    I prefer over medium, so the whites are fully cooked and the yolk soft & runny to dip my toast. If I have a fried egg sandwich, well done. Deviled is good too

    I like them soufleed/baked. I think some people call them Dutch eggs. You beat the whites separate and fold them into the beaten yolks, start them in the frypan just to set the bottom and then put it in the oven to finish cooking. Light fluffy and flavorful.
    Otherwise I like them over easy, but for sure the whites need to be cooked.

    That depends on how I'm using them.

    I wouldn't want runny yokes on a sandwich.

    I voted for most of 'em except the extremes of hard/soft. No idea what "coddled" means though. :dunno:

    Is that like when your egg wants to learn to drive and you get all fussy about how it has to wear its seat belt? :eusa_angel:

    Btw you forgot "omeletted". That's what I had today. Spinach, mushroom, imported Gouda and feta.

    I don't think I've ever heard of that :dunno:

    But if the whites are fully cooked, and soft yolk, it's over medium. Over easy is where the whites aren't fully cooked & still snotty. I can't stand snotty eggs. Blech

    I think that means when you basically poach them in a liquid that you also ingest, instead of just boiling water.
