A Sandwich a Day: 'Mixed Chopped' at SCRATCHbread

A Sandwich a Day

A new sandwich every day.

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.

SCRATCHbread in Bed-Stuy may be known primarily as a bakery, but they now sell quite an impressive menu of stuffed breads, salads, and other edibles from their streetside walkup window. Here's the open-faced "Mixed Chopped" ($5) sandwich. The rich, mustardy egg salad tops a leaf of raw kale and a thick piece of crusty bread, with kale pesto on top and breadcrumbs for crunch. A little sprinkle of chili flakes adds heat. Nothing too complicated, but certainly more interesting than most egg salads out there.
