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

A Sandwich a Day: Breakfast Sandwich at Devil's Teeth Baking Company, San Francisco

This bang-for-your-buck breakfast sandwich ($5) is, thankfully, served all day. It all starts with the biscuit: freshly baked, buttery, flaky, and supersized without having that bad-biscuit pasty consistency. Even better, it manages to hold together the pile of scrambled eggs and molten cheddar cheese oozing from the bottom, top, and middle of the egg's folds. More

Los Angeles: 8 Egg Sandwiches We Love

Forget one a day, in Los Angeles, you could easily eat three sandwiches a day. And in this alternate universe of hero, sub, and panino bliss, each day would start with a breakfast sandwich, that eye-opening combination of egg, cheese, maybe a little meat, or a few vegetables thrown in for good measure. Here are eight that are up to the task. More

A Sandwich A Day: 'Tiger Paws' at Shopsin's

There's one model of great egg sandwiches, not unlike one model of a great hamburger, that has totally melted cheese (there's nothing wrong with American), soft, fluffy eggs (if they're scrambled), and a squishy bun that's soft enough so nothing spills out when you bite it. That's what you get with the "Tiger Paws" at Shopsin's ($8, +$4 with bacon): three mini egg-sandwiches, served in a row slider-style. More

Cook the Book: Israeli Workingman's Lunch

We love a good egg sandwich—bacon, egg and cheese, egg salad, Croque Madame, we could go on and on, but we have to thank The Big New York Sandwich Book for introducing us to another egg-centric lunchtime repast, the Israeli Workingman's Lunch. One might assume that most workaday Israelis are bent over an overstuffed falafel but Snir Eng Sela, chef at Commerce had a different sort of Israeli lunch in mind. More

A Sandwich A Day: The 'Phyllis' at The Local Yolk in Austin, TX

Avocado and cream cheese had never occured to me as elements of an egg sandwich, but now that I've had it I'm a huge fan. At Austin's The Local Yolk cart, the "Phyllis" ($7) stacks those ingredients in precise, even layers—a slim fried egg that's just barely set in the middle, buttery, even slices of avocado, and a substantial layer of cream cheese—between slices of white bread that gets a great crunch to counter the soft middle.
