Mom's Vintage Egg Poacher

Do you sometimes like breakfast for dinner? We sure do! I LOVE using my Mother-in-laws tiny egg poacher we inherited! It brings back fond memories for hubby. I am sure it is from the 1940's and in perfect condition. It's the little things that make life sweet... Bake your bacon! Less grease.
Line a jelly roll pan with foil.
Place a cookie rack over foil.
Line the bacon on the rack.
Cook at 400 degrees for 10-15 minutes.
All ovens vary, so keep an eye on it!
***You can sprinkle a little brown sugar over the bacon for a yummy twist!***

Do you have a piggy cutting board to?!
Doesn't breakfast sound good for dinner tonight?

We love breakfast for dinner! But I have to admit, I don't think I have ever poached an egg, although they do look good.

Hi Maryjane...
I've never had poached eggs...but that mini egg poacher is just too cute. I love vintage stuff!!!!...can't get enough of it..and I think a lot of products from the 50s and earlier are so very well made.
Oh, I think we are kindred spirits in breakfast. I LOVE breakfast for my dinner. So does my father. We'll do that at least once a week. Baking bacon is a great idea. I'll have to try that and see how it works. Have a great week...oh, now I think I know what I"ll have for dinner tomorrow nigiht :) Love and hugs, Heather :)

Good Morning, Maryjane,
I love eggs too, and my hubby makes them for me nearly every Saturday. And who doesn't like bacon?! I teach the kids in my Basic Foods classes to bake it in the oven like that... And you don't have to be turning it over and over in the pan...it just cooks itself! Amazing!!

Have a marvelous Monday. ~Natalie

Claudia said...

We love, love having breakfast for dinner. Usually it is something with eggs - like an omelet or pancakes. You know I'm not eating bacon! Although there is this wonderful stuff called fakin bacon that is pretty darn good.

Miss you, sweet friend!

Marydon said...

Oh, boy! do I remember this machine well. I never liked the eggs poached as they 'ran' ... go figure a kids mind!

Good thing I just ate my breakfast or I'd be heading on over. Chuckle ...

Have a beautiful week.
TTFN ~ Hugs, Marydon

It's my favorite....we call it Breakfast supper! My hubby grills bacon now and we've discovered the bacon uncured with no additives! So good...but I still love Beef bacon best! Enjoy your day! ♥

Farmhouse Country said...

Wow MaryJane that looks so good! We love breakfast for dinner at our house, my kids get so excited when we do...we call it a backwards night. I was catching up on your blog and saw a few of the signs you ordered from the Mercantile, they look so good in their new home! The trailer you have the FGT sign in is just darling. Thanks for sharing.
Hugs, Dee

Love your vintage piece, and love that you are using it!

Elyse said...

mmmmm! maryjane, you know how to live!

this dinner sounds delish. i love breakfast-dinner but it doesn't thrill hubby although last week i talked him into making blueberry pancakes (he's the house pancake cook) and i smothered mine in fresh strawberry preserves and pure maple syrup = pure deliciousness!!! knees weak! LOL

thanks for the bacon tip!

love,
elyse

Love the poached egg maker; we have a waffle iron that's "vintage" and use it all the time.
I have a cast iron skillet with ridges and fry bacon in that; all the grease drips down and the bacon is left dry.

A Write Life said...

What I love is that cute little hot pad that is peeking into the last photo. Great idea. I'll have to try it for the bacon.

Deb said...

Oh man that looks good. I've been on a strict diet and haven't eaten bacon since last year. I might have to add this to my "one day a week splurge". Love that poacher, too. We have an old toaster that your poacher reminded me off. Chrome, Bakelite handles and the cloth covered cord.

Carol said...

That is so neat! and I love the idea of sprinkling some brown sugar on the bacon.......yum

HI Maryjane...
I was looking at your recipe for homemade laundry detergent :) :) Love it..!!! The one I use currently came out of Mary Jane's Farm magazine...from Aug/Sept. 2009. I'll try the recipe you have. I have a question though. You say to use 3 bars of Fels Naptha...that stuff is great and cheap!!! You also said we could use Pink Zote soap...but to use
1~1/3...did you mean only use One and a third bars of Pink Zote soap? I just want to make sure I have the ratio right. There's a company called Lehman's in Ohio, that I order from occasionally :) :) they sell that pink Zote soap :) :)
Anyway, I didn't know if you'd see my comment if I left under laundry comment..since it was from last year :) :) :)
Oh yes....breakfast for dinner is good. My dad and I did that last night, again :) :) :) It never gets old...always a good meal :) :)
love and hugs from Oregon, Heather :) :) :)

What a great way to make bacon - just the way I like it! Thanks so much.
The egg poacher is fantastic - what a great item with wonderful memories. :-)

The Tablescaper said...

I love poached eggs, but can't imagine using that poacher ?!?!? Do you really use it with that cord? It would make me nervous.

I too think baking bacon is the only way to go!

Sounds oh, so delish. A pig cutting board is just a must. I just love the charm it adds to the kitchen.
