The quintessential British breakfast, and perfect for breakfast in bed - Boiled Eggs and Toast Soldiers are a British culinary institution!

Soft boiled eggs are commonly served in Britain in egg cups. The top of the egg is cut off with a knife leaving a jagged shell edge around the white and oozy yellow interior. Soft-boiled eggs have been eaten, by generations of British Schoolchildren, with buttered toast cut into strips, which are then dipped into the runny yolk. In the United Kingdom, these strips of toast are known as soldiers. Why is in issue...but it may come from Humpty Dumpty...or the way they line up ready for dipping??

The egg cup is a homage to Cornishware...probably the most iconic British breakfast china (mine has far less stripes though!!)

Designed completely by me ;)

Made from felt and stuffed with polyfil. Completely hand sewn and stuffed.

Please note that as each egg, egg cup and soldier is hand cut and sewn, the egg, shell and stripes may very slightly in each piece.
