Subject: Favorite Way Of Cooking Eggs

Written By: Indy Gent on 02/22/09 at 3:35 pm

I like mine fried over medium or fried over easy (neither one very healthy for me :().

I best enjoy them scrambled. :) Hard-boiled is enjoyable once in a while too. Also, I like to have omelets.

I like fried over easy the best, but I love eggs almost anyway. scrambled, hard & soft boiled, deviled, omelets, but I've never liked sunny side up. I can flip the fried eggs without breaking the yolk & without a spatula  ::)    if it's a good non stick pan

I don't eat eggs too much anymore and I'll explain why. I like my eggs cooked in the artery hardening manner of
fried, over easy, in bacon grease.

eggs don't like me.  I can handle things with eggs in them, but not eggs alone.  Scrambled is worse, I seem to have a slight dairy problem.

I make mine scrambled most of the time. I put a bit of milk, shredded cheese, and a bit of garlic in them...then when they are finished, I put some hot sauce on them. YUM!

What's the difference between Fried Over Easy and Fried Over Medium ? I've heard of the first one but now I'm not sure what it means  ???  :P

I like to eat hard boiled(deviled eggs & egg salad sandwiches)
For breakfast it's scrambled with cheese.

Scrambled eggs on toast! I love it when the toast goes soggy too.  :)

I like soft boiled with lots of butter and salt and pepper served with toast.

Second choice would be over medium.

i think that with over easy, the yolk is soft & smooth & liquidy or runny, Once you break the yolk you can see how it flows out.

in medium the yolk is starting to firm up & is only a little bit runny, but not too much.

Scrambled in butter.

Hard boiled with the yolk removed

Deviled

And also scrambled on toast. Yum-o.

I love eggs!!!  Will eat them most ways.  My favorite being Soft-boiled, but I do not have the time or the patience to cook soft boiled eggs - my mommy always made them for me.  Which is why I eat eggs over easy most days. I love scrambled with hotdogs and ketchup - a Sami Specialty.  I also favor omelettes, not so big on hard boiled.  Like a good deviled egg, but do not know a good recipe to make them - so I can not make.  I will eat a fried egg sandwhich on occasion, but not a fan of benedict.

It's so funny that you say that, because my mom always made me soft boiled eggs too!  Especially when I was sick.  :)  And I have never been able to make them the way she did!

I love it - I always had them when I was sick to  - she would get them out of their shells, and then give me a pat of butter (salt and pepper) and I would smash it all together and eat it on toast  - YUMMY.  I miss my mom, I will sometimes make a soft boiled egg when I am sick and then I burn my hand trying to get it out of the shell, and then sometimes the yolk is too hard and not runny - I get so frustrated, I give up.  Man I am wishing I had a soft boiled egg right now :-[

I order them fried hard (yolk is like a hard boiled egg) in a restaurant. I cannot stand the runny yolks.  8-P

When I was a kid my mom told me that I  ould not get it that way in a restaurant. When I started dating DH he said just ask for it fried hard.

It is not a part of the embryo - it is a twisted cord and it is on either side of the yolk - to help keep it suspended in the center of the egg (so the yolk does not get too hot or too cold;the albumen, the white, acts as an insulator.  Most eggs have no embryo, because layers do not have a rooster in the pack to fertalize the eggs.  White spot on the yolk is the germinal disk, this is where the sperm would enter to fertalize egg.

Normally I would say scrambled, never all runny, and that's how I voted, then I saw this:
