Shake Shack's New Egg Sandwich Is Impossibly Fluffy

Of course it was invented by the Cronut king.



In New York City, a breakfast sandwich means a bacon, egg and cheese. But for two days this week, pastry wizard Dominique Ansel of Cronut, Cookie Shot and Burrata Ice Cream fame is reinventing the breakfast sandwich.

Ansel partnered with Shake Shack to make the limited-edition Egg Katsu Sando ($8) this Friday and Saturday, March 15-16. The sandwich features puffy Japanese-style steamed egg coated in panko and fried, with miso-honey mayonnaise all tucked into Ansel’s light milk bread.

It’s only at the West Village location in New York City, and only for two days, via in-person and online orders. So hopefully steamed-egg stars align.
