It’s long been said that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. And dating back even further into antiquity, laughter has been prescribed as the best medicine. So who can dispute the therapeutic benefits of accompanying the nourishment of breakfast with the positive effects of a healthy chuckle? This Skull Shaped Egg Mold by Funny Side Up turns the twin yolks of two everyday, perfectly normal eggs served sunny side up or over easy into the wide, staring yellow eyes of a comical-looking skull composed of the whites.
Skull Shaped Egg Mold More Amusing Than Macabre
“If you gaze into the Skull Shaped Egg breakfast, the Skull Shaped Egg breakfast gazes into you.” — Famous go-getter Friedrich Nietzsche’s feelings about the most important meal of the day.
Some might argue that staring into the ghastly face of a skeletal breakfast is a sobering reminder of one’s own mortality, but I call nonsense on such notions. The deliciousness of fried eggs (my favorite way to make them), hash browned potatoes, and a side of bacon (perhaps arranged in Jolly Roger crossbones fashion as seen in the picture above) is an affirmation of life, not a denial.
Skull Shaped Egg Mold + Frying Pan = Best Breakfast, Ever
Some things are extremely simple to use. The Skull Shaped Egg Mold is one such product. The only additional items that you will need to cook your eggs perfectly inside of this mold are a frying pan and either butter or a non-stick baking spray.
Here are some fun facts about the Skull Shaped Egg Mold:
- It is made of silicon rubber.
- It measures approximately 1″ x 5″ x 5″.
- It can withstand temperatures from -20 degrees F all the way up to 450 degrees F.
- It is 100% dishwasher safe.
- It comes with cooking instructions.
After reading through some of the reviews on the Amazon website, I found a few helpful hints that you should know. Use a pan that is larger than the mold itself. One reviewer even mentioned using a 12″ pan since it tends to be flatter on the bottom. The pan and the mold itself should be sprayed with non-stick cooking spray, while some people stated that butter worked best for them. Heating the pan and the mold first before popping in the eggs was also recommended.
