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.

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.

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.

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.

Classic deviled eggs are great, but how about adding avocado for a twist on a classic?

Avocado Deviled Eggs

We used the Egg Cooker to cook our eggs, but you could certainly hard boil them in a pot on the stove. Once the eggs are cooked, peel them, cut them in half and remove the yolks.

Avocado Deviled Eggs

Using the food processor chopping/mixing blade, process eggs yolks, avocados, cilantro, mayonnaise, pepper and cumin until the mixture is smooth. Pipe or spoon the mixture into each egg white half.

Avocado Deviled Eggs

Top each Avocado Deviled Egg -or Green Devil as they are sometimes called- with salsa and a sprig of cilantro. The salsa complements the avocado in the eggs, and adds a burst of red to this already colourful dish. Put these on the table for brunch or as an appetizer and wow your guests with a creamy, flavourful take on deviled eggs.

“How would you like your eggs?” I don’t know about you, but this question always throws me for a loop. How do you expect me to decide between soft, runny poached eggs, or fluffy, cloud-like scrambled eggs? I thought I already had a tough time deciding how to cook my eggs in the morning, then the Test Kitchen introduced me to sous vide egg bites. Thanks to the Hamilton Beach Professional Sous Vide and 6 Quart Slow Cooker there is yet another way to enjoy eggs.

Sous vide cooking is a no-fail cooking method that uses a temperature-controlled water bath to cook sealed food evenly and to desired doneness. To learn more about sous vide cooking, click here.

To make sous vide egg bites, select sous vide mode on the Hamilton Beach® Professional Sous Vide and 6 Quart Slow Cooker and set the temperature to 172 degrees for 1 hour.

Add eggs, sour cream, feta cheese, salt, black pepper, and crushed red pepper to a blender or food processor. Blend or process until the mixture is smooth, then add roasted red peppers and fresh basil to the mixture and pulse until combined.

We found that 4 oz clear canning jars were the perfect size for our sous vide egg bites. Spray the inside of the jars with nonstick cooking spray then divide the egg mixture evenly amongst the jars. Seal the jars tightly and add them to the preheated water bath and press start.

 

Once the egg bites are cooked, remove the jars from the water bath and enjoy. The jars can serve as a functional cooking vessel AND an attractive way to serve these cute, individual bites. If you would rather plate your eggs, simply slide a butter knife along the sides of the jars – the eggs will pop right out.

 

How would I describe these egg bites? Delicate. Silky. Rich. Any word you’d use to describe the perfectly cooked eggs. Whether you are keeping pre-cooked bites in the fridge as an grab-n-go breakfast during the week or serving them at brunch, each and every bite will be egg-cellent.
