Many places in the world have breakfast sandwiches. Guatemala is no exception. The typical Guatemalan breakfast sandwich usually has scrambled eggs and black beans, sometimes sausages or hot links inside a pirujo or francés piece of bread. Pirujos and shucos are the two native sandwiches from Guatemala.Pirujos are plain white dinner rolls that are the same as Frances, but oblong shaped.
The Guatemalan pirujo breakfast sandwich shown here also has home-made jalapeño slices, but that is not common, only upon request. ¡Buen provecho!
