*** Don't miss my giveaway to win one here on my blog ! ***
How do you like your eggs in the morning? Soft-boiled with soldiers like your mum used to make? Sunny side up or over easy, if you're a fan of American series? Scrambled with smoked salmon if you're feeling posh? Fertilised, if you like corny pick up lines?! The options are mutiple but I bet you've never had a heart shaped boiled egg before !
With Valentine's Day on the horizon, I immediately loved the idea behind the Eggspress Boiled Egg Mould.
It's simple to use - you hard boil your egg, peel it, put it in the mould, place it in cold water (or the fridge) and a few minutes later .... suspense ! ... yes, you really do get a cute heart-shaped egg, much to the kids' delight ! Oh OK, I might have cheered a little bit too !
I'd never heard of boiled egg moulds before but they appear to be hugely popular in Japan. This youtube video shows you how well it works, even if it's not for the Eggspress mould in particular.
The only bad thing is, you can only do one egg at a time so if you have a big family, you'll need to buy several (or spend all afternoon in the kitchen doing one at a time )- because everyone will want a heart-shaped egg and sulk if they get a normal egg, however old they are, believe me ! Luckily, they only cost £5 so it won't break the bank to buy several.
If you want a real wow-inducing breakfast in bed or romantic salad for Valentine's Day, it's brilliant.
Don't go away - I'll be back in a second with a giveaway so you can win one.
