Gadget Post

I don’t  know how many times I’ve looked at these things, or something like them, and thought “extravagance” and passed them by.  I decided to treat myself the last time I saw them.  These came in yesterday afternoon and Mrs J got first use when she made the sammich last night.

I decided to try them out this morning-had to feed myself because Mrs J wanted to spend time with the homeless dogs and cats rather than her needy, grasping, never satisfied hubby.  I’ll get over it.

The ring on the egg didn’t release easily (I forgot to spray it) but a gentle nudge freed it with no damage to the egg.  I packed the sausage ring full, I think next time I’ll just fill it half way.  It’ll cook faster, and the proportions of the assembled sammich will be more pleasing.  I left off the cheese this time.  I think it needs a slice of yellow American cheese to do it justice.

As before, lacking an English muffin, I sliced one of the jumbo sourdough buns and grilled them along with the sausage and egg.  I think my next project will be making English muffins from scratch.  I have a recipe in mind but if any of you know for sure of a really killer muffin recipe let me know.

  1. hmmm / english muffins from scratch / i made these on a wood burning stove while living in the mountains during my, period / i will follow you with interest

    meanwhile my grandson grew up on bagels in Vermont and is unhappy with the ones available here in our remote SE Utah town / sooooo ……
    i made bagels the other day and they were not only easy to make they were fun to make and i made vegetable cream cheese to go with



  2. If I may suggest for next time, get wide mouth canning lid rings. Similar size, much cheaper. Downsides are there’s no convenient handle, and if you forget to spray the threads can make it even harder to remove.

    And you can use the smaller lid rings for other things like biscuit sandwich fillers or other smaller sandwiches.


  3. Katherine…you tease me with bagels and cream cheese!
    The muffins are in an oiled bowl rising-I fear they may be a tad too dry. I still need to round up something to cut the circles out with but I’m just a tad too lame yet to be hopping about one-legged in the kitchen. LOL


  4. Kirk..long time no see. How is your housing situation working out for you?

    And sure, a fellow could use mason jar rings but where s the fun in that?


  5. Hi Kirk! Hi Katherine! Great to see you both. Fresh bagels, I’ve never tried that. Do you boil them? Jeffw see you’re hobbling around the kitchen already, please don’t overdo.

    I’ve made English muffin bread before, but not the actual muffins. If I remember right, the dough was dry…don’t know if it was suppose to be that way or cook error. Can’t wait to hear how they turn out.
