Prettiest vintage style egg cups and giveaway

We’re split in our house over eggs. The OH isn’t a fan unless they’re fried (due to having kept chickens in barns years ago on the farm), but N and I are big fans and would eat them in any format as often as possible.  I love my egg boiler which makes 7 eggs at a time so perfect for preparing soft boiled in one go if we’ve friends to stay.

We’re a bit slapdash how we serve our boiled eggs.  N and I designed our own egg cups a while back, but they’re nothing like have pretty egg cups.  Like these pale blue ones we were sent.

I do love vintage style items (could spend all day looking in shops at them), and these sweet egg cups fit in really well in our farmhouse kitchen.  Not only that but pale turquoise, they match our Aga.

The Eddingtons egg cups come in a pack of 4 with a rustic feel to the packaging. They’re a lovely pail design with each having the image of different types of chicken.  Something a bit different – I’ve never seen egg cups like these before.  And they’d be perfect for a gift – for anyone who loves chickens, or countryside lovers.  If you’ve got fussy children, they can each have their own chicken egg cup – it might avoid them fighting over whose is whose (anyone else have children who fight over silly things like that? My brother and I were terrible when we were children!)

These are great for spring time too, with that lovely spring or summer colour. We might have missed using them for mother’s day breakfast in bed, but they’re a great option with Easter coming up. Use them for hiding crème eggs amongst real eggs in an easter hunt round the house if it’s wet.

As they’re metal they’re hand wash only. But they’re certainly egg cups I’d be proud to put on the table for brunch if friends are over. But I think these will last well over the years.

I have so many friends who would love these, I think I’m going to have to buy a few packs myself.  You can buy the egg buckets from Prezzybox  (they have cream ones with ‘Eggs’ written on them as an alternative option).

But, I’ve been given a pack to giveaway to one lucky reader. If you’d like to win some of your own, enter by answering the question ‘What’s your favourite recipe using eggs?’

  1. It has to be an omelette for me because they are quick and easy to make and you can add anything you like!

  2. I eat eggs for breakfast most days but my favourite recipe using them (for meringue) would have to be Eton Mess, especially with summer (hopefully) not too far away!

  3. I have dippy eggs and soldiers every morning, makes me feel like a kid again x

  4. It would have to be pavlova as I have a bit of a thing about pudding but I also enjoy the challenge of making a cheese souffle.

  5. scrambled egg with smoked salmon, or chocolate mousse, or cheese soufflé depending on my mood

  6. favourite recipe using eggs is lemon cake, scrambled eggs are nice too though

  7. I like boiled eggs and soldiers, or a pastry free quiche ( cooked in baking paper in a muffin tray)

  8. At first, I thought of a full English breakfast, but to be honest it has to be Tuna Salad Nicoise, I love it, so simple , yet so healthy and tasty.

  9. I love a cheese, ham, mushroom and spring onion omelette. I’m getting hungry just thinking about it..

  10. I love poached eggs although i’m not too good at making them as the white always seems to separate from the yolk!

  11. Love a good spanish frittata with paprika, but my daughter of course will only have them boiled and slightly runny (has to be perfect,) with dippy soldiers.

  12. I actually used to get really sick whenever I ate eggs, but recently ive weaned myself onto them and I cant get enough of scrambled eggs or dippy eggs!

  13. Has anyone said cake? Did I misread the question? Cake is the BEST recipe using eggs! A particular favourite of mine is banana loaf, using over ripe bananas, yum yum!

  14. fried eggs, but if i won i would give these to my step mom as i accidently threw her old ones out !!!x

  15. I loved poached egg, cooked tomatoes, smoked salmon and spinach. Yum! Full of protein so really filling too.

  16. I adore eggs, nothing beats a simple poached egg on toast on a Sunday morning.

  17. Egg and soldiers reminds me of when I was a child and my dad used to do it for me

  18. Has to be dippy soft boiled eggs and toasted soldiers! (These lovely eggcups would be just perfect for that)

  19. We are lucky enough to have our own hens ,so fresh eggs everyday. We love to make Spanish omelettes and quiches

  20. I love omlettes and egg fried rice but I can never get it to taste the same as in a restaurant

  21. oooh has to be scrambled egg, although I am quite partial to a boiled egg and soldiers x

  22. scrambled egg, occasionally I make an onion, garlic and chilli base and curry powder with chunky buttered bread

  23. Fried egg sandwiches are my guilty comfort food, but my favourite is homemade goats cheese and red onion quiche.

  24. For me it would be either chocolate cake or for something more “eggy” then scrambled egg with smoked salmon.

  25. Tortillas – so versatile hot / cold and using up anything left in my fridge

  26. Has to be my Mum’s egg & Cheese pie she won’t tell me the secret ingredient!
