Sometimes on a Friday we have a special start to the day and treat ourselves to breakfast sandwiches. Greggs is pretty close to where we work, so we know the menu well, and go there often enough to have coffee loyalty cards. ;-)
New on the menu is this Omelette Breakfast Roll, which is exciting for a number of reasons. Firstly it means that there is now a vegetarian option breakfast roll on the menu at Greggs. Secondly omelette sandwiches are awesome. I used to work in central Birmingham near a cafe that sold omelette sandwiches, and I absolutely fell in love with them. There is just something so right about about egg and bread.
Obviously I gave the Greggs version a try the first opportunity I had, another colleague joined me and some others went for the usual bacon / sausage choices. The breakfast rolls are just £2 and come with a hot drink, which is good value in my opinion.
Once we were back at our desks I unwrapped my omelette breakfast roll. There were a few slices of omelette, inside the bread, and it looked fairly generously filled. There was more than you can see in the picture.
I tucked in and the wonderful flavours of seasoned eggy goodness were just heaven. I thoroughly enjoyed every mouthful. the roll was perfect too, lovely soft and white. There is no risky yolk to ruin your top, just egg in its safest format. I sipped my coffee and asked my colleague what she thought of hers. She wasn’t so impressed, she said hers was a bit salty and that she’d rather have a sausage one next week. You can’t win them all, but I was totally taken by it. I know what I’m having next time.
