Okay, the egg discussion has renewed my interest in finding really good farm-fresh eggs so I did a google search and found, of all things, a local bar that sells them (and for only $3/dozen!) so, on our way home from the opera tonight, I've asked DH if we could stop at the bar and pick up some eggs (he laughed...and it turns out his dad used to distribute eggs from the same supplier AND he happens to know the manager of the bar).

Everything is better with hollandaise. 
Ok, maybe not everything.  But, most things.

I chose "Other" because I'll eat eggs pretty much anyway they're cooked, barring sunny-side up. It depends on what I'm eating them with/for, though, really. For a sandwich, I prefer either scrambled or over hard. If I'm eating them alone, usually I do over easy or over medium (dippy eggs for the win!), but then again, I love them hard-boiled too, as a snack or as one of my all-time favorite foods - pickled eggs (red pickled eggs, not yellow ones).

I guess overall I need to go with PPs who said, "Cooked!" :) I'll eat eggs almost any way one can make them.

Oh, and Chicken In A Basket (or as I've called them before, Eggies In A Basket) is pretty amazing. My Mom used to make it for me all the time as a kid. I made some for Mr. Bottlecaps here a while back and he fell in love with it!

I gave into temptation.  I made bacon, fried egg and cheese sandwiches for lunch.  Everybody in the house is now happy.  Well, except the dogs.  The dogs didn't get any bacon.

Eveey weekend DH makes himself english muffins with bacon, egg and cheese. He loves it. The cat likes to lick the baon fat out of the pan!

I remember our first XMAS as a married couple.  Got up made a nice bacony breakfast and went back to bed for a nap.  Heard weird noise. Got up to find our cat Bear had pretty much bathed in the bacon drippings left in the skillet.  he had licked up a great deal of it and seemed to have the rest rubbed into his fur. He got a bath for XMAS>

Scrambled, well done.

I actually have an aversion to most ways eggs are cooked. I prefer to cook them myself to get the done to my comfort level. When I eat out, I rarely order eggs because most cooks refuse to cook eggs past half-raw (just my opinion).

Now, when eggs are incorporated into other dishes as a binding ingredient, I have no issue. But omelets, quiche, and similar egg dominant dishes are not on my menu.
