    35 mins

  • Yields: As many as you need


As many eggs as you need or can fit

Silicone egg holders or silicone cupcake cases

Spray oil


1Add approx 1-2cm of warm water to bottom of slow cooker

2Spray each silicone case lightly with non stick oil spray - this helps them slide out easy when cooked

3(I used a combination of silicone egg cups and silicone cupcake cases - use whatever you have)

4Crack one egg into each cup and place carefully into the water so as not to tip them over

5Cover with tea towel under your lid

6Cook on high for 30mins (or less depending on how you like your eggs)

7And you can go about doing whatever else you need to while these eggs take care of themselves- too easy!:)

this could be usefull if you had few of family or freinds at one time maybe and not a rush thing to do…i’ll try it ..thanks

I don’t no 🙂
But different cookers will cook different times 🙂
Now you know your required time 🙂

Did you prewarm your slow cooker, I tried this recipe & it took nearly 90 minutes

Thanks Claire I’ll try again & see where we get to

Nothing wrong 🙂
Your cooker probably just cooks not as hot as some.
Just increase the time and you’ll know what time yours needs from then on in 🙂

We tried this this morning with 8 eggs in our 7.5l crockpot on high and after 30 mins they were still uncooked and the egg whites were still clear! What have we done wrong?

It really will depend on your slow cooker but generally speaking I would suggest checking from 20 to 30mins onwards
Once you know just what your’s needs you can do it that time every time 🙂

I do love a runny yolk, in your opinion how long should I allow for a runny yolk but a firm white? Thanks x

The paper cases would be a little weak when wet would be my concern … but you could try it an let us know? 🙂
You could also use little ramekins or mugs etc too

when doing these could you use the paper cases that you use for cakes or wouldn’t it work?

Sorry to hear that Charlie. Our text size hasn’t changed though?
Could you perhaps increase the percentage on your screen display instead … eg to 120% display so everything is larger? 🙂

The text is way too small. Not very good for the partially sighted. ;-(
