Scrambled Eggs – Quick Tip

So, I admit it. When it comes to cooking scrambled eggs in a hurry, I lean on my friend the microwave. While I feel it best to cook in a pan on the stove, I wanted to share a quick tip (that’s no secret) on how to best cook the protein-rich breakfast item in a flash (without the clean up of a pan).

As you may know, the center portion of the dish of eggs cooks last.  So, as pictured here, take a shot glass (microwave safe) and place it in the center and cook.  Because now, you’ve voided the center, it will cook evenly.

Take time to cook in a pan if you can.  But, if you are in a hurry, try this.  Let me know if it works for you.

P.S. Make sure you spray or butter the dish to ensure an easier clean up.

    How long do you cook an egg in the microwave? It is ok to cook it on full power?
