Thread: Groan... Microwave Breakfast

    Default Groan... Microwave Breakfast

    Well... I did the unthinkable. I fried? an egg in the microwave this
    morning to make a bagel breakfast. First I toasted the bagel. The toaster
    is located in the living room on the coffee table. I put it on the plastic
    plate and went into the kitchen with it. My egg rings are metal so I took a
    fingerfull of butter and greased the bottom and sides of of a 12oz. plastic
    soup bowl. Cracked the egg in the bowl and seasoned with s&p. Put the nuker
    on 1/2 power for a minute and checked it. Kept nuking it for a few seconds
    at a time until the egg looked cooked. Slid the egg onto the bagel and
    topped with a slice of American cheese and a thin slice of deli ham. Back
    into the nuker for 45 seconds.

    It was edible. Not too bad really. I had a nectarine with and some V8
    juice. Would have been better off driving through the drive up at
    McDonald's.

    I'll assume you broke the yoke before nuking, otherwise I'm surprised
    you didn't have to mop up a very messy explosion.

    Yes I did break the yolk. I learned that lesson a long time ago. Another
    big mess is whole mushrooms for some reason. The exploding egg was quite
    a mess. This excerpt from the site you posted could come in handy if
    you're in a hurry for some hard cooked, chopped egg for salad etc.

    "HARD-COOKED EGGS Separate yolks and whites of eggs into 2 lightly
    greased liquid measures or small bowls. Stir yolks with fork. Cover each
    container with plastic wrap. Cook separately on 50% or 30% power,
    Stirring once or twice, allowing about 20 to 30 seconds per yolk, about
    30 seconds to 1 minute per white. Remove when slightly underdone. Let
    stand, covered, ahout 2 minutes. Cool long enough to handle comfortably,
    then chop or chill until ready to chop."

    Michael,

    I wad inspired so I took a small carton of eggbeaters (2-serving size),
    PAM'd a small round zip-loc tub, added contents. Nuked on high (1,100W)
    covered (twist on style) for 45 seconds. Opened and gently stirred a little
    and put it back in for another 20 seconds. Came out perfect. Round, tall
    and fluffy and easily slide out onto a wimpy slice of wwwg bread with a
    shake of garlic and fresh cracked white pepper with a tall glass of ice
    water and a multivitamin.

    I never would have bothered to try. Thanks,

    Technically scrambled eggs but I don't do egg yolks anymore. And it shaped
    just right, not running all over the pan in pieces. Clean up was a cinch, a
    little dish soap in the zip-loc, fill halfway with hot water, cover, shake,
    rinse. Toss the paper plate, plastic knife and fork.

    Talking about eggs in the MW...DS's GF was telling me she decided to boil
    some eggs in the MW at work the other day - but nobody told her you have
    to puncture a small hole in the shells. She said the eggs 'exploded'
    (surprise, surprise) and she also said it took her 'ages' to clean up the
    mess <grin>.

    Eggs and microwaves just don't mix, no matter how you do it.

    That is true. I'd add that raw meat/fish and microwaves don't mix

    Quite so! She also told me that she'll *never* try that again <lol>
    I've had a modicum of success with scrambled egg in the MW, but, IMHO you
    might as well just make it in a pan... Same with rice and pasta - takes
    just as long, and I find it's easier on the stove top, anyway.

    Heh. I've got one of those 'combo' MWs - it has the convection oven/grill
    option too. I've used it to warm up garlic bread and pizzas - but I don't
    think I've ever cooked a full meal in it since I got it 5 or 6 years ago.
    I use it primarily for re-heating food and only for defrosting if I'm
    really in a hurry - IMHO, it doesn't just defrost, it par-cooks the meat
    around the edges if you are not extremely careful with the timing. The
    'cookbook' that came with it claims that you can 'roast a beef tenderloin'
    in it. I haven't bothered to find out...

    You need to invite some people and tell one to bring the tenderloin and the
    other to bring some fine red wine.
