  • I don't know but I eat them... no one ever told me not to. If it's not OK then I'm in trouble LOL.

  • I would say no, MAYBE just a little dippy but it's not okay to eat them that runny.

  • over easy eggs are technically a potential threat to everyone. Pregnant or not. The cooking process for 'over easy' usually does bring them to the minimum temperaturte required to kill salmonella.

  • I was told not to...but I went on an egg-eating binge somewhere around 20 weeks and ate over easy eggs for like a week. My daughter and I are perfectly healthy.

  • I read in a book that you are not supposed to. I am very paranoid though and go by the book on everything. I wouldnt do anything that COULD harm your baby.

  • I eat mine over-medium, so the yolk is still soft, but the egg white is completely done. No salmonella for me, lol.

  • do you buy pasteurized eggs? if you do then you can eat them raw if you want to :)
