Coddled eggs

I've had them for the last couple weeks on sunday, and they were good. The first time I cooked them a little too long, and sunday I cooked an egg with a little cheese and herbs for exactly 8 minutes, perfect.
I'm considering buying a bigger set of coddlers, mine just hold one egg plus a bit.


anyone else enjoy these? ~Bliss

Oh yes! We love them. Haven't had them in a very long time. Maybe this weekend I'll get our coddlers out... ham and cheese is always good.

Here are my basic instructions for them.
Chop up some bacon, or italian sausage and start frying.
Fill a deeper pan with 2 small coddlers and water right up the screw on covers.
Take the coddlers out and start to heat pan to get it boiling.
Keep your eye on the meat and take it out when it is done.
Butter the coddlers on the inside.
Chop up or shred a little cheese and put some in each coddler.
Break one egg into each coddler.
Season with salt and pepper and I like garlic or some basil.
Once the water is boiling in the pot, place the coddlers on. Set the timer to 8 minutes exactly.
When the time is up, serve the bacon or sausage with the egg coddler, on a plate, take the cover off the coddler after placing it on the plate, enjoy it right out of the coddler with a spoon.
It's such a nice presentation, Yum! ~Bliss
PS. You will have a little moisture on the top, don't mistake it for uncooked white. Once I get some larger coddlers I'll have to figure the timing on two eggs with a little cheese.
Give it a try. It reminds me of the soft boiled eggs my mom made when I was a little kid.

My friend Andy use to have a set of two that looked identical--he bought them at a Church sale in Shaker Heights.

How wonderfully quaint!

I tried to find a link for you to see how they look. Coddled eggs can be hard cooked or soft boiled in consistency depending on how long you cook them. I like the white cooked and the yolk hot and runny.
I like the coddled ones better because they are seasoned before cooking and I like a little cheese and it melts while cooking.

Here is a link with clear coddlers--down the page. (you can even do it in foil covered ramikins if you like)
Coddled Eggs

It's kind of a comfort food for me. When I was growing up my mom would make us soft boiled eggs and slice the top off, and they sat in egg cups. Like this:

I got these cuties for Christmas. We have been making soft boiled egg at least twice a week since. Coddled eggs sound good. I would like to try them although I would use custard cups since I have them in the house. I like eggs with stuff in :)

Sounds great Bliss... I have heard the term, but never realized that was how it is done.
