A Sandwich a Day: Scrambled Egg at Jane in San Francisco
In this great country of ours, one could eat a different sandwich every day of the year—so that's what we'll do. Here's A Sandwich a Day, our daily look at sandwiches around the country. Got a sandwich we should check out? Let us know. —The Mgmt.
Can you think of a time when you're not in the mood for an egg sandwich? Me neither. Especially the Scrambled Egg Sandwich ($7.50), served all day at Jane. It comes on crispy grilled sourdough that's smothered in cheddar cheese. You don't even have to bother with ketchup; the acidic tang is already included in the sandwich in the form of homemade tomato chutney.
But should it really be called eggs "scrambled"? They have the consistency of most eggs found on a sandwich: a unified layer of almost-frittata like firmness. After reading the menu I expected a pile of super soft, loose scrambled eggs stuffed between bread. But those should probably stay on a plate and not on sandwiches; they would be considerably harder to eat.
Regardless of what you want to call this, it's a well-done egg and cheese sandwich with quality ingredients that make it worth the price.
