A very tricky subject I use as shown in the pic a limited edition Bolas DE Fraile velcro egg cup.
I glue the female part of the velcro inside the cup and glue the female part onto the egg, if you dont have velco handy well chewed bubble gum will work.

What a great idea, Bolas!
Do you folks get the same kind of bubble gum that those of us in the US get? I can only imagine that our bubble gum isn't as sticky as it used to be

Guy and Dolls, we need to resolve the op's question. Seriously, get a bit of gum rubber and glue it to the inside of the egg holder. A balloon should provide the required rubber. That should hold the egg still. And, you get to choose the rubber color.

I got an egg cup in Germany with left handed threads. you screw the egg in and it stays put.

unfortunately it's of no use in USA because over here the hens all lay eggs with English threads, not metric.

Use two hands. One to hold the spoon and the other to hold the egg.
