I like egg and I like cole slaw. But I don't use them as all-purpose garnish. The only thing I like cole slaw on (vs. stand alone) is a Carolina-style pulled pork BBQ sandwich. I like a fried egg sandwich, but I can't really think of anything that needs to be topped with a fried egg other than a skillet of corned beef hash.

One of my favorite dishes is a chicken gravy biscuit with egg and cheese.

Ah...coleslaw on things is traditional in some areas ...and egg on things is quite classic - I remember seeing a fried egg on a hamburger in the 70s......it's just become more common in other areas.

Just because you haven't been familiar with it.....shouldn't make it confusing.

Both are nasty. Eggs for my taste must be scrambled and visually I don't want to be staring at yolk. I also dislike the taste of cabbage no matter how it's cooked.

Is this a Midwest thing? I'm not seeing these added on foods.

Cole slaw on things is very southern.

Blame Primanti Bros and be happy you're not getting soggy, insipid fries on your sandwich along with the slaw and egg.

I see the point of cole slaw on some sandwiches. Not much different than lettuce. The new brisket and slaw on a bun being sold at Costco is delicious. But I'm not down with eggs as an added ingredient. I've seen eggs as a pizza topping a couple of places recently. Have at it if you like fried eggs, but I would never eat it. No eggs on my burgers, either.

What I can't stand is how some people put cilantro on things where it obviously doesn't belong--like on Italian or Greek food.

I was thinking cold slaw on BBQ sandwiches. Costco has them in there in store feeders.




"Slaw on BBQ sandwiches & hot dogs"
Slaw on a good dog. I have to try that

.
Slaw on a BBQ sandwich is normal where I'm from so is slaw on dogs. Relish on hot dogs to me is weird.

I also eat slaw on my fish sandwiches.

Welcome to the South, slaw isn't unconventional or weird. It's our normal.

I'm a bit of an adventurer in terms of food. Not much for novelty but to see what I can use up before it spoils.

I am not much for following any protocol for what goes with what.

Now to go put some cole slaw on my potato pancakes and a dash of mint jelly on the tapioca pudding.
