Customers can now spice up their mornings at Bruegger’s Bagels with the introduction of a new breakfast sandwich full of heat.

The Chorizo Jalapeno Egg Sandwich features two fresh-cracked eggs, chorizo sausage, cheddar cheese, avocado, and a jalapeno cream cheese on a jalapeno bagel. If the sandwich is a little too hot, it can be paired with a cool drink such as an iced coffee.

“Consumer research shows that interest in bold flavors continues to grow, so we're really bringing on the heat with the Chorizo Jalapeno Egg Sandwich,” says Bruegger’s Bagels executive chef Chad Thompson. “The Jalapeno Bagel incorporates peppers within the dough. Then it’s kettle-boiled and baked to perfection, creating an eggshell crust and chewy interior – it's the perfect bagel to pair with spicy Mexican chorizo sausage and our 100% made-in-Vermont Jalapeno Cream Cheese. Avocado also adds a cool contrast.”

Bruegger’s has also brought back its heart-shaped bagels for Mother’s Day. Customers can preorder heart-shaped plain, blueberry, or cinnamon raisin bagels by the dozen for Mother’s Day pickup now through Saturday, May 11, and can pick individual bagels up in-store through Sunday, May 12.
