Griz Breakfast Burrito Makes Bracket Of 32 Best College Campus Eats

MISSOULA -

Stuffed with scrambled eggs, salsa, gravy, sausage, bacon, cheddar cheese, hash browns, onions and green bell peppers, all wrapped in a large tortilla. The University of Montana's famous Griz breakfast burrito once again gains national attention.

The burrito made the Food Network's list of the 32 Best Campus Eats. In a bracket style competition the burrito faced off against other universities, coming in ninth place.

This is not UM's dining services first time making a national list in the last few months. In February, Food Service Director Magazine named UM's Farm to College Program the "Best Overall Sustainability Program."

"It's a huge honor of course, and we're very fortunate that we have exceptional chefs on campus, exceptional food, and we make it a priority to produce high quality food for students," said UM Dining Services Director Mark Loparco.

Temple University's "Koagie" sandwich topped the list at number one. Purdue University's "Boilermaker Pete" burger rounded out the list.
