Nice technique! I usually poach my eggs and sometimes they just seem a little too watery, this solves that. I will be using your method again. Thank you for posting!

There is a name for this. "Basted eggs." It's less well known than the other standard techniques for preparing eggs, so good luck ordering it out, but a well trained chef will know what you are talking about if you ask for basted eggs. It's certainly not "over easy".

Thanks for posting! This has got to be the easiest/mess-free way to cook eggs, besides scrambled of course :0)

I have had a history of breaking yolks when making over easy eggs. It has been so bad that my husband has pretty much given up and just expects scrambled eggs. This recipe/method has changed everything! I successfully was able to serve him perfectly cooked, yolk intact, eggs this morning for breakfast!

I do the same thing - it came to me a while ago that this was how to get sunnyside up eggs with the tops cooked - I hate uncooked egg whites - without the danger of busting the yolks as with easy-over. It works perfectly.

I have been making fried eggs this way for years. They are so much easier to make. When you are in a restaurant, request "basted" eggs when the waitress asks how you like them.
