You can find all kinds of fun bento toys on Amazon. Here are my faves:

Kotobuki Egg Mold, Rabbit and Bear

SCI Cuisine International 2.75 Inch Square Egg Press

CUTEZCUTE 10-Piece Bento Decoration Box, Animals Food Picks and Forks

Happy Sales Stainless Steel Vegetable Cutters

CuteZCute Animal Friends Food Deco Cutter and Stamp Kit

Kotobuki Crayon Bento Box, Black Ninja

Sushi Grass Baran Garnish Short

If you enjoy this sort of thing, it's easy to get lost in Amazon's lists of related products.

Spend $30 on those tools and these lunches should take 10 mins to assemble in the morning. One of my biggest challenges is keeping a variety of foods on hand.

By the way, microwaving eggs works very well, if you use the right cookware. I use this type in hotels when I'm on the road.


u/SFLadyGaga · 49 pointsr/food

At least the input is liquid and the output is solid. My parents had this "Egg Cuber" in their kitchen gadget drawer when I was growing up. You put in a cooked hard boiled egg and you get a cube shaped hard boiled egg.

u/dirtbikr · 28 pointsr/funny

Link so you all can have this wonderful device

u/rharmelink · 22 pointsr/1200isplentyketo

I tend to make a lot of quick and easy microwave dishes:

  • Eggs made with this. Takes 2 minutes @ 80% power for 4 eggs (be sure to break the yolks). They slide right out.
  • Omelets
  • Frozen chicken wings (Foster Farm Hot & Spicy)
  • Frozen meatballs (Farm Rich Original). Great topped with Rao's Marinara and a shredded Italian blend cheese.
  • Spanish "rice"
  • Protein powder bread


  • Simple chili recipe using leftover meats.
  • Egg drop soup (onions, garlic, spices, chicken broth, drizzle in beaten eggs)
  • Veggie/meat/cheese "dump" soup


  • Sheet pan chicken. Any low carb veggies can go underneath. Save the runoff for soups. I do some version of this whenever I get 5 or 6 pounds of chicken pieces that were on sale.

    When I crave something sweet:

  • Breyer's Carb Smart Chocolate Ice Cream
  • Halo Top or Enlightened Ice Cream
  • Protein Powder mini-cakes
  • Jell-o Black Cherry Sugar Free Cups
  • Root Beer Float (diet A&W root beer and whipped cream or HWC)
u/legodarthvader · 19 pointsr/sousvide

So sorry guys! Posted and went to sleep.

62.8°C for 45 minutes. Eggs were 700g and were in room temperature. I made 4 at a go, 2 for me and 2 for SO. I'm guessing size and number of eggs will make a difference.

To be honest, I find that it's sometimes easier to make eggs like these using the old school way back when I was in Malaysia. Cooks up to 4 eggs at one time. All you do is put the eggs in and pour hot water in, let it drip slowly into the container below and you're done!

Edit: Forgot to mention that I also smoked these bad boys with a smoking gun. Works well. Other thoughts are maybe drizzle some pesto over instead of smoking it.

u/[deleted] · 16 pointsr/funny

they made more than one, I bought mine from amazon!

u/dcw242 · 16 pointsr/bodybuilding

If you're lazy, don't have the time to cook, don't have the space to prep, on a budget, or simply don't have access to a stove. Check out these cheap buys to make daily meal prepping much faster/easier. (Note: you can get stuff like this at Walmart and Target, too).

Posted this fish/meat/veggie steamer earlier this week in a DD

Completely worth buying. Shits changed my meal prep completely. Would highly recommend. Microwave two 4-5oz chicken breast filets in 5min flat. If you're afraid of bland chicken, buy a tray pack on the weekend, filet/butterfly them, throw them in a Ziploc bag with marinade. Then all you have to do is pull them out of the bag, throw them on the steamer, throw that bitch in the microwave for a bit, and done. It can also steam veggies and small potatoes.

This egg cooker

Hate boiling eggs because it takes too long? Gotta wait for the water to boil, then put the eggs in, then wait for them to boil, then cooldown. Etc etc. This is the shit for you. 6 Hardboiled eggs in minutes while microwaving your chicken/veggies. No cleanup required. Breakfast made in minutes.

Rice Cooker

Personally, I love rice, because I'm Asian. Also because it can be tasty as fuck. What I hate about rice, though, is how long it takes to cook in an electric cooker. I don't have 3hrs to wait for rice to cook, nor do I want my rice to sit in a cooker for 10-12hrs before I get to serve it (setting it in the morning, getting to it at night). But this shit here? Cooks in minutes. Fresh rice every day. Throw some salt and/or a little bit of butter (spray butter works for even distribution) for a bit of taste.

Meal prep should take less than 30min a night for 4-5 meals a day with minimal cleanup. Fresh food made every night. Simple enough that Helen Keller with a nub for an arm could've done it. You have no reason to have a fucked up diet now.

u/makesureimjewish · 12 pointsr/food
u/no-panacea · 11 pointsr/SexWorkersOnly

Intermittent fasting has worked pretty well for me as long as my diet has been super high-fat or full-blown keto. If it isn’t fat heavy then I just get too hungry/irritable too fast to maintain it.

If you eat out one meal a day and make it a steak or a fish entree with lots of butter and a low carb veg, then supplement with some preplanned snacks or meals the rest of the day, you could pull it off!

Most hotels will have a mini fridge and a microwave, right? Plus you can totally bring a can opener with you. So you can keep eggs, avocados, peanut butter, canned tuna (in oil rather than water), and some fresh low carb veggies on hand. You could potentially bring one of these on tour with you (it’s quite small), so you can make and eat hard boiled eggs with butter or oil. You can get MCT oil and coconut oil and full fat coconut milk to mix into your coffee - that’ll definitely help sustain you. You can use lettuce as cups/wraps to put canned tuna with lotsa mayo and avocado. I can also suggest a keto oatmeal recipe I’m obsessed with that you could pre-mix the dry ingredients for in sandwich baggies, pull out at your hotel to put in a bowl with coconut milk and peanut butter, then microwave. It’s sooo filling and keeps you full for so long - and tons of fibre.

I really think there’s plenty you can do with all these restrictions, you just have to put in a ton of work to research and plan, plan, plan.

u/AaronPDX · 10 pointsr/fffffffuuuuuuuuuuuud

I see your Egg McMuffin recipe and raise you this magical device:

My roommate and I call ours "The Egginator". Egg McMuffin while you brush your teeth. It even has a tray for heating up a sausage patty at the same time if that's what you're into (and I am).

u/bort_license_plates · 10 pointsr/Cooking

Only on Reddit will you see an OP continually downvoted when he responds to comments that aren't actually answering his question, but telling him he doesn't need what he's asking for.

Yes, we're all aware that you can poach eggs without a dedicated pan, but the question wasn't, "What's the best method for poaching eggs?"

If he wants to use a cheap poaching pan instead of a regular pot or pan, what do any of us care?

OP, I've had this pan for a couple of years and it works great.

Excelsteel 18/10 Stainless 4 Non Stick Egg Poacher

It's steel, not aluminum. It's stamped metal, nothing fancy and not an heirloom kinda thing. But for heating water and keeping eggs contained, it's fine. The eggs come out of the cups easily with a bit of Pam.

Moreover, it's quick, easy, and lets you think about other things.

u/custardsocks · 9 pointsr/pics

Get one of these, then it's nearly as quick as cereal :)

u/AFellowOfLimitedJest · 7 pointsr/tipofmytongue

I think they're just called 'egg rings', or _____ rings depending on how they're marketed. Examples:

u/devilsfoodadvocate · 6 pointsr/Cooking

I use these and they're very easy to deal with. You have to keep an eye on them just like you would when poaching without pods, but they keep it all from turning into egg flower soup if you're having a problem keeping the egg together while it's poaching.

u/jcbevns · 6 pointsr/whatisthisthing

Egg Ring. Fry egg surrounded by this, in a pan or on BBQ.

Edit: Found it

u/bitoku_no_ookami · 5 pointsr/MLPLounge

With one of these of course.

u/the_zero · 4 pointsr/ketorecipes

Aw, you can do it! Get a silicon egg mold like this

u/halpmeh_fit · 4 pointsr/zerocarb

Too bad - I guess a sous vide would be out on that basis. Others had great suggestions like doing a weekly meal prep at nearby grill (weather could be a constraint). University dorms or maybe a nearby park or housing complex could have something you could frequent. There may be decent ZC or at least low carb/keto options thru campus dining anyway.

Well I had a few other random thoughts as I considered how to best deal with your challenge.

  1. Store bought thinly sliced roast beef from the deli area? Should be able to find a good product if you look around and try to negotiate volume pricing. Likely to be fairly you'll need to consider that.
  2. Here's the keywords to find a microwave steamed egg (korean style) recipe you may like, I used to eat it growing up:, japanese chawanmushi is somewhat similar and gives you more options to pick ZC friendly seasoning. Invest in a good quality fish sauce (ingredients = anchovies) or bonito dashi powder I'd suggest if you want to put something like this in your rotation.
  3. Of course there are lots of gadgets to help make your microwave more functional, especially for egg cooking but also bacon, assuming you tolerate it (although can be pricy, pork belly at an asian market is often cheaper).
  4. You could pick up one of these or probably devise your own. Easy enough to boil water in the microwave, just be careful to take precautions against superheating it.
  5. It's a bit of a meme these years, but there are probably some good online microwave cooking guides around that may be helpful.
  6. I guess old school microwave browning equipment is similar to those disposable heating sleeves for hot pockets and microwave pizza. I did a quick search on Amazon and you can find such products, although they seem a bit pricy.
  7. Organ meat probably doesn't turn out well in any microwave - canned cod livers are good though.
  8. Canned sardines are fairly inexpensive and can help cover you on the omega3s front.
  9. I don't think jerky is a reasonable long term option, but you can do some research online. There's a pdf describing how to do it with a lightbulb and a box, although I'm not too confident in the food safety of that.

    Good luck! I don't think the economic aspect will be the issue here.
u/Pork_Rind_Overdose · 3 pointsr/keto

Honestly, if you have the time to eat a bowl of cereal, you have the time to make a few eggs in the microwave. Those microwaveable egg cookers work really well, and they are done in less than two minutes. Might wanna try it someday and see just how it works.

u/Vauce · 3 pointsr/fffffffuuuuuuuuuuuud

You can just use one of these and do it in 1 minute in the microwave, although you won't get the cool flowery look. Do they taste different boiled compared to microwaved?

Nordic Ware 64702 Microwave 2 Cavity Egg Poacher

u/princessleah7x · 3 pointsr/Rabbits

As per my Rabbit vet and the rescue organization I got my second rabbit from, I feed my rabbit hay and also unlimited pellets. I was giving pellets 2x a day and unlimited hay, but the woman at the rescue organization said she keeps her rabbits on unlimited pellets (along with unlimited hay, as every thing you will read pretty much agrees on).

I was using care fresh but I found it still smelled bad and was difficult to clean the litter box. I spoke to the vet about this when I took my male in to get desexed and she suggested using this [cat litter](Feline Pine Original Cat Litter, 20-Pound Bag with hay on top as you mentioned. I was using corner litter boxes prior, but when I got a bigger living space for the buns I changed to a cat litter sized tray like [this](Rubbermaid #2951-AR BISQUE 11.4 QT Bisque Dish Pan I'm 10x happier with Feline Pine than any other bedding/litter stuff marketed for rabbits.

I also saw you keep the rabbit free range. How have you bunny proofed the room(s) he has access to? Has the rabbit been desexed yet? What kind of things are you providing for him to eat and drink? Do you have a water bottle or a water bowl?

u/RustedMagic · 3 pointsr/AskReddit

u/sandra_nz · 3 pointsr/ketorecipes

What an awesome friend!

Whilst we're talking about poaching, I'm a fan of of Poachpods - they can also be used in the microwave although you need to prick the egg right through to the yolk first.

u/twistedraisin · 3 pointsr/AskCulinary

My sister had the same problem. My suggestion to her (and you) is just to cheat

ETA: fixed link

u/HardwareLust · 3 pointsr/food

If you want to cheat, these work perfectly every single time, without fail:

u/olstargazer · 3 pointsr/whatisthisthing

The piece with the ball on top should fold 90 degrees upward. Like this:


u/Jumala · 3 pointsr/KitchenConfidential

I assume you're the first person in the kitchen, so you should clean and season the grill before you use it. Whoever was using it the night before should have cleaned it, but you can't season the grill the night before at closing, so it's not really their fault it's not seasoned.

And like people said above temperature is key, but what the dial reads will depend on your grill. Some people keep one side a little lower for home fries. When I worked on a grill I had home fries on one side, then a space for pancakes and then the eggs on the hottest side, but not so hot that they would bubble up.

One place I worked had rings for the eggs and they worked OK for keeping the eggs from spreading out too much. They come in different sizes.

u/pencilears · 3 pointsr/WTF

well, it's a good thing you're living in the future

u/ivebeenhereallsummer · 3 pointsr/shittyfoodporn

I found a couple of egg cubers in the thrift shop

u/renational · 3 pointsr/foodhacks

it occurs to me a silicon egg ring may form a better water seal.
interesting idea i will try when i sear inside my pressure cooker.
it suffers from a hot spot in the center, so i can use oil along
the edge and keep the water circle for steam in the middle.
will let you know if it helped in a day or two.

u/notmewasthedog · 3 pointsr/Cheap_Meals

Maybe just microwave them? I'm assuming your going to have to heat them up again in the microwave to defrost, just crack a raw egg in a plastic/glass bowl sprayed with pam.

or get something like this :

u/Manse_ · 3 pointsr/Cooking

I warn you: Everything below is going to sound complex, but they're really not. Everything is light on ingredients, but heavy on "holy crap, YOU made THIS?"

  • Breakfast: Nothing will impress more than Eggs Benedict. Kenji at Serious Eats has a pretty solid write up that was covered by Babish as well. I will say that you want to do a practice run on the poached eggs, or find a way to cheat with an egg cooker. I've an order of those silicone poaching molds that arrive today, so I'll be trying them out tomorrow morning on my own before the big show Sunday.

    The next two are probably interchangeable for lunch/dinner, however they assume you have a grill (and a thermometer. do NOT cook pork tenderloin to 160F or I will find you. Medium rare (135F, maybe 140F) pork tenderloin is melt-in-your-mouth tender.

  • I highly recommend this Grilled Chicken Cordon Bleu recipe for just about any summer event. It's amazingly easy and delicious. Buy extra lemons and toss the halves on the grill, because people are going to want to squeeze them over the chicken and lick the plates.

  • The other option is a grilled pork tenderloin sandwich. Make a garlic aioli and some pickled red onions ahead of time, as well as marinate your tenderloin. Here's a pretty solid choice from Alton brown. Bring it all over, toss the tenderloin on the grill as instructed, let it rest a few minutes, then slice about a half inch thick. Serve on a nice bun with your pickled onions, some baby spinach (or arugula/rocket from the cordon bleu), and your garlic aioli.

    Also, make extra of the pickled onions and just leave them out on the table. Trust me, they'll disappear like candy.
u/snail_pail · 2 pointsr/fatlogic

One quick & easy breakfast that I like, prep time less than 3 minutes:
Get one of these: or ask the Internet "how to poach an egg in the microwave" for a free method.
Poach 2 eggs (1min 37 seconds in my micro, yours may vary slightly) then heat up 1/3 cup of salsa (a good, chunky one, no sugar or similar crap added) for about 30 seconds and then dump eggs in salsa . Experience deliciousness. ~180 calories.

Another fast option is make oatmeal on the weekend (I like adding a little cocoa powder so it's like a lumpy, healthy chocolate pudding). You can freeze it in 1-cup measurements in tupperware, then remove from tupperware once frozen and store your "oatmeal bricks" in a large freezer bag (that way you can make a huge batch and don't need to worry about it getting moldy if you decide to do eggs & salsa instead for a few days in a row). Punch all the ingredients into MFP and the # of servings you end up with, and it will tell you the per-serving calorie count. In the morning, grab a "brick" and microwave it for about 3 min. Yum!

I do a similar thing with stew, I have a freezer full of delicious "stew bricks" for when I'm in a rush or it's just a cold day and I want something heathy and warming.

u/smushy_face · 2 pointsr/EatCheapAndHealthy

For breakfast, get a microwave egg cooker like this one or this one if you want more than two, and then buy the following at Costco: eggs, cheese slices, microwaveable bacon, and English muffins. Toast muffin(s), nuke bacon 45 - 60 seconds depending on your microwave, and nuke eggs for 50 or so seconds. Layer together with cheese. Voila! Delicious breakfast sandwich in under 5 minutes.

Edit to say: For convenience type items, I really like their microwaveable quiches. They're a four pack of a couple different kinds and they turn out pretty well in the microwave.

u/carpecaffeum · 2 pointsr/loseit

Just get a big box of the quaker oats rolled oatmeal, add water or skim milk and toss it in the microwave for 2 minutes.

And I highly recommend something like this:

Pop it in the microwave microwave for a minute, bam, you have cooked eggs. I use mine all the time. Use a little nonstick spray before cooking and you can wash it out in about 30 seconds.

Chicken salad is a solid lunch. I often also just make a double portion of something healthy for dinner and use it the next day for lunch as well.

u/PhotogenicMemory · 2 pointsr/keto

If you wanna change things up with the "scrambled" eggs, might I suggest a microwave egg poacher? Bought this on a friend's recommendation at Wegmans for about $3 - it rocks. 1 minute for 2 eggs (semi-soft). :D

Also, upboats for 24 hour clock usage. And damn, full until 18:00, that's impressive!

u/longlive_yossarian · 2 pointsr/EatCheapAndHealthy

I cook a pack of bacon or sausage on Sunday and it eat throughout the week with some microwave poached eggs. They're way better than they sound and only take 1 minute to cook. I use one of [these] ( gimmicky things, but it works very well. You should be able to use something like a coffee mug too.

u/Baeker · 2 pointsr/tall

I use a dish pan and put it on top my cutting board with a towel in between. Raises it up high enough so I don't really have to bend much.

Like this:

u/kfktr · 2 pointsr/Fitness

I wouldn't recommend having more than one meal repeat every day, since you can be missing lots of necessary nutrients. Try different types of fruit instead of just bananas. Apples, oranges, kiwis, strawberries, plums and all that just to keep it fresh.

Eggs are also super easy to make every now and then, especially with a microwavable poacher. Pop in the toast, microwave the eggs, and then you have delicious eggs on toast.

u/ThePantsParty · 2 pointsr/Fitness

Even easier yet: a microwave egg poacher. Crack a couple eggs, stab them with a fork, microwave for 1 minute, add whatever toppings you want, and you're good to go. I use this thing all the time, and it really is amazing.

u/snashkille · 2 pointsr/mildlyinteresting

Thats nothing compared to this.

u/reddilada · 2 pointsr/AskReddit

Another 10 bucks and you can get one that cooks an egg too

u/I_Read_an_article · 2 pointsr/pics

And it's at a fair price of only $34.00

u/BernzSed · 2 pointsr/funny

It's pretty good, considering the price and free shipping.

It's great for hard-boiled eggs (up to four at a time), although every once in a while one of them explodes and makes a mess. This used to happen to me all the time before I stopped buying extra-large eggs.

Also, wipe down the water-heating thing when it cools. Once egg residue gets cooked on, it's hard to clean. (The rest of the pieces can just go in the dishwasher.)

Another minor gripe is that if you cook eggs and toast at the same time, the toast doesn't pop up until the egg is finished, and by then the toast has cooled. Still, just a minor inconvenience.

Oh, and watch your fingers when pulling off the egg-cooking cover. No, seriously, steam is hot. I usually push down on the plastic handle for a few seconds to let some steam out the other side before pulling it up. And don't cook eggs underneath any wooden furniture; steam rises.

Altogether, I like it. It cooks toast. And it also cooks eggs. Simple enough.

u/nunz · 2 pointsr/pics

I cook on Saturday and Sunday, put it into storage containers, and eat through the week.

For breakfast, I have a bowl of Special K or I fire up this --> and make a breakfast sandwich.

Do you have a recipe for that? It looks dank! 10/10!

u/EmpathyJelly · 2 pointsr/fitmeals

I got away from grains entirely in the morning by making 2 poached eggs in a microwave poacher and 1 sliced of microwave-cooked bacon both of which I cook in my office kitchen. I throw in a piece of fruit for my morning sweet tooth. I am really happy with this and it keeps me satisfied until lunch

u/Cforq · 2 pointsr/GifRecipes

So many people say to stir it and that has always ended up as eggwater for me. I find vinegar, sliding it in from a shallow bowl, and using a slotted spoon to keep it together to be the best tactic.

But if you don’t want to practice you can always cheat.

u/IxNaruto · 2 pointsr/sousvide

idk If I can post this here but legit I am super into sous-vide and I did the egg thing as well but for the effort it didn't seem worth in my opinion from a quick breakfast pov bringing it to temp etc. etc. based on my mornings

Anyone interested should look into this

Fucking fire it works perfectly I am obsessed with how easy and quick this is. bring the water to a boil.

and then just put them in and close the lid. 5 minutes no more no less for me and its always perfect always easy.

Not an ad or anything but it just seems more practical for me versus starting the sous vide and trying to find that perfect temp and then waiting for it to heat up etc etc.

Edit: I put the mold on the trivet with a cup of water underneath. Put some foil on top...doesn't need to be tight on top of the mold. Just to cover it a little

u/binderclips · 1 pointr/ketorecipes

Wow that's gonna be hard. You can go waay 90s, and use microwave egg poachers/bacon racks/griddle/steamer. We had one of those egg poacher things when I was a kid and it worked fine for a long time. I wouldn't expect any of those things to last forever, but they're cheap and should last you at least a couple years.

With those, obviously you could make bacon & eggs. You could also steam cauliflower for cauli mash?

Man, that sucks. Never had stitching ripped before. I'd go with two options.

Handwash them in the tub or buy a wash bucket and clean it in that. Something like this. Bleach free of course.

Otherwise, you could also use the laundry bags. I use these to wash my covers on gentle cycle.

u/icantbebotheredd · 1 pointr/leangains

Breakfast salad: if you can boil water you can make this. Takes about 1 minute of actual work.

You'll need: 2 eggs, handful of your favorite greens, 1 slice of bread, Poach Pods ($9 for two on Amazon), salt and pepper to season

  • boil some water. no need for salt. just water in a saucepan on a burner.
  • once water is boiling (10 min ish) put your bread in the toaster
  • take out your super useful poach pods, put a teeny bit of oil in them so the eggs don't stick, add in the eggs and season with salt & pepper & whatever else (if you don't have poach pods, you can poach eggs. Much more time consuming and difficult though :( )
  • put them in the boiling water and cover with lid, wait about 3 min.
  • your toast should be done around now. Put it on a plate and grab that handful of spinach/kale/spring mix etc and put it on top so it covers the bread
  • Once your eggs are done (about 3 minutes) drop them on top of the greens and immediately mix the yolk as if it were salad dressing. It's easiest if you do one egg at a time, and just keep tossing the salad so the yolk doesn't harden.
  • EAT that shit.

Technically, what you get isn't poached eggs. For me, it's close enough.

Forget all the nonsense of vinegar and chasing the eggs with a spoon.

Get a set of poach pods and you'll have perfectly poached eggs every time.

The way we've done it in the past is that we crack the egg into a ladle, I give the vinagar'd water a good spin (but not hard enough to make the water dimple more than about an inch down), and then we dump the egg into the vortex. The 'shreds' of egg that spin off wrap around the egg, and then as the spinning slows we fish it out.

There's also these cool little silicone egg poaching cups that you float.

Apparently egg molds are a thing. Check out the "frequently bought together" section of this page.

I buy stupid, stupid things on the internet. Which is why I own an egg cuber, an assortment of wigs, and some Gameboy Color games for the Gameboy I don't have.

I love freaking people out with square deviled eggs! I tell 'em they came from square chickens!!

I finally gave up trying freehand. Yes, this thing is useless for anything else, yes it takes up space, yes I probably paid too much for this single-use kitchen thing, but perfect eggs benny for daaaays...

I haven't tried it personally, but a quick google search shows a number of attempts by other people. (e.g. here's a post titled "Baked Eggs in a Muffin Tin".) I'm more familiar with cooking eggs in either individual ramekins that you place in a pot of simmering water and cover with a lid, or with an "egg poacher" (like this) rather than using a muffin tray and baking them though. Jacques Pepin has a number of examples of cooking eggs in ramekins (oeufs en cocotte, in French), which you might find interesting. Here's a short clip demonstrating it, and there's a longer segment about the same dish including more details about sauces, garnishes, and variants in Essential Pepin: Egg-ceptional if you like the idea.

If you want another eggy option, I steam poach eggs at home, chill them in ice water, then warm them up in a water bath at work.

I have some of these that are made from silicone, so they're flexible and egg doesn't leak out of the bottom.

Go Ben!

I think you should get the blue ukulele because it is blue, has a dolphin bridge, and would just be cool. I have always wanted to learn to play the ukulele...

Either that or buy this because breakfast is by far the best meal of the day and I have heard the most important! Plus then you could save the rest for something big!

These things are the best, eggs are so much better.
Best for egg whites.

u/Woknblues · 1 pointr/ketorecipes

Low moisture mozzarella is $2-3/lb where I live. That and eggs. Get an egg-tastic and you are all set. I use mine at work.

u/PM_ME_UR_KNITS · 1 pointr/xxketo

I only found out about it because I was researching the Eggtastic. I liked the look of the one I bought much more than the Eggtastic -- it didn't look as kitschy, to be honest.

I'll get a picture in, tomorrow! It's going to be turkey links though, and not patties. Boo-licious.

Had a different version but same idea, they work.

u/cdelia191 · 1 pointr/Cooking

If you’re really still struggling you should just Use some of these egg poaching cups or the egg poaching tray.

Usually I just make soft boiled eggs tho.

u/cloverlief · 1 pointr/instantpot

Replacement silicone rings, they work well but absorb and pass on strong smells.
1 for broth, 1 for Japanese or Thai Curry, 1 fir steaming, etc.

Another very useful item are these silicin moulds. Silicone Egg Bites Molds for Instant Pot Accessories - Fits Instant Pot 5,6,8 qt Pressure Cooker, Reusable Storage Container, Baby Food Container and Freezer Tray with Lid (Blue)

Beyond that steamer baskets and the glass lid. I also keep a 2nd pot, so I can make something while the other is washed.

u/zebby_brain · 1 pointr/Cooking

We just call it the yellow half boiled egg maker, and it’s used in traditional coffee shops here. Found a listing on Amazon.

The description says: “This Perfect Half-Boiled Egg Cooker is extremely easy to use. Simply add up-to 4 eggs to the container and pour boiling water inside. Then wait until the water drops to the container at the bottom and your perfect half boiled eggs are done!”

In my country it costs only $3.

Or you can:

  • Put two slices of whole grain bread in the toaster
  • Crack two eggs into this and pop it in the microwave for one minute
  • Slice two slices of sharp cheddar (1 oz ea)
  • Grab a handful of baby carrots
  • Add cheese slices, and egg to top of toast
  • Top each egg& cheese toast with, salt, pepper, Tapatio
  • Wash & rinse knife & egg cooker

    700 calories of delicious and nutritious breakfast that I can eat in the car on the way to work.

    Time: 5 min (I've got it down to ~4 min, actually), which is less time than I was spending in the drive-thru every morning getting a pair of sausage mcmuffins and hashbrowns.

    Cost: $1.25

    The "time to cook" excuse is bullshit we tell ourselves because we'd rather spend equal or more time waiting for someone else to make us food that's tastier but not as healthy for us - and almost always more expensive.

    Let alone the time savings if you pre-cook a large batch of meals each week or two. Sure, you'll have less variety, but the food can still be delicious, nutritious, and more affordable.

Yes, RL is a food company. A food company I have relied on for almost a year for 80-90% of my caloric intake. A food company I have thoroughly evangelized with friends, co-workers and users on this very subreddit.

Nine months of that year have been on a subscription where orders were placed, paid for, shipped and delivered in 4-7 days. Now going into the eighth day and my order has been placed and PAID FOR but I can't get a straight answer about when it might even begin to ship.

Believe me when I tell you I would not be raising any sort of hell if I was waiting on Amazon to deliver my Egg-Tastic!
