How weird! I make egg muffins too and have never had this issue; if anything they tend to get a dip in the top! I don’t use cupcake liners and tend to whisk in a little pour of milk to make them fluffier– maybe that’ll help stabilize yours?

That’s definitely weird, I’ve never had that problem. Like PP I skip the liners and use milk in my eggs. Are you overstuffing them with “toppings”? Perhaps the weight of the meat and veg has something to do with the sinking.

LadyBear :  We use coconut oil spray from Trader Joe’s and it works pretty well with minimal eggs still stuck to the pan, but I imagine any old Pam-type spray or Crisco would totally work too. You just need to make sure that you really coat the cups all over so that the muffins slide out easier. I also tend to pop them out when they’re still a bit warm and that usually makes it easier.

Are you using skim milk at all? 2% works better for baking and re heating and keeping things more solid

LadyBear :  I use a generic canola oil spray and just really lube up the pan. I make them so often that the liners feel wasteful.

LadyBear :  i usually just spray some pam in my non stick muffin tins.  A little more milk or cream might sollidify them a bit – I’ve had this prob before too.

I make these all the time too! I don’t use liners, I just have a nice non-stick muffin pan (I’ve used a cheaper one before and it stuck like crazy, no matter what I did), and I coat it with a bunch of olive oil spray, making sure I get it coated completely. I also add a bit of milk to get them fluffy.

I’ve never had an issue with bottom sinking (the top does lower after you take them out of the muffin tin, that’s just the nature of eggs). Maybe you aren’t cooking them long enough? Perhaps your oven temp isn’t high enough. Everyone’s oven is different, I know that I used to have this crappy old oven that got progressively worse temp-wise. If you have an oven thermometer, check your oven to make sure it’s at the right temp.

It’s also possible that you just loaded in too much stuff.
