Fries gone wild.
Last year, Urban Daddy rounded up some of New York City's best alternatives to the classic Bacon & Egg Sandwich. Well, watch out, NYC, because H-town's come to play.

Readers, we give you seven of the most mind-blowingly delicious takes on bacon & eggs in Houston:

7. On Fries

What: Wild Fries
Where to get it: Sammy's Wild Game Grill
What it is: Egg and bacon bit-topped fries.

Crisp french fries become yolk-coated as they are tossed with a fried egg and smothered with cheese, chopped bacon, and fresh chives. The result: crunchy, decadent fries that become even wilder when topped with Sammy's house-made ghost pepper sauce.

6. In Pancake Form

What: The Pancake Omelet
Where to get it: Harry's Restaurant & Cafe
What it is: An omelet ... wrapped in a pancake.

Harry's makes a mean pancake. They also make a mean omelet. So why not combine the two into a giant, delightful monstrosity and call it a day. A two-egg omelet is filled with cheese and bacon (or choose ham or sausage) and surrounded by a fluffy pancake.

If it has eggs, it counts as breakfast, right?
5. On Pizza

What: Coppa "ham & eggs"
Where to get it: Coppa Ristorante Italiano
What it is: A pizza pie topped with coppa and quail eggs.

Wisps of salty and spicy air-dried pork shoulder and sunny side-up quail eggs are baked right into the restaurant's light and delicate brick-oven pizza dough, along with a sweet and fresh tomato sauce.

4. As an Hors d'oeuvre

What: Bacon-Wrapped Eggs
Where to get it: RDG + Bar Annie
What it is: Hard-boiled eggs wrapped in bacon.

What started as a joke in the kitchen has turned into one of RDG + Bar Annie's most popular appetizers. Served during Sunday brunch, perfect hard-boiled eggs are wrapped in bacon, fired-grilled until crisp, and finished with a drizzle of garlic butter, a squeeze of lime, and a dollop of chipotle salsa.

None of these hold a candle to Max's fried egg sandwich. Do any of you even pay attention to the food scene?
