New items include a Trail Mix bagel made with whole grains, and a new vegetarian Panini called the Roasted Veggie Melt. The new Veggie Melt is served on Bruegger’s Honey Wheat Bread, with roasted peppers, tomatoes, and onions. Bruegger’s is also featuring a Roast Beef and Veggie Melt.
“We love these new Panini Sandwiches,” says Chef Philip Smith. “They offer an amazing amount of flavor and are unlike anything else that we currently offer.”
The Trail Mix bagel will be featured in Bruegger’s new “Baker’s Choice” pairings. Taking a cue from food and wine pairings popular at fine-dining establishments, Smith will bring his own creativity to the breakfast version—pairing bagel, cream cheese, and coffee combinations. Throughout the year, Smith will also be polling the bakers at all of the local Bruegger’s locations to get their ideas for future pairings.
The Trail Mix Bagel is paired with Bruegger’s new Strawberry Yogurt Cream Cheese Spread and Rain Forest Nut coffee, a Fair Trade Certified blend from Green Mountain Coffee.
“We think these three items taste great together and want to recommend the great flavors to our guests,” Smith says.
