So one day while I was "browsing" in Sur La Table kitchen store I came across these super cute poached egg holders. They are made of silicone from a company called SiliconeZone. Of course I had to buy them. You get two holders for $8.00.
And I'm happy to report they work beautifully. Boil some water in a pot. Butter the egg holder, add the egg and some salt and pepper. Place poacher in the pot of simmering water. Cover. Cook for 6-8 minutes. Done. Serve in the poacher or turn upside down and remove. You can also run a knife around the edge and it will gently fall out. That's what I do.
I love finding gadgets like this that work, are cute, and don't take up much space in the kitchen. Anyone else have any gadgets they use that you think I might like? I'd love to hear about them.
