Egg Sandwich Survey: Fried or Scrambled?

We adore breakfast sandwiches with eggs. But up until last weekend, that invariably meant a fried egg. We hadn't ever even considered scrambled eggs on a sandwich. But then we ordered this scrumptious bacon, arugula, and egg sandwich for brunch, and when it came we were momentarily taken aback. Where was the drippy egg yolk?

But scrambled eggs on a sandwich have benefits: When you give up the one-shot sublime moment of a runny egg yolk, you do get more even coverage (more eggy goodness in each bite) and an easier and neater eating experience, too. Which do you prefer?

That delicious sandwich, by the way, was had at Seattle's Table 219. Everything we had there was delicious, especially the house raspberry jam.
