Perfect circle eggs from egg rings
The egg rings had me frustrated when they leaked and instead of having a circular egg, I had an irregular blob. I found a technique that really helps make perfect circle eggs
Once in a while, I like to add an egg on top of my hamburger. Until last year, I hadn’t heard of doing that. The frustrating part was trying to get the eggs to not leak through the egg rings. I read one suggestion that I didn’t try which was to use your finger to spread some egg on the ring.
Silicone egg rings might be better but I have a bunch of the metal rings already. I have a ceramic pan that I beat the heck out of regularly. It’s still going strong. It has a relatively flat surface.
I decided to try heating the pan AND ring. I sprayed the pan and the ring, especially the inside, with Pam. Then I turned the burner up to 7/10 on the electric range. Let that sit for a couple of minutes but before the oil starts to burn. I then carefully cracked an egg and dropped it in.
The result is that I get an egg that is perfectly molded. Spraying the inside of the ring allows for easy, no mess, removal. The secret to success seems to be pre-heating the ring and pouring the egg in slowly.
Pour the egg relatively slowly into the ring.
It is a bit hard to tell from the pic but the egg was a perfect circle. The burnt oil is probably bad for you in a dozen ways. I’ll have to work on that. Perhaps I can just wipe the pan with a paper towel after spraying it.
Speaking of health, I used to have the store bought ‘breakfast sandwiches’ every morning. I never looked at the salt content. When I did, I was shocked. During the winter I could eat one and de-ice the driveway by peeing on it. It’s something like 30 to 40 percent of your RDA of sodium.
Now that I have mastered the intricate art of the round egg, I can make my own breakfast sandwiches up in advance or when I want one. I am avoiding those in favor of oatmeal because of the carbs in the bread.
SUMMARY – The technique needs a little refining but it is giving me an easy way to make eggs for hamburgers, bagels or muffins.
