    I like mine over medium, too. In fact, that last photo looks perfect to me. Add a piece of whole wheat toast or an English muffin, and I’m there.

    I went through a few years where I absolutely hated eggs but during my last pregnancy, I craved them. Now I eat at least 3 a day. Have you ever tried frying them in coconut oil? It gives them a hint of sweetness…nom nom.

      Hi Tara! No, I’ve never tried using coconut oil, but will have to try. For no particular reason, I don’t tend to use coconut oil when cooking, but I definitely need to pick some up to try it out. Thanks for the tip!

    do you leave your heat on medium-high while cooking the egg? mine always seem to get to brown.

      Hi Toni, yes I keep mine on medium-high throughout the cooking process. Hmm…does it turn brown before the whites are all cooked in the center?

    I love this post…finally I learn more about fried egg terms other than the usual sunny side up, over easy and omelet! Now I know how to tell the waiter how I want the eggs to be cooked. I always like mine over medium or over well :D

      Yay! I’m so happy I could help, Jos. Now, hopefully your waiter will know what the terms mean too!

    I love my eggs over medium, but don’t need to flip them when cooking them this way. Someone years ago just told me to cover them up with a lid big enough to cover edges..and leave on but check them until they’ve developed a cover over them. Works like a charm, no broken yolks, and also I cook mine in butter. They’re delicious.
