    Like making eggy muffins... WITHOUT my silicone muffin pan, because MiL borrows but does not return things.

    Don't ever be tempted to make egg muffins without the benefits of silicone!
    Last nights dinner will haunt me for a week just from the scrubbing up that had to be done.
    ? I've never had an issue making egg muffins with just a regular muffin tin, just make sure to grease it plenty.

      Hmm.... It was a nonstick pan and I brushed it with a good amount of coconut oil too.
      One word STUUUUUUCK.

      If you have any tips and tricks please feel free to share!

      • I used a nonstick pan, buttered the living sin out of it, and mine was fine.

        • Mine's not a nonstick, but I just place copious amounts of butter in each well, let it melt in the oven, smear it all around, and then pour in the filling.

            Do you pour the eggs into a hot pan then?
            Maybe that's my fail.

            I've always done it in a sili pan... so I'm having to relearn.

                • I slather my muffin pan in bacon grease & have never had stuck egg muffins either. Not sure how the flavor would work if you're doing sweet v. savory egg muffins though...

                    Question: is sugar (or sweetener) absolutely required for making ice cream? I know that for baking, removing an ingredient can drastically change the finished product, since baking is akin to edible chemistry, but ice cream, strictly speaking, doesn't NEED sugar does it?

                    I was just thinking about making a homemade strawberry ice cream, and wondering if the vanilla and natural sweetness of the strawberries would make it sweet enough without adding sugar.

                    • Last night I was craving ice cream and took some frozen mixed berries and heavy cream, used the stick blender and whir whir whir and got this fantastic fruity desserty stuff that tasted like sherbert. Just fruit and cream and it was plenty sweet for me.

                        I've been off sugar and artificial sweetners for a couple months, and if I even try something that has sugar or sweetner in it, it's WAY too much for me. I'd give it a whirl with just fruit or vanilla and if it's not sweet enough maybe add a little raw honey? I can't handle sweet stuff anymore, it makes my teeth hurt.

                          Sugar is the traditional sweetener, but ice cream doesn't require it AFAIK for any issues WRT consistency. Some folks substitute stevia or other sweeteners, but one could certainly make ice cream without added sweetness.

                          An ice cream with only strawberries as the sweet component would be much less sweet than what people are used to, so it's a matter of personal taste. I would think it's worth a try. Other fruit like peaches might have higher natural sugar content if a berry ice cream doesn't quite taste sweet enough.

                            The sugar aids in the overall mouth feel of the ice cream and minimizes ice crystallization (so yes, it does have a purpose beyond making it taste sweet). If that's not a concern for you, then definitely go ahead with dropping the sugar.

                              No, it's not really hot as by the time I take the pan out of the oven and start smearing the melted butter around, the pan is fairly cool when the egg mixture is added. I do add a lot of butter/fat and can see the excess pool on top of the egg mixture in the end. Maybe that's the key?

                              • Digging through abandoned lunches at work in the back of the fridge. Only things I find marginally edible (that were ever edible to begin with) are cheese sticks and fruit. All the yogurt is non-fat, there's little packets filled with grain shapes, some candy and soda, weird drinks that are designed to do who-knows-what to your body (Beyond energy drinks. Stuff with names that make you think it is designed to make you better somehow, but it's just green dye and HFCS). Darn it, people, you need to start abandoning real food for me, not this fake stuff.
