      I am thinking about cooking an egg this morning. I like to microwave for less clean up. The microwave has a lazy-susan like thing in there. Good morning!

      I always use a little butter and a frying pan. I've never used a microwave to cook an egg but it would be a good idea to pierce the shell to avoid a small explosion.

      The what are you cooking thread would be a better place for this question.

      Wow, the English language really has mutated since I was a youth. Looks like I'll go with hard-boiled this morning.

      Using a stove for this one. I guess never use the microwave to cook. Thanks everyone! I will try to augment my posts to make a bit more sense.

      Well I would crack the egg, cook it on high 90 and stir occasionally to make it fluffy.

      You can "Hard Boil" multiple eggs at a time in the oven; put them in a muffin tin and place in the oven at 350 for 30 minutes.

      Perfect hard boiled eggs; and easy to pre-cook a dozen or whatever you like on Sunday so you have them all week for breakfast, salads, etc.

      Lookup "cloud egg".

      Basically separate whites and yolks. Whip the whites like you would for cake frosting. Mix in some parm and some lunch meat or some kind of meat. Drop on a cookie sheet that has a wax paper on it. Cook in over at I think 300 or something for a couple min. Then carefully place the yolk on top and finish cooking.

      Use olive oil instead of butter.


      I vote 2-3 egg omelette

      diced ham
      shredded mozzarella
      diced tomatoes
      basil
      arugula
      sliced pepperoncini
      parmesan, oregano & red pepper flakes on top
      ...

      Oooh; forgot about "Mug Omelettes" as well, so easy and taste just as good!

      Take a large microwave safe mug, crack 2 eggs in (cooking spray first if you want to avoid sticking) and about a teaspoon of milk; mix it up well. add cheese and any toppings you want (mushrooms, onion, ham, etc) chopped small, salt and pepper to taste; stir it all up and microwave for 30 seconds. Stir again then microwave for 45 more and you have a mug omelette

      Well, a lot of my dealings here have been in trouble shooting and swapping. I am thinking about making a domestic market move because the foreign stuff is a bit perplexing to the common guy around here.

      *however to stay on topic here, I like your work there on the website there. I went with the hard boil egg this morning. Boil water egg covered 5 minutes, let it cool. I got the shell everywhere. It was good to consume the egg white and not the yolk, as I am diet conscious.

      *An* egg? None for me. Boiled, fried, scrambled... all are revolting to me.

      However...

      *Lots* of eggs? I love a tortilla española (http://www.seriouseats.com/2016/07/h...-omelette.html) or frittata. Yeah, I know it's close to being scrambled eggs, or omelette-like, but it's different enough and the potatoes make up enough of the mass that it isn't so... eggy....


      Also, the thread title is a fail. It should have been "How do you like your eggs?" so the first reply could have been "unfertilized".

      It is possible to do scrambled eggs in the microwave. Having done it before:

      -Stir every 30 seconds to scramble & prevent explosions
      -Use something like a Corelle bowl so it's easier to clean up after
      -Plug your nose because it stinks and it doesn't taste the best

      Frankly, it's just as quick to do them, scrambled or any other way you like, in a frying pan, and it tastes better.

      Omelettes are the best though. Butter, onions, peppers (jalapenos too), cheese. That's perfection. If you have some already chopped from something else (like taco night) even that's quick.
