“The best thing to add to eggs is cheese,” Nick Korbee, executive chef and co-owner of NYC’s Egg Shop, told INSIDER. “We are currently pairing triple cream brie with sunny up egg, crispy kale, and pepper bacon for a special sandwich.”

He also suggests adding a bit of spice to your eggs, which can be done by topping an egg sandwich with pickled jalapeños or spicy bacon.

Fort Louise

“One of our favorite dishes to make at Fort Louise is our tater tot poutine,” Greg Biggers, executive chef and co-owner of Fort Louise in Nashville, told INSIDER. “We love this dish for brunch and adding a couple of over easy or sunny-side up eggs on top of tater tots covered with sausage gravy, cheese curds, and bacon is a hit with our guests.”
