We love all food Mickey-shaped so we were excited to try out the Mickey Silicone Breakfast Mold set from Disney Eats. Read on to see how it worked out and what we used it for.
The first thing we tried making was a straight sunny side up egg. Our kids love eggs so it seemed like a good place to start. We were using it in a 9" non-stick skillet and gave the mold a little spray with some PAM to help it release better. We did notice that in this size pan we could only use one mold at a time in order to get a good seal between the pan and the mold otherwise it leaked out of the sides. The mold needs to be on the flat bottom of the pan. We could fit two in our larger frying pan.
One tip we discovered was to tip the pan as soon as you crack the egg in to it to make sure that you get a more even distribution into the ears. Another tip is if you don't want sunny side up eggs you will have to take the mold off before you flip them.
Next we tried egg whites. I love fried egg whites and so do the kids. These worked out really well for all the Mickey mold shapes. Following the tips we picked up from trying the whole eggs we poured the egg whites into the mold. We eat enough that we buy the cartons of just egg whites.
Our last test was with pancakes. The first time we tried they did not turn out at all! We filled up the mold to the top but that created too thick a pancake. It was impossible to fully cook the inside while avoiding burning the outside. we recommend filling them about 2/3 full for best results. For these molds the Mickey head worked best for pancakes.
Again, make sure that you tip the pan to evenly distribute the batter into all parts of the mold. Also you will need to take off the mold right before you are ready to flip them.
