The Best Potato and Egg Sandwich NYC

Anthony A | Jan 25, 2012 05:55 AM

It's funny, basically I have spent the last decade fleeing the food of my "culinary patrimony", which is Italian-American cuisine. It is only now that I have come to embrace it and find myself on a quest to prepare and find the best of my noble heritage. My latest obsession is finding the best Potato and Egg Hero. Basically, I have deconstructed it on my own and I prepare a soft and moist omelet or scrambled egg with Mozz or Provolone and top it with a higly seasoned Potato and Casserole and sliced roasted peppers with a good semolina Italian roll. It is pretty damn good if I do say so myself, but I dare not say I have obtained perfection.

That is why I call on you Chowhounders to assist in finding the Holy Grail of Potato and Egg sandwiches. I have had the DeFonte version topped with Virginia Ham and it is definitely a satisfying sandwich, but I find it slightly underseasoned if not a little dry.

Please let me hear your recommendations.
