Bacon & Queso Egg Sandwich

Einstein Bros. Bagels Brings Queso to the Breakfast Table with New Bacon & Queso Egg Sandwich

Launches Sept. 16th, Just in time for National Queso Day

LAKEWOOD, Colo. (Sept. 9, 2021) — If you need an excuse to eat delicious, ooey-gooey, spicy-melty cheese in the morning, this is it. Einstein Bros. Bagels continues to innovate the most important meal of the day with queso for breakfast! The Bacon & Queso Egg Sandwich will be available starting Sept. 16, ahead of National Queso Day on Sept. 20.

The Bacon & Queso Egg Sandwich features Einstein Bros. signature queso, updating a classic queso recipe to include double-whipped Jalapeno Salsa Shmear and spicy green chiles. With a kick that will wake up your tastebuds, the sandwich also includes smoked Applewood bacon and seasoned cage-free eggs cooked to perfection, all stacked on a fresh-baked bagel of the guests’ choice.

“Everyone loves queso, but until now, it has stayed off the breakfast table – for no good reason,” said Chef Chad Thompson, Head of Culinary Innovation at Einstein Bros. Bagels. “Queso fans are going to love the pairing of our signature queso with a classic bacon and egg bagel sandwich, giving them plenty of options when they walk into an Einstein Bros. Bagels bakery.”

The Bacon & Queso Egg Sandwich from Einstein Bros. Bagels is available at participating locations, excluding license stores inside colleges, airports, hotels and hospitals. For more information about the Bacon & Queso Egg Sandwich, or any of the other fresh, tasty breakfast sandwiches, visit
