Alabama • Sandwich: Chicken and the Egg Biscuit • Restaurant: Cahawba House • City: Montgomery • This Montgomery mainstay offers a build-your-own selection of breakfast sandwich ingredients to be enclosed in a biscuit, a bagel,or a couple of pieces of toast, but also lists this particular sandwich as one of the house favorites. The ingredients are a fried chicken patty, an egg and goat cheese.
Alaska • Sandwich: Reindeer Breakfast Sausage • Restaurant: The Sandwich Deck • City: Anchorage• Yes, the sausage is made with reindeer meat. Scrambled eggs and American cheese complete the sandwich on toasted bread.
Arizona • Sandwich: No. 22 Breakfast Sandwich • Restaurant: Zookz Sandwiches • City: Phoenix (two locations) • The ingredients in this sandwich acknowledge the Southwest, adding black beans, avocado and Chipotle sauce to two poached eggs, bacon, ham and cheddar.
Arkansas • Sandwich: Big Pig • Restaurant: Ozark Mountain Bagel Co. • City: Bentonville • Ozark offers 17 kinds of “New York style bagels made in Northwest Arkansas.” The Big Pig is a sandwich on any one of these that includes egg, cheese and three pork products — bacon, ham and sausage. The combination probably goes better with some bagels than others — plain or onion, say, rather than blueberry or chocolate chip.
California • Sandwich: Sausage, Egg & Cheese • Restaurant: Eggslut • City: Los Angeles (four area locations) • This cult breakfast spot doesn’t serve just any old sausage, egg and cheese breakfast sandwich. The sausage is house-made turkey; the over-medium eggs are cage-free; the cheese is cheddar; and there’s honey-mustard aïoli on the brioche bun.
