The Bagelrito Is the Craziest New Breakfast Mashup Out There
The Einstein Bros. creation is essentially a wrapped-up version of a breakfast sandwich on a toasted bagel. But if you're intrigued by the concept, there's some bad news: As of right now, it's only available in five stores.
What is the Einstein Bros. Bagelrito?
The sandwich features eggs, turkey sausage, bacon, cheese, hash browns, chilies, and salsa, all baked inside of a bagel. There's an extra layer of carbs, too: The whole thing is wrapped in a tortilla and then baked in bagel dough. So, essentially, it truly is a burrito inside a bagel, hence the product name.
Where can you get the Bagelrito?
Unfortunately, if you're not in Colorado, you're out of luck. The five Einstein Bros. locations serving the Bagelrito are in Westminster, two stores in Lakewood, Denver, and Littleton.
But if you do happen to live in one of these test markets, there's a great incentive for trying the new breakfast creation. If you buy a Bagelrito on Friday, when it debuts in stores, you'll get a coupon for a free egg sandwich. Getting to try the new creation and getting another meal out of it? Now that's a win-win.
The Bagelrito isn't the first time Einstein Bros. has ventured into categories outside of traditional bagels. Last May, the chain offered a mac and cheese bagel, which is pretty much what it sounds like: a bagel with real mac and cheese baked into the top. There were even new breakfast sandwich options designed to pair well with the cheesy bagels. So, yeah, the new Bagelrito isn't totally out of left field for the brand.
And if you don't happen to live in Colorado, don't feel too heartbroken about the news. There's always the possibility that if customers in the test markets love the burrito-bagel mashup, it could go nationwide. Until then, there are always regular bagel sandwiches (and breakfast burritos) to enjoy.
