I’ve always been a breakfast person. And I don’t limit traditional breakfast items to before noon. Some of my favorite pregnant snacks were yogurt & cereal.

In the past, I sat down & had {usually} cereal every morning before work. Occasionally Eggos or bagels if we were lucky enough to have the pantry stocked. Yummy items like homemade waffles, pancakes, eggs & French toast were reserved for lazy weekend mornings.

These days there are rarely ‘lazy’ anythings. Especially not mornings. I’m doing good if I’m throwing back cereal while nursing or packing my lunch or waking up a kiddo. And a Quaker banana nut soft baked bar with a banana {easily thrown in my purse while running out the door} are my mid-morning favorite.

But I do pass a Bruegger’s Bagels on my way into work. {& thankfully also a Kangaroo express for the 25 cent diet coke Roo cup refill!}

Bruegger’s has always been a lunch/brunch favorite since NCSU college days. I got hooked on the Herby Turkey sandwich {on an asiago Parmesan softwich please}. I rarely deviate from my order. But if you recall, I partied with the executive chef Smith for their 30th anniversary & realized limiting myself to my beloved sun dried tomato spread wasn’t doing me any favors.

I’ve recently stopped by the Bruegger’s across from work for a to-go breakfast sandwich {with bagels for snack & the next day in tow} & on another occasion for lunch. While I admittedly got my beloved Herby Turkey for lunch, I did switch it up & also try one of chef Smith’s new salads too. I loved the sweet tangy taste of the blue apple salad.

The new Sriracha Egg sandwich kick started my morning.

I went with an asiago Parmesan bagel versus the traditional plain bagel & as I said on instagram, holy flavor party in my mouth. I loved the spicy chili sauce!

The following morning, husband & I both enjoyed the Morning Glory bagel with cream cheese. It has a perfect sweet flavor & for busy moms like myself, can be fairly neatly eaten in the van on the way to work!

I was sent coupons so that I could try Brueggers new summer menu items for purpose of this review. I wasn’t otherwise compensated. Nor were my ravings on their new menu persuaded by their generosity.
