US-based bakery café chain Bruegger’s Bagels has expanded its menu with the launch of Crispy Chicken & Tater sandwich line in breakfast and lunch variants.

Available for a limited time through 29 August this year, the sandwich line includes Crispy Chicken & Tater Egg Sandwich and Crispy Chicken & Tater Lunch Sandwich.

The breakfast menu item features Cheesy Hash Brown Bagel, which is made with a fresh-cracked egg, a crispy whole chicken breast and new hand-blended-in-bakery Country Pepper Cream Cheese.

Crispy Chicken & Tater Lunch Sandwich is a blend of crispy chicken breast, deli ingredients of cheddar cheese, lettuce, tomato, red onion and mayo and the Cheesy Hash Brown Bagel.

Cheesy Hash Brown Bagel featured in both items is made with potato dough topped with golden hash browns and a blend of cheese.

Bruegger’s Bagels president Leigh Anne Snider said: “Our limited-time sandwiches and bagels bring innovative new flavours to our menu with the introduction of crispy chicken, hand-blended Country Pepper Cream Cheese and a premium, first-time bagel variety, the Cheesy Hash Brown Bagel.

“Not only is the new bagel the ideal base for the Crispy Chicken & Tater sandwiches, it also offers a delicious new way to enjoy any of our breakfast or lunch sandwiches.”

In addition to these limited-time menu items, the bakery chain is relaunching its seasonal Coconut Coffee available in hot or iced variants.

Bruegger’s Bagels is part of the quick-casual company Coffee & Bagel Brands and operates more than 220 bakeries across North America.
