Coddling is a gentle steaming method that yields a tender egg. The eggs are cooked individually in coddling cups-ceramic cups with screw-on lids available at kitchen-supply stores. Four-ounce baby-food jars can be used as well. Garnish with chopped herbs, onion, or cooked bacon.
Havent tried this yet but I now have 2 pretty official egg coddlers bought in antique stores. They were made in England of porcelain and now I can't wait to try it, tomorrow being Sunday, the only day of the week we have eggs for breakfast!
I have always wanted to try coddled eggs.. Been told and read they are much better than your traditional ways of poaching and wanted to try it. Being a senior I couldn't afford the prices being charged online and in stores. So I purchased mini canning jars from the Dollarama.. Made this morning for breakfast. Added cream, little chopped bacon, cheddar cheese and was very pleased with the results.. I am greatful for your jar tip and pleased with the end result of a perfect breakfast for one..
