Hold your hats Montreal because we've found the world greatest breakfast sandwich ever created. While most sandwiches are satisfied with just layering delicious food items on top of each other, this one is literally stuffed with pure happiness.
Introducing the Stuffed Bacon Egg and Cheese Waffle Sandwich. And it solves the biggest problem sandwiches have which is: staying assembled. Too many times I've been eating a sandwich only to have pieces of it fall out every time I take a bite. Not all sandwiches are created equal and this one guards your food like a Roman Centurion. The best part is, you can eat this with one hand which means you have free hand to hold a 2nd sandwich. Score! and if you're feeling adventurous dip it in maple syrup, you won't regret it.
Here's how you can make your own Stuffed Bacon Egg and Cheese Waffle Sandwich. (Yes, you'll need a waffle maker, unless you're a wizard Harry.)
Scramble your eggs and cook you bacon. Cut your biscuits open without separating the two halves. Place the opened biscuit on your waffle iron and add the rest of your ingredients inside. Make sure the biscuit dough is fully sealed around the egg cheese and bacon and close your waffle iron without crushing the biscuits.
Baguette Brochette (aka BB) is set to open its second location on September 4 in Saint-Henri.
When it first opened in the Plateau in September 2019, BB brought a taste of Africa to the streets of Montreal, using recipes and spice mixes from the Ivory Coast mixed in with a classic French baguette. BB also brought Montrealers homemade sauces, spices, juices and other Northern African dishes.
They even offer vegan and halal options.
Despite opening less than a year before the start of the pandemic, it has quickly become a Montreal staple for its great food and amazing vibes.
On the second anniversary of the original location opening, the BB team told MTL Blog it's proud to open itsdoors in another one of the city's tastiest neighbourhoods.
"After searching a lot, we thought Saint-Henri would be the best place to have the BB 2," owner Jad Ezzeddine told MTL Blog.
"It is our way to come to you, as you guys always came back to us. And of course, we love to expand and share more African tastes and vibes around Montreal."

Why You Need To Go: If you haven't tried these sandwiches yet, you have no idea what you're missing!
Nevski's khachapuri, a Georgian cheese bread dish, is made with homemade dough and a mix of cheeses, topped with a runny egg yolk — and the restaurant's menu even teaches you how to eat it.
Its Moscow mule menu, four different takes on the classic drink — made with different spirits, ginger beer, fruit syrups and citrus — even offers mules by the pitcher for $29. There's also an extensive cocktail menu with 10 other Russian-themed options, and a few other pitcher options available for the same price.
Nevski also has a menu of dumplings stuffed with different meats, herbs and vegetables.
Though the menu also offers Russian-inspired desserts, you can also satisfy your sweet tooth with a boozy milkshake menu made with Russian ice cream, milk, Russian waffles, and vodka, Kahlua, whisky and Amaretto.
With so much alcohol on the menu, it's hard to choose your preferred drink — Nevski also offers a wide-range vodka menu, which you can enjoy with a side of bread and pickles in true Russian form, along with a wine and beer list.
Cuisine: Russian and former Soviet republics
Address: 1228, rue Stanley, Montreal, QC
Why You Need To Go: Eat and drink like a Russian, surrounded by artsy kitschy decor inspired by the streets of Saint Petersburg.

Though you don't need to be a professional actor, the company is looking for outgoing Montrealers who are regulars at a sandwich restaurant in Montreal. Only Canadian citizens or permanent residents of Canada can apply.
Auditions for "Project Sandwich Montreal" will be held online on July 16 and the shoot will take place on a day between July 23 and 27.
If selected, sandwich-lovers have to take a COVID-19 test on July 20 or 21, so you'd need to keep both dates open until the test is booked.
Those who get hired will make $75 for a wardrobe appointment, $75 for a COVID-19 test, and $750 for one day of filming. If your footage is used in the final commercial, you'd receive an additional $1,500 to $2,000.
