JG Original: #TBT The Breakfast Dagwood

On this week’s throwback Thursday post we’re going to reminisce a little about the Breakfast Dagwood sandwich from Denny’s. A sandwich so iconic and delicious that people have made tribute videos…

and also dedicated a Facebook page in efforts to bring it back to the menu. I first discovered this bad boy around my senior year in high school back in 2003. It was so good that one by one I started putting all my friends onto it’s artery clogging glory, me and Jamiel actually turned it into a Christmas eve tradition for like 3 years in a row. Than just like my hairline it was snatched away from me far too soon. They’ve rolled out some other items similar to the Dagwood but they’ll never compare.

This beauty was named after Dagwood Bumstead from the Blondie comic strip. It was good any time but was the perfect late night / after the bar sandwich consisting of scrambled eggs with sausage in them, bacon,Canadian bacon, and cheese all on a toasted kaiser roll. Pair that with their seasoned french fries and you have yourself the most delicious heart burn sandwich around. I did some research and I can’t actually find a reason why they took it off the menu (one can only assume it was for health reasons) but I did find this while reading about the comic Dagwood sandwich from which it got it’s name:

  • Denny’s in the early 2000s offered their breakfast dagwood;[7] it was over a thousand calories worth of food.[8] It was later removed from their menu.

You read that right…over a 1,000 calories worth of food….and worth every single damn one. Salute to you Dagwood!
