My curiosity has been piqued: does anyone ever have their eggs coddled?
When I was a kid, I played with a couple of neighbourhood boys who were expatriate Brits. Sometimes, when I was invited to stay for lunch, we were served coddled eggs. When I told my mother about it, she had never heard of an egg coddler, so I had to explain to her what they were while she just shook her head, in wonder as to why such a device was necessary, I suppose.
Skip ahead many, many years... My father had passed away a few years previously, and my mother is packing a lot of stuff in preparation for downsizing from her house to a condominium. As we help her wrap and box items, lo and behold... two completely unused Royal Worcester egg coddlers, still in their original boxes. Needless to say, my request to have them was granted.
I used them once a couple of years ago, and again today when I saw the boxes hidden away at the back of a kitchen cupboard. Personally, this is my favourite way to cook eggs, even though it's an additional hassle, and even though I obviously don't do it often. While I was eating my egg lunch, I started to wonder whether anyone ever cooks eggs this way any more; hence, this poll.
Answer honestly, and without doing a Google search, wouldja?
