On the search for the best breakfast sandwich in Connecticut brings us to Mr. Mac’s Canteen in Milford and Monroe.

The breakfast sandwich here is an extraordinarily standard breakfast sandwich.

No special sauces, no special cooking techniques.

So why is this good?

First, everything is done right.

The eggs are cooked but not crispy on the bottom.

The cheese is present but neither overpowering nor overpowered.

The bacon has a solid flavor and is griddle-cooked, not deep fried or soggy.

The star of the show is the bread.

Portuguese rolls.

Portuguese sweet bread.

Papo seco.

Call it what you will, these rolls are surprisingly common in Connecticut where they are rare or absent in anywhere else in the U.S. but places with lots of Portuguese immigrants.

The bread is a bit dry, but that plays off the sweetness and gooeyness of the cheese.

Together, it is probably among the best standard representations of a bacon egg and cheese in CT.

Nothing special or breathtaking, just what you want it to do in the right way.

Maybe ask for extra cheese?

The rating:

The portuguese roll elevates all the very well done elements of a standard bacon egg and cheese to new heights.
