Six great Las Vegas breakfast sandwiches

Make your morning better with these local bites

The invention of the breakfast sandwich was something of a fast-food revolution, a cheap and convenient way to tackle the most stressful meal of a busy day. But English muffins or faux-croissants stuffed with eggs and served from drive-thru windows might not be the best way to start your morning. Slow down and enjoy breakfast, starting with these artfully composed and utterly delicious sandwich creations.

      Waffle sandwich at Bread & Butter

      More a tower than a sandwich, this favorite requires fork-and-knife action due to decadent drizzles of gravy and maple syrup. Order yours with turkey or ham on fresh waffles, melting cheddar and soft-scrambled eggs, forming a truly memorable morning meal. $10.95. 10940 S. Eastern Ave., 675-3300.

      Fried egg sandwich at ’Wichcraft

      Though ’Wichcraft is an offshoot of Tom Colicchio’s NYC sandwich shops, all the offerings here reflect his philosophy of letting the best ingredients shine without excessive celebration. Tangy blue cheese finds a delicious dancing partner in bacon, and runny egg mingles with frisée and saturates a chewy-soft ciabatta roll. $8.50. MGM Grand, 891-3166. Daily, 10 a.m.-5 p.m. –BR

      Scone-wich at Layers Bakery

      This deceptively simple sandwich, consisting of a fried egg snuggled inside a house-baked scone, is rife with meaty goodness. Specific selections vary depending on when you go, from turkey sausage to smoked cheddar and sage. $6.95. 665 S. Green Valley Parkway, 221-2253; 6496 Medical Center St., 795-2253. Daily during breakfast hours, 8-11 a.m. –JB

      Bacon Jalapeño PBJ at Border Grill

Mandalay Bay, 632-7403. Saturday & Sunday, 10 a.m.-3 p.m. –JB

      Skinny Lulu at Lulu’s Bread & Breakfast

      Breakfast sandwiches tend to be greasy and guilt-inducing; it doesn’t have to be that way. Lulu’s offers a variety of egg sandwiches on soft, freshly baked rolls, including this one with grilled asparagus, Pecorino Romano cheese and roasted red pepper pesto sauce. You’ll never eat a McMuffin again. $6. 6720 Sky Pointe Drive, 437-5858. Daily, 7 a.m.-4 p.m. –BR
