egg-sactly . The big question
Good morning everyone, hope you are all well. I have another long and busy day ahead but hey ho, I'll make it through. I have been reading and participating in these polls and they are great fun. So I figured I would like to have a go at creating one. I thought long and hard about what I could ask people. What deep an meaningful poll could I create that would reveal a glimpse of the human spirit, of our understanding of our place in the universe. And so I am straight in with a biggy. Egg yolks - runny or hard? This debate has been ongoing for a long time now, (I say debate, it's not really, if you think yolks should be hard, you are just wrong). But now this site gives us the opportunity to set the record straight once and for all :)
Yes, I am cool and think egg yolks should be runny
Ive got it all wrong and think egg yolks should be hard. I need to go away and re think my life

I hate egg yolks that are runny. I actually hate egg yolks unless they are hard boiled eggs. I need to rethink my entire life now. Sigh! ;)

I can't think of much worse than the yolk of a hard boiled egg. Yuck! Differences are what make the world interesting :)

You should have had a third option - who the hell eats eggs they are disgusting!!
ison1 wrote on January 6, 2015, 5:42 AM
hahaha, I hadn't thought about that possibility. Doh, my first poll and I messed it up

I don't eat eggs I only use them for baking with. The thought of a runny yolk!!!! Yuk!

What I love about this poll is how unbiased it is. I am torn, I think egg yolks should be scrambled.
phoenixmaid wrote on January 6, 2015, 5:59 AM
Haahaa I'm not voting because I eat Dead eggs, the yolk has to be pulverised, smashed, beaten, hung drawn and quartered!!! What ever it takes to ensure that no vomit inducing orange gooiness makes it's way into the mouth.

ison1 lol, even though you tried so hard to intimidate us, hard egg lovers; we are making a statement, we will not be manipulated. Hard, smashed out, scrambled, either way; anything but runny, (finger in my throat, yuk).
lucyluuk wrote on January 6, 2015, 6:59 AM
I don't touch eggs so I wouldn't opt for either hard or runny (ugh) but my husband prefers runny yolks but usually gets hard because I have no idea how to cook them without them going hard!!
kat123456 wrote on January 6, 2015, 7:02 AM
Definitely runny for me - that's the best thing about eating eggs
maxeen wrote on January 6, 2015, 7:08 AM
I can't believe so many don't like a nice boiled egg,nice and runny....
Gina145 wrote on January 6, 2015, 7:56 AM
Definitely runny, though I do eat hard-boiled eggs sometimes too.
I love the polls at PP. I think it's time for me to create another one. Now I just need to think of a nice important topic like this one :)
ison1 wrote on January 6, 2015, 8:11 AM
Oh a runny yolk is the best, how else could you dip your soldiers?
ison1 wrote on January 6, 2015, 8:12 AM
Hehehe, it was so difficult to remain neutral in setting up this poll :)
ison1 wrote on January 6, 2015, 8:14 AM
Mmmm....orange yolky gooiness. Dipping my soldiers in to it. Yummy :)
ison1 wrote on January 6, 2015, 8:14 AM
The people are speaking, and at a resounding 2:1 ratio in favour of runniness
ison1 wrote on January 6, 2015, 8:16 AM
Hello :) I normally have to ask for a runny egg at hotels because they always end up hard
ison1 wrote on January 6, 2015, 8:16 AM
Yes! welcome to the cool club. Runny yolk lovers only :)
ison1 wrote on January 6, 2015, 8:17 AM
You know? Eggs with a lovely runny yolk is just a thing of beauty :)
ison1 wrote on January 6, 2015, 8:19 AM
Yay! You are cool too Gina :) I'm sure you'll be able to think of a poll just as vital. LOL
phoenixmaid wrote on January 6, 2015, 9:13 AM
That's Just Evil..mr...pfftt that's it! I am sending your picture to every café, hotel, restaurant and pub in the country with strict insrtructions to sabotage any of your future egg orders :P
Feisty56 wrote on January 6, 2015, 10:15 AM
Ah, but see, this question is more than simply that of runny or hard egg yolks. An underlying consideration is the healthiness of said yolk. Not only do those of us who prefer our yolks to be like small orange volcanoes when we pierce them, we are defying illness at the same time. That's right, I've said it: People who prefer and eat runny egg yolks are adventurers! (You know that an egg not fully cooked can potentially harbor illness-causing bacteria right?)
LadyDuck wrote on January 6, 2015, 10:22 AM
It depends what you have to do with the eggs. If you have to decorate a toast, of course, the yolk must be hard. If you eat boiled egg with toasted bread in the morning it has to be runny. The less is cooked the most digestible the yolk is, this on the medical note
paigea wrote on January 6, 2015, 10:37 AM
What 's the point of an egg if I can`t dip my toast in it?
ison1 wrote on January 6, 2015, 11:02 AM
oh yes, but that only prove the point that runny egg yolk eaters are cool. We live life in the edge!
ison1 wrote on January 6, 2015, 11:04 AM
I didn't about the digestible aspect. I don't eat any egg that has a hard yolk
ison1 wrote on January 6, 2015, 11:05 AM
Exactly! :) Welcome the the cool corner of the room hehehe
paigea wrote on January 6, 2015, 11:14 AM
Thank you. And welcome to Persona Paper!
inkedwriter wrote on January 6, 2015, 11:30 AM
I wwnt with runny, but it depends on the situation. If I have sausage or toast to dip in the yolk, it's all good. If not, I prefer the yolk hard.

In Gulliver's travels Lilliput are in civil war over how best to do their eggs - you could be really starting something here - I'm pro runny yolk

Why not !
rebel_woman06 wrote on January 6, 2015, 11:06 PM
I like eating hard boiled egg . And i also Like it scrambled with lots of sliced tomatoes.
Ruby3881 wrote on January 7, 2015, 2:58 AM
I tend to like my boiled eggs a little closer to hard-cooked, but for fried or poached the yolks must be runny. Anything else is just wrong :P
candykane wrote on January 7, 2015, 7:32 AM
This is exactly how I feel about egg yolks. If they're runny, I don't even touch it. It's even hard for me to look at it.
Louemham wrote on January 7, 2015, 6:21 PM
Runny eggs all the way! Or dippy eggs as I like to call them, however I am useless at getting them JUST right. They either end up too hard or undercooked! I am not a whizz in the kitchen haha
ison1 wrote on January 7, 2015, 6:48 PM
I just cannot eat an egg if it hasn't got a runny yolk
ison1 wrote on January 7, 2015, 6:49 PM
I must admit the reponse was greater than I expected :)
ison1 wrote on January 7, 2015, 6:52 PM
Hello :) I really don't like scrambled eggs, my wife does though
ison1 wrote on January 7, 2015, 6:53 PM
hehehe, yes, it is indeed just wrong
ison1 wrote on January 7, 2015, 6:54 PM
You are definitely in the cool corner too! And a new phrase - dippy eggs, I like that:)
Ambermol wrote on January 8, 2015, 6:40 AM
Boiled eggs to be eaten warm should have runny yolks, those to be eaten cold should be hard boiled. The egg whites should never, ever be runny (bleugh!)
Just my opinion :)
ison1 wrote on January 8, 2015, 8:12 AM
Hello:) I agree about the whites. I don't think an egg should ever be eaten cold
Ambermol wrote on January 8, 2015, 9:24 AM
Why ever not?! No hard boiled egg with a packet of crisps on a picnic? No Scotch Eggs? No "Ooh! there's a hard boiled egg!" when you open the fridge with the munchies? Sprinkle it with salt and try to fit it all in your mouth in one go?
ison1 wrote on January 8, 2015, 9:40 AM
No,no,no and no! eww, yuck. Eggs are a hot food, like baked beans
Ambermol wrote on January 9, 2015, 6:18 AM
I beg to differ. My dad used to eat cold baked beans straight from the tin :)
WordChazer wrote on January 14, 2015, 3:06 PM
Of cOURSE egg yolks need to be runny! How else to eat your toast but dipped in runny yolk like you used to as a kid with toasted soldiers.
ison1 wrote on January 14, 2015, 4:32 PM
hehehe, you are aof course completely correct.
BNelson wrote on January 30, 2015, 11:28 PM
The main concern for me is that the eggs are from free range (proper free range - cage free) hens.
GemstonePink wrote on February 19, 2015, 7:25 PM
If I had to eat an egg, I would not want a runny one. Eggs, if served alone, make me cringe. Not an egg fan.
