My kids love interactive food. For breakfast, we do soft boiled eggs with toast for dipping. I have been collecting egg cups for years during our trips to Europe (they are small and easy to pack). A few of my favorites are from Austria, France and Spain. My kids love choosing their own in the mornings.

Poaching eggs is daunting, even for someone who went to culinary school. I only use Poach Pods when I need to poach eggs. They're super easy to use and clean. You can also get a Poach Pod lifter that will help make poaching even simpler.

For even better scrambled eggs I try to salt beaten eggs and let them sit for 5 to 10 minutes before cooking. This extra seasoning step makes a difference and your eggs will be all the more tasty.

For my family I do sunny-side up eggs all in one pan (like 10 in a giant nonstick). I just crack them all in, cover with a sheet pan (a hack if you don't have a lid big enough) over medium-low heat until whites are cooked. I serve them in the skillet and everyone grabs their own. Sometimes I add a jar of marinara for the eggs to cook in and cover with Parmesan (like a poor man’s shakshuka).

A good trick for making egg salad is to push the boiled eggs through a wire mesh cooling rack to cut them quickly all at once.

A culinary instructor taught me to drop eggs in the pan clockwise when poaching (starting at 12 o'clock), so you don't have to think about what order they went in, and therefore, what order they should be taken out. I use it any time I add several items to a wide pan to ensure even cooking.
