Frequently Asked Questions

How Do I Know When The Egg Muffins Are Done Cooking?

When done, they should be firm and fully set in the center, and pass the toothpick test. Insert a toothpick in the center and it should come out clean.

Can I Make These Egg Muffins Vegan?

What’s The Best Way To Fill The Muffin Cups?

You can either fill the cups with the egg mixture first, then add the toppings, or place the filling first, and then pour in the egg mixture.

What Can I Use If I Don’t Have A Muffin Tray?

You can bake them in a baking dish and cut them into squares after they’re done, or use individual silicone muffin cups.

How Can I Prevent The Egg Muffins From Sticking To The Pan?

You can either line the muffin tins with cupcake liners or spray the pan with cooking spray.

Can I Substitute Ingredients In The Egg Muffins?

Yes! You can use the vegetables, cheese, or protein of your choice. It’s a great way to do a fridge clean!
