Inspired by Pinterest - Using Canning Rings

Like most of you, I'm on Pinterest. I wouldn't quite call myself addicted, but that's probably because I just don't have time! Anyway, one of the things that I thought would be fun to do would be to try out some things that I've found on Pinterest and see how they work.

So, for our first week - Using Canning Rings to cook Eggs.

Pinching Your Pennies
I saw this idea and thought it was perfect! We love making our own homemade breakfast sandwiches. I've been making them for years - since about 2004 when I'd moved out on my own and couldn't afford McDonald's breakfasts anymore! Anyway, I can easily make the eggs in a square shape to fit on toast, but I have yet to find a way to make the eggs round to fit nicely on a biscuit or english muffin.

I coated the whole ring in cooking spray and let it preheat with the pan on medium heat. In went the egg and it immediately started oozing out under the rings. I had to hold down the rings as I poured the egg inorder to get it to not ooze. I let them cook for a couple of minutes and then the bottom was starting to get a little golden so I decided it was time to try and turn it. And maybe that was my mistake. Maybe I turned it too soon, but I could not get it to come out of the canning ring. I had to practically rip it out. The part of the egg that wasn't completely done spilled all over the pan. I was able to salvage it and it still tasted it the same, but it wasn't easy.

I haven't given up hope. I'll try again, I think. Has anyone else tried this? Any tips or tricks that I'm missing?

  1. I haven't tried this yet but maybe if you put just a small amount of egg in first to cook a little. Also, have you tried turning the canning lids onto the other side? Maybe the extra "lip" will help to keep the eggs from running outside.


We know you're busy and we appreciate your comments and questions. Thanks for the love!
