A Turkey Club at its Finest

Foster’s Market

BEST buttermilk biscuit sandwich I have ever had.  We waited in line for an hour and a half (we also went at prime hour, Saturday at noon) to have breakfast here.  The biscuit is not overly buttery (unlike the one at Popeye’s, which I also really like) yet somehow still tastes so damn good.  It is slightly crumbly, which pairs perfectly with their homemade tomato jam (what ketchup tries to be).  The scrambled eggs are creamy and the hash browns are crisp on the edges and soft otherwise.  You can still taste bits of sea salt crusted on the crispy edges of the potato… mmm… Continue reading Clinton St. Baking Company: Buttermilk Biscuit Sandwich

Flour Bakery (Cambridge, MA): Breakfast Sandwich

Breakfast sandwich with egg, ham, cheddar, arugula, and homemade dijon

 

Craving this right now… You would be surprised at how bad and good breakfast sandwiches can taste because they are all essentially bread and egg. But like all food with simple recipes, the subtleties are important. Ratios and fresh fresh fressshhhhh ingredients.  This one here is a true gem.
