Egg cup

Discover AZ-Boutique’s range of hard-boiled or soft-boiled egg cups to glam-up your brunch or breakfast table. This type of egg holder is a small tableware item in the shape of an upwardly concave bucket resting on a foot. The egg cup is an important tableware and serveware element at breakfast time or during meals where soft-boiled eggs or hard boiled eggs can be served as a main course for a quick breakfast ! It has to be noted however that this is a very continental tableware item which is still less known in America. Traditionally, an egg is served cooked in its shell to eat it "soft-boiled", the egg must be cooked so that the white is well cooked and the yolk is still liquid. Simply cook the egg for about 3 minutes in boiling water and remove with a colander. If you are looking for easy breakfast ideas simply, sprinkle the eggs with some chives and shredded cheese and enjoy with a slice of toasted bread. The egg cup also called egg server, usually made of porcelain, sandstone or glass, can also accommodate soft eggs (with a slightly thicker yolk) or even hard eggs.

How to enjoy a soft-boiled egg in an egg cup?

Creamy soft boiled eggs are traditionally eaten with a spoon and mouillettes (also called piquettes): small strips of bread that can be buttered and toasted. Crack, shell and season your egg, dip your toast in the yolk and enjoy! For a yummy touch serve your egg cup with turkey sausage, chopped ham, ramekins of parmesan cheese or cheddar and veggies for a healthy breakfast.

Desperately looking for a breakfast recipe? For breakfast, as a starter or as a main course with nice side dishes, boiled eggs can do wonders. For an original appetizer, the boiled egg will be a guaranteed success! As the first child's meal of the day, the shell egg undeniably has its advantages: a real tasty protein concentrate that will delight toddlers!

What is the ideal egg holder to enjoy your eggs for a perfect breakfast or a snack?

To enjoy a soft-boiled egg, you must choose the ideal egg cup that will hold your egg vertically. The egg cup is ideal for peeling your hard-boiled egg or runny soft-boiled egg. It is placed on a saucer or a small flat plate used to collect the egg shell. For a delightful tasting experience, you can choose extra-fresh eggs or organic eggs. Of course, don't forget to place next to the stainless steel spoon, butter dish, salt shaker and pepper mill as well as a pretty bread basket for an optimal tasting moment! The ideal egg cup, whether made of stoneware, porcelain or glass, is aesthetic, stable, ultra-resistant, durable and dishwasher safe.

White porcelain egg cup, egg cup set, sandstone egg server or glass egg holder

Did you know that? Egg cups are much sought after collectible items and their collection even has a name:  pocillovy! The egg cup has been silversmith's product for two millennia. We even found a silver egg cup in the remains of Pompeii! In the Middle Ages, it was called "ovier" and did not have the same shape. It was only in 1520 that the egg cup took its present form. In wood, earthenware, porcelain, solid gold or silver, there are also vintage egg cups that are sold at very expensive prices, prized by pocillovy enthusiasts in search of old and ever more original egg cups.

If you want to offer an original gift to your loved ones, the porcelain egg cup is a golden idea!
