As a student from USC, one must know (or at least heard of) the delicacy known as the Breakfast Sandwich or “B Sammie” as it has come to be known. From 1/2 to 5/6, anyone with money in his/her lunch account can go down to the cafeteria and indulge in what is arguably the school’s most famous dish. As a frequent indulger of the sandwich myself, it is hard to keep bias out of this, but the breakfast sandwich is the best thing in Upper St. Clair since Sean Lee. Even as I write, all I can think about is that American cheese, sausage, egg, and double hash wedged into the middle of a bagel and dipped into hot sauce before entering my mouth.

 

A Twitter poll, which I posted myself, asked what students like most about their sandwich. 3% of poll volunteers favored the egg, another 3% favored the cheese, 15% favored the sausage, and the majority – 79% – favored the hash. And, many other eaters claim bacon and the bagel to be the sammie’s heart and soul, but the study still proves that hash browns make the B Sammie what it is, a finding with which I wholeheartedly (or mouthedly) agree.

 

I asked USC chorus singer and track athlete Chase Banton what he thought of the breakfast sandwich. He said, “Some mornings at 5/6, I feel the rumbles in my tummy that require the beautiful combo of the breakfast sammie. At times the mere thought of having a breakfast sandwich is what keeps me going though 1/2 and 3/4. I always pack a lunch; the breakfast sandwich is the one food in school I have to eat at least once a week. So basically, I need the breakfast sandwich in my life. Michelle Obama better back off from Chase’s breakfast sandwiches or I will lead a peaceful rebellion against any who oppose the sandwich.”
I think it is only fair to say that the zeal expressed by Chase is reasonable; Michelle Obama already has a negative connotation in the USC cafeteria after the Curly Fry Debacle of 2014. As long as the breakfast sandwich stays on the menu at USC, then its regulars will be ever satiated by the succulence it provides. If you have not yet tried the B sammie or do not feel like yourself in the morning at school, then do yourself a favor and ask your teacher if you can go treat yourself to great wonder that is the breakfast sandwich.
