A Sandwich A Day: Soppressata and Egg at Beecher's Handmade Cheese
In this great city of ours, one could eat a different sandwich every day of the year—so that's what we'll do. Here's A Sandwich a Day, our daily look at sandwiches around New York. Got a sandwich we should check out? Let us know. —The Mgmt.
Egg sandwiches tend to be breakfast fare, but I'd be happy eating the Soppressata and Egg ($7) at Beecher's Handmade Cheese any time of day. And I don't know why I'd never thought of combining the two ingredients before. There's a good amount of soppressata, whose porky, spicy juices seep into the well-seasoned egg patty and crusty bread, and an oozy blanket of Beecher's own Flagship cheese tops it off: melty like Cheddar, but nuttier and tangy; rich and more complex than it tastes at first, it's an excellent pairing. Grilled and pressed, the bread takes on a nice crunch to cradle it all.
