TIP OF THE DAY: Serve Eggs In Mini Flower Pots

Last spring we published a tip on serving foods in mini flower pots—the size that can be used to pot small succulents.

You can use them anytime: to serve breakfast, brunch, lunch, dinner, desserts and snacks.

You can find mini flower pots in terra cotta or terra cotta-colored plastic. Either can go into the dishwasher.

For Mother’s Day or other special occasion, why not start the day by using them to serve scrambled or boiled eggs?

Use wax paper, parchment or butterhead lettuce leaves (bibb, Boston, green leaf, red leaf) to plug the drainage hole on the bottom of the flower pot; then add the food.

Garnish scrambled eggs or peeled boiled eggs with:

  • Minced chives or parsley
  • Salmon caviar (or other caviar or roe)
  • Truffles
  •  
    Include a salt shaker (or flavored salt) and a peppermill.
     
    DON’T WANT TO BUY FLOWERPOTS?

    You can serve scrambled eggs in a Martini glass.

    Don’t like eggs? Serve berries in the flower pots.
