Great fun for me and my 6 y.o.
on August 10, 2011
I'm trying to incorporate more protein into my little fruit and veggie eater. So far, we've got her enjoying steak, tofu and chicken.
Eggs are enjoyed tremendously, but mostly hard boiled. I let her peel eggs, but she makes a mess (as do I). Then I heard her yell from the TV room "Mommy! Just 14.99 plus esss and aitch"
I said no. No freaking way. I fall victim to late night TV ads, (thanks for nothing, Abdominator!) but only when I am drinking red wine.
I did find them later at our local Walgreens for 9.99 plus NO shipping and handling, and I bought them.
So far, we've made scrambled hard boiled eggs, hard boiled eggs with parmesan and butter, hard boiled eggs with spinach and herbs...basically, in 4 days we've made over a dozen hard boiled specialty eggs. We haven't even tried to devil them.
Cons: there are SEVERAL parts to each single "eggie", which is a pain. I tried to wash them in my nipple/collar dishwasher cage for bottles, but the egg white stuck around. Good thing I have a 6 y.o. daughter, I set her to washing them out with soap and water.
Oiling didn't work. The next times we tried it, I swabbed the whole internal eggie with margerine or butter. THAT WORKS. Plus, the eggs taste great.
They are not beautiful. They are perfect for kid lunches, egg salad, and other egg recipes. A lot of people who have their own chickens like them because they don't have to "age" the eggs (fresh eggs apparently are hard to pull shells off of without making craters. I thought it was my own personal lack of ability to cook eggs.) Anyway, for 10 bucks, they are fun to do with a kid.
If I want to devil, I'll do it the old fashioned way in the middle of the night under cold water and a full moon.
