Lol! Bolas.

Over easy IMO: runny yolk, set white NO SNOT and no crispy edges. :-)

I think over easy means that the yoke is still runny. As someone else mentioned, how the heck do you get the white not fully cooked when the egg has been flipped over on the pan?

I've been served flipped fried eggs ordered at "Over Medium" that have had raw egg white in them SO many times. It's disgusting. Like a plate full of snot.

Are you serious? You've never been served flipped eggs where the white was not fully cooked? If so, you must stick pretty close to home. I would guess I've been served them that way in at least 30-40 different restaurants in several states across the USA. I hope your luck holds. I wish I had your luck.

It always makes me feel bad to have the plate sent back to get my eggs cooked properly. That's why NOW I always spell it out for the waitress so she'll make sure the cook understands.

I cook over easy eggs for myself all the time. It's quite easy to make them so there is still loose (or snotty) egg white. It's all a matter of how long you cook the eggs on side one before you flip.

I cook the egg just long enough to get my flipper underneath it without it falling apart (that's right, I'm not a pan flipper ). As soon as the yolk side hits the hot skillet, that side's whites set up. Maybe I cook with a hotter pan... or maybe I'm used to a thicker snot

When I flip my eggs, the whites aren't completely set. As soon as I flip, I turn off the burner and the residual heat in the pan finishes the egg while I salt and pepper it. Then it slides into the plate.

That's how I do it also, Andy. I do test the side of each egg, nearest the yolk for doneness before putting it on my plate. Runny egg white really grosses me out.

I understand your aversion. SO is the same way. So much so that she has to cook her own eggs.

My Grammy ate her eggs about half done. When she was visiting, all of us kids were under strict punishment warnings if we made gagging noises while she was eating her eggs. We did have giggling fits though. One look from Dad would end that however...

At my Dad's table, kids did not speak unless spoken to by an adult unless asking for something to be passed. We loved to try to make each other laugh and would resort to all manners of eye-rolls and such at each other. Dad would tolerate one or two snickers, but not much. He was raised under 1850's standards and taught us the same way. He was born in 1907 when his Dad was over 50.

I've just recently started eating eggs scrambled so the only term I know used here is sunny side up which is cooked on one side (yuck).

I only eat srambled eggs at home because I can't eat them prepared by someone else. So I've never ordered eggs to know what "over easy" and all those terms mean....
