Picture of life changing egg trick
I learnt about this at my local cafe. A magical way to cook your eggs. Drop em in the espresso maker's steamer !

Step 1: Pick a number of eggs...

I finally tried this out today - it works great. My machine had just enough steam for two eggs. Salt and pepper today - I'll add some garlic next time. Oil isn't required, just makes clean up easier. I'd suggest steaming some water after eating and wiping off the egg after. Just what I needed after a little too much wine last night!

well, there kind of is oil(the one where you oil the steamer in step 3).

Nice! I dont have a steamer like this, but i have been microwaving eggs for some time now. scramble and microwave, they puff up when theyre done. . Maybe i can have my girlfriend do this, she works in a coffee shop, and shes the onlly one there ever, so nobody would know... it wouldnt be the first "secret" thing that happened there.
Quagmire would be proud , Giggity, giggity, giggity, giggity!

Hm, maybe i missed something, but it's kinda messy for me. the center of the cupful of eggs solidifies, then it starts being forced upward by the steam being shot down under it, while raw egg goes shooting all over the place... Am i doing something wrong by sticking the steam head into the eggs? Should i not beat them, because i did. Also, anyone else have any spice suggestions? I <3 eggs. Awesome instructable dude. 5.

This is wicked brilliant. Tried, love it. I threw in a little garlic, dill weed and cracked pepper: best breakfast in weeks.

I've long been amazed at how eggs taste with different methods of cooking: soft vs. hard boiled, over easy vs. basted, poached vs. microwaved, scrambled vs. fryed. I'm no chemist so cannot explain the many interatciotn that occur during the various cooking processes. Never steamed them but now I'll try. Thanks!

They do this at the Medici restaurant on 57th St in Hyde Park (Chicago). Delicious! Thanks for posting!

I tried this out at the cafe I work at a few months ago. What so amazing is how quickly they cook, much quicker than a micro. I cranked the steam up, and they went from mixed eggs to scrambled in seconds, POOF! I "broke" my yokes first and added a bit, tiny bit of cream. Nice Instructable -
That's really neat!
