Over easy with the yolk semi-runny
soft boiled
or poached .. my favorite being eggs Benedict ( with the sauce on the side.)

I guess I like mine just about any way ... but if not scrambled or hard boiled I like the yolk warm and runny! My experience with "over easy" has always been the yolk was way to overcooked (solid and not runny). So, I you could put me down for - any way but over easy.

I Don't. I am probably the only person on the planet that detests eggs. The thought of the white part of a hard boiled egg, or a runny mess on the plate, makes me ill. If it's scrambled, it has to be cooked beyond recognition and a ton of ingredients mixed in. Quiche, semi-okay, but won't eat it too eggy. A custard is semi okay - but put lots of anything - onions etc in. Souffles are my favorite -- since I don't taste the eggs. French toast - don't make it too eggy. Potato salad - if it has eggs, I won't eat it. Devilled eggs - I'll eat the yellow and that's enough. UGGHHHH! Sure you'll get plenty of responses re how people 'like' their eggs. I don't want to look at them.

Scrambled is my all time favourite, but Benedict, fried (sunny side down), omelets & frittatas and poached are all great too

Over easy is how I cook the two eggs a week I allow myself. I drag the yolkless pieces of white through the runny yolk so I can get some of that delicious nectar in every bite.

The rest of the week, when I use an Eggbeaters type of product, they are part of an omlet with light cheddar and real bacon bits. While not as good as whole eggs, they're not bad.

I'm the weird one, i like the egg white only - if by itself, fried crispy in lots of butter with pepper - i will eat an egg white omlette (fresh tomatoes, mushrooms and cheddar cheese), but it must be well done, if you can use that term to describe eggs. I will eat a hard boiled egg, but again, only the white part - you can't say it because I already did, I'm the weird one.

Over easy, make sure the white is cooked all the way through and yet the yolk is warm and runny is my fav!! Otherwise I like them in just about any and every way.
