Culinary Expert’s Favorite Gadget: Microwave Egg Poacher (and Subscriber-Only Giveaway!)

Can you say crazy? Today I shot one live television segment and taped two more segments, all back-to-back. My mommy duties resume in 20 minutes at gymnastics class, so I need to keep this brief.

Yesterday's not-so-hungry breakfast: microwave-poached egg and raspberries.

Let’s talk eggs. You’ve probably seen my perfectly cooked, round, oozing morning “poached” eggs. 99% of the time they don’t even touch water. Nope. I cook them in my Trudeau Microwave Egg Poacher. Crack an egg into the device and pop it in the microwave for 45 – 60 seconds for one to two eggs. Et voila. Beautifully cooked eggs. The first time I mentioned this magical piece of gadgetry was during the SELF Eat Like Me blog-off.

Since then, more of you have taken notice and even begged me to give one away! Well, dreams do come true. At least, if you subscribe to my blog. Comment on this blog or on my Facebook page and tell me why you deserve to win the egg cooker. One lucky reader will be chosen. Entries must be submitted by midnight Pacific time on Friday, September 9, 2011. Not yet a subscriber? Visit my homepage where you can enter your email address, which will be kept safe and private. You may unsubscribe at any time if you choose. I promise I won’t stalk you.

Disclosure: Quite a few years ago a friend who works for Trudeau gave me my egg poacher. I was not compensated to include them in this post and. I am the sponsor for the prize.

    Hi Michelle, this is an amazing gadget and I did not know about it. I have been struggling to shed and maintain off 10 pounds for at least 9 years now. It has been frustrating to maintain my schedule while cooking healthy and staying active. Good luck to everyone! But I do hope I win so I can make myself healthy breakfasts every morning. This tool will be very useful. Thank you Michelle 🙂

    1. Good luck Rebeca. I find eggs to be very satisfying and love how quickly and easily I can prepare them in this.

    Eggs are pretty much my favorite food in the WORLD. I literally eat 3 I work in investment banking so leave my home around 6:30am everyday – egg poacher would make my morning sooo much more convenient!
