Egg as food. Eggs and ham sandwich. Eggs are laid by female animals of many different species, including birds, reptiles, amphibians, mammals, and fish, and have been eaten by humans for thousands of years. Bird and reptile eggs consist of a protective eggshell, albumen (egg white), and vitellus (egg yolk), contained within various thin membranes.
Sausages, Bacon and Duck Egg Fried Bread. Sausage, bacon and egg is a hugely popular breakfast but in this instance the egg is a duck egg fried in a slice of bread. If sausage, bacon and egg is your idea of a hearty breakfast to set you up for the day, this is one recipe you should definitely try.

Over easy: The egg is flipped and cooked for just a few seconds longer, enough to fully set the whites but leave the yolk completely runny. Watch our how to cook an over easy egg video below.

Whisk the eggs and milk together until well mixed. Meanwhile, melt a tablespoon of butter in a nonstick skillet over medium heat.
What Are Sunny-Side-Up Eggs? An egg cooked "sunny-side up" means that it is fried just on one side and never flipped. The yolk is still completely liquid and the whites on the surface are barely set. You can cover the pan briefly to make sure the whites are cooked or baste them with butter.
