Breakfast comes in many different shapes and sizes, but the king of them all is the breakfast sandwich. It rules over the realm of morning meals, incorporating whatever ingredients it damn well pleases. The only bounds it knows are its book-ending slabs of carbohydrates.
The breakfast sandwich is thus a powerful canvas for creativity (and bacon!), but also a perfect vessel in which to deliver a concentrated combo of traditional AM ingredients (especially bacon!). To celebrate this great unifier of eggs, cheese, and other stuff, we've compiled a list of the 21 very best breakfast sandwiches in the country. You can thank us after your mid-morning nap.
