One version of a basted egg. Fry several pieces of bacon leaving the grease in the pan, crack two eggs in the pan and let them set up just a bit. Spoon the hot bacon grease over the yolks. YUM!

    ces1948, your post reminds me of family breakfasts in the mid 1950's at Grandma's farmhouse.  That was her method exactly, first fry up a ton of bacon, put it in the oven to stay warm, then she'd drop in about six eggs at a time and spoon the grease over just like that.  She could serve a lot of people in short order that way.
     
    After the meal, my dad and his brothers would go to the skillet on the stove and sop up what was left of the bacon grease with bread and eat it standing right there -- something the boys had done all their lives.  I did it with them, and it was sure good, but we didn't know about healthy eating in those days.
     
    But Grandma could sure turn out a breakfast.

      And THAT is how you baste an egg.

        I always do that, it makes them easier to flip for over easy because the hot grease sets the top of the yolk a little.

          I'm glad to know that after 45 years my favorite eggs are called "basted".

            Please make mine over medium (by the definition above) and served HOT (preferably on a prewarmed plate) Nothing cools and egg faster than putting it on 'cold china'.

            My ideal egg breakfast has 3 eggs over medium, some very crispy hash browns or home fries, a good-sized Chicken-fried Steak (8 oz minimum) with a cup of sausage gravy on the side for dipping.  A small shot of red Tabasco on each yolk of the eggs to give them that bloodshot eye look that appeals to me.  Sourdough toast with butter and Orange marmalade. and a glass of Milk, please.

             
            that sounds like a great breakfast....there's a place not far from my house called Ginghams which does this exact breakfast, although I can't speak specifically for the orange marmalade.  They do a nice handmade CFS with excellent home fries, and they definitely know how to cook an egg the way you want it.

                Mr. Hoffman, I am going to spend a few days in central Ohio next month, with my drumline and winter guard. We will be participating in the Scholastic World Championships. I will gladly bring you some of the world's finest bacon, if you will consent to baste me some eggs.   RSVP

                  It's a deal! lleechef and I are looking forward to it. And you don't even have to bring the bacon. Your company will be reward enough.

                      I love my eggs to be scrambled with cheese and to by fried in bacon drippings.

                        I like my eggs left in the kitchen.  Eggs and I do not get along.

                          Lleechef, it might be best to leave them in their shells.
                           
                          They're nasty when scrambled, but an omelet can be a delight.
                           
                          Don't ask me the difference.

                            I never order breakfast out unless its a buffet where I can eat all the bacon I want. It's too easy and cheap, so I just make it at home.

                            For the eggs, I scramble them in the pan with butter, put a little garlic salt and pepper. Take it off the heat while still runny, so they finish cooking on the plate. sometimes green Tabasco or Sriracha too.

                            I always thought scrambling the eggs before putting it in the pan was a plain omelet?

                              I grew up always getting scrambled eggs so by default that's what I order - but I've been expanding my horizons lately. I like over-hard, quite a bit. Even over-medium is good. When the yoke is too runny, though, I don't like that.

                                    My dad used to order his eggs "throwed down and stomped on."  That wasn't necessarily always his preference, he just liked to say that.
                                     
                                    For his potatoes, he would always ask to mix in those burnt bits at the edge of the grill that nobody else wanted.
                                     
                                    Well, he liked breakfast.  Especially if there was an Irish coffee available.

                                        I said Irish coffee.  Huh.  Is that a stereotype?  Did I just profile?
                                         
                                        And then I celebrated Wisconsin's drinking culture, which is certainly a subject of discussion around here. 
                                         
                                        I guess I am totally un-PC today.  Good !!

                                          No one has mentioned Coddled Eggs. I went thru a Coddled Egg stage several years ago. Bought an Egg Coddler in Bermuda after trying Coddled Eggs there while on vacation. Gave me a feeling of being rather European & Cosmopolitan I must say!
                                          Of course you need a proper Coddler like this one. It's a Royal Worcester like the one's used by the royal family! Taa, Taa!

                                            Only scrambled, hard boiled, omelet or deviled. Do not give me a runny yolk - ever! I will politely push my plate away and maybe even leave the table!

                                              My all time favourite way to eat eggs is soft boiled with dry toast to dip in the yolk. Since I only get that at home these days, when I'm out I get the over easy. Used to get them over medium, but most restaurants can't get that right these days and overcook them . So, over easy it is. Especially on a good sandwich.

                                                My father made the best 5 minute boiled egg. Anyone in my age group remembers the "egg cup" Beautiful little cups you cracked the tops off. Love boiled eggsthis way- to this day.

                                                  enjoy having a fried egg when having it with meat on a sammich. let the egg set but then break the yolk just before you flip it.

                                                    Over hard or scrambled. I hate runny yokes.

                                                      I like them poached, and never know what to ask for, so I describe "a soft yellow, with firm white," which is probably "medium" in the restaurant business.  Most of the time they're overcooked, which is fine.

                                                        When I wasn't eating 2-3 bowls of Frosted flakes or a bowl of oatmeal with added cocoa mix throughout Jr High & High school, I'd have a 3-5 minute, soft boiled egg served in an egg cup where we'd slice up buttered toast into 1-inch strips for dunking down into the egg yolk.  Haven't had one in many years.  May need to try one.

                                                          Well, to be honest, not really liking eggs at all, except in baked goods, I order them on someone else's plate. I Often trade my eggs for someone else's breakfast meat or potatoes.
                                                           
                                                          But.since I also have to cook for folks, my scrambled eggs are hardly touched once in the pan..until they are almost ready to set, when I add another egg.  A Short scramble and they come out firmish, but still soft
                                                           
                                                          For the 87 year old sweet lady for whom I used to cook, she liked a fried egg, but hated seeing the yellow eye.  I'd use bacon grease usually, but more importantly covered the pan.....there's enough residual white to color over the yolk so you still get a soft "sunnyside up" that looks white until you cut into it

                                                            I like them scrambled well ( dry. ) Wet eggs give me the willies.
