Onions and butter tasty but optional. Salt and pepper also essential. I like crusty sourdough bread for the outsides.

Fried egg and onions and veggie sausages and mustard in a baguette is a more complicated and still-delicious thing.

Can you explain what Dreamwidth is to me, please? My understanding so far is that it's an LJ project which will allow large-capacity storage?

Egg: fried, often in olive oil, til yolk is still *just* runny but white is properly set. Sprinkled with a tiny bit of salt and a bit more freshly ground black pepper.

Bread: Nice thickly sliced farmhouse style white bread, or possibly a nice soft granary of some sort, just plain brown or wholemeal don't really work for me. Preferably bought today and sliced by hand. Butter for preference or a good quality margarine/spread if the butter is too cold to spread.

Optional Extras: bacon cooked til it's still bendy but the fat has gone melt-in-the-mouth crispy. Two rashers for preference (three minimum for just a bacon butty).

Olive oil? No no no no no! The egg should be fried in bacon fat! Everything should be fried in bacon fat!

I jumped in very quickly when livredor offered some invites.

You should try a fried egg sandwich! They are great. (Assuming you're not allergic to eggs or bread, that is.)

Black pepper.

Cheese is nice, but that makes it a cheese and fried egg sandwich, which means it cannot be an ideal fried egg sandwich. This goes double for bacon.

This is true. But a bacon and egg sandwich is *so* good I ticked it anyway.

A few years ago I was the only person listing 'fried egg sandwiches' as an LJ interest. Now there are 23 of us.

I am a big fan of the 'fried egg chilli chutney sandwich' as seen on Red Dwarf. It really does work. (As does fried egg on lime pickle on a lightly toasted muffin.)

I was just looking down the list of options in the poll wondering why it didn't include chutney…

Of course, to be a proper Red Dwarf sandwich it should be triple. Whether that means three pieces of bread or three eggs (or both) I'm not sure.

Worcestershire sauce! Yes! I might have that instead of ketchup if I fancied a change from The One True Sandwich.

I ticked both ketchup and brown sauce, but I wouldn't want them both on the same sandwich. But one or the other would lead to two different versions of perfection.

Splattered egg - smash the yolk open, spread it over the white and fry on each side. Put it between bread and splash it with worcester sauce, bacon optional. Maaarvellous.

I don't like egg white, so I'd want mine with runny yolks, neatly cut out from the white, placed two to a sandwich with brown bread that has been liberally spread with ketchup.

Nothing else needed.

Raw onions -never.
I do draw the line somewhere.
I do like a fried egg sandwich with a faint hint of dijon mustard and maybe some bacon and really ripe tomatoes.

It is very important. rjw1 and I disagreed! (He does make a damn fine fried egg sandwich though, when instructed on suitable components.)

Granary bread, not white or wholemeal. I'm more likely to poach the egg than fry it. Definitely runny yolk, although only just. Some sort of chilli sauce is good, in which case I would add spring onions and tomato; otherwise, salad cream and cucumber, especially if fried not poached. The crunch of the cucumber goes remarkably well with the egg, I find.

Optimal is a sausage (Veggie or not, either works) and (fried, solid) egg roll (bap, butterred) with tomato sauce, but I'm also partial to cheese, brown sauce, pretty much any bread, or what have you being added to the mix.

At university, I'd have sausage / hash brown / egg , cheese sandwiches in the morning, which would fill me up enough I didn't need to see my housemates for the rest of the day :)

Whilst pregnant with Freda I had a real craving for fried egg sandwiches. Diva refused to make them for me though, so I had to make my own. "Sudo fried egg sandwich" didn't work either.

And now I want a fried egg sandwich!
