Sexy Green Truck Breakfast Sandwich

30 06 2009

This competition is getting tough. I have discovered some very simple rules to even getting your breakfast sandwich considered: 1. You must serve eggs and 2. You must be open. Yesterday I briefly stopped at the Bagel Hut on Montgomery and their breakfast sandwiches had only meat and cheese. No egg. No thanks. Then I remembered that my student worker told me that Starbucks has actually started serving very yummy breakfast sandwiches with multi-grain muffins, egg whites, and turkey bacon for $3. I was intrigued so I swung by the Starbucks on campus. It was closed at 7:45 am. Fail!

That’s OK. I had a third backup: The Sexy Green Truck that I frequent for lunch. The Sexy Green Truck started last year as an alternative to the ho-hum greasy fatty foods that most other trucks make. The SGT, although not vegetarian, boasts all local and organic ingredients. And this makes me happy. Even the eggs are happy!

I ordered my usual bacon egg and cheese, but because I can feel the past few weeks of sandwich in the pit of my stomach and dimples in my thighs, I chose a “healthier” Carbohydrate Delivery System: white toast.  That may have been the mistake that gave this sandwich its score. But it was cut in half!  Right on.sexy green truck 003

The overall flavor was fresh and tasty–and happy.  It really did taste happy. Like something your momma could make. I wish that the toast had been lightly buttered on the inside because it was a bit dry.sexy green truck 004

Look at that egg tuckage!  A perfect 10! sexy green truck 006

The bacon was the best: a bit charred, salty, slightly crispy, slightly chewy–perfect! Like it was cut right from the pig that morning.sexy green truck 008

The cheese: great quality, great taste, but not quite enough quantity. The happy eggs were fluffy and gently browned.sexy green truck 009

The fillings went all the way through.  By my last bite, I had just as much egg and bacon and cheese as my first.sexy green truck 013

One last thought on salt pepper ketchup–they didn’t mention it, I didn’t ask for it, I didn’t get it, and I didn’t need it.

Yum. This looks like a good one. I have had the Starbucks breakfast sandwiches and I will say that they are pretty good. I think you should definitely consider trying one.

Well if it would open earlier on campus I would…it’s a coffee shop for breakfast’s sake!
