How to Eat an Egg in a Cup

Save

There are many ways to eat an egg, and if you like your egg slightly runny and soft-boiled, try eating it out of an egg cup. An egg cup is a special cup designed to hold one egg. It holds the shell steady as you spoon out the soft yolk and egg white. A soft-boiled egg may be boiled anywhere from 2 to 10 minutes, and an egg cup allows you to eat the egg neatly and efficiently.

Things You'll Need

  • Soft-boiled egg
  • Egg cup
  • Knife
  • Egg spoon
  • Place the soft-boiled egg in the depression in the egg cup, broad end down.

  • Tap the sharp edge of a dinner knife around the top of the narrow end, creating a break around the top of the egg.

  • Use the knife to carefully slice away the top of the egg shell and the inner membrane. Work carefully to minimize any spillage.

  • Use an egg spoon to eat the soft-boiled egg out of the shell. You may also stir the yolk and the white together.

Tips & Warnings

  • If you do not have a dinner knife close at hand, use the handle of the spoon if it is sharp enough.
  • The longer the egg is boiled, the more solid the white will be. If you are worried about making a mess, boil the egg longer.
