What do British people mean when they talk about a "squishy egg" sandwich? Are we talking about a simple omelette between 2 slices of bread? Or a fried egg over easy, or what?

I've never been sure what "over easy" even means...

Think it means just flipped over to turn the yolk white...but still runny...we like 'em sunny side up!

Hmm, for us it was a very slowly simmered "soft" boiled egg. I can't do it here in UK.

When I was small we lived at altitude for fifteen years where boiling point was only 85 C, so everything took longer to cook, but it did mean that you could have an egg where the yolk and white we BOTH part cooked, ie neither runny nor set.

And this was a heavenly snack when spread on big slices of home baked hot buttered toast as yellow and white streaks on a chilly afternoon as soon as we got home from school. Our own hens too. You've woken up a long forgotten memory from the 1950s there!

Is that is a bit like what you suggested?

I like them just fried. No sunny anythings involved.

An egg "over easy" means you spoon hot fat from the pan over the yolk to turn it white and just seal the surface. It's the way I like my eggs.

When I was young, RF my Mum used to cook eggs like that, then spoon them out of the shell onto soft, well buttered sliced bread and mix it all up. Used to love it.

Looks like what constitutes a "squishy egg sandwich" is open to debate....sigh. I'll stick with simple omelette sandwich.

I'm the opposite can't stand hard yolks. I always get the perfect one, the rest have to take pot luck.
