With the Hamilton Beach® Egg Cooker, you won’t have to worry about over or under cooking your eggs ever again. This little appliance (seriously, it takes up very little room) eliminates the guesswork and perfectly cooks eggs each and every time.

Whether you want soft, medium, hard, or even poached eggs – the work is done for you. All you have to do is read the side of the measuring cup (that comes with the egg cooker) and fill to the marked line with cold water. The designated fill-line will vary depending on your desired consistency and the number of eggs you are cooking.

Pour the water into the reservoir then cover with the lid and press the ON switch. The appliance will sound when the eggs are cooked and all the water has evaporated. It’s just that easy.

This little appliance gets a workout in my kitchen year-round, but I find it especially useful in the springtime. With Easter approaching, this egg cooker makes easy work out of whipping together your famous deviled eggs, egg salad, or salad nicoise.

If you’re not planning an Easter feast, the Egg Cooker is a great tool for meal prep any time of year. I hard boil 6 eggs over the weekend and store them in the refrigerator to throw into salads, peel for a quick protein-packed snack or for a no-brainer breakfast during the week. Now that the Egg Cooker has erased the hassle from boiling eggs, you’ll find excuses to use it over and over again.

The Egg Cooker can also help you make perfectly poached eggs, too. Watch the video to see this amazing little egg cooker in action.

Shakshuka is a popular dish in the Middle East and North Africa. It consists of poached eggs in a spicy tomato sauce usually served with bread for dipping. Overseas it’s enjoyed for breakfast, but it could definitely make for a delicious breakfast-for-dinner option. Who doesn’t love breakfast for dinner?

Sheet Pan Shakshuka

We cooked this sheet pan shakshuka in the Hamilton Beach Easy Reach Toaster Oven. The toaster oven version makes a lovely breakfast for two, but feel free to make it in the oven on a standard baking sheet if you’re feeding the family.

Sheet Pan Shakshuka

In a large skillet over medium-high, heat oil and add onion and one large Anaheim chile pepper. Cook until tender then stir in garlic, cumin, salt, paprika, and black pepper. Then add tomatoes and Hatch chiles and cook until the mixture reduces and thickens.

Sheet Pan Shakshuka

Transfer the mixture to the baking sheet and make four wells (we used a spoon) for the eggs. Carefully crack the eggs into the wells and bake for about 10 minutes at 375 degrees – until the eggs are just set. You’ll want a runny yolk so it can mix with the spicy tomato sauce.

Sheet Pan Shakshuka

We topped our shakshuka with feta cheese and a sprinkle of parsley. And be sure to serve it with plenty of warm naan for dipping – you won’t want to leave a bit of this dish behind.

During the week, my go-to breakfast is a classic egg and cheese breakfast sandwich. It’s quick (under 5 minutes), thanks to the Breakfast Sandwich Maker. While the Breakfast Sandwich Maker never disappoints, sometimes I crave a little something sweet in the morning. That’s when the breakfast decisions get really difficult. “Do I want pancakes? What about big Belgian waffles? There’s always fluffy French toast. Hmmmm.”

French Toast Waffles

The Test Kitchen blew my mind when they told me I didn’t necessarily have to choose. I could merge two sweet breakfast sensations into one best-of-both-worlds recipe – French Toast Waffles.

French Toast Waffles

The recipe reads like you’re making classic French Toast but instead of cooking it on the stovetop, break out your waffle maker. In a bowl, whisk together eggs, milk, sugar, cinnamon and salt. Dip slices of bread into the mixture and coat on both sides. Place the dipped bread on the waffle plate and bake for 6 to 8 minutes – depending upon how crispy you like your waffles.

French Toast Waffles

We topped these French toast waffles with a big pat of butter and a generous drizzle of maple syrup, but you could definitely add fresh berries or whipped cream (or both – yum). Whether you are serving them for a mid-week treat or at Mother’s Day brunch, French toast waffles are a breakfast food merger you’ve been waiting for.

The Breakfast Sandwich Maker’s claim to fame is putting breakfast on the table in 5 mins or less. But what about lunch and dinner? Think past the english muffin and use this versatile appliance to make more than just your favourite breakfast sandwich.

Breakfast Sandwich Maker Taco Cups

Breakfast Sandwich Maker Taco Cups

For these taco cups, we swapped our english muffin for a tortilla. Preheat the Breakfast Sandwich Maker then lift the cover and slide out the cooking plate (the top and bottom ring will stack). You won’t need to use the middle cooking plate for these scrumptious cups.

Spray the bottom cooking plate with cooking spray then place the tortilla into the rings. It will form into a bowl shape with the help of the rings. If you want to make the cups ahead of time, use a muffin tin to mold the tortillas then transfer them to the Breakfast Sandwich Maker. Next, add taco filling and top it with your favorite cheese. We used leftover ground beef from our last taco night and sharp cheddar cheese but you could use slow cooker salsa chicken or even carnitas.

Breakfast Sandwich Maker Taco Cups

Close the cover then cook for 5 to 6 minutes until the tortilla is nice and crispy. Remove the taco cup from the Breakfast Sandwich Maker and load it up with your favourite toppings. Guacamole, sour cream, tomatoes, corn, black beans, salsa, hot sauce – the more the merrier.

Breakfast Sandwich Maker Taco Cups

These taco cups work as a gameday appetizer, after-school snack, or new addition to your Taco Tuesday menu. They’re a great way to use up the leftovers in your fridge and will surely convince you that the Breakfast Sandwich Maker can help in the kitchen morning, noon, & night.

The holiday season is a great time for your Hamilton Beach® roaster oven to reach it’s maximum potential. While the roaster oven cooks a mean Holiday turkey, that’s not all it can do. From baking a cheesecake to making a vat of chili, the roaster oven really can do it all.

Overnight Breakfast Strata

This overnight breakfast strata is the perfect recipe for feeding an army – or in this case the relatives or out-of-town friends who are crashing at your home this holiday season.

You can prep it the night before and have ready to cook in the morning. A little planning goes a long way, especially during the holidays when things are busy, busy, busy.

Overnight Breakfast Strata

The night before, remove the roaster oven baking pan from the base and spray with non-stick cooking spray. Then layer croutons, ham, cheese, spinach, and red peppers in the pan. Feel free to leave the ham out if you prefer a vegetarian strata. You can also substitute cooked bacon or sausage (or both) if your family has a breakfast meat preference.

Overnight Breakfast Strata

In a large bowl, beat eggs, milk, half and half, salt and pepper with a hand mixer for about 2 minutes. Then pour the egg mixture over the ingredients in the roaster oven pan. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate overnight.

Overnight Breakfast Strata

When you wake up, heat the roaster oven to 275˚while you brew the first pot of coffee. Then add the baking pan to the roaster oven base, put the lid on, and bake for an hour and 45 minutes to 2 hours until the mixture is almost cooked through.

Remove the lid and bake for an additional 30 minutes until the center of the strata is set.

Overnight Breakfast Strata

This roaster oven strata is a sight to see. It’s light and fluffy, packed with colorful veggies and plenty of protein. If you need a breakfast you can make the night before and won’t have any trouble feeding the entire family, make this roaster oven breakfast strata. You might even have enough to reheat the next few mornings.
