I like to cook eggs in my toaster oven, but the one thing that I don't like about it is how the eggs will stick to my pan after cooling and its just so difficult to clean off afterwards. I end up having to take a very stiff brush to the pan and even then it takes a full 5 minutes of scrubbing to clean it off.
How do I keep the eggs from sticking to the pan in the first place? A few things:
- It's usually around 3 eggs, whisked in a bowl, and salted before being poured into the pan (I think its called a fritata?)
- The pan is definitely NOT non-stick. I think it's an aluminum cake pan, but I don't really remember.
- I butter the pan before pouring the eggs in.
- Oven is set to 150 C, cooks for about 10 minutes. I realize I might be overcooking things, but would NOT overcooking solve my problem?
I need some advice here. Is there a way to solve my problem with this pan or should I just go out and buy a new one?
