The Five guys FF are hand cut daily, from whole un-peeled potatoes. Fried in peanut oil. They keep their quality high and their prices decent by having a limited menu.

It is not a situation of extra protein. It is the taste of the egg itself which modifies and adds further taste dimensions to this recipe, it's one of those synergistic things where the sum is greater than the individual parts.

I can't say that in my own recipes I put any accent on traditionalism, but I'm often surprised when I try traditional recipes that I discover there are reasons why they're traditional.

Honestly, serving a fried egg over pad krapow moo would never have occurred to me had I not seen it in my Thai cookbooks. I tried it. It was good.
While that may be very common I still think it is gross and not necessary. Some Asian dishes that include eggs I have always thought was to add protein. Still gross to me. That dish looks tasty, why yuck it up with a half fried egg? Again JMO

This was our "leftover" dinner.
