|Sandwiches from Bon Fresco|
It took an Easter special at Bon Fresco Sandwich Bakery to make me post again about how great they make their regular sandwiches and breads. Every day, you can pick up greatness in cold cuts, grilled vegetables, London broil, and other flavors. Or you can pick up a baguettes, focaccia, and even Friday challah for your own menus.

You're just not going to get better sandwiches anywhere. It's a small menu. It hasn't changed much if I remember right. But it's all delicious -- corned beef, grilled vegetables, real sliced turkey. . . The potato salad comes with tender potato and just enough mild binder to stay together.
The Easter special was a bit unusual. They baked an actual Easter egg into a loaf of bread shaped like a basket. The bread is slightly sweet like the challah and glazed with spinkles. Catnip for a food blogger. Maybe an exotic treat for a kid who likes bread and eggs? They were $3.75 Saturday. I don't know if they were a lark or something that Bon Fresco is trying out for the season.
If you're working in Howard County, you should add it to your lunch repertoire. If you're looking for a break, you should stop by on a weekend -- just a short run from your errand at Lowe's, Home Depot, Target, etc. If you're a food blogger, you shouldn't take Bon Fresco for granted. All my old posts are true, but I'm going to hunt for new favorites on the menu.
My one Bon Fresco wish is that they try a bahn mi sandwich. It seems right up their alley -- maybe some roasted pork, pickled vegetables, cilantro, cukes and hot peppers. Until then, use Bon Fresco's baguette to make something amazing with Andrea Nguyen's recipe.

NEAR: Bon Fresco is in the shopping center on Oakland Mills Road at Snowden River Parkway. The center with Race Pace bike shop and a Ledo Pizza overlooks Snowden, but you need to turn onto Oakland Mills at the intersection and turn right into the shopping center. Bon Fresco is in the out-building just to the right of the entrance. Nazar Market is right across the parking lot.
