Today I was wondering how others like to fix their eggs. I like them over hard. Yolks not broken but flipped and fried hard. I can't stand runny yolks it turns my stomach. Scrambled would be my second choice.
poached is my favorite or soft boiled but I can never get all the shell and I cant stand crunching down on shell. I flip out. I also like over medium but that almost never happens in a restaurant. I don't know why they even bother to ask how I want it. I always comes out over easy to almost underdone.
My personal preference is for soft boiled (white set, though) with well-buttered toast "soldiers" to dip into the yolk. LOL. However, I rarely get the chance to eat them that way. Fried - I like the white set and the yolk runny. Don't know what terminology to use. I do it by frying the egg so the white is almost set then basting the top to finish the white cooking and putting a white "veil" on the yolk.
I'm with Tambo, I like eggs pretty much any way, lol! Just depends on my mood that day, fried, scrambled, soft boiled, hard boiled, deviled, omelet, Eggs Benedict, in a breakfast casserole, egg salad, breakfast burrito...I feel like Bubba in Forrest Gump, ROFL!
But if I had to pick one, I'd probably say over medium, fried in bacon grease (I know, I know, but I don't eat them all the time, and they taste so GOOD!). I like the yolk runny, but the white has to be done all the way through or I can't eat it. Runny whites...shudder!
No runny anything in my eggs. I always want mine scrambled hard. LOL I love omelets but seldom have them because most aren't cooked enough for me. The whole meal is toast once I see runny, most especially the whites.
I don't eat eggs. never did. for breakfast I have coffee, toast and some kind of dried roasted fish. that's not to say I will serve you dried fish for breakfast if any of you come to visit me. not at all. I have 5 dozen in the fridge right now. I bake every day. just don't ask me to cook them. I make an awful mess of them the few times I've tried. ~Georgia.
I take them out when white is just starting to appear over the yokes. I like them runny. I will mix them up, when I have enough to do so, which aint now with 4 hens, but will be when I buy another couple doz in a month. Ill put 6 or 8 in the MW after stirring them up, and put salad dressing on them.
