"thin" cooked egg yolks.. what could they be doing?

Scott_R | Jul 20, 2014 10:33 AM

I've gone to this place that's supposedly known for good egg sandwiches--farm eggs on house-made cheddar biscuits.

Not only have they failed, three out of three times, to give me an over-easy egg (the closest might arguably have been over-medium), they cook the eggs in a way I've never done or had done.

Somehow, the yolk come out all... thin. That is, cut the sandwich in half, and the cross-section of the yolk part of the egg is like 2 or so millimeters thick.

I've cooked lots of eggs, and my yolks are never so flattened. What on earth are they DOING to those eggs?
