Morning Experiments with Microwaved Eggs

there was a sale at S&R last April 1-5 and since hubby’s office is a stone throw away from one of their branches, he surprised me with a purchase.


it was a contraption that allows you to cook eggs in the microwave!


we have found a way to cook very crispy bacon in the microwave with all its grease absorbed by paper towels but i didnt know you could cook eggs in the microwave either!


hehehe!  silly me initially thought it was an april fools day prank, but i happily found out it could really be done!


the content of the box looked like a mini juicer


and inside it were aluminum lining with holes


instructions say that water was to be placed on the bottom part of the plastic encasement.


we then placed the raw egg tip down and set the microwave for 3 minutes.  i was so excited to open the microwave cooked egg when the 3 minutes were up and so hubby cracked it open hurried by my enthusiasm, burning his fingers in the process!


we found the first product too cooked and thought that we could alter the directions on the box and cook it at 2 min 30 seconds and then drop it in an ice bath, less we want to thoroughly burn all of hubby’s fingertips!


the 2nd product turned out quite well


the white was cooked and the center was soft, but i like my egg yolk a little soupy and tried to cooked the 3rd egg at 2minutes and 20 seconds.  this produced an almost raw egg which spilled and escaped my lens.

the next morning we repeated the microwaved egg experiment, this time with a different batch of eggs and went with 2 minutes 30 seconds without the ice bath and produced my soupy eggs. *big smile*

best paired with crunchy bacon and my favorite orange juice -sour and pulpy!


what a great way to start our morning!
