What is an Egg Patty?
Egg patties are made with an egg mold and an egg. Round is the desired shape because they fit well on pancakes, bagels, biscuits, or English muffins.
They are used for layering and making into a sandwich. You can also make a large batch of the egg patties to eat as a snack or freeze for an easy meal later.
Cook time will vary. The average cook time will be about 4 to 5 minutes.
Types of Egg Rings
- Blackstone Silicone Egg Rings – My egg ring of choice which comes in round and square shapes. I have a set and use them all the time. Each ring comes with a handle and the eggs do not stick to the rings at all.
- Silicone Egg Mold – This is a great choice if making several egg patties at once. Place the silicone mold onto the flat top griddle, spray with cooking spray, and pour your desired number of eggs into each mold.
- Metal Egg Rings – An early version of the now very popular silicone egg rings but works just fine. They have a handle for ease of use.
- Cookie Cutter – You can use the best cutter shape that fits the sandwich you are making. You will want to grease the inside of the ring.
- Canning Ring – Use a mason jar or canning ring. Make sure to spray the inside with cooking spray for easy removal of the egg patty.
- Ring of Aluminum Foil – The cost of this is very low and super easy to make. Just take a strip of aluminum foil and crumple to a long strip. Attach the ends together to form a ring. Or you can fold the foil and then attach the ends to make a ring.
- Empty Tuna Can – This is for the person that does not want to spend any money on rings. Just take an empty tuna can and cut both ends off with a can opener. Make sure to clean the can ring properly. Be careful not to cut yourself on the sharp can edges.
How to Make an Egg Patty
My number one tip is to grease the mold and griddle surface with cooking spray to help with the sticking. Make sure to use fresh eggs.
After the fresh eggs have been poured into the mold, season them with salt and pepper. Cover with a dome lid to help with the cooking process.
Three Different Egg Patties
Hard Egg Patty – Pour a whole egg into the mold that is on the hot griddle surface. Poke a hole in the egg yolk and swirl slightly to combine. Do not over mix. You want to see egg white and egg yolk.
Scrambled Egg Patty – Crack the egg into a small bowl. With a fork, scramble the egg white and yolk together so they are completely combined. Pour the scrambled egg into the mold that is on the hot griddle surface. Cook until the egg is set. If desired, flip the egg over and cook the other side.
Fluffy Scrambled Egg Patty – Crack the egg into a small bowl and add a splash (1 teaspoon) of heavy cream or milk. Scramble the ingredients together with a fork so they are completely combined. Pour the scrambled egg/milk into the egg mold that is on the hot flat top griddle surface. As the scrambled egg patty cooks, it will fluff up and expand. Cook the fluffy egg until it is set and flip the egg if needed.
Use a Frying Pan with Egg Rings
When it’s not possible to make egg patties on a flat top griddle, then use a frying pan on the stove. If making several patties, then you will have to work in batches. Preheat the large fry pan on medium heat.
Lightly grease the pan. Once the pan is hot, put the greased egg ring on it and pour your desired eggs into the ring. Season the egg with salt and pepper. Cook and flip if needed.
How to Store Egg Patties
After the eggs are cooked, cool the patties in a single layer. Once the egg patty is cooled place in a single layer in an airtight container.
You can layer the eggs if you place a piece of wax or parchment paper in between them. Store in the refrigerator for up to 6 days.

How to Freeze Egg Patties
Place the cooled patties in an airtight container. Layer the eggs with parchment or wax paper in between the layers. Freeze for up to 2 months.
When ready to eat an egg patty, remove the desired amount from the freezer and let thaw. You can warm up in the microwave, air fryer or just eat at room temperature because they are already cooked.

Low Fat Egg White Patties
This is for the healthy eaters, and it works perfectly for you. Split white eggs from egg yolks and place into separate containers.
Use only the egg whites and pour into the prepared egg molds on the hot griddle. Season with salt and pepper.
Cook until the egg white is set and flip if needed. Your egg patties are cooked to perfection to reduce fat and cholesterol without losing taste.
