This question came up in the office yesterday. I forgot about it completely until this morning, when I was standing in front of the cafe downstairs ordering an egg and bacon roll.
How exactly do people like their eggs done?
I grew up with a family that looked at runny eggs and started having fits about health and worms and so forth, so soft boiled eggs were never A Thing I Got To Enjoy. But as I've gotten older, I've found there are times where the runny egg acts as a perfect sauce.
It's really nice stirred through hollandaise with eggs benedict, and I love the idea of a slightly runny egg when you're having egg in the hole. (I never called it egg in the basket.)
But if I'm having a salad? Hard egg, please. Burger? I want to be eating a burger with my hands, so hard egg thanks.
What about yourselves? What do you prefer?
