Sure but do they make the best breakfast sandwich? That throws the field wide open for me.

They do not - it's too much bread. That's why an English muffin, or a relatively thin biscuit, makes a better choice.

Yup, as I said on the first page:

Otherwise, too much bread.

Now if you do count open faced sandwiches then they win six ways from Sunday.

I've had some perfectly good bagel breakfast sandwiches, but I think the poll only allowed one vote, so I went for decadence and picked croissant.

That breakfast has to have eggs is the bane of my existence. You have no idea what a pain in the ass it is to hate eggs (I think I might even be allergic to them? It's unclear, but they routinely upset my stomach and make me vomit on their own, but are fine in baking). Every breakfast item on every breakfast menu in the world is "eggs + X", unless you resign yourself to only ordering pancakes for the rest of your life. So then you have to order X without eggs, which always introduces a host of minor socially awkward ambiguities. Does it cost the same amount, or do they offer you a discount? Do you get the same volume of other items, or do they offer a substitution to compensate? If they screw up and serve it to you with eggs anyway, do you say anything or just quietly decline to eat half of your meal?

I do my best to avoid ever eating breakfast out just because it's such a pain in the ass to avoid eggs. Fuck eggs.

Man eggs are like the #1 perfect food for a human though. I mean I'm not gonna say you should start eating eggs, doubly so if they actually make you feel sick, but dang. Eggs. You can't do better than eggs!

Trying to make a top-and-bottom sandwich out of a bagel is how you get abominations like flagels. It's a path mankind was not meant to walk.

What about eggs as an invisible component of food? Cookies and pastries, obviously, but also baked pasta, where you can barely taste the egg, and it's mostly there to add moisture and fullness to the dish.

I mean, yes, shamelessly stealing JBear's words again, but once they're cooked into things and it is no longer an "egg" I'm fine. Something about the texture and the way it tastes as it goes down just makes me ill thinking about it, and it doesn't matter which way the eggs are prepared.

I'm fine with it provided that it's not a notable, identifiable component of the dish, and even then it's a line. I can eat rice that's fried with egg no problem. Quiche makes me feel ill, though.

What about a fried egg on a sandwich or burger? You know a runny one? that gets all the delicious yolk on the meat and fixings?

Literally the best sandwich on the planet is a BLT with a fried egg on it.

I don't even know what that is, and neither does Google. Given the direction you're going in, though, I'm going to assume that it's egg served on top of egg.

All of those results are for things not called "toad in the wall".

???

In any case, the second picture is a picture of a big egg, so no.

The poll is multiple choice... (At least it should be.)

Oh. I get it. It's like how some people (including me) don't like tomatoes but like ketchup and marinara and whatnot.

I can't believe I never responded to this when it was originally posted. I'm not sure if open-faced sandwiches count. I feel that gets into a weird slippery slope territory. Would eggs benedict be an OFBS? Would biscuits and gravy? (I don't think egg in the basket would. )

You already did weigh in on this:

As for your questions, eggs benedict certainly would because the biscuit is opened up and layers of stuff put on top of it. Biscuits and gravy would not because you don't open the biscuit and you're just spooning sauce on top (you don't have a sauce sandwich, do you?). Eggs in a basket / toads in a hole wouldn't either because the eggs are in the hole, not on top of the bread.

Yeah, Falselogic made up that term. What he means is "Toad in a/the hole" which is also known as eggs in a basket.

Ive always called it eggs in toast. A co-worker introduced me to the term toad in the wall which I find delightful. Also Google understood me just fine.

ANYWAY I WILL BE VISITING JBEAR SOON IN CANADA ON VACATION AND WILL BE EATTING RUNNY EGGS IN FRONT OF HIM FOR EVERY MEAL.

Default Have you been deloused?

That's because our eggs come in a baggy, just like our milk. It's only considered polite for guests to eat their eggys straight from the bag. Don't worry, it's too cold up here for Salmonella to live as far as you know.

Yes, but notice all the results are either for "Egg in a hole" or "Toad in the hole".

There's no wall. No one says that. I think this is the second time you have sited Google as supporting your claim without actually looking at any of the results.

The person who introduced me to the term said that. I dont know where they got it from. You'd have to take that up with them. Are you denying their personhood?

Yes. I think you created them out of whole cloth. They are just a figment of your imagination. Can anyone else vouch for their existence? Hmm??

The answer to this question depends on where you are. For fast food places, croissants and english muffins are safe but biscuits tend to be too dried out. However, the platonic ideal of the breakfast sandwich uses a fresh-baked flaky biscuit:
