Pretzel Roll Breakfasts at the Dutch Country Farmers Market

Egg, bacon and American cheese -- wrapped in pretzel dough and baked until crisp outside and warm inside.

That's a reason to stop one Saturday morning at the Dutch Country Farmers Market in Burtonsville. Eat while you walk the market and see what other foods you want to bring home.

Lydianne's Soft Pretzels sells a variety of pretzel rolls, including steak and ham, and they're actually delicious. Normally, I prefer egg-and-bacon without cheese precisely because a dollop of American cheese ruins too many great breakfast sandwiches. But the pretzel dough is so good that I would have gone back for a second except that my roll was a butter-dipped breakfast. (Next time, I'm going to wait for them to come out of the oven and ask for one before it gets the butter bath.)

(Update: The Dutch Country Farmers Market moved to Laurel in September 2009.)

Burtonsville, MD

NEAR: The Dutch market is at the intersection of Rte 198 and Columbia Pike. This is a block west of Rte 29. From Howard County, take the first exit in Montgomery County. You'll go around a traffic circle at the top of the exit ramp, and then you'll ride down the old Rte 29 past Meadows Farms nursery. The market is in the shopping center on the right just before the intersection with Rte 198.
