New Gadget - Flower Petal Egg Poacher

I got a present! From Cass! And it's sooooo pretty. It's a tulip-shaped egg poacher. You can also use it for making custards or little cakes.

Now, you can of course poach eggs using nothing more than some hot water and an egg. However, Cassandra believes that when you do something (even if it's as mundane as poaching eggs), you should do it in style. I agree! These little flower cups are adorable and they make your eggs so pretty, and therefore more delicious!

First, simmer some water in a pan, grease your silicone flower cup and crack an egg into it.

Place your pretty tulip with raw egg in the simmering water, cover, and cook for 6-8 minutes (I did 6, since I'm becoming more and more fond of runny eggs).

Turn cooked eggs upside down onto a nice pile of sauteed onion, mushrooms, and kale (seasoned with balsamic vinegar, nutmeg, salt and pepper) and top with freshly grated parmesan cheese.

Isn't it gorgeous? Goes really well with prosecco!!!

Thanks, Cass - once again, you have improved my style!
