I was taken by surprise the first time I had Schnitzel a la Holstein, topped with a sunny side egg, but now I am a believer.

I've never had veal I didn't like. I've never eaten 'Schnitzel a la Holstein' but it looks really good!

Where is it a common dish?

Every place I order eggs, I make sure to specify to the wait staff that I want my eggs flipped, with the whites completely cooked and the yolk as runny as possible, whatever they call them. I've had them respond with:

"Oh, you mean over medium"

Or

"Oh, you mean over easy"

It would be nice if everyone agreed, but that ain't happening anywhere I've lived.
No worries. If I have ever gotten eggs while out, if I had 'em with runny whites, I would return 'em, as to me, that is NOT over easy. . .I like my dippy eggs, but a raw white no way Jose.

I do miss on occasion my Loco Moco, a Hawaiian staple breakfast of two scoops of white rice, topped with a griddled burger patty, Hawaiian style brown gravy, and sunny side up egg(whites firm). About the only time I ever ate sunny side up eggs.

Had great Breakfasts via Japan too, a scoop of whit rice covered in piping hot chicken broth, then you crack an egg in the middle and load on thin cut green onions. The egg becomes a mix of almost like egg drop soup, but if you did it patiently, let the yolk sit a bit, it made for a wonderful custard like mouth feel. Not too unlike Korean Bimbam bop.

As for the running out of the sandwich, it is all a matter of remembering where the yolk is really, so that when you bite in, the yolk runs down and the bread soaks it all up.

Let's see, self basted are Steamed, Basted have the cooking oil/butter/grease spooned over, the whites are cooked and the yolk can be anywhere from runny to hard cooked.

Sunny Side up are the brightest yellow, the yolks only getting heat from the bottom, whites often not cooked. These are my favorites. I love the pan to be really hot so I get that yummy lace around the edges and the yolk and a little bit if the surounding whites are still runny.

Over Easy, I flip, count 7 seconds and remove from pan, Over Medium, 12 seconds, Over Hard, 20 seconds. Shrek says I'm the only one to get his eggs right, he likes them over easy.

This is why I order my eggs basted! I also keep a couple of different sized pie tins in the cupbaord to baste my eggs at home.

+1 more for tatt's description.

on another note, if you just order a fried egg without specifying the style, such as on a sandwich (taylor ham, fried eggs, and cheese sandwich, for instance), you'll get a fried eggs that have been flipped and the yolk purposely broken so it all cooks evenly through.
