A Sandwich a Day

A different sandwich profiled every single day.

In this great country of ours, one could eat a different sandwich every day of the year—so that's what we'll do. Here's A Sandwich a Day, our daily look at sandwiches around the country. Got a sandwich we should check out? Let us know. —The Mgmt.

Avocado and cream cheese had never occurred 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. While all those elements are creamy, they're not particularly heavy, making this vegetarian sandwich satisfying without settling too heavily in the stomach.
