I only poke a hole through each yolk with a toothpick, my yolks stay round and are that yummy golden nugget that I eat eggs for. Just don't tell my cardiologist

Yeah, I forgot about having to clean the ring.

I guess I'm much more casual. My usual breakfast is to fry an egg in a little butter or fat. I flip it and usually poke it with the spatula with the goal of having the yolk a bit runny, and sometimes throw some Gruyere cheese over, and maybe some diced green chiles. Then I move the pan off the burner and heat a flour tortilla directly over the flame, flipping a few times. I use the spatula to shovel the egg mixture into the tortilla, spike it with Tapatio sauce and roll it up. The only dirty dishes are the frying pan and spatula.

I like the idea of having somebody cook my breakfast but my dog is undependable. Nor do I envision him washing the dishes. There is no such thing as a dirty dish to a dog.

I use a cheapo tin biscuit cutter that I spray with Pam. Sticking is not an issue.

LOL! it's takes two hours for my brain to turn on in the morning, I'm not allowed near the stove until I am awake. That's why my mornings are so busy.

I keep tuna cans with tops and bottoms cut out in my gadget drawer for cooking pseudo McMuffins. The newer cans have rounded bottoms, so you may need to search out cans that work.

You may have assumed that I eat breakfast within two hours of waking. More like 4 hours, and I awake before dawn, not that I want to. One thing for sure, I prepare my coffee maker before turning in, so that all I have to do is poke the switch when I get up in the morning.

There's a clever idea!

8 oz pineapple cans and water chestnut cans can have both ends opened and work well as egg rings. I use a silicone egg ring since I use Teflon pans. I have tried the microwave, but I like the yolk a little runny and that seems pretty much impossible in the microwave. I don't have sticking issues with the silicone. Most of the time I use the nudge method, since I generally make an egg sandwich on toast. I just need the egg to be vaguely bread shaped lol

DW got me six of them for christmas. I tried them and was unimpressed. The only way they would be of use is to beat the eggs, with a bit of added milk, and add such items as little chunks of cheese, diced meat, and diced veggies to make an egg dish with those ingredients imbeded into the egg. That might be interesting. Or you could beat the egg with seasonings, and place a sausage meatball (cooked) in first. Pour in the egg, and cook. The meatball would be a pleasant suprise for the eater. I also thouth the cups might be good for making pana cotta, or baked custards.
