Eggs in Muffin Top Pan?

I have to admit -- I have no business being anywhere near a kitchen, but I am bound and determined to try. LOL!

Can anyone tell me if I can make eggs in a muffin top pan? I was thinking the shape would be perfect to make eggs for Revolution Roll Egg "McMuffins".

Suggestions on how to cook them (or if this is even a good idea)?

Sure, I'd say you can bake them. Scramble them up with some cream and if you want to add in any veggies like bell pepper, onion, etc or bacon bits and then portion them out into the cups, only fill about halfway and then bake at 350 til done. I can't give you the exact time on these, you just have to keep checking until they are done.

It should work fine but I'm not sure if the eggs would fit in the cups or overflow. I made the recipe below in a regular size muffin tin and you can see that the cups were very full.



BAKED EGGS AND MUSHROOMS IN HAM CUPS
6 ounces fresh mushrooms, finely chopped
2 tablespoons shallot, minced, 1/2 ounce
1 tablespoon butter
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon pepper
1 tablespoon sour cream
6 thin slices ham (I used round "deli" thin packaged slices)
6 eggs

Cook mushrooms and shallots in butter with salt and pepper until liquid has evaporated. Remove from heat and stir in sour cream. Fit 1 slice of ham into each of 6 oiled (I used non-stick spray) muffin tin cups. It's ok for the ham to stick up and over edges (mine were a little too small), it will shrink down a bit. Divide mushroom mixture among the ham cups and spread gently into bottom. A finger works well for this. This will help hold the ham up when adding the egg. Crack one egg into each cup (they will be very full) and sprinkle top with a little salt and pepper. Bake at 400║ for 15 minutes until whites are cooked, but yolks are still a little runny. Check before the 15 minutes are up. My yolks were soft in some spots, but starting to get well done in others. Carefully remove from pan. I used a soup spoon to scoop them out, using a butter knife in my other hand to help push them onto the spoon.

I went and filled one of the cups of my muffin top pan with water and then poured it into a standard size muffin cup. The muffin top cups don't hold quite as much as the regular size, but it's pretty close. It should work fine if you're making scrambled egg "patties" and just pour in enough to fill the cups. They should set up pretty quickly in the oven and not run over. By the way, I used large size eggs.

You could preheat the muffin top pan first so the egg would set up pretty much as soon as you put it in.

You could also use a round cookie cutter in a skillet on the stovetop. Spray the cookie cutter with a little cooking spray, place it in the heated skillet, and pour eggs into cookie cutter.

Check your SuperWalmart for the frozen egg patties that come in a bag. They are delicious and so easy to have around.

Thanks all!

I tried this -- made 3 eggs (with just heavy cream/s/p) which filled 1/2 way each of 6 muffin tops.

They were thin, but the Egg "McMuffins" were FABULOUS!!

I think on the next batch, I will preheat the pan as Kevin mentioned and pour them a little fuller like Linda's -- maybe 4 eggs for 6 muffin tops.

Thanks everyone!!
