Turn a boring sunny side up egg breakfast into a work of art! Funny Side Up’s four silicon molds – skull, owl, rabbit and guy with glasses make a statement. Just remember that you need two eggs per mold, and not to use too much egg white (don’t fill the whole mold up).
Chef Stef would suggest:
1 – These are inexpensive, silicon molds so keep your expectations in check – they are cute, not magical Michelin 3 star producing egg machines. To buy 1 of those, pay a culinary school tuition for a year or 2 and then try to pay off your student loans while making no money “interning.”
2 – Separate the yolks and egg whites and whip the eggs whites a bit with some milk or cream (makes it whiter).
3 – Butter and oil your NON-STICK skillet, heat till butter browns slightly (or it stops “screaming” as French chefs say), then put mold in and fill with egg whites (not to the top of the mold). You may need to use a spatula to press down on the mold to keep egg whites from leaking out underneath. It will leak regardless, so put a bit of egg white in, let cook for about 15 seconds, then put the rest of the egg whites into the mold. They will go into the section for the yolk but that is actually better for runny sunny side up eggs. Salt but do not pepper the egg white (cosmetic).
4 – Cover with a skillet lid and cook until egg whites are close to the desired texture. Then carefully add unbroken egg yolks into eye holes. Cover again and finish cooking for runny eggs.
5 – When serving, plate the whole egg still in mold. Cut away excess egg whites from around the outside of the mold (leaks) and carefully de-mold. If you want to use any non-white spices (pepper, etc) apply after serving or you will not get this pure white appearance. With a bit of practice you can have some fun with these molds!
