    Default Egg rings on sale today

    I was looking for a way to MacGuyver an egg ring out of something I already
    had when it hit me.
    Mason jar lids!

    I'll see how it works shortly. Alton would be proud.

    Alas, I'll have to find a suitable can at the store. My tuna is in
    aluminum,round bottomed cans. Totally unopenable on the bottom.

    The mason jar lid did the trick on egg #1. I lubed it and placed it lip up
    in the skillet.
    Egg #2 stuck like a sumbitch and tore all to pieces when I lifted the lid.

    Toasted English muffins, ham, 1 perfect egg, 1 disaster. It'll all make a
    fabulous turd.
    I very rarely discard my mistakes.

    I wonder how they'd work as crumpet rings? Will you please test that
    idea out while you're in the kitchen? TIA

    Don't know about Mason jar lids, but tuna cans without the rounded
    bottoms worked well for me until I finally broke down and bought some
    real crumpet rings (King Arthur as I recall).

    I tried it once or twice with tuna cans, but the batter ran underneath
    the ring. I guess it was too thin. Do you have a favorite no fail
    recipe to post that would work for people who have never seen them
    made from scratch?

    I have some old tuna can rings like that, but nowadays, these cans
    have deep drawn bottoms, not lids on the bottom.

    Sure do.

    NO-RISE CRUMPETS
    From the NYTimes or one of the NYT cookbooks

    1/4 ounce dry yeast (2 3/4 teaspoons)
    1 3/4 cups warm (110 degrees) water
    1/2 teaspoon sugar
    3/4 teaspoon salt
    1 tablespoon baking powder
    2 cups flour (preferably bread flour)
    Crisco for greasing rings

    Grease crumpet rings with Crisco (it does work best but I guess
    unsalted butter would work too). Dissolve yeast in warm water; stir in
    sugar. Add remaining ingredients and beat well with a whisk until
    frothy. Pour 1/4 cup batter into each greased crumpet ring on
    preheated (450 degrees) griddle. Cook about 5 minutes on first side or
    until holes appear in batter. Remove rings. Turn crumpets and cook 2-3
    miutes longer until light gold. Remove and cool if not using
    immediately. If using, toast both sides in toaster oven, although this
    is not really necessary if they are cooked through. They will be
    rather thin, and do not need to be split. Serve with butter, clotted
    cream, jam or what-have-you.

    Note: This makes about 16 to 18. For the second batch, assuming you
    have 8 rings, you can turn them upside down to avoid any sticky bits
    from the first batch of batter, and use them again without regreasing.

    Try them in panko and deep fried with a small tasting of caviar on top after
    plating.

    I guess I was looking for a Lazy MacGuyver way out. I have enough tools to
    build a house, I just wanted some nice looking eggs to put on my english
    muffins without having to do a lot of work.

    To be honest, I first thought of dumping a can of soup just to use the can.
    No need in filling it to the top after all...

    I will search tomorrow for a can of tuna that has rims on both ends.
    I do believe the imported variety from South America fits the bill.

    Yeah, I'll get right on that, second Tuesday of next week.

    I'm trying to remember how we did it at McDonald's back in the 80s when we
    actually cracked eggs. There was a rectangular thing that sat on the
    grill and we poured egg into it. That was fine, but I can't remember how
    we got both sides cooked. Maybe it was just as easy as letting the egg
    cook on one side long enough, then lifting the "container" away and
    flipping it over. I just can't remember the whole process.

    Thanks, Felice - much appreciated! I will give this recipe a try
    after I accumulate something to substitute for the "rings".

    Have you looked at egg rings and compared them? Are egg rings smaller
    or the same size?

    I've actually never seen an episode. It's just that in my line of work
    (previous and current) it's mentioned a lot.
    Translation: Get it done by any means necessary.

    I just spelled it the way it sounded. Blame phonics.

    A pot lid that fits inside the skillet fills the bill. Thanks.

    Last time I had an Egg McMuffin, it was a real egg, so I'm guessing
    someone's cracking eggs there.

    If it weren't for my dietery restrictions, I'd eat McD's breakfast all the
    time. Wouldn't touch their burgers with a ten foot pole.

    I like McDonald's burgers. I only eat them a couple times a year and
    I'm behind schedule, not because I disapprove of McD - I just haven't
    gotten there yet.

    Professionals have processes to assist them creatively. There will be an
    initial consultation during which lots of questions are asked. Most
    designers use a design brief form. The questions on the form are
    designed to crystallize and solidify your identity and vision, so you
    and the designer are clear about it.

    They do crack eggs. One of my teenagers works at McD's. They are cooked in
    rings on the grill with a lid, greased with some margarine-y stuff.

    Shrimp cans work - I don't think they have riounded bottoms yet - or
    if they do, there are still the other kind (like's in my pantry).
