The single pan that SLOF suggested works well. I have one too, mine came with a small egg whisk with the same little egg on legs on it. Not sure why people would scramble one egg though

I use the egg rings for poached eggs only. They do help control those runaway whites. They drive me crazy and make the egg look so unappealing.

I learned how to make eggs in egg rings at my very first job, McDonalds. And we did flip. The eggs held their shape just fine. ;)

Well dang, a flipper
And since an egg McMuffin is what I am trying to duplicate... seems like a no brainer to try flipping the egg, also.

So was a lid involved before the flip? What did you look for before you flipped?

Egg McMuffins are slightly scrambled.

When I bite an egg sandwich, I want yolk...all over. Yes, I wear a bib!

All we did was pop the yolk. And they just looked solid before the flip.

I got to thinking about this and my favorite egg ring is a piece of buttered bread (both sides) with a hole cut in it with a biscuit cutter. Again, I flip when the egg looks done. Fry up the little rounds too!!

Just looked solid, gotcha.

Love egg in a frame... so many names they go by.
I just used a glass to cut the hole, but now that I have official egg rings I can use those!

Brilliant - obviously. Not sure why I never thought of this but I'm glad you've pointed it out.

I don't flip my egg. I just put a pie tin over the pan and that cooks the top just fine. I can take the tin off while the yolk is still soft and runny, or leave the tin on until the yolk gets cooked through.
