    No difference. Also, "eggs up" vs. "eggs over" or "eggs over easy" or "eggs over hard".

    Am I correct in assuming that 'eggs over easy' have a yolk that is still runny and 'eggs over hard' have a more solid yolk?

    Yes. Over easy, over hard, over medium describe how hard the yolk is.

    Thanks. Have you any idea where the 'easy over' comes from?

    It's "over easy." As in "flip the egg over and cook it lightly, so the yolk is still runny."

    Eggs "up" or "sunny side up" are not flipped.
