Sriracha + Bruegger’s bagel + Boo~Kies’s = Win

Sriracha + bruegger's bagel + Boo~Kies's = Win

Sriracha + bruegger's bagel + Boo~Kies's = Win

Dilemma:

  1. Bruegger’s Bagels – Doesn’t have “real” bacon or eggs.
  2. Boo~Kie’s – Doesn’t have bagels
  3. Sriracha Hot Sauce – Elevates sandwiches

The obvious solution is to combine a Bruegger’s bagel (wheat pictured) with an egg / bacon / cheese  from Boo~Kies (shown with optional hashbrown), with Sriracha (AKA Rooster) sauce.

This is a winning formula… all for around $3.50 (plus a bottle of Sriracha, $3.99 @ City Market).

Unfortunately this post is a little tardy, Boo~Kies’s cart appears to be done for the season, hit him up next spring.

Kountry Kart Deli – Philly Shiner Sandwich

Kountry Kart Deli - Burlington, Vermont

Kountry Kart Deli - Burlington, Vermont

Kountry Kart Deli on Main Street in Burlington Vermont is a late night munchie classic.  Drunken from the bars will fill KKD to capacity shortly after the 2am last call; sandwich chaos ensues.

But they’re also open for lunch. I’ve been lunching on KKD’s Philly on French bread, so when I noticed the “Shiner Philly” I decided to try it (sans French bread as the circumference of the hash brown would likely cause severe over-hang).

KKD is known for their “Risers” and “Shiners”; a shiner being a deep-fried hash-brown / egg / meat breakfast themed sandwich.  I couldn’t resist trying collaboration of the Shiner Philly. The hash-brown is nicely fried, and has a satisfying crunch.  The egg is real, the steak and cheese is good.  I which there were more steak, I may ask for “extra Philly” when ordering this sandwich in the future.  I should have ordered it with the trifecta of grilled onions, peppers, mushrooms. Also I didn’t enjoy eating two large hash-browns. I would recommend ordering this sandwich as a small, as to not kill exceed your hash-brown budget.

Speaking of budgets, this sandwich was $9.45 for large with tax, one of their more expensive sandwiches.  If you become a frequenter of KKD, grab one of their “sandwich cards.”

Henry Street Deli Mart – Coffee & Breakfast sandwich

Henry Street Market - Burlington Vermont

Henry Street Deli Mart is located coincidently on Henry Street in Burlington Vermont. Its close proximity to UVM makes this hidden gem a favorite of students. HSM used to known for not having anything on the shelves, it almost seemed like a cover operation for something else. They NOW have charcoal in the summer, a full deli featuring local McKenzie meat, American FlatbreadLa Panciata bakery bread, nice selection of beer and wine thanks to the new owner.

Excellent coffee is served fresh before 8AM from Vermont Artisan Coffee company, a “small” 12oz? is $1.25, a “large” 16oz is $1.50.

Since the geese are flying south:

The coffee makes a nice hand warmer, in addition to its good taste.

For $2.70 you get either Mckenzie Bacon, Mackenzie sausage, veggie sausage, with egg and your choice of cheese on a toasted English muffin. While this is a bit pedestrian, I sometimes crave a little bacon in the morning and don’t have time to do a little cooking in the morning, and this sandwich it cooked well. The bacon and muffin are crisp, the egg is not over cooked with a hint of butter, I like to order Swiss with mine.

Final note: HSM used to carry Dinky Donuts, but I guess DD flew south (like the geese) to Middlebury.
