Egg Rings - Handy Tools For Perfect Looking Food

Updated on March 15, 2011

Incredible Egg Rings

Egg rings are rings made of different heat resistant materials which are used to cook fried eggs in a perfect shape. Though the circular variety are the most popular, there are dozens of shapes to choose from. They can also be used to cook other items like pancakes etc. Sometimes you can also find many rings connected together to help you to make multiple pancakes and eggs at once.

Much like their cousins, egg poachers, they make your cooking easier and aesthetically pleasing. Another advantage of using the rings is that you can cook two different things together in a pan. With the help of the rings you can cook together a pancake and a sausage or even an green eggs and ham, thus saving a lot of time using these multipurpose rings.

Most of these egg rings have handles so that it's very easy to lift them out of the pans. They are usually made of non-stick and heat resistant materials which can be used freely inside the skillet. Cleaning them is a snap. You can also use them in the dishwasher because most of them are dishwasher safe, and best of all, they're pretty cheap.

Egg Rings Have a Ton of Uses

If you have kids at home, you can amuse them by creating various shapes of fried eggs. When you use a normal frying pan, you never know how it's going to look (often not appetizing). Egg rings, however, enable you to create beautifully shaped meals, which can be in the form of circles, hearts, butterflies, swans, island huts, flowers...the list goes on. So if your children hate eating breakfast, here's a new way to entice them.

A savvy cook uses the tool in different ways to present the food in an attractive manner. You can use them for frying, poaching and cooking sunny-side-up of several eggs at a time. The tool is a perfect accessory which can also be used as a meat shaper.  For various sizes and shapes of hamburgers, veggie or turkey burgers, sausages, salmon croquettes, or crab cake patties, you can use this handy tool. Go ahead and show off that steady and flawless hand to you hungry guests.

If you love pancakes, you can totally cut loose using these suckers. You can make large, small and medium pancakes according to the size and shape of the rings. Children who have a small appetite can be given the smaller ones while gluttonous grownups, who can eat more can be served with the larger varieties.

You may also want to consider them for preparing vegetable dishes. Blend all the vegetables in a blender and pour them into the ring and get a vegetable pancake with meat consistency. If you are creative, you can use it for making different kinds of dishes. One interesting recipe which can be cooked using the rings is cheese and fried macaroni. While cooking, make sure that you dust the cheese and macaroni balls with flour before placing them in the oiled surface of the rings. If you want to go buck wild, deep fry them up.

Shrimps and grits are also a delicious dish idea for this invaluable tool. You can cook the dish easily by using the spicy mix of boiled grits, red pepper, shrimp, scallions, bacon, butter, cheese, and garlic. Place the mixture into the rings and get beautifully shaped shrimp and grits. Since the rings come in different shapes, they can also be used to make a variety of other dishes which require cutters for getting different fancy shapes.

You can easily purchase these rings from many online stores. Use different shapes and sizes to amaze your family and friends with fabulously fun meals.
