    All about eggs

    Dear teachers,

    Are there any equivalents in BE for "Over Easy" and "Sunny Side Up"?
    Thanks.

    This is strictly anecdotal, but in all my travels to the UK eggs were only ever served one way at breakfast - fried (sort of sunny-side up, but not quite as runny as I like). Servers in restaurants never asked "How would you like your eggs?" when we ordered a breakfast plate.
