Eggs In A Glass

Eggs In A Glass

This is  THE  breakfast classic of Viennese coffeehouses, where it has been served for many generations. Usually, it is being served in a stemmed champagne cup, which originally invited the immature nonsense of comparing its appearance with the male anatomy.
Although the two eggs with the long stem of the glass can invoke sexual imagery, it is the egg lover who loves this simple dish most, for the ease it provides to eat soft boiled eggs, without the trouble of peeling them or chopping the top off with a butter knife. 🙂
However, my love for this dish leads all the way back to my childhood, when my mother served the soft eggs in regular glasses for all the family, sprinkled with fresh ground black pepper,  a pinch of salt and a dollop of fresh butter, with some hearty farmers bread to soak up the yolk from the bottom of our glasses. To this day, nothing has dimmed my love for eggs in a glass, except that the 2 eggs my mom used to serve me have nowadays grown into five or six eggs. 🙂
