How do i order fried eggs in a restaurant?
Every time I try to order eggs in a restaurant, I always seem to get it wrong. I always order over easy because that's how my dad and brother order it, but I don't like the yolk intact. I like my egg fried all the way through, but I don't know what that's called. Could someone please help and tell me the different ways I can order eggs? Thanks!
BTW, a breakfast cook who is fast and accurate is worth his weight in gold!
Over easy is cooked only on one side and not flipped at all. The yolk will be runny.
Over easy is the same but flipped over.
Over medium is a partially cooked yolk and over hard is a fully cooked yolk.
Never be afraid just to say how you want it cooked, just as you described , fried through and the yolk broken. You don't need a secret code to get food the way you want it, just describe it accurately. People are different, and just because others like over easy is no reason why you have to have them the same way.
Sunny side up = cooked on one side
Over easy = cooked on one side then flipped and cooked on the other.
Over easy hard = cooked on both sides with until the yolk gets hard. Tell the waiter to break the yolk if you want to be sure it's cooked completely.
