Bruegger’s Bagels, known for its freshly baked, authentic New York-style bagels, signature egg sandwiches and artisanal coffees, spices up its winter menu with some of the year’s hottest flavor trends from around the globe and new twists on American classics.

For the first time in more than two years, Bruegger’s Bagels introduces an all-new variety to its 100 percent real made-in-Vermont cream cheese lineup. New Spicy Cheddar Pimiento, made with grated sharp cheddar, chopped pimiento peppers, jalapenos, garlic, onion and black pepper, adds a kick of spice and texture to any bagel or sandwich.

Turning up the heat a little more is the limited-time-only Spicy Bellapeno Egg sandwich, featuring a fresh-cracked egg, chorizo sausage and Spicy Cheddar Pimiento cream cheese, all piled high on the new Bellapeno bagel, made with red bell peppers and jalapenos.

Infusing international flavor into the classic Bruegger’s Bagels menu is the Mo Rockin’ turkey sandwich featuring harissa, a spicy, aromatic red pepper paste used in African and Middle Eastern cuisine. Bruegger’s Bagels mixes harissa with cool and creamy Greek yogurt, creating a distinctive, craveable flavor in concert with roasted turkey, Swiss cheese, fresh arugula, seasoned tomatoes and pickled red onions on toasted brioche bread.

“Our seasonal menu offers a culinary adventure that guests can enjoy for a hearty winter breakfast or lunch,” says Bruegger’s Bagels Vice President of Marketing Judy Kadylak. “We’re also bringing back seasonal favorites, like our French Toast coffee, which has the comforting flavor and aroma of buttered French toast with a touch of cinnamon, drizzled with maple syrup.”

The winter menu will be available through April 4 at participating Bruegger’s Bagels locations.
