No disrespect to the everything bagel, but we’ve come to realize that the best base for your egg sando is a buttermilk biscuit.We’ll happily abide by a little messiness in favor of a tender, salty round, especially if it’s made by Nicole Jones at Stomping Ground (2309 Mount Vernon Ave., Alexandria). Our favorite DIY creation: a layering of bacon, egg, and sweet sorghum butter. At Society Fair (277 S. Washington St., Alexandria), biscuits stand up well to zesty house-made sausage.
