Eierbecher German Egg Cups for a Soft Boiled Egg
We always had German Egg Cups in the house, I still do, because I love a Soft-Boiled Egg. I tried to order one in a restaurant once, but my mom stopped me, and told me her story about Eggs. When she first arrived in America, she and my father had breakfast in a restaurant. Mom ordered a soft boiled egg. When it arrived at the table, it was served in a cereal bowl.
Like this…. With a tablespoon
She had no idea how she was supposed to eat it. What would hold the egg up?
German Egg Cups -Eierbecher
Every Sunday, and often during the rest of the week we got a nice warm soft boiled egg to start our day. There were even little covers (shaped like chickens) to keep the eggs warm.
We were taught early to give the egg a good whack with a knife to get the top off. And then put the shells in the egg cup under the egg, so we don’t make a mess on the table! (Honestly, I cringe when I see people putting their broken shell bits on the place mat or tablecloth next to their plate…)Soft Boiled Egg Recipe
I love the smooth feel of just-solid egg white, and the creaminess of still liquid egg yolk, delicious. It’s still my favorite way to eat an egg. (If you need a recipe for Soft boiled eggs… look here.. )
