Or, rather, at lunchtime.
Because of time zones the Lunchtime Poll comes up at our tea time. So, breakfast, second breakfast, brunch, lunch, high tea, snack time, dinner, supper or midnight feast: how do you like your eggs?
Do you like an omelette? Or do you prefer them boiled? Friend? Poached? Scrambled? Deviled?
Me? I like them scrambled, ever since I discovered that I make a fantastic scrambled egg so long as I add nothing but egg.

But poached. Or scrambled with salsa. Or semi-scrambled (i.e.: I leave the yolk to cook and scramble the white).
I *make* scrambled (usually with cheese and tomatoes at minimum). I *like* omlets with EVERYTHING, but I’m not that coordinated.
I want mine either fried with oven potatoes and toast or in a veggie heavy omelette. Occasionally I venture into the world of breakfast burritos and sandwiches.
Eggs all the time. EGGS. Fried egg sandwiches, egg salad, deviled eggs, poached eggs, soft boiled eggs, SRAMBLED EGGS! OMELETTES! We go through 15 eggs a week. EGGS.
Eggs! On everything! Over easy on a big breakfast bowl of rice, beans, and avocado; scrambled with a slice of toast; an omelette of tomato, basil, and mozzarella! All the eggs! Forever!
Seriously, I go through a dozen every two weeks. By myself.
Fried/over-easy/over-medium. There’s some debate amongst the people I know as to what it’s called. Crack the egg in the pan, cook until the whites are set but the yolk is still runny, flip over just to set the very top of the whites, done. Whatever you call it, that’s what I prefer.
Not that I dislike omelettes or scrambled. All eggs are good eggs in my book, but I tend to have them over-whatever the majority of the time.
I always thought that fried was if you didn’t flip it, you just cook it in enough oil to cover it. Over easy/medium/hard is when you flip it, but the designation depends on how well set the yolk is. Over easy is when the whites just set; over hard is when the yolk is set as well.
Part of the problem may be the local vernacular (“Mackem” British) vs. my midwestern upbringing. Seriously, there are a lot of things that are exactly the same but completely different at the same time. It can be really confusing sometimes, even after being here over a decade. lol
