Neither is new to the world but they are new to those who did not grow up eating things like you.

I do enjoyed fried eggs on a variety of things like hamburgers, rice, asparagus, fried potatos or a veggie and egg sandwiches, but this is not a new trend and can be found all over the place.

I'm probably more inclined to add it to things because I rarely eat cheese (except goat cheese) and the yolk adds a bit of creaminess.

Coleslaw is gross though.....

I like slaw on BBQ sandwiches and fried eggs on hash. I guess I would give either a go on other things, but I prefer my burgers normal.

Not sure I consider Texas to be Southern.

My roommate is like this - I read your post, LS, and almost busted a gut laughing about it. Every time we're heating up leftovers or something, she's like "This would be great with a fried egg on top."

Drives me NUTS! (in a good-natured way.)

I don't get it. I don't want an egg on my burger/pasta/salad/pizza/whatever. It doesn't need an egg. I was perfectly happy with it before.

Haha, maybe she watches too much of the food channel. I'm thinking a BBQ Brisket sandwich, with and egg/slaw/swiss cheese and some blue cheese dressing for dinner

Putting an egg on things (and everything else you mentioned) was done way before Food Network.

I've seen someone cover a beautiful plate of cheese enchiladas with ketchup so an egg on echis or a hamburger doesn't seem any wierder.

I've been known to put a fried egg on a bowl of hot buttered boiled rice.
