Over easy, just flip them for about 10-15 seconds so their no uncooked eggwhite to see.

If not over easy, just scramble them.

I like the whites solid and the yolk runny.

I’ve always heard that as over medium.

Poached is best, because that usually means I'm getting some fancy ass breakfast (like the lobster Benedict I had in Maine that I would murder for). But nearly all the choices are perfectly cromulent with the exception of hard boiled (and special thanks to Croc for not adding the abomination that is over well).

Over medium means the yolk is mostly cooked through with just a trickle of runny. Over easy gives you a fully cooked white with runny yolk.

That's the goal, but I have found if I want the white cooked, I have to ask for the over medium. I hate cutting into the thing and having slimy clear good seeping out of the white skin. blech!

If you're talking about restaurant eggs, it's probably because their grill isn't hot enough. The whites will cook quickly on high heat leaving the yolk runny so long as you're johnny on the spot to turn them. Over easy should work with a hot iron skillet.

You haven't lived until you eat powdered eggs prepared by a 19 year old numbskull going on 4 hours sleep in a field kitchen.

Pretty sure Texas Pete was specifically created for this.

I very rarely eat eggs solo. Usually as an omelette or in a sandwich.

That's because when they try to flip them and they fold over and the yolk tears open, they just scramble them in frustration.

Solid call.

So few places poach eggs properly. But as far as chains go, Cracker Barrel ain't too shabby.
