While I’m writing today I decided to quick throw some love out there for M&R Deli in Mount Kisco NY, which is my all-time favorite deli. I’ll even go so far as to say that Rocky’s (Millwood) can’t even come close.
M&R for me is a local landmark, and I spent much of my teen years waking up at what (at the time) seemed like an ungodly hour to drive to Kisco for for an M&R egg sandwich before the grill closed at noon. They have a wide variety of all the regular staples that you can find at pretty much all of the area delis, but over the years they have had an increasingly gourmet twist. But to be honest, the shining star of M&R is the egg sandwich, which is so good that when I go home I can’t bear to get anything else.
So here it is, the last deli breakfast sandwich you should ever want to eat:
If you’re looking to order it, it’s double-egg-potato-mozzarella-salt-pepper-ketchup. Because I was sharing this one with my boyfriend at the time, we got Bacon on the side and added it to his half.
I’ve been eating this sandwich for almost fifteen years and have never had a bad one. The eggs are beaten and cooked flat on the griddle before being folded into sandwich size; they are always light and never rubbery or overcooked. The hash brown patty has a lovely crispness to it. An indecent number of mozzarella slices melted on top ooze stringy goodness everywhere, binding the sandwich together (and often also onto the paper it’s wrapped in). The kaiser rolls are always perfectly fresh, crusty on the outside and pillowy on the inside. Try it, you’ll never want to eat anything else.
