What do you call it??

When worlds collide, there's bound to be a little bit of confusion, right?! I'm from SE Virginia. My husband is from Pittsburgh (but lived most of his life in Tampa). So I'm the southern girl - you know, the kind that has a jar of bacon grease in the refrigerator! Yeah, that's me... I'm not the only one out there, am I? Anyway, he's the guy who loves kielbasa (pronounced cuh-bahss-eee, according to him and my mother in law!) and craves his mom's German-heritage meals like haluska.

Anyway, one of the weirdest things to me when we got together was how we differed on what eggs were called. If you put an egg in a hot pan and cook on both sides until the white is done but the yolk is runny, what do you call it?? He calls it "dippy eggs", I call it "fried".

I made some for breakfast this morning and it got me thinking - what does the rest of the world call it? Please leave a comment on this post and weigh in!!!

My 7 year old niece calls them dippy eggs - LOL! I call them over easy (medium or hard) eggs or, yes, fried. You are right :)

I call it over easy or fried... and am a very happy girl if they make it out of the pan whole and runny :)
