Wilt u een gebakken eitje?

How do you say: "Would you like a fried egg?" in German/French/Italian/Spanish/any other language?
(+ "With ham and cheese?")

For my job (breakfast lady at a hotel) I have to offer our guests a gebakken eitje. Sometimes there are guests who don't speak any English (or not enough), so I have to point to the griddle and say "egg?", hoping they will understand.

So, I thought it would be nice to learn how to ask this in as many different languages as possible. Any help would be greatly appreciated! :)
