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

As soon as they set up their new home, mom sent for Eierbecher,  German Egg cups and Eierloeffel (egg spoons).  She even ordered mini salt cellars so we could each have our own at the table.

german egg cupsEvery 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.. )

  1. YES! I have some plastic ones from Germany, complete with covers that my mom gave me years ago. Very ’70’s looking design. Hubby doesn’t understand why I keep them around as he’s used to peeling the soft boiled egg and breaking it up in a bowl.

  2. 🙂 I have the GDR ones. I brought them when I moved here. They are plastic and look like chickens. My husband found them really funny when I brought them out for our first German breakfast.

      1. I lived there 12 years in 3 places total and still crack the egg with my hands and put each half on a brotchen and eat it and do not waste the time cracking the egg and scooping it out because egg white is usually still visible on the inside and little specks of shell are not nice to crunch on.
        Plus I hated when someone from my family would tell me,

        One eats this way– That is so ____retarded!
        All 82 million do not do everything the same way and if so that is robotic!
        I like the eierbecher just to start with the breakfast, but I am not so in love with it where my egg is glued to it until I retire
