The only way I DON'T like eggs is when the whites are runny. I love hot, runny yolks, though.
The most nostalgic way of eating eggs is soft-boiled over torn bits of toast with salt and pepper. I had strep throat often as a kid and my dad would fix eggs this way for me. It was easy on my throat as long as the toast was not crispy.
We're having quiche tonight for dinner.

OH! I had totally forgotten about this.. when I was little, my grandma made it and called it "toad in the hole." Which I was ALL about.
eta-- i just looked at that link carefully and they seem to think that toad-in-the-hole is not that but something else! they're wrong!!! lol.
I can't think of a way I do not like eggs. I do not like eggs overcooked and I do not like the whites runny, that is about it.
I have never had pickled eggs, I am not eating that.
scrambled (but only when DH makes them for me)
deviled - but then I only eat the yolks
in the hole...
Yum! I love eggs

I'm off to make that for breakfast now!
Shirred eggs are my 2nd favorite. Put minced garlic and some olive oil or butter in a small ramekin (like you'd use for creme brulee) and put them in a preheated low oven (I usually use the toaster oven) till hot. Pull it out and crack in 2 eggs and sprinkle thyme or dill on top. Then cook in the oven till the whites are mostly firm while the yolks stay runny. Maybe finish it with a bit of fresh grated Parmesan cheese and eat it with toast.

That said, I like eggs, and we have free range chickens. We eat LOTS of eggs.
egg and bacon sandwiches
eggs and asparagus
hard boiled eggs
the list goes on
southern scramble (over biscuits w/sausage gravy!)
I have a cookbook w/about 100 egg recipes.

My middle ds likes eggs fried hard, which is difficult for me to even watch him eat, but I'm a nice mama, and I cook them for him.
I like eggs fried over light. Yum! dippy yellows. I also love eggs benedict (and eat it every New Years' Day), egg salad, deviled eggs, eggs scrambled soft, egg tacos/burritos, and pretty much any other way I can get them.
I often have them sunny side up over baby spinach or arugula, or over hard as an egg sandwich (we always had them over hard growing up - having branched out recently myself since they've become a personal favorite).
And I really didn't mean that I don't eat eggs *any* other way - it's just that my go-to egg style has been sunny for all my life, and I just discovered that ya know... without bread that's just not that fun. Over is much nicer.
Soft boiled with butter, corn flakes and garlic salt was another way we ate them growing up.
Poached in milk over toast (milk and all)
I will say I also love poached on a good sourdough toast with rosemary brown butter
And I can't believe nobody's mentioned Scotch eggs.
Oh, and we've been eating a lot of souffle pancakes lately.
And ice cream is always a great way to eat them - although I only use the yolks in mine.

I eat the whites first. Then I dip the toast in the liquid yoke part. The firmer yoke I then put on top of the remaining toast & enjoy

Quiche-any way possible, sometimes with a crust, sometimes without.
Always have hard boiled on hand for the kids.
Toad in the hole for a portable breakfast
My fave-scrambled, over baby field greens or baby spinach, with a light sesame dressing! Glass of Chablis, and I'm happy!
At home: Egg in a hole/toad in a hole, done in the cast iron skillet with lots of butter.
