Okay, so you've read our guide on how to make the perfect poached egg. Maybe you've also read our tutorials on making great hard-boiled eggs and even scrambled hard-boiled eggs. Now comes the question: what's next?
Well, it's time to look at what accompanies the egg. You can't always eat it on an English muffin or toast. That can get pretty stale after a while (pun intended). Why not get innovative and figure out new ways to serve up eggs—ones in their own edible containers?
This dish always makes people smile. Here's a classic take on it:
There's also this adorable version, for someone you love:
If you really want to go the extra mile, you can use heart-shaped silicone molds to make this egg-and-bacon version:

Or use a waffle instead:
Want to serve your eggs for breakfast or dinner? Then go the more sophisticated route and put them in a dish of polenta:
This version with fontina cheese is fit for royalty:
But if you're looking for a more portable, on-the-go egg, you should try cooking them in a roast tomato:
Even if they're hard-boiled eggs:

If you're really trying to eat nutrient-dense foods, you can swap out that russet potato for a sweet potato:
Then again, an avocado is both healthy and colorful:
But if you really want to go for color, bell peppers can't be beat:
If you're not a fan of peppers, onions may be more your style:
If the mushroom is big enough to fit the egg, it'll work:
If you want a more citrusy taste, try an orange on for size:
I mean, who are we kidding here? This is really the best of both worlds:
You can always pay tribute to Dr. Seuss and make green eggs and ham cups:
