked ham nestles crisp strips of bacon. A cup of coffee and you're ready for the day. More

Breakfast at Bklyn Larder, Park Slope

I have a complicated relationship with Bklyn Larder in that I love basically everything they make, bake, or stock, but can't make a habit out of buying $9-pint ice cream or $29/lb cheeses. So it's a very pleasant surprise that their new breakfast menu is gently priced. What's not surprising: that it's all excellent. More
