Does anyone have any tips on how to make an egg patty, like basically scrambled egg but in patty form like they put on breakfast sandwiches? I know they sell rings for this purpose, but does anyone know how to make them without a ring?

  1. use a can like tuna. Spray with Pam inside before adding egg and cooking. One the egg begins to set up, add a bit of water to the pan and cover. Cook to your doneness.
    You could also use a ramekin. Break egg into oiled ramekin and bake in oven in bain marie. Should flip out.

      1. I make them free form on a hot griddle -- basically a small 1-egg omelette without any filling. Pour beaten egg onto hot griddle and as it begins to set, fold over with a spatula to approximate the shape that you want. May not be as pretty as what you get at McDonalds but works fine.

        1. Maybe use a technique like a Japanese Rolled Omelet?
