How To Prevent Egg Muffins From Sticking to the Pan

how to prevent paleo egg muffins from sticking to the pan

My Experiments

I was at one of Nom Nom Paleo’s book signings recently, and an audience member asked what was the best way of preventing egg muffins from sticking to the muffin pan. Diane Rodgers and Melissa Joulwan were also there, and some interesting answers came up.

I had my own thoughts about what would work to prevent sticking, but I went ahead and did some experiments (i.e., I made some egg muffins under various conditions)! And since egg muffins are a fantastic pre-prepared Paleo breakfast/snack, I thought I’d share my findings here so no one has to scrub their muffin pan again.

Below are my 3 best methods for preventing egg muffins from sticking to the muffin pan:

You asked for a Paleo Bread Recipe

I’ve had a lot of requests for a full loaf paleo bread recipe, so here it is! It takes longer than my microwave bread recipe, but it’s worth the wait (most of the extra time is just waiting for it to cook in the oven), and you can make enough to share.

Quick Paleo Fajitas and Counting My Blessings

Do You Count Your Blessings?

A terrific friend gave me this amazing book: The Magic by Rhonda Byrne. The magic of the book is practicing being grateful for what you have and for the people in your life.

Most of us say “Thank You” when we receive something, but feeling true gratitude doesn’t always come naturally (I know it doesn’t for me!). And feeling true gratitude is what will allow us to open our hearts and minds to other great things.

And so, here I am on Day 1 of my Magic Practice:

Count Your Blessings.

Cayote Squash Curry Saute

paleo cayote squash recipe

What’s in Your Shopping Cart?

I was in the grocery store a couple days ago, and a woman was pushing a pram (a stroller, for those of you who don’t speak British). Her son (I assume) – about 5 or 6 years old was sitting in it and yelling over and over and over again, “Can I watch TV when we get home? Can I watch TV when we get home? Can I watch TV when we get home?”

He apparently knew what he was doing, because the poor woman finally snapped out a very loud and emphatic “YES.”

During this entire time, the checkout assistant was silently scanning item after item of processed food (cereal boxes, frozen meals, sodas, etc.) from the woman’s cart. Beep. Beep. Beep. Barcode after barcode after barcode.

Yes. I was literally about to go insane.

And yet I feel kinda sorry for the woman and the kid, because I really do wonder how much better behaved and less hyper that kid might be with a bit of proper food and nutrition. I’m not trying to judge, but I do wonder.

My adventure didn’t quite end there, though. As soon as the woman left, the assistant turned to my groceries, and I could tell that something changed in his eyes (I think, in retrospect, that it was fear).

I think he was terrified that my food had no barcodes. Just a bunch of thin, clear, plastic bags.

“What’s this?” The assistant turned and asked me as he fumbled for his code book.

It was basil.

Paleo Quail Egg Salad

I decided to make a simple quail egg salad with soft boiled quail eggs, butter lettuce, grape tomato (because they’re the same size and shape as quail eggs), grated carrots, and bacon bits. You can essentially add quail eggs to any salad you want.

“Your Mum is an Awful Cook!”

Ok, my aunt didn’t literally say those words, but she did give me a very funny look when I told her how much I love my mum’s cooking. My aunt then proceeded to tell me how my mum couldn’t cook anything when she was growing up (she was the youngest of 4 kids) but that she was great at dress making.

Somehow, I think 30 years of cooking three meals a day for my dad daily changed things.

This post is coming a bit late for Mother’s Day, but I have to say that I LOVE MY MUM’s COOKING.

Salted Duck Eggs Recipe

Salted Duck Eggs

If you don’t know what I’m talking about, then keep reading, because these are delicious!

What are salted duck eggs?

The photo above shows my own homemade salted duck eggs, but you can actually buy them from some Chinese grocery stores too. It’s duck eggs aged in brine, which makes the yolks turn oily, slightly salty, and amazingly delicious! And it’s really easy to make at home as I’ll explain.

And here’s one of the recipes from that cookbook (another one will be coming later this week):

How to Poach an Egg

How to Poach an Egg

I seem to learn all my egg cooking skills from Gordon Ramsey’s TV shows! Although Gordon can make cooking any dish look easy, this one really is remarkably easy, although it requires a tad more work than just dumping an egg into boiling water.

I was intrigued by the red kale at Whole Foods last night, so this recipe is made with red kale, but you can totally substitute for another variety of kale (I had no idea there were so many until I checked out wikipedia).
