Should fried eggs be runny?

Similar to sunny-side up, when you make fried eggs over-easy, you want the yolk to barely get cooked. It should still be very runny and intact. The only real difference between sunny-side up and over-easy eggs is that an egg made over-easy is flipped once while being cooked.

Is it safe to eat a fried egg with runny yolk?

The yolk is typically protected from infection by the egg whites. So by cooking the whites and thus killing any possible bacteria in them, the egg should still be safe to eat, even if the yolk is still runny.

Why is my fried egg watery?

How do you tell if fried eggs are undercooked?

Cook or bake until a thermometer inserted at the center shows 160° F or a knife inserted near the center comes out clean. You may find it difficult to tell if a knife shows uncooked egg or melted cheese in some casseroles and other combination dishes that are thick or heavy and contain cheese – lasagna, for example.
