Outstanding Egg Sandwiches in New Orleans

View as Map

Egg sandwiches are the perfect breakfast - portable, delicious, covers all the food groups (more or less) - and what elevates one from good to great is choosing flavors that work well together, and making sure the whole thing has some semblance of structural integrity. The list below of breakfast sandwiches ranges from the traditional to the wild - some are open faced, some have eggs outside the sandwich, some utilize unusual ingredients. But rest assured this is as wide ranging a egg breakfast sandwich roundup you'll see.
