I stopped by at American Coney Island for two with everything yesterday and met up with race Keros. She was replenishing the donuts -- a morning draw -- and introduced me to the new a.m. attraction: her new Coney Breakfast Sandwich.
She is a creative businesswoman who is always looking for the latest wrinkle. Two Mondays ago, on Dec. 8, she tried a number of variatons before she came up with a new sandwich that she thinks will work for breakfast. It is sausage patties, scrambled eggs and cheese in a hot dog bun. Keros wanted to keep the bun to give it a Coney dog feel. Links did not work out as well as patties, despite their resemblance to dogs.
American serves the same ingredients in a toasted English muffin.
