Because of my broad palate I enjoy mixing unconventional items together and then watching the reactions of people as I tell them my tastes, since most people tend to be 'picky' eaters whereas I'll sample every item on the buffet and mix it together so it resembles a casserole (not a 'hot dish')

In New Mexico, a fried egg on enchiladas (stacked, not rolled) is a traditional thing.

People have been putting cole slaw on burgers in the south since burgers were invented. BBQ too.

Fries on pizza back in Pittsburgh was good. Here in San Diego, there's a place (maybe more?) that has tartar sauce as an ingredient on a burrito. It was really, really good. I forget what all else was on it.

I just got thinking about the things I usually put Cole slaw on, almost to the point of not thinking about it.

Fish Sandwiches
Often use it as a "Salad dressing" on lettuce and tomato salads
I put it on chopped Cucumbers and onions
On Eggplant Parmesan
Come to think of it I put it on most fried or baked things including baked potato

Whenever I have Cole slaw it is rare I don't put it on something. Maybe I don't like Cole slaw

I never heard of putting a fried egg on a burger and am not interested in trying it. It sounds very unappealing to me.

Slaw on a sandwich is something I've done though. It's great on BBQ and roast beef.

Grew up in Southern AZ and enchiladas were always rolled with no egg. Amazing that just one state away can make such a difference.

"Have to roll your enchiladas to put some cole slaw in them"

Isa Chandra Moskowitz's "Vegan Brunch" has recipes for steamed seitan sausages. They take a bit of care to get right, but I enjoyed them.

Also Field Roast makes a seitan-based sausage on three flavors, plus a plain Frankfurter variety.
