How to Microwave an Egg…


This topic has come up in conversation a few times in the last week so I figured it was a sign…let’s finally be brave enough to talk about microwaving eggs.  Those who do it (like me) don’t really advertise it, and those who never have are intrigued by it but aren’t sure how to do it right.  It’s a little taboo for a food blogger (hey, I have 10 followers!) to advocate for the microwaving of eggs.  But I don’t see any reason to be ashamed…I love eggs and I want to eat them all the time.  Unfortunately my morning routine doesn’t leave much time for whipping up omelets and the like, however this method for cooking an egg is quick and easy and doesn’t even require butter or oil.  It also creates a nice round piece of egg that will lay perfectly between a bagel or toast.  This bowl right here is a good size and shape for microwaving an egg, I guess I should have put something next to it for scale but oh well…
Just crack an egg in the bowl…

And then add a dash of milk…

Now mix that together with a fork…

Add some salt and pepper, maybe even a little shredded cheese…and then nuke it for 30 seconds.  Take it out and shake the bowl around a little to redistribute the runny part and then put it back in for another 15 seconds.

It’s done…

You might need a spoon to help it release from the edge of the bowl…

And here is your round egg piece, suck it McDonald’s!

For today’s breakfast, I took half of a sprouted grain bagel and topped it with veggie cream cheese, then put my egg on it, then added some thin sliced tomato and avocado.  I finished it off with some salt, pepper, and dried basil.

I am a BIG fan of this combo…you can’t go wrong with some protein in the morning, am I right?!  I would love to hear how you guys like your eggs!  Or maybe you want to talk about something else?  Who likes the movie Frozen?  I saw it for the first time yesterday…I’ve now seen it 62 times, I think it’s pretty good however now I’m belting out the songs and I can’t stop…”because for the first time in forever!!!!”…my family wants to kill me.

Cheers!
