A friend of mine loves his eggs fried "sunny side up" with runny yolks, but he has been unable to find a Spanish phrase for this. He can get the eggs fried without turning them over, but they are always well done with hard yolks.

Can anyone help me with this?

Creo que te refieres al "huevo estrellado".Fried with a liquid yolk

Hello, Flanagan.

When the eggs are fried with runny yolks, we say "huevos poco hechos" in contrast to "huevos muy hechos" when they are fried with hard yolks. This is because of the time that is spent to fry them: if you fry them 2-3 minutes (poco hechos), then you get runny yolks, but if you fry it for more time (muy hechos), you will get hard yolks.

in Mexico is very common to say "Huevos estrellados" everyone will understand.

No se sí esto pueda ayudarte, pero en mi familia a los huevos fritos se les describía de la siguiente manera:

"Huevo Frito"--era el nombre general de todo huevo que no se revolvía, conservando la yema y la clara intacta.

"Medio cocido"--el huevo que por no cocinarse por completo conservaba la yema en su estado líquido, mientras la clara se cocinaba suficiente pero sin tostarse las orillas o la base. Creo que este equivaldría al "Sunny side-up" o "Easy."

"Cocido"--el huevo que se cocinaba suficiente para endurecer la yema y tostar las orillas de la clara. Este equivaldría al "Fried over-medium.¨

"Recocido"--el huevo que se cocinaba por ambos lados, el "over-cooked" en inglés.

En casa aprendimos que el reproche: "No saber hacer un huevo frito," era una sobre-simplificación, porque no era tan fácil cocinar un huevo con estas especifícaciones. Se necesitaba del talento y experiencia de nuestra madre para que quedara como se debía, redondito y tal como uno lo quería. Nosotros siempre optabamos por los "huevos quebrados," como se llama a los "scramble eggs" en El Salvador. Ahora, si alguien no puede cocinar "scramble eggs," entonces, estamos en problemas.
