The team from Adam­son Bar­be­cue on Toronto’s ul­ti­mate break­fast sand­wiches

What bet­ter way to wake up than with a ba­con break­fast sand­wich? So we asked the team be­hind T.O.’s new Texas BBQ hotspot Adam­son Bar­be­cue, Adam Skelly and Ali­son Hunt, to taste-test the city’s top morn­ing sam­mies. From peameal to poached eggs, which ’wic

Peameal per­fec­tion

CAROUSEL, 93 FRONT ST. E., UNIT 42, $6.45 “With the deli Di­jon on there, we know where this one’s from. It has to be the St. Lawrence Mar­ket spe­cial. There are so many lay­ers of meat, and it’s a clas­sic Toronto break­fast sand­wich even though there’s no egg,” says Skelly. Hunt agrees, adding, “This one is re­ally sim­ple, and sim­ple is good.”

The best ba­con

MCEWAN, 38 KARL FRASER RD., $7.99 “I’m feel­ing this one. That’s a good smoky ba­con on there. A nice ripe tomato. It’s re­ally soggy from the yoke, but it’s a good crois­sant,” says Skelly. Hunt agrees and says, “This one is def­i­nitely a bit messy, but the ba­con adds a re­ally nice smoky flavour that the oth­ers didn’t have.”

Deep-fried de­li­cious

STOCKYARDS, 699 ST. CLAIR AVE. W., $8 “Deep-fried poached eggs would’ve been a lot bet­ter fresh, but they are still re­ally good. The ba­con is good too. It’s nice and thick,” says Hunt. “That’s true,” says Skelly, and adds, “The bis­cuit is ac­tu­ally re­ally good, and the ba­con is tasty. There’s a gen­er­ous por­tion of ba­con on there.”

Grid­dled and glo­ri­ous

SKY BLUE SKY SAND­WICH COM­PANY, 605 BLOOR ST. W., $6.49 “This is one of my favourites. It has good bal­ance with the toma­toes adding some fresh­ness, and the av­o­cado adds a creamy tex­ture like a sauce, and it’s held to­gether be­cause it was grid­dled,” says Skelly. Hunt says, “This one is good, and the ba­con adds a good salti­ness, though it wasn’t evenly dis­trib­uted.”

Scram­bled sen­sa­tion

BAR CENTRALE, 1095 YONGE ST., $12 “Fancy!” says Hunt about the pro­sciutto and scram­bled egg sand­wich on a crois­sant. “I like this one. The crois­sant is good, and the pro­sciutto is re­ally nice on it,” she adds. Skelly agrees and says, “It’s a lot of scram­bled eggs, a good por­tion. Over­all, it tastes re­ally good.”

But­ter­milk bis­cuit

EMMA’S COUN­TRY KITCHEN, 810 ST. CLAIR AVE. W., $7 “This one is bet­ter than I thought it would be. The home­made bis­cuit is re­ally good. It just needs a touch of sauce or tomato,” says Hunt. Skelly agrees and says, “The egg is still a nice over easy, and the bis­cuit is re­ally good. Over­all it just needs some sauce or some­thing juicy.”
