Urban Trend has some nifty things on their website, including egg molds AND a personal branding iron. I had one of those for Brigid's Home on the Range Cowgirl Shoot Em Up Ranch and Labrador Farm. But none of the cattle survived the branding.

But I was tempted to get some of their nifty egg molds to make fried eggs that looked like guns.

But some mornings I have trouble making eggs that look like EGGS.

I'm not one to waste anything, so if I put them on top of Brigid's Black Beans and Rice, with cilantro and colby/jack cheese, none of the ranch hands will complain. Your choice folks, this or a pop tart.

I thought so.


  1. I laughed out loud, I want those :)

    That is great....and the line "I have trouble making eggs that look like eggs" priceless :)

  2. I'd eat that, really I would. I'm a fool for beans--black, pinto, navy, great northern, black-eyed peas, boston baked, you name it.

    But, I'd send you back to the kitchen for a redo on eggs. Kudos for sunny-side, but you can't break the yolks! That is the sole purview of the consumer.

    Clean dry small omelet pan. Heat dry then add a pat of butter or a spray of PAM (a sin, I know). Drop eggs carefully into hot pan. If necessary break eggs prior into small bowl to insure yolk survival. Lather, rinse, repeat.

    Liberal application of fresh ground black pepper noted and applauded!

  3. I don't know about an egg on rice and beans, but in Germany I did see a pizza with a fried egg in the center. It was quite tasty!

  4. I have a vivid memory of my Dad laying his morning fried eggs on a bed of navy beans and corn-bread, leftovers from the previous evening meal. Depression-era habits can be hard to break.

    Dad liked eggs on must about everything, especially fried liver.

  5. Or at Amazon for $3.99, just do a search for "Gun Egg Fryer". . . love your blog Brigid!

  6. I'm hungry just looking at that last picture.
    Since I gave up smoking almost two years ago I gained a very much needed 40 pounds and I eat everything that is not nailed down.

  7. I love eggs, but I'm not a big fan of sunny side up. I betcha I could use those molds to make some cool looking pancakes, though. Grandkids will get a kick out of it :)

    I'm ordering some today!

  8. Those are great!

    You might even be able to make the "Egg in a basket" with a big enough piece of bread and use the egg fryer to cut a hole out of the bread. You could even make gun shaped biscuits or cookies using the egg molds to cut the dough with.

  9. Poptarts? Two mouthfuls of flour and 1/2 tsp. of cheap jam. Yuck.

    I don't care how your eggs turn out - that looks good, and not just for breakfast, either.

  10. Looks tasty, and 9 year old Emily wants some of those gun egg moulds! Something to add to the shopping list next time I'm west of the Atlantic.

  11. Very nice, but I still vote for huevos rancheros. 'Christmas' please (both red and green chili). Or the breakfast of champions - menudo with posole and a dollop of green.
    Why yes, I do have a cast-iron tongue. Why?

  12. Hello lass,

    I'll take the eggs please. They look delicious. Glad to see that you use cilantro. Good spice. and the Jack Cheese just finishes it off just right. Thanks for the link. I also liked the suggestions for the other uses for the gun fryers.

    Be well, and a pat for Barkley please. He would probably like some of those eggs, too!

  13. ALL of it looked good! And yes, reloading is like working on a car, or an airplane, it's rote work, occupying only a small piece of the mind, with the rest free to roam!
