Bring a small pan of water to a simmer. Use enough water to cover the egg coddler by 1” or to come ½ way up the custard cup. Spritz some cooking spray into an egg coddler or ramekin or custard cup. Break the egg into the coddler or ramekin, and add and salt/herbs to taste. IF USING A CODDLER: Screw on the lid of the coddler and lower it into the water. IF USING A CUSTARD CUP OR RAMEKIN: carefully place the custard cup into the water and adjust the water level so it comes up half-way. Put the lid on the pot. Simmer 4.5 minutes then turn off the heat and leave the eggs in the water for about 3 minutes more. Toast the bread and serve with mixed fruit/yogurt. Pour your hot breverage, and the smoothie. You will feel coddled and cossetted when you treat yourself to this breakfast.
