  1. I’ve never coddled an egg, but as I frequently enjoy piling eggs on toast I’d sure love to acquire a coddler – especially one as darling as those. I feel like egg coddlers are one of those items one occasionally comes across at tag sales that you pick up, admire, and then put back down because you’re not sure what it is at all.

  2. Katherine I love coddled eggs but I have never owned an egg coddler. What a gorgeous post, yours are just gorgeous! I love coming to your site because it’s always so, so pretty here!! Love to you my friend! xo

  3. I don’t think I have ever heard of coddling eggs. The coddlers are beautiful…yes that would be a great new uses idea! I really love the toast soldiers and that all they are are strips of toast, I love the simplicity of them; in our hurry up world I don’t think there is enough left to the imagination. I want to make my boy some, I feel lucky that he is very imaginative and he would really enjoy them! 😀

  4. I have never made coddled eggs but I saw one of these “coddlers” at a thrift shop the other day and thought to myself “how beautiful….how could I use it?”! I’m rushing back there next week to hopefully purchase it! I love this!! Happy weekend and thank you!~~Angela

  8. Hi Katherine, What gorgeous egg coddlers. Just lovely. I am a great fan of poached eggs as well as coddled eggs.
    I hope your weekend is relaxing and wonderful!

    1. Hello Annie, thank you. The one I use regularly ( on the plate in the photo) is looking a little bit worn. I’d love to add a few more to my cupboard. Hugs and happy weekend wishes!

  9. I’ve never had coddled eggs, not sure I ever knew how to coddle one ~ but I do now! What pretty containers. I’ve seen them in antique stores but never knew how they were used. Great idea for collecting! And they are so pretty! Thanks for sharing….Now I know

  10. This also reminds me of my childhood. We didn’t have coddled eggs, but my folks loved soft boiled ones and we had these cute little egg stands. I used to love dipping “toast fingers” into those runny eggs….it’s funny, I can’t remember what I had to eat last week, but when I looked read your post I remember the smells from having soft boiled eggs as a child. I think the egg coddler is a “cracking” idea. I could totally see this style of cooking eggs making a comeback. I’m not sure what it’s like in your neck of the woods, but brunch is now the new “it” meal to have on weekends and something like this would be great for that. Thanks for sharing some of your childhood and introducing some of us to coddled eggs. 🙂

    1. Hi Trevor, I am always happy to learn something I share sparks a happy memory. I still have soft boiled eggs often and yes I have several if those little egg cups.:-) Hubby and I enjoy brunch regularly, We live in suburbia, I’m not sure if we have an “it meal” giggle. Being the foodies that we are I think they all are 🙂 hugs P.S. You “crack” me up

  11. My mom made those. I wonder where those coddlers went? Probably in a rummage sale. She used to make soft boiled eggs too. New memories and a new dish to ponder. Thanks for sharing. Have a nice weekend.


  12. What a lovely blog post. I’d never heard of coddled eggs…is that a British term? It sounds like poached eggs, which I love. I saw your post on Google+. Happy to have found your blog. 🙂

    1. Hello Mary, It does originate in England ( where I am from) but it has been in the US for a very long time too. not sure of the history of it all but if you like poached eggs you’ll like coddled eggs. Thank you so much for finding me. Big Hugs!
