Simply so, what do you call eggs with runny yolk?
Sunny side up: The egg is fried with theyolk up and is not flipped. Over easy: The egg isflipped and the yolk is still runny. Over medium: Theegg is flipped and the yolk is only slightlyrunny. Over well: The egg is flipped and theyolk is cooked hard.
Furthermore, whats the difference between over easy and sunny side up? A sunny-side up egg is an eggthat's been fried and cooked on one side only. Theyolk (or the "sunny side," if you will) never touches thepan. LEARN THE SIMPLE SUNNY-SIDE UP METHOD HERE andwatch Chris Kimball make it in the video above. Anover easy egg is an egg that's been fried and cookedon both sides.
In respect to this, are poached eggs supposed to be runny?
Overcooked poached eggs have rubbery whites andfirm yolks, and just don't taste good. An ideal poached egghas a firm white and a gooey-but-still-runny yolk. Cook 2minutes for runny eggs, 3 minutes for a set white with arunny yolk, and 4 minutes for a more well-done eggwith a yolk that's still soft.
What does a runny egg white mean?
But watery or runny whites are notnecessarily an indication that the eggs are old. If anegg is broken onto a flat surface and the albumen(white) is watery and spreads-out, this may indicatethat the egg is stale - but there can be otherreasons.
