Original recipe yields 2 serving

Directions

  1. Bring a pot of water to a boil. Add eggs, and cook for 3 minutes. The yolks need to be runny. While the eggs cook, crush the crackers into two coffee mugs with the butter. When the eggs are done, remove from the water, and peel. Place one soft-boiled egg into each cup. Mix into the crackers, and season with salt and pepper.

I made this for my little brother and I last night when we were both starved. He took one bite and then snatched the cup out of my hands! Afterwards he asked "are you a chef? how do you make such good stuff?" :) It's very very good and super easy, not to mention filling! I only used four crackers in each of ours and it was plenty, although I used a teensy bit more butter. Super recipe!

This is a simple, delicious "comfort food." I used club crackers, and agree that 7 is way too many for one egg; next time, I'll try it with less. Also, like a previous reviewer, I used a poached egg, as it's far easier to just scoop right out of the water and plop onto your prepared crackers without the hassle of peeling the shell. I can see many ways this could be jazzed up...but for me, the flavours combine perfectly "as is." Thanks for a filling, yummy cup of comfort!

Mmm, I remember these from my childhood. I've also made them myself once or twice since I graduated college. I do a couple of things differently, which I'll submit here for others to experiment with if they please: One, I grease the sides of the cup with butter instead of mixing it with the other ingredients. Two, I layer the eggs with bread torn into small pieces instead of crackers. You can also add shredded cheese layers, breakfast meats, sauteed onions, etc. The possibilities are really endless.
