Demarle originated in France. It is best known for Silipats, made famous via Martha Stewart. They are also well known in the restaurant industry. This flexible bakeware is made from silicone, fiberglass, and I dont know what else. I do known it is magic.
Over the years I have picked up an assortment of pieces. Demarle isn't cheap. The average piece is $40-$60. My friends know I am cheap (insert chuckles here), but when it comes to Demarle I will fork out some money...it is that good.
Cooking casseroles Roasting veggies Basic baking Meatloaf Roasting meat
Chocolate/cheese molded bowls Grilled cheese sandwiches (I can make six at a time)
Cookies Pizza Egg McMuffins(see below) Freezing soups/leftovers in individual serving sizes
Fancy ice cubes Jello molds Brownies w/ a cavity for frosting/fillings
This list could go on and on. The great thing is cleaning is as simple as soap and water. There is no scrubbing. I am a lazy cook so this is essential. Did I mention it is easy to store as well? I can fit twelve pieces in one drawer...no joke. We go to the beach several times throughout the year and tend to cook gourmet meals there because we have the time. I can slip this stuff in a bag and it takes up no space.
Alright do I sell this stuff? Nope. I could since I believe in it that much, but alas I just don't need anymore on my plate. However, I am hosting a party on the 15th. Friends will come, eat, drink and perhaps buy. I have my eye on a few new pieces and with the holidays coming up I am sure it will be used. You can check it out at www.demarleathome.com.

Now back to the Egg sMcMuffins. Demarle makes a dish (not sure what else to call it) that has eight circle shapes. On Sunday night I take a dozen eggs and put two in each cavity. I often put only egg whites in a few and leave out the yolks. I crack the yolks, add a bit of salt and pepper and bake them at 350 for twenty minutes. After they cool I put them in a container for the week.
In the morning I pop one out put it on an English muffin ( they fit perfectly), place a sausage patty or bacon (also made on Sunday on a Demarle product), a slice of cheese and place into a bag. My husband and I take them to work where we warm them up and eat them. Delicious. My students try to buy them off of me, but alas I can't share my food :-).
