The egg wasn't flat, still had the egg shape and was cut in half and set on the side of the sandwich.

In that case, it probably was a soft-boiled egg. Still, the sandwich sounds super.

Soft boiled egg - place egg in cold water and bring to a boil. At the boiling point I like it to cook for 2 minutes. The size of the egg and the temperature of the egg at the time of cooking will affect the cooking times. For a mediium boiled egg it should take maybe 45 seconds to a minute longer? Don't really know as I always cook mine soft-boiled.

Don't worry Katie - I saw flat too! Yes, it was probably soft or medium-boiled. Soft-boiled the yellow would be running out. Medium-boiled the yolk would be more set but still soft.

Oh, now you've gone and done it! Do I have to choose? Let's do all.

Grits IS grits no matter how served.
