This Kitchen Gadget is All You Need to Make The Perfect Breakfast Bagel Sandwich

* Handcrafted ceramic dish
* Microwave and dishwasher safe
* Makes the perfect bagel-shaped eggs

Perhaps no breakfast option is as deceptively simple as the bagel and egg sandwich. It seems like it should be one of the most convenient ways to start the day off, but with conventional cooking techniques, the bagel sandwich can turn into an unwieldy mix of order and chaos: the restrained, Euclidian nature of the bagel hopelessly at odds with the amorphous textures and shapes of eggs and vegan egg substitutes.

Enter this ingenious tool: the ceramic, hand crafted Egg on a Bagel Maker from Uncommon Goods. Not only does this dishwasher, oven and microwave-safe dish allow you to cook an egg into the perfect bagel-ready shape, it also speeds up the whole process considerably by allowing you to microwave the eggs. (Nuke it for 60 seconds).

Once the eggs are done, simply slide it out of the mold and onto your bagel. Adorn with tomatoes, bacon, cheese or whatever else your heart desires. Breakfast pro-tip for non-vegans: add a little milk or cream and take a second to whisk the eggs or egg whites in the dish, then add pepper and pop it in the microwave. The result is a palatable egg sandwich breakfast in under a minute flat.

Designed by Maggy Ames, an attorney-turned-pottery maker in New York City, the Egg on a Bagel Maker is made from food-safe glaze, stoneware clay. Each piece is entirely handmade and produced in the USA.
