No Matter The Pan, You Need Muffin Liners When Baking Egg Bites

Egg bites are not only an ideal breakfast item but also one of the best uses for your muffin tin. They're pretty much mini frittatas, but even better because they're already perfectly portioned and ready to serve when they come out of the oven. While putting this delightful dish together is generally very simple, it's important to keep in mind that eggs are particularly susceptible to sticking to the pan you cook them in, even if that's a nonstick pan. Because of this, you're going to want to use a muffin liner every time you make egg bites. 

It's not that food sticking to a pan ruins your dish; It just makes the experience of preparing, serving, and eating it much less enjoyable. As a result, you should always try to avoid even the possibility of having your food stick to its bakeware. Luckily, it's very easy to prevent the sticking.

A liner plus spray keeps caked-on messes away

To keep your egg bites from gluing themselves to the muffin tin, you want to keep them from ever making contact with the tin at all. To achieve this separation, you'll just need to pop a foil muffin or cupcake liner into each well of your muffin tin. Then, with a light spritz of cooking spray, coat each liner to make sure the eggs don't stick to that either. Finally, you'll simply pour your egg mixture directly into the liners and bake them according to your recipe's instructions.

If you don't have any muffin liners handy, there's no need to worry. You can simply use cooking spray or butter to coat each well of your muffin tin wells before pouring your egg mixture in.

Hopefully, this handy trick will save both your egg bites and your muffin tins from destruction, but if you ever forget and find yourself in the midst of culinary despair, you can always check out our easy tip for ridding your muffin tin of the dreaded baked on residue.
