Notes

  1. Feel free to switch things up. Please see the suggested variation in the Q & A part above.
  2. To freeze these egg muffins, let them cool down first,  place a film of cling wrap to cover the egg muffins, and freeze.
  3. To reheat, place the whole muffin pan in the refrigerator overnight so that it can fully defrost easily. Then in the morning, simply place the egg cups on a microwavable dish and reheat it in the microwave for 30 seconds. Serve it immediately!
  4. You may also reheat it by placing the whole defrosted muffin pan in the oven for about 10 minutes at 350°F.
