Bruegger's Bagels' Summer Menu Line-Up is Hot, Cool and Sweet
Innovative new items include Sriracha Egg Sandwich, Morning Glory Bagel and new salads.
BURLINGTON, VT - May 08, 2013 /24-7PressRelease/ - Today, Bruegger's Bagels, known for its authentic, New York-style bagels baked fresh in each of its bakeries, introduces a new summer menu unlike any others before with new flavors that are at once bold, spicy, sweet and savory.
Executive Chef Philip Smith added completely new flavors and ingredients to the menu this season, reflecting the bagel bakery's commitment to menu items that are flavorful and on trend while staying true to what keeps guests coming back every day.
The innovative menu items - available today in all 300-plus bagel bakeries - include:
- The Sriracha Egg Sandwich is Bruegger's Bagels' first new egg sandwich featuring Sriracha sauce, the versatile and addictive sweet, hot chili sauce named the "coolest condiment on the table" by The Huffington Post. The spicy new sandwich is available all day and is made on a plain bagel (or the guest's choice of any of Bruegger's 15+ varieties of authentic New York-style bagels) with egg, sausage, cheddar cheese, fresh red peppers and perfectly finished with a kick of Sriracha sauce. The unique taste of the Vietnamese-inspired sauce, which is a combination of red chilies, vinegar and sugar, is also available upon request on other Bruegger's Bagels menu items.
- The bakery is also mixing up its bagel varieties with the unique Morning Glory Bagel, a wonderful burst of sweet flavors. Great for breakfast or an afternoon treat, the newest bagel flavor is sheer indulgence, with apple butter folded into the simple bagel dough, along with shredded carrots, raisins, sunflower seeds and cinnamon. For a taste evocative of a traditional Morning Glory muffin, Chef Smith suggests topping this bagel with Bruegger's Bagel's plain cream cheese. But many of the bakery's cream cheese flavors - all 100 percent made-in-Vermont - complement the bagel with its combination of fruit and flavor.
- Two all-new salads and complementary dressings round out Bruegger's Bagels new lunch line-up. The Blue Apple Salad, made on a bed of spring lettuce, is served with Bruegger's Bagels new Champagne Vinaigrette dressing, which complements the sweet combination of chicken, dried cranberries, sliced almonds and diced apples, topped with blue cheese crumbles. Guests who want something more savory can choose the Chicken Almond Salad, tossed with diced chicken, almonds, cucumber, Asiago cheese and chopped red bell pepper, a new addition to the bakery chain's list of fresh ingredients. The salad will be topped with a new Tangy Olive Oil dressing made with olive oil, feta cheese and red wine.
The limited-time offerings are available through Sept. 10.
