Eggs Three Ways: If chocolate-filled isn’t your thing, here are three savory ways to celebrate the egg this Easter.

Fried Egg Sandwich

Move over, Egg McMuffin. The Grant Grill treatment may be the best thing that has ever happened to an egg sandwich. Fragrant slabs of toasted and buttered rosemary bread cushion a fluffy fried egg topped with sweet heirloom tomato slices, butter lettuce, and silky strips of guanciale. The delicate Italian pork product is made from the cheeks and jowls of the pig, so it’s more succulent than bacon, and not as fatty. Try it for lunch, or in the lounge as a late-night bite. Grant Grill, 326 Broadway, downtown

Egg & Bacon Pizza

The breakfast-for-dinner thin-crust pie is smothered with tomato sauce and Pecorino Romano and Fontina cheeses, then topped with Swiss chard, caramelized onion, house-cured bacon, and an egg, cooked sunny-side-up in the center. A drizzle of truffle oil is the luxurious final flourish. With the runny yolk, sharp cheese, and smoky bacon, you’re going to need a beer. Good news: there are 20+ craft brews on tap. Blind Lady Ale House, 3416 Adams Ave., Normal Heights

Inventive Eggs Benedicts

The staid but dependable brunch classic is re-energized in the Chilaquiles Benedict, with carne asada piled on a corn tortilla stack with poached Niman Ranch eggs, creamy smoked cheddar Hollandaise, salsa, and cotija cheese. The Upstream Benny features cream cheese Hollandaise poured over honey-smoked salmon and perfectly poached eggs on bacon-jalapeño spoonbread. There are five options in all, and you can get two styles on the same plate. Snooze, 3940 Fifth Ave., Hillcrest // Erin Jackson
