Bagel leader's new menu items to feature whole grains; vegetarian options
DALLAS, TX, March 10, 2010 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Bruegger's Bagels has always served wholesome, authentic and freshly baked breads and bagels. With spring on its way, the bakery chain will add even more freshness to its menu.
Starting March 10, the 292-unit bagel chain will meet customer demand for fresh, healthful foods, including a Trail Mix bagel made with whole grains and a new vegetarian panini called the Roasted Veggie Melt.
With the new panini, guests can eat their veggies -- and love every minute of it. The new Veggie Melt is served on Bruegger's freshly made Honey Wheat Bread, with roasted peppers, tomatoes, and onions. For those whose tastes stray to the heartier side, Bruegger's is also featuring a Roast Beef and Veggie Melt.
"We love these new Panini Sandwiches," says Chef Philip Smith, "they offer an amazing amount of flavor and are unlike anything else that we currently offer."
The new Trail Mix bagel will be featured in Bruegger's new "Baker's Choice" pairings. Taking a cue from food and wine pairings popular at fine dining establishments, "head baker" Smith will bring his own creativity to the breakfast version - pairing bagel, cream cheese and coffee combinations. Throughout the year, Smith will also be polling the bakers at all of the local Bruegger's locations to get their ideas for future pairings.
Bruegger's new Trail Mix Bagel is paired for perfection with Bruegger's new Strawberry Yogurt Cream Cheese Spread and Rain Forest Nut(R) coffee, a Fair Trade CertifiedTM blend from Green Mountain Coffee.
"We think these three items taste great together and want to recommend the great flavors to our guests," says Smith.
