We used the Hamilton Beach Egg Cooker to perfectly poach the eggs. The Egg Cooker also prepares soft, medium or hard-boiled eggs. Watch the video below to see the egg cooker in action.
Along with making smoothies to go, the SingleServe Blender is perfect for mixing sauces or dressings. The Hollandaise sauce in this recipe can be drizzled over the eggs right from the jar.
