7 of the Best Bacon, Egg, and Cheeses Around Westchester

Salty, yolky, cheesy, and handheld, it’s the quintessential Tri-State-area breakfast.

An $8.75 B.E.C. barely qualifies as “cheap eats,” but the version at John Boy’s The Outpost (Bedford) is well worth it. The thick-cut, salty Berkshire bacon and fresh eggs come from John Boy’s Farm in Cambridge, NY, where livestock is humanely raised. Visit this 100% non-GMO country store for produce, meats, and more.

 

The Market On Spring (South Salem; www.marketonspring.com) is a backroad deli worth veering off Route 123 for. Their #3 is assembled with a fried organic egg (if you are a yolk fan, ask for it over-easy), just enough bacon, and gooey cheddar on buttery, lightly toasted brioche. The kicker? A smoky, homemade chipotle remoulade that’s so righteous, they could jar it.

 

If you blink, you’ll drive right by Dougie’s Standby (Port Chester), a tucked away greasy spoon that shares a parking lot with Carvel. Find it and order The Bomb. Oozing with American cheese, it’s the addition of home fries and spicy chili that set it apart. Recovering from a rough night? Here’s your remedy.

 

After a chic renovation, Cooked & Co. (Scarsdale; www.cookedandco.com) is back. The baked goods (Hello, Nutella muffin!) at the counter will catch your eye, but The Classic can go toe-to-toe with any B.E.C. around. The double-over-easy eggs make it one of Westchester’s yolkiest eruptions, so get your bib ready and wipe it all up with the sweet, buttery, delicate brioche it comes on.

One pork-stacked freak sandwich was making this list no matter what! Formerly Rocky’s, dive deli Heavy Bear (Yorktown Heights) knew to keep the legendary Super Wacky — all three morning meats (bacon, ham, sausage), double egg, cheese, and home fries on a poppy-seed roll — on the menu. There’s also a 2½-lb breakfast beast called the Super Bombero, if you dare…

 

High Ridge Bagels (Hartsdale), a busy bagel place on Central Avenue, draws a morning crowd, and if they’re not getting a dozen with a container of cream cheese for the office, they’re ordering a piled-high B.E.C. on soft, chewy bagels that don’t really need toasting. At $4.25, it won’t break the bank, so feel free to add on home fries or avocado.

 

Away from the downtown hustle, Rooster’s Market (White Plains), a mini neighborhood-grocery-store/deli, slings a solid breakfast-on-a-roll called The Roo, with double the eggs, plenty of crisp bacon, and cheese. Add a hash brown, ketchup, and hot sauce on that bad boy for a complete handheld breakfast.
