As Seen On TV!

What's wrong with this bagel & egg sandwich?


I would say nothing at all and that it was quite delicious. At the festival this weekend we had someone looking for a microwave egg cooker. She said it looked like an apple baker but was made for cooking an egg with hole in it so that you could make a bagel and egg sandwich. I really don't get the point. I often make bagel and egg sandwiches and was never concerned that the egg covered the hole! I just don't see it as a problem. Then again, I am also not one to use the microwave for any actual cooking, aside from the occasional potato.

The other request we had was for a mug with a hollow handle that wouldn't get hot in the microwave. This woman had seen them on television and really thought that we should switch to making our handles hollow. I just smiled and said that I we like our handles and hollow ones would change the aesthetics. Jeff said I should have asked her how many she would buy if the handles were hollow.

I am really not into gimmicky pots, the sponge holder is as far as I will go.

  1. someone wanted me to make a casserole lid for their broken store bought one, they had asked Gary, he said he was sure I wouldn't make it, he was correct. The good think about the egg covering the hole is you can see it while you're eating it. Ha.

    wondering would hollow handles have a chance of blowing up?

  3. Linda, I would imagine you would have to put a hole in the handle with a needle tool or would blow.
    My egg sandwich is on a wood fired plate by Matt Jones. It's my go to breakfast plate. It has a slip trailed fish design that I just love.

  6. Also, forgot to say, our microwave died two years ago and I can't for the life of me recall what I used it for, it's a very unnecessary appliance.....

  8. I don't really want to make pots that don't speak to me... even if some of those are slow sellers.
