Why Are My Eggs SO Watery?

lukebuz | Feb 6, 201406:37 AM

So, I batch cook up some breakfast items to eat at work. Usually some breakfast burritos and egg muffins.
I cook the burrito eggs in a skillet, basically scrambled with a few bits of onion and pepper. Cook the water out of my veggies first, and then cook the eggs well done. Put into shells, plastic wrap, and freeze.
The muffin eggs go into a square muffin tin, where I scramble the egg slightly, and then bake them at 325 for about 10-15 mins. I've baked them until just barely done, and I've baked them until very very well done - almost rubbery. Assemble, wrap, freeze.
Anyways, when I reheat them in the microwave at work, they just POUR out water. They soak through 3 paper towels, soak the muffin until soggy, and if you give it a little squeeze, water will flow out all over the place. I'm not kidding here. It's bad.
There is not excessive ice or frost on them...and it's this much water if I froze them last night, or 3 weeks ago...
