An Easy Way To Elevate Your Next Breakfast Sandwich

Breakfast sandwiches are great for on-the-go mornings before work, or enjoying at home before a busy day. The handheld food is easy to eat quickly and still fills you up enough to keep you satisfied until lunch time.

With so many filling options, you can customize your sandwich to fit your needs — whether you follow a plant-based diet, want some extra protein, or are just craving some melty cheese, many quick service cafes like Starbucks and Dunkin offer breakfast sandwiches to fulfill your morning cravings, so you can stop for a quick bite on your commute in to the office. If you have time in the morning, you could even make your own at home for the full customization experience, and ensure you get the exact ingredients you're craving — like homemade sriracha butter.

The next time you want to enhance the breakfast sandwich experience, there is one simple trick you can try. After all, breakfast is the most important meal of the day, so you should enjoy it.

Add some extra texture to your morning meal

Adding some extra crunch to your breakfast sandwich could be a great way to incorporate texture and kick your morning off to a great start. The Kitchn even says that texture can be just as important as flavor when making a meal. One easy way to enhance the sandwich texture is by toasting the bread. Whether you opt for a bun, English muffin, or croissant, tossing it in the toaster can crisp it up and create a crunchy outer layer.

To achieve the perfect crisp, Serious Eats suggests brushing both sides of the bread with butter, then grilling them to a perfect golden-brown color. From there, add the toppings. Additions like egg, bacon, cheese, and vegetables can help diversify the flavor profile of the sandwich, as well as the textures it contains.

Though the request to have the bread separately griddled may be denied during the morning rush at your local café, you could add some crispy bacon or vegetables to your breakfast sandwich for a quicker upgrade.
