BURLINGTON, Vt. - Sept. 17, 2014 – Bruegger's Bagels, known for its freshly baked, authentic New York-style bagels, wholesome ingredients and signature coffees, celebrates fall with anew menu that features seasonal must-haves and all-American fare.
One of fall's most popular flavors is pumpkin, and Pumpkin Bagels and Pumpkin Cream Cheese, both made with real pumpkin, make their annual return to the menu. Also coming back is Pumpkin Spice Coffee, made with cinnamon, nutmeg and other spices.
The fall menu also features the debut of Bagel Burgers, tested earlier this year in Boston and Minneapolis. Both the Barnyard Burger, topped with a fresh-cracked egg, cheddar cheese and secret sauce on an Asiago Parmesan bagel, and the Bistro Burger, with cheddar cheese,secret sauce, lettuce, tomato and pickled onions on the guest's choice of bagel, proved extremely popular in the two-city test and are now offered on the menu at most of Bruegger's Bagels locations across the country.
"Our new menu is a great representation of what our guests have come to love at Bruegger's Bagels – our unique spin on tradition mixed with longtime seasonal favorites," said Bruegger's Bagels Vice President of Marketing Judy Kadylak. "Our Bagel Burgers are a fresh take on the American classic, while our popular pumpkin items are a yearly tradition."
Bruegger's Bagels is also spotlighting pastrami on its fall breakfast and lunch menus. The Pastrami, Egg & Swiss sandwich is served on a Pumpernickel bagel for a classic deli taste, while the Pastrami & Everything sandwich combines pastrami, Muenster cheese, brown mustard,pickles, lettuce and tomato on an Everything bagel. (Any bagel variety can be substituted on sandwiches.)
