What's on YOUR fried egg sandwich?

First of all, that question is one of the greatest conversation starters of all time. Seriously. Try it. No one gives the same answer. It's amazing.

Karen and I have been collecting fried egg sandwich ideas from everyone we talk to. The variety is staggering.

To start with there's the wide spectrum of yolk hardness from over easy to fried hard to broken.

Here are the bread choices we have collected:
white toast, wheat toast, ciabatta, English muffin, Italian bread, bagel, croissant, biscuit, brioche, rye, cracked wheat

And the cheese:
provolone, cheddar, gruyere, gorgonzola, brie, swiss, American

And the meat:
bacon, Canadian bacon

Veggies:
arugula, tomato, bell peppers, onions, mushrooms, caramelized onions, parsley, fresh herbs

Condiments:
ketchup, mustard, mayonnaise, butter, harissa, tabasco sauce, horseradish, truffle oil, Hollandaise, Bearnaise

Holy Sandwich Batman! How will we choose?

I can't believe I missed French Dip.

And fried egg sandwich means round sausage patty, yellow cheese and either ketchup or sambal olek at our house, lady.
