One of my most memorable restaurant dishes featured softly scrambled egg with chopped chives in a perfect whole egg shell with just a tiny lid cut off the shell and replaced to lean gently over the top. When you lifted up the lid, you found caviar on top of the scrambled egg. The egg was served in a traditional plain egg cup.

It was a brilliant presentation...but I have no idea how they did it so beautifully.

Oooh I love! Bit pricey for a stocking stuffer though.

I've seen soft boiled eggs eaten in the shell...in b&w movies, lol. I've always wanted to try them that classy, room service way.

I grew up with soft boiled eggs eaten in the shell in an egg cup. My grandmother had a set of egg cups (I sometimes wonder who ended up with them - I never saw them again after she passed away), and she taught us very early on how to properly eat a soft boiled egg. I'm not sure that I liked the egg so much as it was fun to do.

Take the spoon and gently crack a ring around the pointy end about 1/2 inch down, pop the shell off, pick off one or two loose shell fragments and eat. It was like getting to play with your food without being chastised for it.

This is what my Gramma's looked like. The big end is for hard boiled eggs - the small end is for soft.

Why didn't they have all these neat little kitchen tools when I was raising my family? Of course Woolworth's only carried the least expensive items. And with four kids, it became my favorite store.

OMG I have never thought of eating soft boiled eggs any other way but in an egg cup! How do you eat them if you don't use an egg cup??

Rick, I have a couple of egg cups like that, but we use the large end to keep a second egg warm while we eat the first. We always have two soft boiled eggs....and toast soldiers on the side, of course!

We always had them on toast or hash browns when I was a kid.

That must involve a lot of rather messy unpeeling for the person serving, surely?? Doesn't the yolk run all over the place if you aren't careful??
