How do you get baked on eggs out of muffin tins?
If your egg muffin cups are stuck to the muffin tin, you can place the tin in the freezer for a half hour, then scrape out the muffins with a knife.
This will keep them from breaking into pieces, and they can easily be reheated. To avoid this issue, we recommend investing in a silicone muffin mold instead of a muffin tin.
It’s much easier to remove muffins from a flexible mold, as you can simply push the egg muffin up and out from the bottom. Also, be sure to oil the tin before pouring the batter to help prevent sticking.
