  • Mason Jar Lid Ring/Band (Make sure it is stainless steel, not the kind with the plastic coating)
  • Skillet
  • kitchen spray
  • Tongs
  • Spatula


  • 1 large egg
  • 1 tbsp oil or butter 15g


  • Set stovetop burner heat to medium. Place the skillet on the burner and spray it with cooking spray or use butter or oil. Then spray the mason jar ring generously. Place the ring in the middle of the pan.
  • Crack the egg into the ring. Allow it to cook for a few minutes. Use tongs and a spatula and flip it over and cook that side for 20 seconds or so for an over-easy fried egg.
  • Use the tongs and remove the ring from the egg. It still may stick a bit to the ring, just wiggle it a little and the egg will come out.
  • Serve the egg however you want. I love to make homemade McDonald's Egg McMuffins. Enjoy!
