We’ll start easy. This is when egg whites and yolks are whisked together to create soft and fluffy goodness, best served with a dash of salt and pepper and a side of toast.


Meet the star of your eggs Benedict. Here, the egg gets tossed in boiling water for three to five minutes, resulting in a lovely, little egg blob that typically sits atop your toast and runs yolky when you pierce it with a fork.

11. Basted

I’ve come across some some eggs on restaurant menus that are labeled as basted but are clearly poached. Generally basted means liquid or steam is used to thoroughly cook the egg white without flipping. For instance, while frying an egg in butter, you repeatedly scoop and pour the extra butter on top of the egg. This cooks the yolk and top whites without forcing you to flip it. Alternatively, you can also squirt some water into the pan and then cover the egg with a lid, to steam the whites. If you do this quickly, you can cook the whole egg before the edges start to brown, which seems to be the appeal of basted eggs (much like poached eggs).

5. Sunny Side Up

Sunny side up means your egg yolk looks like a bright morning sun. To make: crack an egg directly into your greased frying device. Then fry it until the edges brown, WITHOUT flipping. Flipping your sunny side up egg turns it into an over easy egg. The yolk is runny, and depending on how long you fry it, the albumen is completely or partially set. We refer to these as runny or “dipping” eggs. The runny yolk is great for dipping toast into.

What’s the Difference Between Over Easy and Over Medium Eggs?

Don’t let anyone tell you different because there is definitely a difference between over easy and over medium eggs. And the truth is in the yolk! Over easy eggs are fried much more quickly than over medium eggs because you want to keep that runny and rich yolk when you cut into it. 

On the other hand, over medium eggs are cooked until the center is slightly firm to the touch, but still, feel soft in the center. When you cut open an over medium egg, the center should be gelatinous and jammy.

Scrambled Eggs

9. Hard Scrambled Eggs

Scrambled eggs are arguably the king of all eggs. They are one of the most common methods of preparing eggs at restaurants and are often served with bacon, sausage, hash browns, and toast. They’re also super easy to make too.

An egg that is scrambled means that the yolk and the whites are whisked together prior to cooking. Hard scrambled eggs are cooked in a greased pan all the way through and are served completely dry.

10. Soft Scrambled Eggs

Soft scrambled eggs are the same as hard scrambled eggs, except they are cooked for a shorter amount of time and on medium heat. Soft scrambled eggs are much moister than hard scrambled eggs and are slightly runnier.

Eggs cook FAST, so if you want to make great soft scrambled eggs, make sure to keep them constantly moving in a greased frying pan and do not step away from the pan.

If you let these eggs cook for too long or you cook them on anything higher than medium heat, they will quickly turn into hard scrambled eggs.

scrambled eggsWe love to mix other ingredients into our scrambled eggs like chicken, spinach, shredded cheese, mushrooms, sausage, and tomatoes. This is typically referred to as a scramble or a hash.

11 & 12. Omelets and Frittatas

We’re counting omelets and frittatas as two separate methods of cooking eggs. However, they’re so similar that they hardly warrant separate sections.

Omelets are an infinitely-customizable variation of traditional scrambled eggs. Omelets are scrambled eggs that are cooked into a stabilized form and filled with all kinds of ingredients including meats, cheeses, vegetables, herbs, and spices.

The omelet is folded back over onto itself, encapsulating the delicious ingredients within. Some people like to broil the top of their omelet after they have folded it over.

A frittata is essentially an open-faced omelet. It is still loaded up with ingredients, but it is not folded over onto itself. See? Completely different.

With a sunny-side-up (also called a fried egg), the egg is broken into a skillet or frying pan, carefully leaving the yolk intact. A fried egg is never flipped or cooked yolk-side down. The white cooks until completely or partially set, while the yolk remains liquid.

An over-hard egg is an over-easy egg whose yolk is completely cooked through. It starts as a fried egg that's cooked on one side, then flipped and cooked yolk-side down until the yolk is no longer runny. You can also order your eggs "over-medium" if you'd like it somewhere in the middle.

How Fresh Are Your Eggs? Here are Two Ways to Test

There are two simple ways to test how fresh your eggs are. One requires cracking the egg, and one doesn't. Testing Your Eggs for Freshness.
