This is a question that I had to get used to when I came here in the US. You see, from where I came from it is not usual to eat breakfast out. We do have restaurants or food chains where we can eat breakfast but we get what we get. We were not asked how we like our eggs done. The first time my then fiance took me out for breakfast I was surprised when the lady asked me... how do you like your eggs? I didn't know how to answer the question because I didn't why I was asked in the first place. So I asked my Sweetest... How do I like my eggs? He smiled and he said to the lady... we like our eggs... over-easy? What the heck is over-easy? Eventually, I found it out. And everytime we would go out and there would be an egg in the menu I would always say... I want my eggs over-easy. But honestly, I prefer omelet. When I will cook my own egg, I will always make omelet with ham and cheese, or garlic, tomatoes, and onions, or green peppers. So how do you like your egg?

Hi ruth. I prefer my egg hard boiled *winkz! Everytime I eat an egg, I cant help not to remember my father. Way back home, he always bought a dozens of eggs or he got from his own poultry. At night, after the family had dinner and we were watching movies or TV, he then asked one of us to cook eggs (hard boiled). Those eggs were our midnight snacks. Thats maybe the reason why I always like my egg hard boiled.

I am really fussy about how I like my eggs and I always like to cook them for myself. I like the yolk runny but warm and I hate any runny white. I tend to cook it at a high heat until the bottom browns slightly and then turn it over for exactly 10 seconds. mmm I am hungry now - I haven't had breakfast yet!!

I like my eggs over-easy, especially with bacon. Omelettes I don't mind, but unlike the way they are supposed to be cooked, I like mine overdone, so that they are brown with no sloppy bits in them. I also like soft boiled eggs, with soldiers(toast cut into fingers) for dipping. Hard boiled I like cold, especially if they are curried. Actually, the only way I couldn't have eggs is raw. Blah!

i learned as a waitress there are a lot of different ways to make eggs there is "sunny side up" - where the egg is not flipped over, only the white bottom is cooked over easy - flipped once, inside real runny over medium - flipped once, inside not do runny over hard - inside not runny at all then there is scrambled and like you said omelets...i love omelets :) i think that would be my favorite way... i also like breafast buritos and egg/bread/cheese casseroles - those are yummy too!
