We Try Fried Egg Moulds and the Results Are Both Amazing and Catastrophic

Okay, so the results depended hugely on the person responsible for the frying pan. The phrase “user error” comes to mind…

In our fried egg endeavours, although we came out with egg on our faces (and hands, pans, and t-shirts) we also picked up a few tricks along the way.

Here’s what we learned.

The pressure of a challenge doesn’t always yield the best results

We’ve not yet introduced ourselves. How rude! We’re Mariya and El, two spare parts of the wonderful appliance that is eSpares.

In the spirit of fun (and fierce, fierce competitiveness) we decided to each have two turns with the fried egg shapers and see who could do best.

These are the five we had to choose from.

In our quest for perfection, just like our eggs, we cracked a little under pressure.

Separating the eggs in advance was a super smart move

We’re not sure how hard it would have been to try and get the yolk perfectly in the right place and still have the whites spread out to fill the mould. Luckily we didn’t have to find out because we didn’t put all of our eggs in one basket (we used two bowls).

Don’t, repeat DON’T, use a saucepan instead of a frying pan

El thought it would work better because it had a flatter base. El was wrong.

Egg Burning In Saucepan

Yes, that’s smoke. The smoke alarm noticed it too.

Pressing down a little on the mould when you pour your white in helps keep the shape

Just be careful not to burn your fingers!

Don’t try lifting the egg out of the pan using just the mould

This idea is terrible and will never work and we don’t know what we were thinking.

Taking Fried Egg Mould Out Of Pan

Just why?

Put the egg yolks in a couple of seconds after the whites so they’re lovely and runny

If you like your egg yolks runny that is. Which of course you do because everyone prefers a runny yolk except crazy people.

Cutting Open A Runny Egg Yolk

If your mouth isn’t watering you’re a bad egg.

Put enough egg white in to form a little cushion for your yolks to land on

Otherwise, they can burst which is no yolk.

Use a medium heat

If the pan was too hot the bottom of the eggs burnt before the whites could finish solidifying.

Who won?

The all-important results revealed! Mariya was a natural.

Pride comes before a fall, literally in this case. Mariya was a dab too enthusiastic.
