Last week we asked you to tell us what makes your perfect breakfast sandwich. We created polls for each element: the bread, the egg style, the cheese, and the meat. After calculating the winners for each, we have concocted the "perfect" composite: it comes on an English muffin with a fried egg, cheddar, and (uh oh..) bacon and sausage are tied for the meat vote! Which breakfast meat is superior? Will this question ever be answered? Probably not. But we know that ham didn't win.

And finally, the cheese. Cheddar, American, Swiss, provolone, none, or some fancypants cheese we left out? Take the poll! »
Now it's time for the meat. Bacon, ham, sausage, or something else? Or maybe you prefer it meatless (that's fine too!). Take the poll! »
Next up, let's discuss the part that arguably makes it a breakfast sandwich: the egg. What's your favorite preparation? Fried, scrambled, the patty-like blob, poached, or something else? Take the poll! »
As you've maybe noticed, we sit around thinking about breakfast sandwiches pretty often. The question of what constitutes the perfect breakfast sandwich—the bread, the meat, the cheese, the egg—is entirely subjective. But we're trying to get as close as possible to what y'all consider to be the perfect composition for the breakfast chapter in the Serious Eats book we're working on. So first thing's first: what's your favorite bread? Take the poll! »
