Breakfast Sandwich Battle: Matt's Big Breakfast vs. Liberty Market
Rachel Miller Two delicious breakfast sandwiches battle for glory.
The breakfast sandwich. Made popular by the fast food industry, perfected and customized in small breakfast joints around the corner from home, this is a morning choice we want on our plate. A meal designed to be eaten on the go, it is that epic melding of eggs, breakfast meat, and bread. For the daily commute, a hangover cure, or a Saturday morning treat, the breakfast sandwich is the best.
For this battle, we are crossing the Valley from downtown Phoenix to Gilbert.

In This Corner: Matt's Big Breakfast
The Setup: The lengthy lines have followed Matt's Big Breakfast down the block to their new-ish location. Even at 9:30 a.m. on a summer Wednesday, the place is packed. We opted for take-out, and to our surprise, it took only five minutes, despite a packed dining room.
The Five Spot ($5.95) is two eggs, two sliced of thick-cut bacon, American cheese, and grilled onions on a soft roll. No sides.

The Good: Perfect eggs, thick bacon, melting gooey cheese in a rather beastly sandwich. I really loved the price and thought it was completely reasonable for the size of the sandwich.
The Bad: I wanted something more, some addition to the sandwich to just put it over the top to make it incredible. The onions, and I'm a serious onion lover, didn't really do much for me. They were just there.
