When we have dippy eggs I cool hers quick in some water, peel in then put in the egg cup so she doesn;t eat the shell. She loves them and they are such a cheap [ours our 10p per egg frtom local farm) source of nutrition.
Dippy egg was massive success! He loved dipping in his toasty fingers! Egg cup is still in one piece! We have no heirloom eggcups as DH and I both hate soft boiled eggs. DS has one that he got as a present. The egg cup bit is being hugged by a rabbit, so it is a bit more stable.
Magic - one for the fairly short list of quick easy teas.
