HISTORIQUE: An egg cup, sometimes called egg server, is a container used for serving boiled eggs within their shell. Egg cups have an upwardly concave portion to hold the egg and often include a base to raise the egg-retaining portion and give stability, informally known as footies.
Some egg cups are designed to be used either right side up or upside down, with one end having a larger cup than the other -- these are called double egg cups.
You put the large end of an unpeeled boiled egg in the cup, and then cut its tip off, either using an egg cutter or (more commonly) with a sharp blow or two from a knife to crack the shell, then cutting across to cut the top off completely.
They are commonly used in Europe, in the United Kingdom, and in Canada.
