Amazing Eggs

What else makes an easy, economical breakfast, lunch, and dinner? Few other single foods do so much.




Incredible Egg Tools

Get the most out of your eggs with a few simple tools. Microwave egg boilers make flawless hard-cooked eggs every time. Egg slicers create perfect slices for attractive layered salads. Break out of the mold completely with an egg cuber--it magically transforms eggs into stackable cubes.


Whisk Away

Get specific. Scrambling eggs is easier with an egg scrambler, a small two-wire whisk that blends quickly. A large balloon whisk will whip whites or yolks efficiently by incorporating more air into each turn.


Dish It Up

Try eggs in quiches, frittatas, souffles, and egg bakes, or simply scrambled, poached, fried, or hard-boiled.

I agree that they aren't cheap. Bacon most definately is not. But If you think about eggs as being a main protein for dinner for a family of 4, 1 dozen eggs (store brand) will be around 2 dollars, which is pretty cheap say compared to a small pack of boneless chicken breasts, which will probably run twice as much.

I'm surprised they don't have directions on here to hard boil eggs. I never boil eggs anymore. If I want hard cooked eggs for say egg salad sandwiches or for adding to any recipe I steam them instead. They only take about 10 minutes and they peel so easily. They almost peel themselves. No more tearing the whites or ending up with only half an egg left when you'redone. Just put a steamer insert in a pan add water, place eggs in pan and cover. Bring water to a boil and turn down to a hard simmer and cook for 10 minutes. Remove from heat and plunge into ice water to stop the cooking.

kimb I wish you would create your own recipe for steaming eggs so that I could add it to my recipe box!

Helps to have your own chickens, like we do. Plus, our hens aren't crowded into cages and actually get to be chickens! Our little layers are prolific enough that we sell the surplus too.
