Round eggs! Yes, you could cut them with a cookie cutter. You could buy the fancy egg rings. But, it’s so much easier and cheaper to just use a canning jar ring. Who knew?! With the leftover ham from Easter, and hubby starting work at 5 am (does that hour really suggest work?), I was racking the brain for something to make him for transportable breakfast.  Cheesy ham and egg biscuits like the McMassmanufacture! So I set out to make my own. I baked canned biscuits and set them out to cool. Then took a wide mouth canning jar ring and sprayed it with cooking spray on the inside of the ring.I put the ring right side up into a nonstick pan and got them both hot on just a tad over medium heat. Cracked the egg and delicately dropped it into the ring. Used the tongs to center the yolk and let it cook until set well. I took the ring off carefully with the tongs. I flipped the egg over to finish the top side and took it out to cool. Repeat with spraying the ring each time until you have as many as you want to make. Then I sliced the biscuits, topped with a slice of thick ham, placed a round egg on and topped with a slice of cheese. I wrapped in parchment paper, then plastic wrap, and bagged to go in the freezer. They made my mouth water and I haven’t even gotten to eat one!   A couple of minutes in the microwave and instant breakfast for hubby! Next up is breakfast burritos with scrambled eggs, bacon, and cheese. Those can go in the freezer too.  Thanks for drooling!

Looks really yummy! :) You can do this in the microwave, too, if you have rice bowls... I spray a corelle rice bowl with Pam, crack an egg into it, gently poke the yolk with a toothpick, place the bowl in the microwave with a small plate on top and nuke for 30 second increments until done. SO Easy and always good... :)

I tried that, but with the ridges in the top it would cook it's self to the sides. I eventually bought non-stick egg rings. you also need to have a flat pan because if it is warped some of the eggs will leak out. the other option is to buy a small fry pan like the one I have is 6 inches. this is how the waffle house makes there eggs. I spent a week eating breakfast and just observing how they cooked eggs.

I have a small pyrex bowl just the right size, I may try that one, thanks GF4US.

KingSparta, I didn't have any problems with the ring as long as I sprayed it on the inside, it just came right off, and my pan is nice and flat, it's a small one I don't use very often. A griddle would work too I think.

I'll try that idea, Sassy! Thank you!

Awesome idea! You just never know what can be a "multi-tasker" in the kitchen. Besides yourself, of course :)(:

Hey Sassy, pretty good idea, hadn't thought about canning lid rings. My Pop uses a tuna can for his Mc Eggs as he calls them. Cuts the top and bottom off and sprays with oil. My boys gave me a rubber egg ring for Christmas that has a cute little egg face lifter on it. I've used it a couple times to make egg muffin sandwiches.

I can't take all the credit, I say it while cruising the net. But, loved how to use something I already have and not buy one more gadget! My drawers overfloweth now.

Saw it, I saw it!

Sherri, I was thinking of a can of some kind when I found the ring idea. My tuna cans are the really big kind, so it would be a no go.

What a GREAT idea, Sassy! I'll surely try this to see how it works. I'm thinking on a homemade English muffin tho'.... Hmmmm, wonder how many eggs I could handle cooking all at once? Hmmmm. Thanks for sharing!

Those look so good. What a great idea I used to make the kids sausage and egg biscuits, but I used scrambled eggs. Your are so much neater!

Stevie, if I had dug around in the cupboard I might have found another ring or three, but I only did four, so just used the one. It was a wide mouth ring, I think the regular size ones might be too little to use.

BSM, I did break the yolk on one to see how it would do. You could scramble the egg a little and do it the same way, should work ok. I don't experiment enough in the kitchen!

I learned a recipe as a kid that's kind of become a family tradition, but it is basically an egg mcMuffin, renamed with our family name (we call them 'egg mcMillers'). I have always scrambled an egg in a custard cup with butter, microwave it, and it slides right out : ). I'm going to try your method this weekend.

That is so cool! XOXO

Great idea Sassy. Son is coming home from school and when he starts his summer job, needs to be there by six. I've always made breakfast casseroles, cut in big pieces and individually froze. This will give me another great option to make. I could do with biscuits and english muffins to give him a variety. Thanks for sharing your methods. I'm going to call ours: The McSassy Sandwich

My hubby goes in at 3am. I have been doing very messy looking sausage and egg sandwiches figuring at that hour he wouldn't notice. Won't he be surprised on Monday with a fancy schmancy perfect egg?? Thanks !

Just a note, I did find these were easier to reheat if put in frig first or added to lunch box to thaw before nuking works best. The thick cut ham makes them a little hard to bite into, deli ham might work better, but doesn't taste near as good! Hubby said bottom biscuit was 'wet', but the one I tried wasn't that way so IDK. But the roung egg part works! I made another half dozen to add to the freezer with the rest of the ham from Easter and still haven't made the rollups yet!

Great idea. I think I will do these for when we go camping for Sunday morning breakfast.
